Amazon has released a new developer preview of their mobile OS, the latest version is Amazon Fire OS 5 and it is based on Android Lollipop.
The Amazon Fire OS 5 preview is available for developers on Amazon’s Fire TV, Fire Tablets and also their Fire TV stick.
Starting today, developers have the opportunity to participate in a Developer Preview of Fire OS 5, the next generation Android-based operating system that powers Fire tablets, Amazon Fire TV and Fire TV Stick. And because Fire OS 5 is based on Android Lollipop, we can make this update while preserving even more compatibility with existing Android apps than ever before. This means that even more of your apps should work on Fire devices with no additional engineering effort. There are several ways you can participate in the Fire OS 5 Developer Preview.
To ensure your app is available to millions of customers on the next generation of Amazon devices, you can now participate in the Fire OS 5 Developer Preview. As an Amazon Developer, we’re offering you early access to Fire OS 5. You can now see your app running on a Fire HD 6 or Fire HD 7 tablet, and identify any app compatibility issues well in advance of our new Fire OS launch later this year.
You can find out more details about the Amazon Fire OS 5 preview over at Amazon’s developer website at the link below.
