The new Kindle Oasis is coming with a new cool feature that will let users listen to their books. Amazon is planning to roll out Audible audiobooks support for the $79 Kindle device. The older Kindles used to have the feature, but it was dropped from the later devices as they lost audio support.
Now, the company is bringing the update in the coming months. Audible is owned by Amazon that generates digital audiobooks, audio versions of magazines versions and books on the device.
The device doesn’t come with an audio jack; users will have to pair the device with Bluetooth to listen to the stories on the Audible.
The Audible support will be available via a free over-the-air update in coming months. The company is providing two free audiobooks for new members.
For now, only Oasis and basic model will receive updates while the Paperwhite and the Voyage don’t appear to support the feature.
Amazon will introduce new Kindle app with new icons, fonts and theme in the update. Upcoming Kindle app will contain large book covers, a new app icon, new fonts, and new light dark background themes.
In addition, the company has not revealed the release date other than saying that it’s coning in the next few months. Customers can get Amazon’s new Kindle Oasis, its priciest ebook reader at $250 which supports the service. As a part of company’s monthly deals, users can find discounts of up to 80 percent on Kindle books
