Hello all hope everyone is safe and also warm from this bitter weather.
As per title my mothers kindle fire today stopped the Facebook messenger working and there seems to be no update. Now it is very old, I think it's the 2nd gen, but still works fine in itself.
Does anybody know a way around it to get an app compatible or is it now the time to look at getting rid and upgrading it?

    It's showing on the app store for my kindle, but it is a newer model.

    It’s not showing on the App Store, tried a few alternative apps but hasn’t worked. Such a shame as the device it self is fine but she needs the messenger app

    Personally just install the play store and install FB messenger from there. Probably the lite version tho as the tablet is abit old now.

    How do you install google play store? Lite works fine that's the version she has on her phone
