This's just a quick guide on how to get the Google Play Store installed on the latest Fire OS 5 for Amazon Fire tablets with no Root, PC or ADB required.

This should work on any Amazon Fire tablet released from 2014 onwards (4th Generation and above) that's running Fire OS 5.X.

Quote:

NOTE (1): To install the required APKs, you may need a file manager from the Amazon Appstore, I used TOTAL COMMANDER - https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B00H4IHJ8M/

With later versions of Fire OS or SILK, you can just tap the download notifications as and when you download the APKs or use SILKs download manager, removing the need for the above file manager.

Quote:

NOTE (2): You'll also need to enable 'Apps from Unknown Sources' found under Settings > Security of the Fire OS.

Now simply download the 4 APK files below using the stock web browser, SILK and install them in that same order, then POWER OFF and RESTART your tablet and afterwards open up the Google Play Store and log in with your Google account:

1. Google Account Manager 5.1-1743759
http://www.apkmirror.com/apk/google-...-apk-download/

2. Google Services Framework 5.1-1743759
http://www.apkmirror.com/apk/google-...-apk-download/

3. Google Play Services 11.5.09 (230-164803921)
https://www.apkmirror.com/apk/google...-apk-download/

Quote:

NOTE (3): If you have a Fire HD 8 2017 (7th Generation) use this APK below instead of the one above.

3. Google Play Services 11.5.09 (240-164803921)
https://www.apkmirror.com/apk/google...-apk-download/

4. Google Play Store 8.3.41.U-all [0] [FP] 170066753
https://www.apkmirror.com/apk/google...-apk-download/

In future, the Google Play Store and Google Play Services apps will auto update themselves in the background.

download the apps, when complete you can tap on the notification, you will have an option to install
be sure to allow unknown sources in settings before downloading apps

Edit: stay away from ES File Manager, it was sold, and new owners have packed it full of junkware
there are several other great file managers

among others

All you have to do is download and install these 4 APKs below and login with your Google account, that's it:

Google Account Manager 5.1-1743759
http://www.apkmirror.com/apk/google-...-apk-download/

Google Services Framework 5.1-1743759
http://www.apkmirror.com/apk/google-...-apk-download/

Google Play Services 9.8.77 (230-135396225)
http://www.apkmirror.com/apk/google-...-apk-download/

Google Play Store 7.0.17.H-all [0]
http://www.apkmirror.com/apk/google-...all-0-release/

NOTE: This was all done on a Amazon Fire 8, 6th Gen. device.

Are those the prerequisites for Google play store? i have android system in my car multimedia. it does not have the google play store in it, and when i tried to install it (only google play store) it won't lunch and crash..
so i understand it needs all the 3 apk's in addition..
the version of android i have in my car is 4.4.2 - will the above apk version fit? or do i need different version?

Off topic question (does not pertain to device) - you'll need to ask your question elsewhere. And yes, different versions are needed depending on device type, capabilities and Android build.

I had to install latest Play Store version to get it all running on our Kindle Fire (think it's 5th gen). Version recommended above just went back to home screen.

Is there any way to get multiple Google accounts working using this method? I have a couple accounts that I need to have on devices for various reasons.

Excellent work!

Excellent work!

Gmail app allows adding multiple accounts, then they will be accessable by other apps

FireOS yes you can update, Google framework will remain
root after updating, unlikely, at least right away
