The Fire OS is a heavily customized version of Android developed specifically for the Kindle Fire. The new HDX tablets ship with "Mojito," the third-generation Fire OS. The operating system will arrive with the upcoming tablets and push more updates mid-November.
Mojito's key features include "1-Tap Archive," which identifies content that has not been used in a while and provides the option to clear space on the tablet by moving the media to the cloud. Kindle's "X-ray" feature, which shows additional information in books, movies, and TV, is expanding to music. Accessibility tools like Screen Magnifier are also improved in the new OS.
Prime Instant Video, Amazon's Netflix-like subscription service, is now available for offline viewing for no additional cost. Screen-mirroring on Miracast-enabled accessories or TVs is another long-awaited feature for the Kindle Fire. Like this year's Paperwhite, the Kindle Fire HDX will receive Goodreads integration later this year.
The most notable addition is the "Mayday" button. Learn more about Amazon's new tech support service in the next slide.
