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 Appstore developer, we are providing you with early access to the builds to identify any potential compatibility issues prior to customer release. Now is the time to test and update your app to ensure it is available to millions of Amazon customers on our next generation of Amazon devices, enabling you the best opportunity to reach new customers and monetize.
Test Your Apps
Simply drag and drop your Android APK into the App Testing Service and get compatibility results for Fire OS 5 and Android Lollipop in 90 seconds. Lollipop brings many fundamental changes to Android Open Source Project (AOSP) that impact app compatibility, most notably the introduction of Android Run Time (ART). We have proactively tested many apps in our catalog and compiled a Knowledge Base of articles which highlight common Lollipop issues we have seen and recommended best practices to address those.
