Amazon’s Fire Stick 4K ships with Alexa Voice integration and it gives users access to streaming services such as YouTube, HBO, NBC, Hulu, ESPN, Sling and Amazon Prime Video among others. As if these features aren’t impressive enough, Amazon is constantly updating the Fire Stick 4K with new features and a brand-new update has recently arrived which introduces support for Miracast. With that said, today we are going present everything important that there is to know about Fire Stick 4K’s latest update.
Introducing Support for Miracast
With the moderate price of $50, Fire Stick 4K is one of the most powerful streaming sticks available in the world. Nonetheless, the performances of the streaming stick have just been taken to the next level because a brand-new update has introduced support for Miracast.
The Miracast feature makes it possible for Fire Stick 4K users to mirror programs to smartphones, tablets and PCs that support them. What’s cool about Miracast is the fact that it will basically make any smartphone, tablet or PC act as an attached display. We should note that Fire Stick 4K is not the first Amazon device to receive support for Miracast. Amazon first rolled out support for Miracast to Fire OS 6 on the Fire TV 3.

The only thing that Fire Stick 4K users need to do is to make sure that their smartphone, tablet or PC supports Miracast and then simply download the app on the targeted device. Moreover, Miracast is support by nearly all Windows-powered devices which means that Fire Stick 4K users will be able to their PC’s monitors as an attached display without any issues.
