How to Cast to Firestick using Android and Windows [2020]

Published

on

Amazon Fire TV Stick is the most famous streaming device used. It has plenty of apps like Netflix, Prime Video, PS Vue, Vudu, Hulu, and many more. Apart from streaming videos, Firestick can also be used as a casting device. By using Firestick, you can cast/mirror your Android screen on the Firestick connected TV very easily. Let us discuss more on how to Cast to Firestick in this post.

How to Cast to Firestick using Android Phone?

To cast your mobile device on Firestick, you have to enable display mirroring the screen on Firestick. There are two ways to enable it.

Why you need a VPN

While Streaming online, your IP will be exposed easily. Hence ISPs (Internet Service Providers), app developers, government agencies and hackers can track your online activities with ease. At the end of the day, you may face some legal problems if you have streamed any copyrighted contents. To avoid these problems, we recommend you to use VPN (Virtual Private Network). A good VPN lets you hide your real identity by switching your IP to different locations. On the other hand, VPN is also helpful in accessing the media that are geo-restricted. Some of the apps/services like Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, Hulu, BBC iPlayer and more are geo-restricted in certain countries. To bypass those restrictions, you need to install a VPN on your device.

NordVPN Deal:

After trying out several free and paid VPN services, we recommend you to use NordVPN. It is regarded as the best VPN to safeguard your privacy. While purchasing the NordVPN, make sure to select the annual plans rather than selecting the monthly plans. Moreover, you will also get a 70% instant discount on a 3-year plan.
