Voice Search on FireStick

I have 7 FireTV Sticks 4K and have been using them for years.

Recently, the ability to do a voice search on Cinema, or any other APK has disappeared - on all of them. I’ve hunted through settings, and tried everything I can think of to try to turn it back on.

Has this happened to anyone else? Any ‘fix’ that I can use? Thanks!

One of my Firestick 4Ks is like this, can’t do voice-typing in anything. It beeps like it is listening but never works. It has also had issues with the wi-fi connecting but telling me that there is no internet access, when every other device I have works fine. Curious if you’ll get a helpful answer here…


I had this problem. Couldn’t fix it but found it worked when I returned to the stock launcher. When returning to a custom launcher it was hit or miss what apps it worked on but somehow always worked on stock.

Mine doesn’t work on anything, stock or otherwise

Same here. Voice searched worked, now it doesn’t.

Even when you have the keyboard box up?.. thats when mine worx (instead of typing use your voice)

Yup. Voice no longer enters anything. But I rarely use Alexa.

I dont do Alexa either but i use voice search for everything else… Tivimate, Cinema, Bee, etc… but surprised it doesnt even work for u in the on screen keyboard

Nope and won’t start any non Amazon apps like Cinema.
