    I recently picked up an Amazon Fire Tablet 7" as a casual web browsing device. For $39, its quite usable after rooting and eliminating all the Amazon sales content.

    My question is this...does anyone know why Apple Music is not available on this device? The Google PLay store simply says its "incompatible".
    Would I need to install a custom ROM and replace the Fire OS with a generic version of Android to do so?

    Thanks in advance for the thoughts.

    Because Jeff Bezos won't allow it, and Amazon tablets run a customized version of some ancient form of Android.

    Actually, go to https://support.apple.com/en-us/HT205381 and click on a country. (Except China) This is the page so if you have Apple Music in your country but not the Play store. It will download an .apk file that will be in english. You can install it and have the official version of Apple Music.

    I went to the page www.apple.com/lae/apple-music/android-download

    clicked on download now.

    I was immediately asked do you want to keep applemusic.apk anyway?

    when I clicked OK, I was transferred to a thankyou page. Nothing else happened. Nothing appeared in the notification area when I swiped down from the status bar.

    I haven't tried downloading via google play yet. Can anybody tell me what I'm doing wrong
