In short:

  • Amazon will start accepting EPUB files on Kindles by “late 2022.”
  • It’s held up since 2007, trying to ensure that the easiest way to read an e-book was to just buy a book through its Kindle e-book store.

the details:

  • Owning a Kindle has been the default choice for millions: well priced, capable, simple and standard for reading the latest thriller rereads of Lord Of The Rings or Twilight.
  • However, as an e-reader, it was a kind of walled garden: Amazon would let you upload files to your Kindle, but only if PDFs, Word documents, or the old MOBI file type, it contained were backed by a bit of a relic since it bought Mobipocket in 2005.
  • These limitations mean that if you want to buy some new or old sci-fi from a more ethical online store, you can’t use the quote “basically what everyone else in the world uses”, which is the EPUB.
  • Amazon uses a proprietary AZW3 file type (sometimes known as KF8) as its standard, but it’s now open to EPUB, a rare pro-consumer move.
  • Or is it just antitrust? At best, it sounds like a painstaking move that Amazon doesn’t really want to talk about. There is no advertisement or blog post. While that, Take Crunch He notes an update to the support page, here, Amazon’s help and customer service page.
  • With this, we can all email EPUB files, and Amazon will do the rest.
  • Apple doesn’t completely allow Android phones into iMessage, but it’s a big wall in the realm of protected ecosystems.

How to send an email to yourself:

  • As an aside, for Kindle owners out there, you know you have a Kindle email address, right? And you can send things to him?
  • Here’s the Amazon support page to see all the details, but basically, you can just send an email with an attachment and after some confirmation, it will upload to your Kindle.
  • It works fine! And it will work much faster and easier when it comes to EPUB support.
