Best Amazon Fire TV Stick Bluetooth Keyboard 2018
The Amazon Fire TV Stick is a nice addition to any home with tons of apps and streaming services.

The remote control that comes with the Fire Stick works OK but can be a pain to use with the on-screen keyboard.

Yes Alexa can be used but is not always accurate creating times when it is easier to simply type than speak into the mic.

Trying to type in a movie name or doing a simple search is much easier with a small Bluetooth keyboard.

With that in mind here is our picks for best Bluetooth keyboards to use with the Amazon Fire TV Stick.

As always be sure to read the reviews on Amazon or elsewhere to be sure a unit is a good fit for you.

Fire TV Stick Versions and Keyboard Compatibility
The Fire TV Stick Gen 1, 2, and 3 have different hardware and software.

This can make finding a keyboard confusing as what works great for one person may not work for another.

Most Bluetooth Keyboards will work with the Fire Stick but be sure to check its features and compatibility.
 
How to Setup a Bluetooth Keyboard With the Fire TV Stick
Pairing a Bluetooth Keyboard is easy to do with the Fire TV Stick.

  1. At the menu bar go to Settings.
  2. Go to Controllers & Bluetooth Devices.
  3. Go to Other Bluetooth Devices.
  4. Select Add Bluetooth Devices.
  5. Find your keyboard and select it.

Some keyboard will have their own setup such as pressing the FN key and Bluetooth for it to go into paring mode. Each keyboard will have its own setup which is usually a quick easy thing to do and should be in the instructions.
 
Summary
While the Amazon remote that comes with the Fire TV Stick is good it lacks when typing needs to be done.

Most will stay with the default remote but a Bluetooth keyboard is a low-cost fix that makes things much easier.

If you find the default Fire Stick on-screen keyboard annoying, the easy answer to this is a mini keyboard.

The above units are simple some of the ones we have found that work well with no-doubt many more available.

    I also Tried my Zagg Slimbook it is also Compatible with my fire cube 4K second generation . It works well but you have to play with it to find various functions . It was quite a challenge but now I like it. I bought the zagg slim book for my iPad Pro 10.5 originally.

    I’m very curious, has anyone been able to actually make a built-in touch-pad on any wireless keyboard (connected via bluetooth) perform as a real mouse on any Amazon Fire Sticks, particularly version 2 of the fire sticks? That seems to be quite a mystery, whether or not such touch-pads can be used to (1) move the cursor around on the screen, and (2) to actually “click on” (or select) any hyperlinks shown on the screen.

      Yes it can. I own an Auvipal and I use the built-in touch pad now and again and hasn’t given me any problems.
