Amazon Fire tablets are built with Fire OS, which is pretty much the same as Android. In addition to the stock apps, you can install the apps from the Amazon store. You can even install Google Play Store without rooting Amazon Fire or download any Android apps on your Amazon Fire Tab. Now, the question is, how do you delete or uninstall apps from your Amazon Fire Tab?

Well, it’s pretty much easy to uninstall apps from Amazon Fire Tab. Whether the apps are from Amazon or Android store, you can remove those apps from Fire Tab.

Uninstall Amazon Fire Apps from Home Screen

Let’s begin with the apps that you downloaded from the Amazon store. You can uninstall these apps with just two steps. Please be aware that Amazon won’t allow you to uninstall the stock apps that come with the Fire Tab.

Uninstall Fire Apps with Google Play Store.

You can follow the above solution to uninstall the Android Apps. Alternatively, you can follow the instructions below, if you have installed any Android apps on Fire tab;

Amazon Fire Tablet Uninstall Android App

Since you have installed these apps through Google Play Store, you must have Google Play Store on your Fire Tab.

  1. Open your Amazon Fire Tablet.
  2. Open Google Play Store on your Fire Tab.
  3. Search and find the app you want to uninstall.
  4. Tap on the App from the search result.
  5. Tap on Uninstall button on the App Window.
  6. Now, tap OK to confirm.

Google Play Store will uninstall the apps through the Play Store from the Fire tab. For most of your apps on the Fire Tab, the first step will work well. In case you find any issue, you can consider this as an alternative step to uninstall apps from your Amazon Fire Tab.


  1. My Fire 8 does not display the Google apps that (the tablet said) were installed and Google Play store app cycles through signing in. So I don’t have a way to delete apps that aren’t working. The Fire won’t show a list of its file when I connect it to my PC – just says “Fire” and won’t do anything else. It won’t back-up files – only gives me an option to delete. I really, really hate this and wish I’d gotten a laptop instead or a tablet that will actually do things.
