The Amazon Appstore is finally working on Android 12
According to reports, Amazon has resolved a significant Appstore problem for Android 12 devices.
Users using Android 12 were unable to run both free and premium apps acquired through the Play Store.
Due to Amazon’s inability to adequately test the storefront on Android 12, customers were unable to start apps purchased through the store.
Thankfully, a business official told Engadget that the issue has been resolved thanks to an Amazon Appstore update:
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.
Amazon is providing impacted consumers with information on how to update the Appstore software on their devices, according to the spokeswoman.
We’re thinking it’s as simple as going to Amazon’s own page and installing the latest version of the app.
This should presumably put a stop to a long-running issue that Android 12 users have been experiencing.
Android 12 users have been unable to start apps downloaded from the Appstore since October, according to threads dating back to October.
Both premium and free apps were affected by the problem, which appeared to be tied to the storefront’s DRM.
Let’s hope this issue isn’t resolved by the time Android 13 is launched.
