Roon Remote not current version in Amazon Appstore

Attempting to update a Fire 8 tablet to build 880, but build 831 is the only version available via the Amazon Appstore. Is this just a timing issue, waiting for the Appstore to update to the new version?

Same problem here.

I have the same problem as well.

Got around the problem by installing Google Play on the tablet, deleting the AmazonApp Store version of Roon and installing it from Google Play - works fine.

I installed Google Play from these instructions (just used the apks for the latest version as they didn’t specify HD 10 gen 11

We submitted the build, but Amazon is always slow to get it published and there’s no way for us to speed up the process – give it another 24-48hrs.


Thanks a lot for the hint @Rob_Simons
This works perfectly!
I don’t need to wait and also the Qobuz app from Google playstore is a lot better than the outdated one from Amazon :+1:

Its the start of the weekend ain’t gonna wait for Amazon :rage:

Thanks @Axel_Lesch and @Rob_Simons for the link to install the Play Store.

Head-up to @David_Speed.
