Google Play Store on Amazon Firestick 2021
One of the more frustrating aspects of the Amazon Firestick is the limited nature of the amount off apps inside of the store. The main reason for this is Amazon, wants to control what applications are inside of their store. Some people would argue this is censorship, Amazon is corner the market on a device that will be one of the most bought in the next 10 years. This is very similar to how Apple approaches their app store, controlling what can and can’t be processed on it. I have had lots of questions as to if you can put the full Google play store onto Firestick or Fire Tablet. The answer is yes….sort of. Although you can’t get the official play store on Fire devices, there are third party app stores that do essentially the exact same thing. So in this tutorial I am going to show you how to install third party app stores, one being a direct Google play store replica, directly on your Amazon Firestick, Fire Tablet or Fire cube.
