Amazon launches Fire OS 3.1 OTA update for Kindle Fire tablets

Amazon has started rolling out an OTA update for the range of its Kindle Fire tablets. The new Fire OS 3.1 comes with a number of new features, tweaks and bug fixes, including:

  • Deeper Goodreads integration that allows users to more easily share favorite quotes with others, view what their friends are reading, leave reviews, and import their Amazon library to the social network.
  • Updated Second Screen service that will connect to Samsung Smart TVs, PlayStation 3 and soon – the PlayStation 4.
  • The ability to connect to secure enterprise Wi-Fi networks.
  • Support for wireless printing.
  • Cloud Collections – for organizing your books, newspapers, magazines and apps in customized collections for easy reference.
  • Voice dictation that supports a number of languages, though only US English is supported in the offline mode.
  • 1-Tap archive that frees up space on your Kindle Fire by identifying items that have not been recently used. The feature will provide users with a 1-tap option to store these items in the Cloud for later retrieval.
  • New accessibility enhancements.

In addition, many new features have been added throughout the system, and there are also the ever-present performance and battery life improvements, and bug fixes…

Now, you can either wait for your Kindle Fire to inform you about the update or download it from here (and manually cramming it to your tablet).
