Google Play Store is one of the worlds leading app stores close to the Apple App Store.

The simple answer is yes, and it won’t take you more than 10 minutes.


I understand that you want to get the most out of your Kindle Fire Book, so I will be helping you with that.


In this article, I will be giving you a step by step guide on how to download Google Play Store on your Kindle Fire Book.




Take these precautions before downloading Google Play

There are a few things you need to do before you start installing anything.


The first thing I would say is to try and carry out my instructions while reading them. This way you won’t forget anything and run into problems.


The second thing I would ask you to do is to update your Kindle software.


The reason I ask you to do this is that some of these files won’t work on a device running old software.


I’ll be showing you showing to do this so go and do it now.


How to update Kindle Fire software:

I want you to head over to Settings > About or System Update > If there is an update available then go ahead and install it. It’s a very simple process, just follow the on-screen prompts.


Now I want you to go ahead and turn on Download Manager if not already on.


How to turn on Download Manager on Kindle Fire:

  1. Open Settings
  2. Tap on Apps
  3. Click on the three dots in the top right corner
  4. Tap on Show System Apps
  5. Search for Download manager
  6. Tap on Enable


Now you are ready to go. If you weren’t able to do any of the above, then go ahead and start anyway. It will still work.

These are just for extra precautions only.
