Install Google Play On Fire TV Alternative

Install Google Play On Fire TVThis tutorial will show you how to install Google Play On Fire TV alternative which will work just as well and best of all, we aren’t required to root our device.

In this article and video below, I will be installing a Google Play alternative called Aptoide and best of all, this version is optimized for streaming devices such as the Fire TV/Stick.  One of the problems with installing android applications onto the Fire TV or Stick is that they don’t work very well with the remote.  That isn’t the case with this optimized version of Aptoide since it has been specifically created for our streaming devices such as the Amazon Fire TV or FireStick.

If you choose to install Google Play on Fire TV, then you will be required to root your device and go through a ton of steps to complete the process.  This is an easier method and best of all, most of the apps that are available in Google Play are also available in Aptoide Android App store.

Important:  It is strongly suggested that you watch the video below the written steps for detailed instructions on this process.  The written steps below the video are meant for general steps and do not cover the exactly details.

How To Install Google Play On Fire TV Alternative Guide

  • Go into Fire TV Settings / Device or Sytem / Developer Options / turn on Apps from Unknown Sources.
  • Go back to home screen of Fire TV or FireStick and install the free application Downloader for the Amazon App Store.
  • Open Downloader and input the following download url – into the address location for downloading apps.  Go ahead and install the program.
  • Open Aptoide and enjoy installing Android Applications onto your Fire TV or FireStick that previously required side-loading.

    Hi Troy, Great tutorial video! Thank you so much for sharing! Do you know if I can get the Reddit app on Aptoide and if I will be able to watch live sports with it?

    Thanks and keep up the great work!

    Every time I try to install the rapid app installer on my fire tv using ES I get the message app not installed. Any idea what could be wrong?

    Hello Troy,

    I downloaded 1Mobile Market with the Aptoide app for my fire stick, and it states that it may not work efficiently on TVs, I do see that the market operates somewhat differently from the apk on the fire stick, however when you use Aptoide for this app and downloading a VPN from Aptoide will it work?

    Troy, How can I get my tv screen to rescale to view the apps correctly?

    • Troy April 7, 2018 at 2:13 pm - Reply

      The newer Fire TVs no longer allow scaling. You can only do this on your television. Usually settings within your television will allow for this. Might be called “overscan” settings.

    you went to install another app not google play !

    • Troy April 2, 2018 at 9:08 am - Reply

      Hello Abdu, as my tutorial states, you can’t install Google Play unless you root your device and some models don’t allow for that. My title reads Install Google Play on Fire TV Alternative. I haven’t found too many apps that Aptoide doesn’t provide that Google Play does.

      Hi Mike, I am just now getting into the Echo products. I haven’t had time to look into this yet.

    How do I ADD apps now that I’ve installed rapid installer? Also how do I delete some of the apps that I added from the tutorial…the ones that charge?

    • Troy March 19, 2018 at 2:25 pm - Reply

      Hi Connie, not sure what you are asking. I show in the video exactly how to install the apps with Rapid App Installer. Please watch video again. If you want to uninstall an app, go into Settings / Applications / Manage Applications / choose the app you want to uninstall and click Uninstall.
