How to Enable Volume Leveler on Fire TV & Firestick

The volume leveler feature on the Amazon Fire TV and Firestick prevents those occasions when the volume level suddenly gets louder. This problem often occurs when watching content during certain commercials or during loud special effects.

The volume leveler evens out the volume so that you aren’t hit with the annoyance of suddenly loud volume that wakes up your entire house.

In this post, we’ll cover how to turn on the volume leveler on the Fire TV and Firestick. We’ll also cover how to enable the TruVolume setting for Toshiba and Insignia Fire TV users.


Turning Volume Leveler On for Fire TV & Firestick

  1. Press the Home button to get to the home screen.
  2. Select the Settings option then choose Display & Sounds.
  3. Select Audio.
