With its Fire OS for tablets, which is one of the most well-known derivatives of the Android operating system, Amazon is finally updating to Android 11.

Android 11, which is still one version behind Pixels and other recently released Android devices, is a long overdue upgrade for Amazon’s Fire OS. Previously, Android 9 served as the foundation for Fire OS, and Android 10 was not released.

What has Fire OS 8 added? As initially mentioned by the people at Lilliputing , Amazon’s developer documentation bragged about a few new features.

Amazon will support Direct Share, HEIF pictures, and mercifully, dark mode starting with Android 10. Although Amazon has not yet provided a preview of what that would look like, it appears that both the system as a whole and individual apps will have a systemwide dark mode setting.

Amazon is primarily implementing background procedures starting with Android 11, such as preventing toast messages from background apps. The capability to provide apps a single instance of access to a permission is one of the few user-facing modifications.

Although Fire OS 8 and Android 11 share feature parity, this does not necessarily mean that Fire OS 8 has access to all of Android 11’s capabilities. Fire OS 8 does not yet support several Android 11 capabilities, such as File Based Encryption (FBE).

When the new Fire 7 tablet is released next month, Amazon will unveil its Fire OS 8 operating system based on Android 11. The business hasn’t yet stated whether any of its current tablets would receive updates.
