Amazon Fire tablets are one of the best-selling in the world for being cheap and ideal for children, as they are designed to meet basic needs.
And, despite being Android tablets, the Amazon Fire does not provide a “good Android experience”, since they do not have Google apps and use a personalization layer (Fire OS) based on old versions of Android.
In summary, the Amazon Fire as they come from the box is very limited tablets for the average user. Fortunately, it is possible to install the Google Play Store on any Amazon Fire tablet to unleash its full potential. We have a new method of installing GMS on Huawei devices that fix the Play Services error and allows you to use your new and bombastic Huawei without any hadith.
It really is very easy to do, although you have to install specific APKs for the Amazon Fire tablet model you have, which can be a bit tedious. Luckily, an XDA developer has created a tool that allows you to install Google Play on your Amazon Fire tablet, remove Amazon apps, change the default launcher, and many other things with just a few clicks. This is the Amazon Fire Toolbox and here we show you how to use it.
How to install Google Play on Amazon Fire tablets with an application
