How to install Google Play on Kindle Fire (2019 Updated)

Posted by on .

As a custom Android tablet, Kindle Fire doesn't have Google Play but Amazon Store instead. Although we can get thousands of e-books in the Amazon Store, the lack of apps makes this built-in store very awkward. So can we install Google Play on the Kindle Fire? Generally speaking, this is impossible as Amazon has made some restriction on Kindle Fire.

So in this article I'll tell you how to install Google Play on a kindle Fire with the right steps. It's easy and simple. You don't have to master any professional skills or tools, just do as the tutorial says. Now, let's get started!

Notice (Updated 2019): If you want to install Google Play on Kindle Fire just because you want to read Google Play books on Kindle Fire, it's not suggested that you install an app outside of Amazon Store by taking risks. What you need to do is to simply:

Transfer Google Play EPUB books to Kindle Fire, or,

Transfer Google Play PDF books to Kindle Fire.

Thanks for this guide. I used these steps on Unlocked $199 Fire Phone which Amazon purged starting yesterday to clear their unsold inventory.
