But in actual, it’s a forked variant of Android custom made by Amazon for streaming devices or Fire Tablets. Some consumers, such as Fire OS, work like Android, and Amazon’s variants have replaced the main code of Google’s applications involving the whole list of Play apps.

So as there is no official support from Google for the operating system. However, Google’s apps can’t be found in the Amazon App Store.
