Kindle readers will support the ePUB format and will drop MOBI. But there are questions about it – Živě.cz

Amazon has announced that it will update the service and app later this year Send to Kindle It also accepts the ePUB e-book format. On the other hand, it also removes support for MOBI format (.mobi, .azw). Of course, existing books will remain in readers.

This creates a paradoxical situation, as all competing readers have always supported ePUB, but e-book stores have had to offer MOBI in parallel in order to read in popular Kindles. This, of course, applies to third-party companies. Everyone who buys directly on Amazon does not have to deal with the formats, because it will immediately download the original KF8, which is behind the creators of the reader.

It is not yet clear if Kindly will also display ePUB locally, or there will only be an automatic conversion through Send to Kindle. Personally, I would rather guess the second option. For ePUBs, you will have to forget about the encrypted DRM protection anyway. Only books with Social DRM will work (the majority is probably in the Czech Republic).

Send to Kindle lets you send files to readers via Windows and macOS software, but there’s also an add-on for Chrome and Android apps. But the email version works, too. In the Kindle settings, you can choose the address to which you send the message with the book as an attachment. The reader then downloads it himself, transfers it and puts it in the library even without a cable.

What we don’t know yet is how other apps in collaboration with Kindly will behave. Typical, for example, the famous caliber for managing, converting and editing electronic books.
