The Mopria Advantage

We want to save you the hassle of installing apps for every printer you use. Our goal is to provide a single free print service that lets you print from your favorite apps to any printer.

 

Working With Amazon

It's all about sharing and productivity. Amazon included the Mopria Print Service to enable Fire Tablets to print just like other Android, iOS, and Windows devices.

MOPRIA stands for the MObile PRInt Alliance. It's goal is to make mobile printing easy and intuitive.

Formed by Canon, HP, Samsung and Xerox in 2013 with the rest of print industry joining in 2014, its goal is to allow you to easily print to ALL printers regardless of brand. The Mopria Alliance wants to ensure you do not have to download and set up software for each printer you encounter. We have worked with Amazon to include Mopria technology on Kindle Fire tablets.


The entire print industry and leading technology companies are members of the Mopria Alliance. Our membership represents 97% of all printers sold worldwide. As of March of 2017, the following companies are members: Adobe, Avision, Brother, Canon, Dell, Epson, Fuji-Xerox, HP, Konica Minolta, Kyocera, Lexmark, NEC, Qualcomm, Pantum, Primax, Ricoh, Samsung, Sharp, Toshiba, YSoft, and Xerox.


It is a Fire OS system app that allows you to print to multiple printer brands and is pre-installed on most Amazon Fire tablets.


This app allows you to print to multiple printers without having to download an individual app for each printer you encounter. It saves you both time and valuable disk space.


Amazon wanted you to have the ability to print to multiple printer brands just like users of Android, iOS, Mac and Windows devices. Our app is also the closest to a "universal print driver". By including it, Fire tablet users can print to most printers they encounter.


Our app is a preinstalled Fire OS system tool and works in the background. If you loaded the Google Play Store app (not recommended or supported by Amazon or Google), the Play Store will auto update to the newest version found there. This updated version includes the icon. Please note, our software was just updated and not newly installed.


Since the Mopria Print Service was pre-installed by Amazon to provide easy mobile printing and is also on the Google Play store, it is definitely safe to use. The Mopria Print Service is created by the Mopria Alliance, a printer industry collaboration focused on providing easy-to-use and secure printing solutions.


Our app asks for access to your SD card so it can locate and print your files and photos stored there. This is a standard Fire OS permission.


The Silk Browser, Email, Calendar, Camera, and Docs are a few of the Amazon apps that support printing. Other apps that have enabled printing include Adobe Acrobat Reader, OfficeSuite, and WPS Office, as well as many photo apps.


The vast majority of new printers and over 100 million printers sold are Mopria-certified. Certified printer brands include Brother, Canon, Dell, Epson, Fuji-Xerox, HP, Konica Minolta, Kyocera, Lexmark, Pantum, Ricoh, Samsung, Sharp, Toshiba, and Xerox.


Please go to Settings/Apps & Games/Manage All Applications and then swipe left to view "ALL" applications. Scroll up until you can see the Mopria Print Service.


Unfortunately, you cannot uninstall this app since it is integrated into the Amazon Fire OS. However, it works in the background and is similar to the Windows or iOS print systems which also cannot be uninstalled.


Please note: Google Play is not officially supported by Amazon or Google to run on the Fire tablet.

The Mopria Print Service is pre-installed by Amazon and serves as the default print system for Fire OS. Amazon chose the Mopria app because it allows its users to print to multiple printer brands.

When you loaded Google Play, a newer version (with the icon) found on the Play Store updated the older pre-installed version of our app. Auto updates is a default setting in the Google Play app. This is the reason the Mopria icon appears shortly after you loaded Google Play.

 


Please note: Google Play is not officially supported by Amazon or Google to run on the Fire tablet.

Since the Mopria Print Service app is integrated into the Amazon Fire OS, it cannot be uninstalled. It can be downgraded to the original version which will also remove the icon.

Please see the App Removal section for step-by-step instructions on how to remove the Mopria icon.


Please note: Google Play is not officially supported by Amazon or Google to run on the Fire tablet.

Our app is designed for two very distinct users. 1) Amazon Fire users and 2) Android device users. For Fire users, the Mopria Print Service is pre-installed by Amazon to allow for printing without any additional setup or download. For Android users who want the same benefit, they need to find and download our app from the Google Play Store.

When Google Play is installed onto a Fire tablet, the Play Store automatically finds the pre-installed version of our app, deems it is out of date and automatically updates it to the newest version with the icon.

Since Amazon and Google do not support Google Play on the Fire tablet, they will not help troubleshoot any issues that may arise when the Play Store is installed.

The Mopria Alliance does not have a solution that will not adversely affect the majority of Amazon Fire users (without Google Play) or Android users who download our app from the Play Store. The only solution available is to remove the Mopria icon by reverting to the original pre-installed version and turning off the auto-update feature in the Google Play app.


Please note: Google Play is not officially supported by Amazon or Google to run on the Fire tablet.

Since our app is integrated into the Amazon Fire OS, you cannot uninstall it. You can only remove the icon by reverting to the original version and turning off the auto-update feature from the Google Play Store.

Please see the App Removal section for step-by-step instructions.


Most likely, this app is already on your Amazon Fire tablet and works in the background. Go to the Silk browser or photo gallery and try to print.
