Music & Audio Controls

Playing music on the Amazon Kindle Fire HD is easy, though the advanced options are a bit lacking. By tapping the "music" icon on the launch bar, you'll be taken to a list of your media available through your Amazon account. Once you've downloaded a song or uploaded your own, tapping the respective icon will begin playback, giving you a larger image of the album art, a play/pause icon, a scrub bar, and volume slider.

Music & Audio Management

Of the few things left untampered with from Android 4.0.3 is the file management system: all your music will be downloaded into a folder with the same name onto your tablet, but can be accessed through the music app. Once there, you will see one of a couple views, but the default will allow you see a splash of album art images that you can tap to access.
