What you need to know

  • The Microsoft Office app and OneNote are now available on Amazon Fire Tablets through the Amazon Appstore.
  • Outlook and OneDrive were already available on the Amazon Appstore for Fire tablets.
  • The app releases line up with the launch of the new Amazon Fire HD 10 and Fire HD 10 Plus tablets.

You can now grab the Microsoft Office app and OneNote for Amazon Fire tablets through the Amazon Appstore. The new apps from Microsoft join OneDrive and Outlook, which were already available on Fire tablets. The launch of the new apps coincides with Amazon's announcement of the new Fire HD 10 and Fire HD 10 Plus. There's also a new Fire HD 10 Productivity Bundle that includes a detachable keyboard case and a 12-month Microsoft 365 personal subscription.

The Office app brings together Word, Excel, and PowerPoint into a single app. It's similar to the newly-updated Office app on iPadOS and the Office app for Android. Having the core Microsoft 365 apps in one place makes it easy to see and edit all of your Office documents.

OneNote is also a welcome addition to Fire tablets. It's a popular app for taking notes that integrates with the web. It works with touch and keyboards, so it should pair well with the new Fire HD 10 Productivity Bundle.

A Microsoft 365 personal subscription comes with the premium Office apps, 1TB of cloud storage, and advanced security for multiple devices. You can use a personal Microsoft 365 subscription on up to five devices at once.
