Amazon Appstore is said to be completely broken on Android 12, with reports of constant crashes and bugs flooding the Amazon support forum. Android 12 was released to the public in October 2021, and beta copies have been made available to developers for an even longer period. So this appears to be a misstep on Amazon’s part, as the Appstore would be unusable by multiple Android 12 users. An Amazon staff member has since acknowledged the existence of these issues and stated that the technical team “still working on the resolution”.
According to user comments on this post on the Amazon Support Forum, the Amazon Appstore was unable to display any of the previously purchased or downloaded apps for multiple users. In addition, they were unable to access any other application on the Appstore. Apparently another bug was preventing apps from receiving updates. Several users mentioned that these issues can occur due to Amazon’s DRM interference with both paid and free apps. Amazon reportedly resorted to the following mention on the Appstore while it worked on fixes: “We’re also excited about Android 12. Unfortunately, we’re fixing some issues. Thank you for your patience while we get your Appstore back. “
Recently, Microsoft announced that the Amazon Appstore will serve as the primary Android marketplace on Windows 11. A total of 50 apps are currently available on the Windows 11 version of the Amazon Appstore. However, this version of the Amazon Appstore is only accessible by Windows 11 beta testers in the United States. For Android users, the Amazon Appstore is a great alternative to the Google Play Store. Its library includes a collection of over 460,000 applications. But, with no clear indication from Amazon as to when these bugs will be fixed, Appstore users who want to upgrade to Android 12 would have to wait for now.
