Transferring photos from Google to Fire Stick is a two-phase process. If you wish to add pictures from the Google Photos App to Amazon, you’ll need to download them first. Here’s how to do that.

  1. Visit Google Takeout on the computer you want to download your images to.
  2. Sign in to the account where you’ve stored your photos.
  3. You’ll see a list of data from all the Google products you use, such as YouTube, Chrome, Maps, and more. Click Deselect all to avoid downloading unwanted pictures from these apps.
  4. Scroll down to the list of collections you wish to download.
  5. Select all the photo albums by clicking the Include button. Then, click Deselect for the files you don’t want.
  6. After you’re done, tap Next Step at the bottom of the page.
  7. Choose how you want to receive your photos. You can have it delivered as a download link to your email or sent to another storage provider like Dropbox.
  8. Then, you can download them as they are and tap Create Export. The download takes a while, depending on how many photos you’ve stored in your Google Photos account.
  9. Once you’ve downloaded the folder, you’ll have a ZIP format. Extract the ZIP folder first before uploading it to your Fire TV Amazon account.
