If you have an active Amazon Prime membership, Prime Music provides unlimited, ad-free access to Prime Playlists and more than a million songs and albums at no additional cost.
In addition to bug fixes, we've added the following feature enhancements to the Email app:
As part of this update, we've moved to Gmail’s OAuth 2.0 authentication system, which provides Gmail customers with enhanced security measures. If you use Gmail on your Kindle Fire, you'll need to setup your Gmail account again to continue to receive e-mails.
To do this, tap the Menu button from your inbox, and then tap Settings. Select your Gmail account, and then tap Delete > Delete Account. After you've removed your account from your Kindle Fire, you can set it up again through the app by going to Settings > Add Account. To learn more about setting up e-mail accounts on Kindle Fire, go to Set Up Email, Calendar & Contacts.
If you see duplicate e-mails on your Kindle Fire while using a POP3 account, you'll need to delete these duplicate e-mails from your inbox. You will not continue to see duplicated e-emails within your inbox.
