Installing Telegram on your FireStick/Fire TV device will give you more goodies than you may think — especially if you’re into movies. While the messenger app has been solid as a communication tool, it’s a leg up in movie-related file-sharing.

In this post, we’re showing you how to install Telegram on Firestick/Fire TV despite the app not being immediately available on Amazon. 

Telegram is usually installed by downloading its APK file using Downloader or ES File Explorer on the Firestick device. Install either of these sideloading apps from the app store and enable Firestick to install unknown apps.

Users cannot download the Telegram app directly from the FireStick device as the app is not available on Amazon App Store. For this reason, a sideloading app is needed to download it.

With a little tweak on your device and the help of a sideloading app, you should be on your way. We are here to show you how, so read on!
