What is the Bell Symbol on My Amazon Fire TV Stick?

Did you recently turn on your Amazon Fire TV Stick and see a bell symbol at the top of the screen? Much like your phone or your computer, your Amazon Fire TV Stick is capable of generating notifications.

The bell symbol on the Fire Stick is an indication that you have an unread notification on the device. These notifications can be generated for a handful of reasons, such as when you buy or rent a movie from Amazon on the device.

Our guide below will show you where to go to view this notification, as well as how to dismiss a single notification, or all of the notifications on your Amazon Fire TV Stick
