Why You Should Pair Bluetooth Speaker to Amazon FireStick?

  • The best Bluetooth speaker for fire stick enables you to enjoy your favourite shows with richer sound quality.
  • Bluetooth speakers can handle high volumes conveniently without blowing out or cracking the sound.

  • You can also connect other Bluetooth audio devices (headphones or ear pods) to the FireStick. It will help you to stream your favourite shows without bothering other people with the loud volume.
  • You can place the Bluetooth speaker near you and enjoy the clear sound even at low volume.

How To Disconnect Fire Stick From Bluetooth Speaker?

Once you are finished streaming and enjoying the boosted sound system, you can unpair the fire stick from the Bluetooth speaker and return to your device’s default audio system.

Things to Consider while Connecting Fire TV Stick to Bluetooth Speakers

  • Your Bluetooth speaker must not be paired with any other device while trying to pair with FireStick. Otherwise, it will not show its availability and will remain undetected.
  • Similarly, the Fire Streaming Stick can connect to multiple devices simultaneously. However, it can play audio from one device at a time. So, ensure to unpair any other device (headphones) before connecting to your Bluetooth speaker.
  • If you experience trouble connecting the devices, ensure both devices (Bluetooth speaker and FireStick) are in pairing mode.
  • You can also restart or power cycle both devices if there is trouble establishing a connection.
  • Your FireStick must be connected to the internet to pair with a Bluetooth speaker.
  • Poor internet connection may cause trouble in pairing. Or, it may result in losing the connection repeatedly – interrupted streaming!
  • If your Amazon Fire Stick Bluetooth is not working, it can be because of too many devices in the old pairing list. It makes the memory of your device for pairing devices full. For this, go to the ‘Other Bluetooth Devices’ and delete the old-paired devices.
  • Sometimes trouble in streaming or connection building can be resolved by resetting your FireStick. Resetting to factory defaults may help you to resolve the issues, and you can enjoy streaming your favourite programs again.
  • Unfortunately, the fire stick cannot control the volume on your Bluetooth devices. If your Bluetooth speaker doesn’t have a volume control option, you must install a Bluetooth app for FireStick. This app provides you with a media volume slider to adjust the volume.

Why Won’t My Firestick Connect To My Speaker?

It can be because of several reasons:

  • Your Bluetooth speaker might be paired with another device.
  • Your FireStick might not be connected to Wi-Fi.
  • Poor internet connection may also cause trouble in establishing a connection.
  • Ensure both devices are in pairing mode.
