Can the All-New Fire 7 Kids Edition Use Google Play?

Google Play LogoGoogle Play is one of the primary sources of games, apps and other content for Android tablets, and perhaps the biggest source. Parents may therefore wish to know whether this is available on a particular tablet.

The All-New Fire 7 Kids Edition does not, out of the box, support Google Play, because it is an Amazon tablet, even though it is an Android tablet. Instead, it comes with the Amazon Appstore as a source of content of different types, which can then be added to a child’s account by using the parental controls, as well as Amazon FreeTime Unlimited. There is still a lot of content available for the tablet, as the Amazon store is probably the second largest app store around. Whilst it is possible to add Google Play, this will require more tinkering with the tablet than most will wish to do.
