Amazon.com, Inc. (NASDAQ:AMZN) has created a new way to “Send To Kindle” to help users save news articles and other content for later, offline reading.
All you have to do is tap a button, and the content is sent to your Kindle device or app instantly. Amazon.com, Inc. (NASDAQ:AMZN) said in a statement that users will no longer have to hunt for a website or blog that once interested them.
Simply open your Kindle and you will find everything here through your web-to-device setup.
Users can add the new feature in a number of ways. The feature is available as a web browser extension for Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome. It can also be installed on your personal computers or Macs from Android smartphones or from your emails.
If you find anything interesting on your desktop or web browser, simply tap the Send To Kindle button you have installed, and the content will be sent to Kindle. In your web browser, the Send To Kindle button will appear beside your bookmark links.
Website owners can also add the feature to their pages. If you own a WordPress website, Amazon.com, Inc. (NASDAQ:AMZN) allows you to add the Send To Kindle feature as a plugin. It will work just like “Share” and “Like” buttons on web pages you are already familiar with.
When a user taps the Send To Kindle button, the webpages the user are reading will be sent to their Kindle e-reader or Kindle apps on their smartphones. Amazon.com, Inc. (NASDAQ:AMZN) also offers Kindle as an app for iOS and Android devices.
However, Send To Kindle feature isn’t an entirely new idea. Instapaper app has been offering a similar service for year, says the Los Angeles Times. The Safari web browser also comes with a similar Apple Reading List.
Amazon.com, Inc. (NASDAQ:AMZN) shares were almost flat at $256.39 at 3:07 PM EDT.
