Syncing non-Kindle documents to Kindle devices (workaround)

Amazon Kindle is probably the best ebook reader available in the market today. If you are habitual of reading books on multiple devices like me, you will know that WhisperSync is one of the the best features that Kindle offers!

No doubt, Kindle devices are a great way to read books, but did you know that you can also sync non-Kindle documents to your Kindle devices? This means that you can read your favorite articles, PDFs, and other documents on your Kindle without having to transfer them manually. Here’s how to do it:

  1. Send to Kindle App: Amazon has a free Send to Kindle app that allows you to send non-Kindle documents to your Kindle devices. The app is available for Windows, Mac, and mobile devices. To use the app, simply download it and install it on your device. Once installed, you can right-click on any document and select “Send to Kindle” from the drop-down menu. You can also drag and drop files onto the app to send them to your Kindle.
  2. Email: Another way to sync non-Kindle documents to your Kindle devices is by emailing them to your Kindle email address. To find your Kindle email address, go to your Amazon account and select “Manage Your Content and Devices” > click on the “Preferences” tab > scroll down to the “Personal Document Settings” section. Here, you will see your Kindle email address. To send a document to your Kindle, simply email it to your Kindle email address as an attachment.
  3. USB Transfer: If you don’t want to use the Send to Kindle app or email, you can also transfer non-Kindle documents to your Kindle devices via USB. Connect your Kindle device to your computer via USB and navigate to the “Documents” folder on your Kindle. Drag and drop your non-Kindle documents into this folder to transfer them to your Kindle.

It is important to note that not all non-Kindle documents are compatible with Kindle devices.

For example, documents with DRM (Digital Rights Management) protection or certain formatting may not display correctly on your Kindle. However, most common file types such as PDFs, Word documents, and TXT files should work just fine.

Overall, syncing non-Kindle documents to your Kindle devices is a great way to read your favorite articles and documents on the go. With the Send to Kindle app, email, and USB transfer options, it is easy to transfer your documents to your Kindle. Just remember to make sure that your documents are compatible with your Kindle device before syncing.
