A lot of people are using Google Meet recently for video conferencing but if you only have an Amazon Fire Tablet on hand, you might feel left out. You can only download apps that are available at Amazon’s Appstore, which means, Google Meet is out of the question.

But, Amazon Fire Tablet is running on Fire OS, which is based on Android. So, if you come to think of it, you can actually use an Android app on your Fire Tablet including Google Hangouts and Google Meet. All you need to do is a bit of tweaking so you can install the Google Play Store in an Amazon tablet.

  1. It got installed. But when adding account no response. Checking info is continuously loading and not moving to next page

  2. Worked like a charm on the Amazon Fire Tablet. I went by date on the Google Play apk because there’s no version 20 on the tablet (version 7).

  3. Installed, but it will not let me type in a Meet code, so I cannot join meetings. Did I choose an incorrect version of an APK?

  4. “You will need to search the right version of these APK files…”
    And how one knows which version is “the right one”.
    ?!?

  5. I keep getting this message saying there was a problem parsing the package when I try to open the first all file. I download the version 7.1.2 of the Google Account Manager and I’m doing this on a Fire HD 10 7th generation tablet. Could someone please help?

  6. Excellent article. I made it work on Fire 7 tablet. Never thought Google apps can be run on Fire tablet.

    Instructions
    – Choose the versions latest and select Android 6.0 +, NoDPI, noarch for the first 3, for google play store i used Android 5.0 +

  7. I followed your instructions but it did not work. Did Fire OS change something? I Got the Play Store to install, but it will not launch.

    • Same issue here. This article is awesome—worked like a charm … until I tried to open the app. It just flashes and then shows me the main Kindle screen again.
