Open and Play a Song on Your Kindle Fire

First, you have to locate an item to play on your Kindle Fire, and then you can use the playback toolbar to control the playback. Follow these steps to play music from your Music library:

  1. Tap the Music button on the Kindle Fire Home screen.

  2. Locate an item you want to play on a tab in the Music library, such as Songs or Artists.

  3. If you open a tab other than Songs, you need to tap to open an album or playlist to view the contents.

  4. Tap to play it.

    If you tap the first song in a group of music selections, such as an album or playlist, Kindle Fire begins to play all selections, starting with the one you tapped.

  5. Use the controls to control playback.

    Tap the button with horizontal lines in the top-right of the screen to go back to the album or playlist the song belongs to. To go back to the Now Playing screen for the song, tap its image at the top-right of the screen.

    You can adjust playback volume by tapping Quick Settings and then Volume, or use the Volume setting in the Now Playing controls.

If you want to use a headphone with your Kindle Fire, which can improve the sound and remove extraneous noise, plug a compatible headphone into the headphone jack at the bottom of the device, near the Power button.
