After a month full of problems, the Amazon Appstore is back on Android 12

Tech Highlights:

  • But whatever the root of the problem may have been, it appears the bugs and crashes have finally been fixed for good. If you’re an Amazon Appstore user who has been significantly affected, such as not having been able to access digital content you’ve purchased due to the issues, you may rest assured that all is finally well, and you may even expect to be contacted by Amazon directly to ensure a smooth future experience. “We have released a fix for an issue impacting app launches for Amazon Appstore customers that have upgraded to Android 12 on their mobile devices,” an Amazon spokesperson reported in an interview with Engadget this week. “We are contacting customers with steps to update their Appstore experience. We are sorry for any disruption this has caused.”

  • The Amazon Appstore has been acting strangely on Android phones for more than a month. Users of the online software platform for Android smartphones learned in October that the Amazon Appstore became a completely broken mess as soon as they installed the much-anticipated October upgrade to the operating system—Android 12—on their phones. According to Engadget, one of the popular ideas for the recurring issues was that Amazon’s built-in DRM (a technique used to prevent products from theft or copyright infringement) was incompatible with Android 12. The corporation has also refused to comment on the nature of the problem, failing to even recognise that one existed until more than a month after it began.

It isn’t clear exactly how many Android devices using Amazon Appstore have been affected, but the Google Pixel 6 and Samsung Galaxy S21 are among those that ended up unable to run any of the games or other apps purchased from the platform. Besides losing access to their already owned software, many owners reported seeing no apps whatsoever inside the Appstore itself. All this is now permanently resolved.
