Exclamation Fire OS 6?

Hello everyone!

Does anyone know when the new fire OS 6 based on marshmallow is going to come out?

Thanks.

Tyler.

No problem.

Now moved to the Kindle Fire forum.

The just announced new Fire HD 8 will be shipping later this month with Fire OS 5.4. I expect that the recent Fire tablets will be updated to that version later this year. I wouldn't expect to see anything else in the foreseeable future.

Coming soon: Fire OS 5.4

In addition to Alexa, our next Fire OS update will also allow you to quickly access great game play directly from the Games tab with Twitch, the world’s leading social video platform and community for gamers. Fire tablet owners will also have easy access to over 65,000 recommendations from ComiXology, which provides an unrivaled library of comic books, graphic novels, manga and more.

There was a developer preview of Fire OS 5 a few months before it was released for Fire tablets. Perhaps we'll have a similar lead time for Fire OS 6. But assuming Fire OS 6 will be based on Android 6, we have already waited longer for a preview than was the case for Android 5.

But at this point it might make more sense for them to skip 6 and pick up Nougat (7) for a Fire OS 7 next year some time. Nougat initial release was last month, a little shorter than previous cycles, and if Google sticks with 9 month release cycle Amazon may not want to match that.
