Love them or hate them, app shortcut buttons at the bottom of Fire TV remotes are here to stay. Even the premium Alexa Voice Remote Pro announced this week has four of them along the bottom. While it’s safe to say that the first two app shortcut buttons will always be for Prime Video and Netflix, the other two buttons will likely change over time as different streaming services gain in popularity. These buttons also differ from country to country, depending on where the remote is purchased, so here is a list of which app buttons each country will have on its premium Fire TV remote.
The list below is the most probable app buttons for each country at this time. The list is based primarily on product and press photos that have appeared in each region. That said, there’s no guarantee these are the buttons that will be on the remotes for a particular country when the remote launches in a few months.
As of today, my app shortcut button remapper continues to work on all Fire TV remotes with app buttons, despite Amazon already trying once to thwart its use, although the initial setup process is a bit cumbersome now. I expect my remapper method will also work with the premium remote as well, so you should be able to remap the app shortcut buttons if you don’t use the ones on the remote in your particular country.
