What do you need to mirror Windows 10 to Amazon Fire Stick

The Fire TV Stick 4K is a terrific device for pennies that covers most of the needs of the modern user. The Stick can spin any content from the Internet, whether it’s online cinema, streaming service Netflix or Youtube, torrent or IPTV.

It supports multi-channel audio, advanced HDR Dolby Vision, and auto framing. At the same time, the device is very reliable and does not overheat even with many hours of use. It also comes with a handy Bluetooth remote with voice search. The disadvantages include the need for an initial setup. To bring the stick to a decent look, you need to sit with it for an evening or two.

When you realize you can’t find the content you want on your TV or you just want to try playing video games on a big screen, mirroring your PC or smartphone/tablet is a good idea to break up the routine. If you have a Fire TV Stick, that’s great and shouldn’t be a problem at all. Although, it will take a little time for those who want to mirror the Apple device.

Also, try to have your devices within at least 30 feet of each other before casting.

Is it possible to mirror the Windows 10 screen on the Firestick without Wi-Fi

If you want to connect the Windows 10 screen to the Fire Stick, you only need a Wi-Fi connection. You don’t need the Internet. If you are using an HDMI cable, the Fire Stick does not have an additional HDMI port for receiving data. If you need to connect your laptop or PC to your TV but don’t have Wi-Fi, you’re better off without the Fire Stick at all.

If your smartphone has Mobile Hotspot or you use a hotspot device, you can connect both the Fire Stick and your Windows 10 PC to that network.
