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.

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

AuviPal R9 2.4GHz Mini Wireless Keyboard Mouse Combo with 2 in 1 USB Cable for Streaming TV Stick (2nd Gen)/ Raspberry Pi/Xbox/PS/Android/Mac/PC – RGB Colorful Backlit Version
The AuviPal R9 is a small mini keyboard with a touch-pad in the center.
It includes a USB OTG adapter that plug into a second gen Fire TV stick which allows for a wireless USB dongle to plug in.

1byone Wireless Bluetooth Keyboard with Built-in Multi-touch Touchpad, Touch Keyboard for Windows / Android Tablet / Galaxy Tabs / Smartphones, Black
1byone makes this great midsize unit with a built-in touch-pad.
It is not as small as a mini unit but in-between a standard and small keyboard that also has a touch-pad built-in to move the mouse courser about.
This is one of my favorite options and setup in the living room with a Fire TV Stick to quickly navigate the menu along with Kodi.
As with all touch-pad combinations while in the main Fire Stick menu only the keyboard buttons work. The touch-pad works when using Kodi or other Apps once they open up.
It uses 2 AAA batteries so is not rechargeable but last a long time with a rated 60 day standby mode.

The Fintie mini wireless Bluetooth keyboard is a 10-inch ultra thin unit that is compatible with Bluetooth devices such as the Fire TV Stick.
It pairs easily to the Fire TV with a security code for added protection.
All the buttons worked well with the Fire TV including the Home and Search buttons.

While not as small as many other mini keyboards it works well and is a good unit for those looking for something between a standard unit and a mini.
It has wide compatibility and can work with most any device from an iPad Pro to an Android TV Stick.
It fits well into a Fire TV Stick setup with keyboard on the bottom and mini touch-pad at the top.
iClever Wireless Folding Keyboard (Designed for Better Typing), Ultra Slim Rechargeable Bluetooth Keyboard for Windows iOS Mac Android Tablets Smartphones, Gray
iClever has several Bluetooth keyboards that work well with the fire TV Stick.
This one is small and easily stored away when not in use. It folds in half for easy storage.
Since it folds up for easy storage it would be better for anyone who travels a lot and takes a Fire Stick with them.
How to Setup a Bluetooth Keyboard With the Fire TV Stick
Paring a Bluetooth Keyboard is easy to do with the Fire TV Stick.
Go to System –> Controllers & Bluetooth Devices
Go to Other Bluetooth Devices –> Add Bluetooth Devices.
The Fire Stick will start to scan for any Bluetooth device, click connect when your unit is located.
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.
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.
