This tutorial will show you how to install Google Play On Firestick alternative. This alternative app will work just as well as Google Play and best of all, we aren’t required to root our device.
In the article and video below, I will install a Google Play alternative called Aptoide TV. This app works similar to Google Play and best of all, this version is optimized for streaming devices such as the Fire TV and Firestick.
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 Firestick, 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.
