How to enable mic on Kindle Fire?

What? Amazon Kindle Fire does not have internal mic build in? Yes, the budget Android tablet Kindle Fire really does not have any microphone. So how to enable mic feature on Kindle Fire? Can we hack it with software? Nope, no software solution but we do can have mic on Kindle Fire…

Mic on Kindle Fire

Yes, just plug in any earphone or headset with mic in Kindle Fire’s 3.5 mm stereo jack. You will have your very own mic on Kindle Fire then. Don’t be too happy then. Not all Android applications and games that require mic work on Kindle Fire. I tried Skype. It dropped call once get connected. Talking Tom Cat prompted no mic was found. So far, I only managed to get Voice Recorder to work.

Anyway, Kindle Fire is not my main Android device, Samsung Galaxy S II is. So I use video and voice call feature on it usually.


  1. Really? No microphone? Because I own a Fire 8, two Fire 7’s, and a Fire 10, and they all have microphones. Just saying. Not soncething fancy you’d want to use to record studio-quality podcasts or anything, but certainly just as good as your average Android phone.
