by Olga

Do you use Google Apps and need them on your Kindle Fire? Well now you can have them!

If you've correctly followed the steps in the tutorial on how to install Google Play Store on your Kindle Fire, you can now download and use practically any Google app you want.

Below you can see my list of the ten most popular Google apps to install on your Kindle Fire, together with useful installation information and links.


Google Play App On Kindle Fire: Gmail

This is probably the most popular Google app that everyone wants to have on their Kindle Fire. I think there is no need to further introduce it here.

These are the two ways you can install Gmail on your Kindle Fire:

  • VIA THE PLAY STORE: Open the Play Store (it's now on the home screen in the app grid) and type "Gmail" in the search box. Make sure to follow the installation instructions and accept the permissions required by this app.

    You can also download Gmail straight from its web page on Google Play.

  • MANUALLY: Once you have installed Google Play services on your Kindle Fire, you don't have to worry that some Google app will not work properly. You don't have to install Google apps through the Play Store. You can install any Google app manually by simply downloading the APK file of the app, transferring it to your Kindle Fire and then installing it.

    Here are the files to download from the APKMirror (it's best to download and install the newest version currently available): Gmail & Inbox

The biggest advantage of installing Google apps manually on your Kindle Fire is that you can choose what version to install (you can download different versions from, for example, the APKMirror while in the Play Store you can only install the latest version).

The versions of apps your will find at APKMirror URLs given may not be the latest at the moment you download them. If they aren't, you will see the information that a never version is available and a link to it. Remember that in most cases it's best to always install the latest version. 

If the newer version of the app is available, you will see the information like the one above and the download link to the newest version below it.
