Got some great movies / TV shows on your Android or iPhone you want to cast to your Firestick?  Use this guide to quickly and easily set up Firestick Mirroring.  Some people know this feature by name as “MiraCast“.  In this tutorial, we show you how to set everything up (including Airscreen / AllCast) step-by-step with screenshots.

TIP:  Most “casting apps” only let you cast individual video files to Amazon Firestick.  But I found this excellent app called AirScreen which lets you cast your entire Android phone’s screen to your Firestick / Fire TV.  This means you can watch streaming TV / movies on your Android phone’s browser – and simply cast the entire Android screen to Fire TV!

Step 1:  Enable Firestick Mirroring
