Fire OS 3.1 Now Available


Amazon has made available Fire OS 3.1, a free software update for the new Kindle Fire HD and Kindle Fire HDX.

The over-the-air update will be delivered automatically in the coming weeks. But if you can;t wait, you can visit www.amazon.com/kindlesoftwareupdates to download and install the update starting today.

Fire OS 3.1 brings deep integration with Goodreads community. With Goodreads, you can capture and share favorite quotes with Goodreads friends from inside the book. You can see what friends are reading with the Goodreads updates feed and add books to your want-to-read shelf. You can also rate and review a book you've just finished and immediately share it with Goodreads friends. Last but not least, you can import all of the books you?ve purchased from Amazon - print and Kindle books - into your Goodreads account.

Another feature of the Fire OS 3.1 is the second screen, which turns your TV into the primary screen and frees up your Fire HDX to provide playback controls, a customized display for X-Ray, or simply a place to email, browse the web, and more while you watch a movie. Second Screen is available for PlayStation 3 and Samsung TVs, and will be available starting later this year for PlayStation 4.

Fire OS 3.1 also delivers the ability to connect to secure enterprise Wi-Fi networks and access corporate apps, documents and resources like SharePoint; native VPN client for instant access to corporate networks; and a native SCEP (Simple Certificate Exchange Protocol) client to retrieve digital certificates for secure resources. Fire OS also now supports Kerberos authentication, which enables the ability to browse secure Intranet websites from the Silk browser. The new Kindle Fire tablets also include Kindle-specific device management APIs that integrate with existing mobile device management (MDM) systems to make it easy for IT departments to manage Kindle Fire.

Additional new features of Fire OS 3.1 include:

- Cloud Collections helps you organize your books, newspapers, magazines, and apps in customized collections for easy reference, and Amazon's Whispersync technology synchronizes the collections across your Kindle devices and reading apps so they're available on all of your devices.

- Voice dictation converts your speech to text?available in all languages when online; offline support available in US English.

- 1-Tap archive which frees up space on your Kindle Fire by identifying items that have not been recently used and provides a 1-tap option to store them in the Cloud for later retrieval.

- Wireless printing of photos, PDF, e-mails, contacts, calendar and docs.

- New accessibility enhancements that enable blind and visually impaired customers to save a separate accessibility profile for children in Kindle FreeTime, scroll lists automatically when swipe navigating, hear enhanced sound feedback and screen orientation changes announced, and have more control when editing text and navigating web content.

- Performance and battery life improvements, and bug fixes.

Fire OS 3.1 is available on the new generation of Kindle tablets, including the $139 Kindle Fire HD, the 7" Kindle Fire HDX, and the 8.9" Kindle Fire HDX.
