How do I search on Amazon Fire Stick?

If you have just recently bought an Amazon Fire Stick, navigating through the device is going to be one of the toughest jobs for you. While the Fire OS interface is quite simple and user-friendly, for a first time user, it may come as a challenge.

You can start using your Amazon Fire Sticks soon as you setup your device. You can turn on your device by pressing any button on your Fire Stick remote and enjoy the device after a quick welcome video.

Although, we must tell you, there is not much to use on the device itself. Like smart phones, you have to install applications you want to use on the device to enjoy any content. You can install any application you need from the Amazon Fire App Store. You can download and install applications like browser, YouTube and Netflix etc.

To search for anything on your Amazon Fire Stick, you first need to get to your home screen. From there, you can use all sorts of navigation tools to find your way across the media streaming device. Simply use the directional keypad on your Fire TV remote: If you need help then contact Amazon fire stick tech support team.
