Introducing Blue Shade

Read comfortably at night…

Blue Shade is an exclusive Fire OS “Bellini” feature that works behind the scenes to automatically adjust and optimise the backlight for a more comfortable night-time reading experience. Simply tap Blue Shade on the quick actions menu to turn on this feature and enjoy your favourite book, news article, app, or any other night-time activity without straining your eyes.

…without giving up a good night’s sleep

Recent studies by the Harvard Health Publication have shown that evening exposure to blue light from electronic screens can suppress our bodies’ production of melatonin, a naturally occurring hormone. A lack of melatonin can prolong the time it takes to fall asleep, which in turn can delay REM sleep and reduce alertness the following morning. Blue Shade gives you the option to fine-tune the colour settings, with the device intelligently adjusting the colour filtering so that at any colour or brightness, the blue wavelength light is always suppressed.


Over 500,000 apps and games

Fire tablets feature instant access to thousands of the most popular free and bestselling games, social media, premium TV and movie providers, and so much more.

The best games

Enjoy bestselling games such as Candy Crush Jelly Saga, Hay Day, Subway Surfers, Game of War - Fire Age, Hungry Shark World and Hearthstone: Heroes of Warcraft.


Huge music selection

With millions of songs from thousands of artists, Amazon Music brings all your favourite music to your fingertips. Digital music you buy from Amazon is saved to your music library for free, and you can play or download it anytime.

Ad-free access to two million songs with Prime Music

Prime members can enjoy unlimited, ad-free access to two million songs and over a thousand playlists. Find more music from your favourite artists, follow along to lyrics with X-Ray, or let Amazon's personalised recommendations introduce you to your next favourite band.

Audiobooks by Audible

Audiobooks are great for enlivening your daily commute, for enjoying whilst cooking or for motivating yourself while keeping fit - all those times you can listen but can't read. Audible, an Amazon company, has the world’s largest collection of downloadable audiobooks with over 200,000 titles including books by top-selling authors such as Stephen King, J.K. Rowling and George R.R. Martin. Our books are wonderfully read by professional narrators and performers such as Hollywood’s Jake Gyllenhaal (The Great Gatsby) and Kate Winslet (Matilda).

Read and Listen

Now on Fire tablets, read and listen simultaneously with real-time highlighting. It's called Immersion Reading and that's what it does: immerse you in a story by narrating and highlighting the text as you read. It sparks an extra connection that boosts engagement and comprehension, taking you deeper into the book.

Introducing Amazon Music Unlimited

For only £7.99/month for Prime members (non-Prime price: £9.99/month), stream 40 million songs and enjoy curated playlists, stations and weekly new releases—on-demand and always ad-free. Plus, with offline listening, your music is always at your fingertips. Learn more
