Fire OS devices don't honor SDK 14+ View.SYSTEM_UI_FLAG_LOW_PROFILE

Experiencing this on Kindle Fire HDX 8.9" and on Kindle Fire HDX 7": When I attempt to set the View.SYSTEM_UI_FLAG_LOW_PROFILE flag on my decorView() it gets removed almost immediately after. After executing this in my activity: [i]getWindow().getDecorView().setSystemUiVisibility(View.SYSTEM_UI_FLAG_LOW_PROFILE);[/i] I receive 2 onSystemUiVisibilityChange events right after each other. onSystemUiVisibilityChange(visibility == 1) // 1 == SYSTEM_UI_FLAG_LOW_PROFILE onSystemUiVisibilityChange(visibility == 0) Both devices claim there's no system updates available. Is this an unsupported feature?

Hi Maria, Sorry for delayed response. SYSTEM_UI_FLAG_LOW_PROFILE is not supported in Fire OS at this moment. However, I'm going to forward this feedback/suggestion to the concern team.
