How To Install Google Play On Amazon Fire Phone Without Rooting

Thursday, 20 October 2016
Posted by shehroz adeel
In this short tutorial, you will learn how to make your Fire phone look and behave like a standard Android phone.
As you probably know,  Fire OS is a slight modification of Android OS. With Fire phone, however, Amazon created its own look (the carousel and the center, right and left panel) that is much different from what you know from Android phones.
If you happen to dislike Fire OS and want to make your Fire phone look and act  more like an Android phone, you are just in the right place. All you have to do is follow the instructions below.
Before I begin, I want to thank Brett for  giving me most of the materials and resources for this tutorial.

Installing The Play Store On Fire Phone

The first thing you need to do is install the Play store and have it up & running properly.  Here’s what you need to do step by step:
1) Allow installation of apps not from the Amazon Appstore. To do this, go to Settings > Applications > Allow installation of applications not from the Amazon Appstore  and turn the option App Installation ON.

2) Download and copy the folder containing these four Google files to your Fire Phone. You can use the included USB Cable, or a cloud  storage app. What you will basically need to do is sideload these four Google apps to your Fire phone.

3) Install the apps: ES File Explorer and APK Installer. Both are available on the Amazon Appstore. You will need one of these apps to open and install the Google files on your Fire phone.
4) Navigate to the folder with Google files you downloaded in step two using one of the two apps above. If using cloud storage, you can do this from the app itself, and don’t even need to use ES File Explorer.
5) Install the files from the folder in THE FOLLOWING order (tap on the files, accept app permissions and tell them to install):
  1. Google Account Manager
  2. Google Play Services
  3. Google Services Framework
  4. Google Play Store

6) Congratulations, you now have the PLAY STORE and GOOGLE SERVICES installed and working on your Amazon Fire phone.
Now you can download and use the apps from the Play store, including those that require a Gmail account (such as Google CalendarGmailGoogle ChromeSnapchat and so on) as if it was any  other Android device.
7) You might need to update the Play store, so look out for updates to any of the files you just manually installed. To check of the Google Play store is up to date, open it, go to Settings  and click on Build version.

8) In order to avoid future problems, you should turn off auto update for the Amazon store, which you probably won’t be using anymore.
To do this, go to Settings >Applications > Manage the settings for individual Amazon Applications on your phone. OpenAppstore and disable Automatic Updates.

It’s also a good idea to uninstall all of the apps you installed when using the Amazon store, and re-install them  using the Play store.
