  4. Click and download the Google Account Manager 5.1-1743759. Don’t download the latest versions because they are not going to support in your Amazon tablet.
  5. After that download “Google Service Framework” APK file from the same website by searching for it in the search bar.
  6. Now download the latest version of Google Play Services APK file by the same site. Please note that if you are using Fire 7 or older tablet then download the Google Play Services Apk which is labeled with 230 in the title. If you are own Fire HD 8 or latest version, then download the APK labeled with 240 in the title.
  7. Finally, you have to download the Google Play Store APK from the same website. You can download the latest version of it.
