I'm tryhing to install any version of Google Chrome on Kindle Fire using instructions here -- https://www.technipages.com/kindle-fire-how-to-install-google-chrome-via-apk-file. I have followed all the instructions up to the point where I actually have to download an APK file, evidently needed to install Chrome. However, I'm confused about which file I need. On Chrome's site, all the files they list are for Android operating systems ...

https://www.apkmirror.com/apk/google-inc/chrome/

In as far as I'm using a Kindle Fire, I don't see any APK files on the site appropriate to a Kindle. Where do I find such a file?

  • Why do those questions belong on an Android site? I'm not trying to install Chrome on Android, I want to install it on Kindle.

    First, questions about installing Google Chrome are completely off-topic for Web Applications. Second, the Kindle Fire is based on Android, so is also off-topic at Super User. Android Enthusiasts is the best possible match. If this question doesn't belong here, then it doesn't have a home any where on Stack Exchange.

The instructions on that site pretty much explains everything. Since Kindle Fire OS is based on Android OS, you just need to know to which Android version does your Fire OS corresponds.

Also check the appropriate CPU architecture. For example for Chrome Browser 62.0.3202.84, click on all variants (or this link), then on the next screen you see that for each variant there is a compatibility table for each CPU architecture (i.e arm, arm64) as well as Android version.

If your Fire is based on Android 5.0 and arm architecture then, select that one for download and install.

Remember to reboot your device after installing
