Amazon Minimum Specifications
Amazon minimum specifications will be similar to what is supported on Android (OpenGL 3.0, 1gb of available RAM, etc.). However, given the limited number of available Amazon devices, we were able to list out the entire set of supported Amazon devices in the spoiler below. If your device is not on this list, you will not be able to receive the Terraria 1.3 update. However, your existing Terraria 1.2 version will remain fully functional as it is now.
