Would like to see support for Amazon Fire Tablets.  I have to use my android phone to stream when I could be using larger tablet.  Larger screen makes using Amazon much easier and it interfaces better with Alexa.

Just searched Wiim on play store and found several links. Working for me. You can also look at AudioPro, Legacy WiiM, and AudioCast S. They all work but WiiM Home is latest and best. Screenshot attached.

Hmm, I have loaded the Google Play store when I search for the Wiim Home app it doesn't even show up.

2021 Fire HD 10 Plus. Side loaded Google Play store and have several Wiim and similar apps working fine. Same is true on my 2019 Fire HD 10. Still no Pandora though!

I found a workaround that enables use of the WiiM Home app on the Fire HD 8.  You need to sideload the Google Play Store on to your Amazon tablet and then download the Wiim app from there. So far, it is working great on my Fire tablet.  Google "sideload fire hd 8" and you fill find many how-to articles; I used the first one listed.

The fire hd10 tablet cannot see any of the wiim devices and cannot control playback at all from amazon music. It can only playback locqlly on the tablet. Please add wiim home app for Amazon tablets.

Yeah, I'd like that too as it might enable me to run the app under the Windows 11 subsystem for android

Hi Ronald,


After you setup your Alexa account with WiiM Mini on WiiM Home App, you can use the native Amazon Music or Alexa App on Fire Tablets to control and stream music to Mini. Please let us know if it works for you.


Meanwhile, we'll provide WiiM Home App running on Fire Tablets in Q3, 22. Please stay tuned!


Best,

WiiM Support
