T3 is a huge fan of the best Kindle e-readers. From the standard Kindle to the Kindle Paperwhite and the premium Kindle Oasis, they offer arguably the best digital reading experience on the market today.
Exciting, however, Amazon Kindle owners are about to see this experience. become even betterbecause a brand new software update is currently being rolled out that brings a series of improvements.
The biggest change introduced by the update is the way the Kindle software is actually displayed, with the top-mounted toolbar removed and a large search bar included in its place.
At the bottom of the user interface there are also only two buttons left, one for “Home” and one for the digital read of the user “Library”. There is also now a central icon that allows the reader to jump to their most recently read book and, in what will be music to the ears of many Kindle owners, the quick settings menu is now easily accessible as a new one. arrow has been placed on the UI that points to it – the days of random tapping at the top of the screen trying to find it are over! All of these changes have been made to make browsing Kindles easier and more streamlined.
The changes aren’t just cosmetic, however, with many users reporting that once the update is installed their Kindle’s responsiveness has increased and the user interface is now much smoother to navigate as well.
The latest Amazon Kindle update is version 5.13.7, and it’s now rolling out to all Kindle devices. Most devices in Amazon’s e-reader family will already be eligible to download the update, and if not now, soon, with a rollout over the next week.
To get the latest software update, simply turn on your Kindle and connect to a Wi-Fi network. If it is available on your device, then the update will automatically download and be available for installation. The update can also be downloaded manually from the Kindle E-Reader Software Updates web page.
