In February this year, Microsoft announced that it would bring a new sharing option to Word to allow seamless sharing of documents across Amazon Kindle devices. The Redmond tech giant has kept its promise by not announcing the availability of a “Send to Kindle” sharing option in Word.
Microsoft Word for Mac and Windows is now able to let you share your Word documents across your Kindle devices without any hassle. This will allow you to read Word documents on your Kindle devices.
To improve the reading experience, Microsoft Word will also let you choose how you want to display documents on Kindle. You can choose from read-before-hit options. send: Like a burning book And Like a printed document. As Microsoft describes it, the first option will “enable you to adjust the font size and page layout, and is best suited for text with easy formatting and reading on small screens.” If the text has more complex formatting, Microsoft recommends selecting the Printed Document option because “Same as Printed Document” keeps the page layout and formatting the same.
in this Official blog post, Microsoft announced limited availability of the new Kindle Sharing option. For Windows users, the “Send to Kindle” feature is currently available to Microsoft 365 Insiders in beta and existing channels. It is available in the following internal configurations:
- Beta channel users running version 2305 (build 16403.20000) or later
- Current Channel (preview) users running version 2304 (build 16327.20104) or later
On the other hand, Mac users will need Word for Mac Insiders Version 16.72 (Build 23040200) or later to send their documents to Kindle.
Microsoft also made two important announcements regarding new sharing functionality. First, the ability to sync ink annotations and edits to your documents in Kindle is not currently supported. Second, “Send to Kindle” will be available for Word for Web in the future.
