Getting Started with Fire OS Device Management

Fire OS is an operating system based on Android Open Source Project (AOSP) that runs on Amazon’s Fire tablets and phones.

You can enroll Amazon Fire tablets, phones and e-readers in Hexnode UEM to manage them all from a single console. Hexnode provides numerous Android-based functionalities that can be delivered across Fire OS devices as well. Let’s kick start with Fire OS device management.
