java – Amazon Fire Tablet – Do WorkManager PeriodicWorkRequest Work?-Exceptionshub

Questions:

Do WorkManager PeriodicWorkRequests work on Amazon Fire tablets? I can’t seem to find any documentation indicating that it wouldn’t, but I’m not seeing it work on my Amazon Fire 7 device running FireOS 5.3.7.0.

I’m testing an application I wrote that uses one, and I can’t get AlarmManager or WorkManager to do something periodically when the tablet is in any state (including at the lock screen with the screen being off).

Has anyone been able to use these workers to accomplish a periodic task on the Amazon Fire tablets?

The same WorkManager code is working on an official Android tablet, so I’m not sure what’s going on here.
