The arrival of Fire TV to Amazon Echo Show 15 has meant an exponential increase in the options offered by this smart screen It can be hung on the wall or used with a base anywhere. At the moment you had to control the choice of content through the use of touch gestures, but this has changed due to the arrival of Amazon’s Pro remote controlwhich includes among other things access to the Alexa voice assistant.
This accessory, which to use bluetooth technology to communicate, it offers the features that are common in remote controls -including direct access buttons to streaming video platforms- and, therefore, it is very useful with the Echo Show 15 (and other Fire TV devices from the well-known online store). The configuration that has to be carried out is not particularly complex, but we are going to show you step by step what you have to do to make pairing quick and easy.
This is how you synchronize the Alexa Pro remote with the Echo Show 15
Before doing anything you have to check that you have put the batteries in the remote control -are included in the box-, so there is no problem with it. Next, you must check within the Settings of the smart screen that you have the Bluetooth connectivity activated (Otherwise, change the situation, because if you don’t it will be impossible to perform the steps). When the preparation is complete, you have to do the following:
- Bring up the Echo Show menu by sliding your finger down from the top of the screen. Among the options that you will see available, click on Settings.
- The next thing is that you locate the section called Fire TV Settings and, when you use it, you will see several sections. One of them is what is called Fire TV Remotes. Click on it.
- Follow the instructions on the screen, but the basics are that you have to press the button with a house icon on the remote for 10 seconds continuously. When you see that the LED turns orange and blinks, the synchronization will be established and a code will appear that you have to press to complete the process.
- With that done, you’re done and from now on you can navigate the Fire TV interface with the remote as usual and, obviously, in a more comfortable way than before.
As you have seen, everything is quite intuitive and you only need to use the options that exist in the Amazon Echo Show 15 itself and press one of the buttons on the remote control -which, by using Bluetooth technology, offers compatibility with the Intelligent Screen-. You can always unpair the accessory if you you want by removing it from the synchronized list within the Fire TV Section that is in the Settings.
