AMAZON Fire TV devices like the Cube and the Stick have many useful features that you may be missing out on.

Below are some of the best ways to make the most of Amazon Fire TV.

Games on Fire TV

It's possible to play games on Amazon Fire TV.

Classics like Who Wants to be A Milionaire and Sonic are avaliable via the Apps section.

Get them by clicking on the Fire TV homepage menu, then Apps and then find the games on the relevant drop down menu.

It's perfect if you're stuck at home and bored of binge watching but need a fun distraction.

Pair your headphones

If you have Bluetooth headphones and an Amazon Fire TV device then you can pair the two and have a quieter viewing experience.

This might be useful if you want to watch TV without waking up the rest of your household.

You need to go to Settings then Controllers & Bluetooth Devices and then Other Bluetooth Devices.

Then make sure your headphones are ready for pairing and the two devices should sync.

No more menu clicks

If you don't like the clicking sound of the Fire TV menu as you scroll through it then you can turn it off.

Head to Settings and then click Display & Sounds and then Audio and then Navigation Sounds.

Then you just need to switch it off.

Fire TV on holiday

You can take your Amazon Fire TV stick away with you on your travels and connect it to hotel WiFi.

You just need to plug it in and go to Settings and then Network to pick a WiFi network of your choice.

Amazon Fire TV and Alexa

You can use your Amazon Alexa smart assistant by pressing the microphone button on the Fire TV remote and asking a question or making a command.

You don't have to say "Alexa" to get its attention.

Amazon Echo smart speakers or the Fire TV Cube can also listen to commands that regard Fire TV.

You don't even have to ask Fire TV Alexa about TV related topics.

Ask the virtual assistant about the weather or the score in a game.
