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.

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.

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...unt-manager-5-1-1743759-android-apk-download/

2. Google Services Framework 5.1-1743759
http://www.apkmirror.com/apk/google...s-framework-5-1-1743759-android-apk-download/

3. Google Play Services 11.5.09 (230-164803921)
https://www.apkmirror.com/apk/googl...s-11-5-09-230-164803921-android-apk-download/

4. Google Play Store 8.3.41.U-all [0] [FP] 170066753
https://www.apkmirror.com/apk/googl...41-u-all-0-fp-170066753-android-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

    I take no credit for this, I'm just simply creating a quick and simple post (mainly for ease and future reference for myself) to get the Google Play Store installed on the latest Fire OS 5.3.1.1 with no root or ADB required.

    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...unt-manager-5-1-1743759-android-apk-download/

    Google Services Framework 5.1-1743759
    http://www.apkmirror.com/apk/google...s-framework-5-1-1743759-android-apk-download/

    Google Play Services 9.8.77 (230-135396225)
    http://www.apkmirror.com/apk/google...es-9-8-77-230-135396225-android-apk-download/

    Google Play Store 7.0.17.H-all [0]
    http://www.apkmirror.com/apk/google-inc/google-play-store/google-play-store-7-0-17-h-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!

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

    Thank you. Google Play Services on my Kindle Fire crashed and wouldn't allow me to access any Google Apps including Chrome, Gmail etc.. The message indicated that the apps wouldn't work unless an updated version of Google Play Services was installed and it seemed like the update wouldn't go through. I reset my Kindle to factory settings and followed your instructions and it seems great so far...not asking for a Google Play Services update. Thank you again Gilly10.

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

    Hi, so you can update FireOS. But what about the google framework? Does it get updated automatically? Or if a new versione will be released, do you need to unistall the 4 apk first, and than install a newer version of the 4 apk?

    Seems this method is no longer functioning. Applications are not searchable - only the webview application comes up on search results. When I search for my previously downloaded applications, they come up, but state that the administrator has not given me permission to install this item.

    Furthermore it is the Google Play store for Work?

    Any thoughts? This is happening on 3x Kindle Fire HD 8 devices, all of which worked previously. Running 5.3.1.1.

    I have Kindle fire 8.9. I've downloaded the apps but every time I try installing the first one, "Account manage" I get a "parse error." Do I need different files for my device or am I just doing something wrong?

    parsing errors occur for a few different reasons
    possibly one of these, but not limited to

    app is not compatible with the os version
    not much you can do about that other than try an older version of the app

    there is a problem with the package installer
    try wiping installer app data

    some kind of caching error, or another app causing install failure
    try a factory reset and/or flash firmware with adb sideload in recovery

      I've had success on two 6th gens running 5.3.2 and would like to offer some tips to all who are having issues:

      Firstly, you should install items in the following order for best success:
      1. Google Services Framework
      a. Use the latest version for API 22 (original post link is correct)

      2. Google Play Services (latest version works fine)
      a. Be sure you are installing the correct download. 6th gen Fire HD 8's run on a v8 arm processor and the 240 builds are the correct for this architecture. The HD 10's (5th gen) and all 5th gens are built on a v7 arm and should use 230 builds.

      3. Google Account Manager
      a. Use the latest version for API 22 (original post link is correct)

      4. Google Play Store
      a. Use the latest version for API 22 (min 14 is typical and OK)

      If you have attempted to reinstall per the above and that didn't work, you may have to resort to factory reset the device.

      TL,DR:

      Versions I installed:
      #1. 5.1-1743759
      #2. 10.0.84_(240-137749526)-1008424
      #3. 5.1-1743759
      #4. 7.1.25.I-all_0_PR_137772785-80712500

      Cheers & Good Luck!

      It works but I don't see the play store app nor any apps I install using the play store. The only way for me to open play store or apps installed with play store is to search using the search bar. Is there any way to get the apps along with play store to show on the main screen?
      I learned more about this problem with the fire launcher. I think it may have to do with the fact that they changed its name? I went to settings, apps and games, All, Home Pages. That's the fire launcher. I cleared its cache and data and force stopped. I'm not sure if all of those were necessary. Now apps can be installed from either the play store or the Amazon app store, and they will show on the fire launcher home screen.

      Does anyone know why I might not be able to install the API? It opens and I see the screen that shows what the application will have access to. However, when I tap "Install" nothing happens. I can only click "Cancel". I have made sure that "Apps from Unknown Sources" is turned on. Also my Fire has over 10Gb of available is update to the latest version.

      Also, I tried the previous posters suggestion and used Total Commander. I still have the same problem.
      You need to reboot after changing the unknown sources setting.
