Google Play Store with all of it's app can be downloaded but I found many tutorials on UTube & the web. It will require you to allow 3rd party downloads from and unknown services. It seems easy but I haven't done it. I have downloaded the Google search app which is available in the Amazon Appstore. From there I can access my photos, calendar etc.. So I haven't installed the workaround because I have what I need and more on my Fire tablet.
