Kindle Fire tablet is an awesome device that Amazon has developed but even though the tablet runs on Android operating system, we can’t install all the Android apps on the device. We can install only some of the apps and the biggest app omission from the tablet would be YouTube. Whenever we want to see a new music video or watch a trailer of a new movie, we go to YouTube to watch it but Kindle Fire users can’t do it because they don’t have YouTube installed on their device. But today we are going to see how you can easily download and install YouTube on Kindle Fire HD and HDX tablets.
YouTube doesn’t come pre-installed in the Kindle devices and when you try searching for it in the Amazon Appstore, you won’t be able to find it because it’s not present there either. So you need to follow the below instructions to install YouTube on Kindle Fire, Kindle Fire HD and Kindle Fire HDX tablets. No root is required and no hack is required either, the process will be completed in a few minutes.
Steps to Install YouTube on Kindle Fire tablets?
Step 1: First of all, make sure that you have enabled the installation from unknown sources on your tablet. If not, then go to the top menu and click on “More” button, then go to “Device” menu and then turn on “Allow Installation of Application from Unknown Sources”.
Step 2: Now go to the App store and search for a file manager app for your tablet. The most popular one is ES File Explorer so download it and install it on your Kindle.
Step 3: Now you need to open the browser on your Kindle Fire device and search for the latest YouTube APK and download it on your device. Alternatively, you can download YouTube APK right from here.
Step 4: Now go to ES File Explorer and open the “Download” folder. You will see the YouTube APK file in that folder. If the file isn’t there, try downloading the APK again. Click on the YouTube APK icon and then click on the Install button.
Step 5: Wait for a few moments and the application will be installed. Check your home screen or the application drawer on your Kindle Fire device and you will find the YouTube app installed. Click on the icon and YouTube will open in your Kindle device.
By following the above steps, you will be able to install YouTube on Kindle Fire, Kindle Fire HD and Kindle Fire HDX tablets and watch your favorite videos.
But even though the app is successfully installed on your device, it won’t give you access to all the features. You will be able to watch as many videos as you like but you won’t be able to sign in or subscribe to any channel. That’s the limitation of YouTube app for Kindle.
So you can download and install YouTube on Kindle tablets and watch videos easily and if you are facing any difficulties or queries in doing so, just drop in a comment below and we will help you out.
