Google Play Instructions
Bought to you by Twattle
Enable apps from unknown sources
To do so, go to Settings > 'Security & Privacy' > 'Apps from unknown sources' > 'Silk Browser' > and then click radio button next to 'Allow from this source' to enable unknown apps to be installed. This will allow you to install APKS downloaded from the internet (Silk Browser). As the Google PlayStore isn’t available in the Amazon App Store, we need to download it from the internet.
Download the APK file to install the Google PlayStore
We need to install some packages in order to run the Google PlayStore properly on the fire tablet.
You can download the apk files from the trustworthy sources below.
Download APK files onto your tablet using the following links:
If you have the 2017 Fire HD 8 download this Google PlayStore version otherwise Google PlayStore
Note: download files in order. As each file downloads two pop ups will appear at the bottom of the screen. The first pop up is a warning message - select 'ok' and then second pop is a message for download completed - select 'open' and once page loads, select 'install'.
Turn your tablet into a home controller
After installing the google play store packages, an app icon will appear on the tablet home screen under 'Play Store' - Open it. When its first opened, it may be slow until it loads everything needed. You will then be prompted to log into a google account to allow you to use the google store. If you do not have a google account you will need to create one as the adult.
Note: If the Play Store app doesn't open, the incorrect APK file listed in step 2 bullet point 3 is incorrect. You will need to repeat the download in step 2 bullet 3 but use the other link listed.
