Highlights

  • An update for the Fire TV Stick 4K will enable the feature for users

Amazon Fire TV Stick 4K has received a new software update that enables screen mirroring. The company claims that it was one of the top requested features by the customers. The feature was already present on Amazon Fire TV Stick with the All New Alexa Voice remote, and will be available to the users of the Amazon Fire TV Stick 4K after they install the update.
