Alexa Tip: Linking an Alexa Device to Fire TV

You can link multiple Alexa devices to a single Fire TV device, but you can’t link multiple Alexa devices to multiple Fire TV devices. Essentially, you should consider putting an Alexa device in each room where a Fire TV device exists and just link one device to one device.

Linking is easy if you only have a single Fire TV device configured to your Amazon account. To link in this scenario, just say .. “Alexa, search for <movie name> on Fire TV”

Just by using “Fire TV” in your request, tells Alexa to link the devices.

However, if you have more than one Fire TV device registered to your account, you’ll need to manually assign an Alexa device to a Fire TV device using the Alexa app for your smartphone (or tablet). This is also where you can unlink a device or configure the connections.
