With all four apps installed, it’s time to restart your Fire tablet.Press the power button until the power menu appears, then tap restart.

After your Fire tablet restarts, you should be able to open the Google Play Store, log into your Google account, and start downloading apps. Again, not everything works, but there are definitely more options than you’ll get in the Amazon Appstore.
Tips and Troubleshooting
If you want a more Android experience, you can install a custom launcher that lets you hide all the Amazon apps you don’t need. I like Nova Launcher, but there are many others available.
Assuming you’ve finished installing the APK from an unknown source, it’s best to go back and turn the option off.inside set up > Security and Privacy. closure Apps from unknown sources options. It will prevent you from accidentally downloading malware.
If you’re having trouble installing apps from the Play Store, try clearing app data.go to set up > Apps and Notifications > Manage all applications. Browse the list and find the Play Store. Click to edit settings.The first step is to click forced stop Close the Play Store.Next, tap storageThen clear data (or clear storage, depending on the version of Fire OS you’re running). Once done, restart your device and try logging into the Play Store again.
If that doesn’t work, you may want to wager: factory reset and start over. However, be aware that a factory reset will delete all your data and files, not just the Google Play Store, so make sure you have a good backup before trying it.
Finally, for those who want to try installing LineageOS (an open source alternative to Android): I don’t recommend it. Fire devices don’t have an unlockable bootloader, and installing LineageOS isn’t for the faint of heart. Even if you succeed, it rarely works 100% of the time, and you can still screw up after installation. I bricked an old Fire HD 8 running LineageOS (I tried to update the bootloader in LineageOS, but it turned out to be a bug). As far as I know, there is no LineageOS version that fully supports Fire hardware. If you want to run LineageOS on a tablet, a Samsung tablet might be your best bet.
