New Fire Devices
NEW: Amazon introduced an all-new Amazon Fire TV, Fire TV Stick with Voice Remote, and Fire tablets - including a new 7” tablet that sets an entirely new standard for a tablet under $50. The new Fire family devices ship with Fire OS 5 “Bellini”, which starts with Android Lollipop, and improves upon it by deeply integrating Amazon’s hardware, platform, software, content, and cloud. If an app runs on Android, it can run on Fire OS 5 with little to no work.
You're invited to participate in our first ever Developer Preview of Fire OS 5, a confidential beta release of our next generation Android Lollipop–based operating system. As an Amazon developer, we are providing you with early access to the builds to identify any potential compatibility issues. Now is the time to test your app to ensure it is available to millions of Amazon customers on our newest Amazon Fire devices, enabling the best opportunity for you to reach new customers and monetize.
