How to Get Zwift on Firestick & Fire TV

With Zwift, turn your Firestick into your personal fitness trainer.

Key Highlights

  • Zwift is not supported for Firestick and Fire TV models.
  • You can screen mirror the Zwift app to Firestick using a smartphone.

The Zwift app is unavailable for Amazon Firestick and Fire TV devices since it cannot process 3D rendering. Therefore, screen mirroring is the only option to access Zwift on Fire TV Stick. Even if you sideload Zwift on your Firestick using the Downloader app, accessing it is impossible because of its hardware requirements. This article illustrates how to screen mirror Zwift on Fire TV Stick.


How to Screen Mirror Zwift on Firestick

Before you start, connect your Firestick to WiFi, which must be the same as your smartphone.

#1: Press the Home key on the Fire TV remote for a few seconds and select Mirroring.

Note: Alternatively, go to Settings > Display & Sounds > Display Mirroring.

Enable mirroring to cast Zwift to Firestick

#2: Ensure your Firestick and Android are connected to the same WiFi.

#3: Head to the Notification Panel menu and select the Cast menu.

#4: Select your Firestick and grant permission to mirror your Android screen.

#5: Launch the Zwift app and play the training videos. If you don’t have the app, install it from the Play Store.

Enjoy watching Zwift videos on your Fire TV devices using the Cast feature.

Why Can’t I Use Zwift APK on Firestick

You can use the Downloader app on Firestick to sideload the Zwift app using an APK file. The Zwift app requires device pairing, and you must join a virtual room to use the app. However, if you open the Zwift app, you will see a pop-up that reads, “This app is not compatible with your TV.” So, you can’t access Zwift on a Fire TV Stick 4K or any model.


Is Zwift free to use?

No. You can’t access Zwift without a subscription. But you can claim a 14-day free trial on Zwift if you sign up for the first time.

    1. Hi Chris! Thanks for commenting.

      As I tried the links work fine on both the methods. Do clear your firestick cache and give it a try. Or you can also try installing the previous versions of the app from the link.

    2. Use you es explorer and edit name of downloaded file by putting .APK at the end of it (long press on the file, in internal storage/downloaded on your es explorer then edit and add the .APK)
      Now when you open in downloader it will give you option to install
