Install Play Store on Fire tablet: so it goes step by step

The app selection is manageable for Amazon’s Fire tablets. The solution: Install Google’s Play Store. And it’s very easy to do, as this new step-by-step guide shows.

Why should you install the Google Play Store on an Amazon Fire tablet ? Quite simply: In contrast to Android tablets, Amazon tablets work with the Fire OS operating system, which is trimmed for shopping and entertainment. And that only has access to Amazon’s App store – which is not exactly equipped with an immense number of programs and games.

For example, users search in vain for apps such as Word, Excel or WhatsApp . The Play Store online marketplace, which is available on almost all Android smartphones and tablets, offers the right app for almost every need – including tens of thousands of games, useful tools and productive applications.

Fire tablet with Play Store: Caution, loss of warranty!

A bit of caution is advised, however, because according to Amazon, the warranty expires when the Google Play Store is installed. In response to a request from Technoeager the online mail order company said: “As improper use has occurred due to the installation of the Google Play Store on the devices, the guarantee no longer applies warrant that the device will be free from defects in material and workmanship under normal consumer use for a period of one year from the date of original purchase .

“The explanation is somewhat incomprehensible in relation to the retrofitting of the Google Play Store, but if you still have a warranty claim on your Fire tablet (twelve months from a new purchase), you should be aware of the loss of warranty when installing the Google Play Store .
