Amazon's Kindle Fire tablets (the Kindle Fire, Fire HD, and Fire HDX) are compatible with Kindle Books (available to U.S. libraries only), but they offer more sophisticated web browsing capabilities than Kindle eReaders and can install OverDrive's app (available worldwide). Kindle Fire tablets are based on the Android operating system, so many of our Android help articles are also useful for Kindle Fire tablets.

We have a separate device profile for Kindle eReaders (like the original Kindle or the Kindle Paperwhite).

You can read more about Kindle Fire tablets on Amazon's website.


  • OverDrive for Android (for EPUB eBooks, MP3 audiobooks, and streaming video)
    • The app is available for 2nd generation Kindle Fires and newer.

Compatible formats




  • Streaming videos (some videos, like those from Starz, cannot be played on Kindle Fire or Fire HD tablets)
