Before we move on to the final words let me tell you something straight. Google services are not available for Amazon Firestick and Fire TV devices because of the quarrel going on between Amazon and Google for some time.

Google applications do not run that well on Amazon Fire devices. On the other hand, Aptoide TV APK on FireStick provides you with easy access to applications you seek without causing any problem.

You do not face any legal issues or any kind of running issues of applications. I, certainly, do recommend you to bypass Google and use the Aptoide TV application if you want to enjoy the same applications on your Amazon Firestick and Fire TV device just like you enjoy them on your android devices.

In the end, I would just say that Aptoide TV will give you a far better experience than Google play on Firestick.

    • Yes, some of the app requires you to install Google Play, unfortunately. So that app won’t work until we have the fix to install Google Play.
