Default Google play shows "kindle fire" under devices

Up until recently the play store could not see my fire. Now it recognizes it and allows me to click on download. However when I do nothing happens. This is an unrooted kindle. Play shows the apps as "installed" but again nothing ever gets to the kindle. Am I doing something wrong? Or is play recognizing fires now and working with them only if they're rooted? I didn't know if Google found some way around amazon's block.

Your not doing anything wrong, my kindle had the same thing. I wasn't rooted and I was able to get on the play store but if I downloaded an app then it would crash. If you root and flash gapps on your kindle then you can send apps to download on your fire.

If you have any apps on your fire that you sideloaded such as play books or play music that use a google account, then you will likely show up on google play
