FRITZ!Box 7340 Service

Setting up FRITZ!App Media

With FRITZ!App Media you can play music, video and image files from the FRITZ!Box Media Server on your Android device (for example a smartphone, tablet).

If you have a television, stereo system or wireless speakers with networking capabilities in the FRITZ!Box home network, you can also use FRITZ!App Media as a remote control and play media files directly on the other device. For example, with FRITZ!App Media you can play music files from the FRITZ!Box Media Server directly through a wireless speaker.

Requirements / Restrictions

  • Android 1.6 or later is installed on the smartphone or tablet.

    Note:FRITZ!App Media is not available for Apple iOS. If you are using iOS, use a different app that can play files from UPnP AV servers (for example GoodPlayer, media:connect or PlugPlayer) instead.
