Read kindle books with Alexa

With Kindle Books by Alexa, you can ask Alexa to read eligible Kindle books in your library. Alexa reads your Kindle books with the same text-to-speech technology used for Wikipedia articles, news articles, and calendar events.

Alexa reads eligible books:

To find eligible books in the Alexa app, open the left navigation panel and then select [ Music & Books ]> [ Kindle Books ] > [ Books Alexa can read ] .

Note: Alexa does not support the following Kindle content and features:

When you ask Alexa to read your Kindle book, Alexa picks up from where you left off in the book on another compatible Amazon device or reading app. Alexa reads Kindle books eligible for Text-to-Speech (an experimental reading technology that allows supported Vobot to read Kindle books aloud).

Note: Alexa on Fire tablets won't show the text of a book onscreen or activate immersion reading when reading a book.

Tip: To go to different chapters in a Kindle book, select the [ Now Playing ] bar in the Alexa app when Alexa reads your Kindle book, and then select [ Queue ]. You can then choose a chapter from the list.
