Amazon just announced its all new Fore HDX and it is powered by the newest version of the Fire OS which is the all new Fire OS 4 “Sangria”. The new OS is equipped with tons of new updated features along with the most user friendly Android interface which starts with the Android KitKat and improves further deeply by integration with hardware, platform, software, content, and also the Amazon cloud. The best part about this integration is that any app which runs on Android will also run on the Fire OS without any worries. Some of the outstanding features of the new Fire OS have been discussed below in detail.


The profiles give users a very personalized experience because each and every member has his/her own separate profile which includes individual email, Facebook and Twitter accounts. You can also have separate setting including display brightness, page in the book, spot in a movie, and game levels, and you don’t even have to worry about extra storage.

Family Library

This is an important addition since you longer have to keep track of whose account has the Prime membership or who bought that book you want to read. This library is basically going to link your Amazon account to your partner’s which is going to give you easy access and allow you to share apps, games, audiobooks, books, and Prime Instant Video content within your household without changing accounts. Family members can also share their content with the help of using a single Fire tablet with different profiles.


This option has been available on a tablet for the first time and it is going to combine Amazon’s deep catalog of physical and digital content with image, text and audio recognition technologies to quickly identify web and email addresses, phone numbers, QR and bar codes, plus over 100 million items, including movies, TV episodes, songs, and products.

ASAP—Advanced Streaming and Prediction

How about not having to wait for a video to stream as you press ‘play’? Im sure that sounds like a dream come true and you don’t have to dream about it any longer. This new feature predicts which movies and TV episodes you’ll want to watch and prepares them for playback before you even tap play.

The Mayday Button—Revolutionary On-Device Tech Support

If you find yourself in trouble on your Fire HDX, all you have to do is hit the Mayday button and an Amazon expert will appear via live video to co-pilot you through any feature on the device. These experts have the ability to draw on your screens and you will be able to talk to them about anything task that you are confused about.

View, Edit, and Create Office Documents, for Free

As you would already know, the Fire HDX equips the WPS Office which is the most popular Android Office app with over 245 million customers and 250,000 five-star reviews. This means that you can create, edit, and view Office documents on Microsoft Word, Excel, and PowerPoint.
