Music & Audio Controls

By tapping the "music" icon in the launcher bar on your home screen, you will open the proprietary music player of the Amazon Kindle Fire HD 8.9 inch. Once you've opened a song you would like to listen to, you'll be met by a screen with a huge version of the album art, and some basic controls. Namely, the same ubiquitous play/pause, scrub bar, and volume slider.

Music & Audio Management

Music that has been downloaded from the 'net or uploaded to your device should all end up in the "music" folder on your device. In order to access it, all you have to do is tap the "music" icon on your launcher bar at the top of your homescreen, and you will be taken to a screen with album art representing the music files you have on your device, where you can sort your options in a tile or list format.
