How to install Google Play Store on Amazon Fire Phone

Reading Time: < 1 minute

One drawback of Fire Phone does not come with Google Play Store pre-installed. It comes with Amazon App Store instead, which has a much smaller collection. For instance, I could not find BoA app, wechat and all the Google apps there. Fortunately there is way to get around it, with the Google Play Store the Fire Phone becomes a middle range Android phone.

Make sure you do them in the right order: Account Manager, Services
Framework, Play Services, finally Play Store.
Account Manager: https://app.box.com/s/qeetg0vfe01ri83l2e1nosl8rzmax41q

Services Framework: https://app.box.com/s/x6gkj91qkwxse2abqhz0at4uq6wtpe91

Play Services: https://app.box.com/s/cas5ctu356rnm088c6l4ngo8b5r0hd1z

Play Store: https://app.box.com/s/pjtgrmfl1t3by9tuhvb6vm5i04m7falk

The first one you try to install (Account Manager) you’ll get a warning that it’s an unknown source and offer to take you to settings. Go to settings and enable App Installation (allows installations from other sources (read: Google Play))
