Google Chrome for Kindle Fire HD – Not That Far!

I am sure there are thousands of Kindle Fire owners who would love to have Google Chrome on their Fire tablet. There is a good news for you all. The new Kindle Fire tablets have Android 4.x deep under their skins and that should support Chrome for Android.

I don’t think Amazon will add this, but there are hundreds of developers who are capable of getting this done for you.

This was not possible on the first version of Kindle Fire tablet because Google Chrome for Android supports only Android 4.0 and above. However the new Kindle Fire tablets released last week with Android 4 loaded, will make this possible.

That being said, there were people who ported Android 4.1 Jelly Bean to the first Kindle Fire and used Google Chrome on it.You can try that as well, if you are really keen and has the old Kindle Fire with you. If you are planning to buy a new Kindle Fire, I am sure there will be an apk file ready for download soon. Subscribe to this blog and I will post the download link as soon as it is available!

For now, enjoy this video of Kindle Fire Running Jelly Bean and Chrome!

  1. If you have to do that (install Chrome, Android 4.1, Nexus Like), just buy a Nexus 7.

  2. My kf is running Jelly but chrome just flashes and closes. Frustrating.

  3. So when you install Jelly Bean and Chrome, do you lose the ability to stream Amazon Instant Prime HD (or SD) content?

  4. I’ve orderded a 8.9 Fire HD, but I certainly hope there’s a way to get chrome on the HD, the silk browser is absolutely miserable. Slow, balky, contstantly shutting down and restoring old tabs I don’t want. Unless they’ve made huge improvements on silk, which I doubt. Somebody should be able to figure out how to get chrome to work.
