Fire OS is the operating system that runs Amazon Fire TV and tablet devices. Fire OS is a fork of Android, so if your app runs on Android, it will most likely run on Amazon Fire devices too. Fire OS 6 is based on Android 7.1 (Nougat) and API level 25, while Fire OS 5 is based on Android 5.1 (Lollipop) and API level 22. Over 75% of Android apps we tested just work, with zero additional development work required.
Simply drag and drop your Android APK into the App Testing Service and get compatibility results in 90 seconds or less. Android Nougat 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 recommend best practices to address common bugs.
