As long as you have an Amazon Fire TV and live in the US or Canada, you can download TikTok and start watching videos right away. The opportunity is thanks to a joint collaboration between Amazon and ByteDance, owner of TikTok.

- On your Amazon Fire TV, select the app store.
- Download the TikTok app on your Amazon Fire TV.
- Open minded tick tock on your Amazon Fire TV.
- If you have a TikTok account, click log in. Then you can use either the text code displayed on the screen or the QR code to log in.

The process is simple and once you start watching videos, managing it via your Alexa remote or Alexa devices is even easier. If you don’t already have an account on TikTok, you can register for a new one. TikTok makes it easy to sign up for a new account using information from your Facebook, Google, Apple, or Twitter accounts.

If you have an Alexa device at home and the app has already been downloaded to your TV, just say “Alexa, open TikTok”. The app will automatically open on your TV and you can verbally ask Alexa to play or pause the videos on your TV.
On the other hand, if you don’t have an Alexa device, you can still verbally open your TikTok app with Alexa Voice Remote. You can also use the play or pause controls on your remote to control your videos.
You can use most of the app’s features on your TV just as you would on your phone. Likewise, you can still add videos to your favorites, switch between videos you follow and your feed, discover new videos, and more.
Unfortunately, there is no way to create your own TikTok videos from your Fire TV and upload them to your profile for others to view.
