[Tutorial] How To Install Google Play Store On Any Amazon Fire Tablet

Amazon Fire tablets run on Fire OS, which is an Android based operating system. Since Fire OS is based on Android, we can install the Google Play Store on it.

Apart from being leaders in their respective industries, both Amazon and Google offer a bunch of similar services such as cloud storage and digital content which includes e-books, movies, TV shows and music. Since Amazon wants the Fire users to use it's services, rather than it's counterpart's, Amazon doesn't ship it's Fire tablets with the Google applications (like the Play Store).

Since Fire tablets are budget devices, they are immensely popular. A major con of the Fire tablets is the Amazon Appstore. Unlike the Play Store which has 2.8 million applications on offer, the Amazon Appstore offers a mere 600,000 apps, about a quarter of what the Play Store offers.

As stated above, we can install the Play Store on the Amazon Fire tablets too. By installing the Google Play Store, we can have access to the same applications which an Android user can install.

The installation procedure is very easy. You don't need to modify your device in any way to install the Play Store. Even if you are new to these installing procedures, we can assure you that this installation procedure is not tough at all, in fact, you will be able to understand each and every step we have mentioned.

1. Search for ES File Explorer on the Amazon Appstore.
