Amazon presents the best support for Kindle EPUB “Amazon”.

If you’ve downloaded the e-book in the last decade, it’s probably an EPUB file. Well, if you haven’t bought it Amazon Of course.

For many years, the company used its patented AZW format for e-books, but now it is opening its doors. Like. Recent update Submit Kindle documentation (noticed first Good E-Reader) reported that Amazon ereaders will support EPUB files “until the end of 2022”.

Since its launch in 2007, EPUB is poised to become an e-book file with The Book Industry Study Group (BISG), an American trade group that seeks to simplify publication. EPUB declaration should be the standard for the sector.

Of course, Amazon is being Amazon He ignored it.

The online retailer usually uses the aforementioned AZW format, its own version MOBI. This is a file system created by Mobipocket, which Amazon acquired in 2005.

Now you may have an urgent question: why the hell is Amazon doing this Kindle finally offer EPUB support?

Well, it’s all about consumer choice and freedom.

There are many other places where you can buy e-books outside of the Kindle store. This includes not only other large retailers such as Kobo and Barnes & Noble, but also purchasing them directly from the publishers themselves. The latter is especially important because, as noted by The Vergeauthors may receive a larger amount from these transactions.

So far, if you wanted to get a third-party ebook on the Amazon ereader, you will probably need to convert it using third-party software such as Caliberbefore using the Send to Kindle feature to get it on your device.

Until Caliber it’s a great tool, for most people it’s too far. For example, I can’t imagine my parents ever downloading software and using it to convert an e-book they bought elsewhere.

Future support for Amazon’s EPUB files means that this step is no longer required.

Technically, you should be able to download an e-book in a popular format and easily send it to your Kindle without having to convert to third-party developers.

Okay, right? Well, yes – but no.

Amazon is Amazon

Although the company has simplified the placement of other companies’ e-books on Kindle devices, it is not easier to do the opposite.

Let me explain. Instead, Amazon supports its own EPUB files convert them to KF8 (or AZW3).

This means that once you decide to escape from the walled Amazon garden, it will be difficult (although not impossible) to transfer all your Kindle eBooks to another reader.

But, of course, the company wants that.

Kindle is a popular device because it makes digital reading so seamless. Features such as Whispersync (where you can smoothly switch between digital novel and audio), the ease of purchase in the Kindle Store and the ability to read on multiple devices make the service ideal for most people.

Discovering EPUB “support” in most Amazon ways is simply to saturate a small percentage of experienced Kindle users who like to get their books from elsewhere. In fact, Bezos’s hippopotamus opens the door to the slit to let in air, but doesn’t let it out.
