How to Register Kindle Fire Tablet on Google Play Store

The Google Play Store is the largest app store for Android devices, offering over 3 million apps. However, Amazon’s Kindle Fire tablets use Amazon’s own Fire OS operating system, which does not come with the Google Play Store pre-installed.

Fortunately, it is possible to install the Google Play Store on Kindle Fire tablets, allowing you to access all your favorite Google apps as well as millions of other Android apps. Here is a step-by-step guide on how to register your Kindle Fire tablet on the Google Play Store:


Before installing the Google Play Store, make sure:

  • Your Kindle Fire tablet is compatible – this guide works for Fire tablets running Fire OS 5 or higher
  • You have enabled “Apps from Unknown Sources” in your tablet’s settings
  • Your tablet is sufficiently charged or plugged into a charger

Install Required Components

You will need to sideload the following APK files in this order:

  • Google Account Manager – Handles Google account authentication
  • Google Services Framework – Allows apps to access Google services
  • Google Play Services – Provides essential Google services for apps
  • Google Play Store – The app store and portal for Google Play

Follow these steps:

  • Download the latest APK files from APKMirror or another reputable source
  • Use the Silk browser or a file manager app to install the APK files in the correct order
  • When prompted, allow installation from “Unknown sources”

Set Up the Play Store

After installing the components, the Google Play Store app should appear on your Kindle Fire’s home screen or app drawer.

  • Launch the Play Store and sign into your Google account
  • The app will configure itself and install any required updates
  • The setup process may take a few minutes to complete

Once done, you should have full access to the Play Store!

Install Apps from the Play Store

You can now search for and install apps just like any other Android device. Here are some things to note:

  • Not all apps are guaranteed to work properly due to compatibility issues
  • Apps that require Google services should now work correctly
  • Keep an eye out for app updates through the Play Store
  • Some apps may not show up if they are incompatible with Fire tablets

In case of issues with certain apps, you may have to sideload their APKs separately.


If you encounter problems setting up or using the Play Store, here are some things to try:

  • Reboot your device
  • Clear data for Play Store and Play Services apps
  • Redownload components and reinstall if necessary
  • Perform factory reset and try again as a last resort

Additionally, newer Fire OS updates may break Play Store functionality. You would have to reinstall the components after major Fire OS updates.

So there you have it! With these steps, you can install the Google Play Store on compatible Kindle Fire tablets and access apps just like any Android device. Let us know in the comments if you have any questions.
