Does the Kindle Fire use Google Play?
I got a family member a Google Play gift card because I thought that the Kindle Fire was an android device so it must use the Google Play store but now I'm not sure. Does it only use the amazon app store? Or is using Google Play common and possible with current models (she just got hers, I believe it's the newest something like the Kindle Fire HD)?
Added (1). And can it use google play without being rooted? She won't want to do any special downloading or changing around folders.
It uses google play
You can't load apps directly from Google Play on the Kindle Fire. However, you can sideload many Google Play apps on the Kindle, here you can find a good discussion on this:
Quite many apps can work on the Kindle Fire with this way. Hope that helps.
U cant I thought the same thing but I didn't buy it just to make sure u have to do Amazon shop u just click shop on your kindle
