Can't Play Your Fire TV Audio on Your Echo Devices

One or more paired Echo speakers not playing sound in Home Theater mode? Use these suggestions.

  • Verify that your devices are compatible with home theater mode.
  • Verify that your Echo speakers are "online" in the Alexa app.
  • Connect all devices to the same Wi-Fi network.
  • Turn up the volume on your speakers.
  • Play a video title from a different streaming media app.
  • Make sure to select the home theater audio option on your Fire TV to match your activity. For video playback disable Gaming Audio. For gaming, enable Gaming Audio.
  • Restart devices in your home theater group. For Echo devices temporarily unplug them from power. For Fire TV, go to Settings > My Fire TV > Restart. Wait a few minutes before playing content.

If the issue persists, delete the home theater group in the Alexa app and set it up again.
