        Answer

        Yes you can down load Google Play Store to any Fire Tablet. Just go to YouTube and there are tons of videos showing how to do it. It's not hard, just pay attention to how they do it. It won't hurt the tablet and it really opens up the usefulness of the Fire. Check H2TechVideos' channel on YouTube. It was the one I used and went very easily. Or just search how to download Google to Fire Tablet.

              Answer

              The easiest way to tell them apart is the 2015 HD 8 has a glossy back. The new HD 8, 2016, has a dull matte finish on the back. If you purchased it in the last 2 weeks, it should be the 2016 version. Also if you paid $89.99, then it was the new version

            • Question
              What is difference between this one and the Amazon 6" 16GB Fire HD -- I am considering each one. This seems newer. But 6" one does not have the SD card input. So is this one better because you can add the SD card? Can you play games on this?   (3 Answers)

                Answer

                The difference is this one has the SD card for expanded memory. It also was a bigger screen. You can play games on it just as you would on the 6" just with a bigger picture. I own both and prefer this one. I haven't used my 6" at all since I bought this one.
