Unlike other models of the Amazon Fire TV, the Firestick and Fire TV Stick Lite does not have a USB port. You can still connect a keyboard to the Firestick with a little tech know-how though. We cover what you need in this guide.
Connecting Keyboard to Firestick
- If you don’t own one already, purchase a Micro USB to USB adapter (otherwise known as an OTG adapter).
- Connect the power cable to the adapter’s Micro USB port.
- Connect the Firestick to the other Micro USB port on the adapter.
- Connect a USB keyboard to the standard USB port on the adapter.
That’s it! The keyboard will now work with the Fire TV. If you use a keyboard with a built in touch-pad, that will work in the Silk browser and a few other Fire TV apps as well. Wireless keyboards also work!
I hope this guide has got you successfully using a keyboard with your Amazon Firestick. Please leave a comment if you need further help.
