What is the compatibility of an Alexa speaker with a Kindle


What is the compatibility of an Alexa speaker with a Kindle

Amazon’s Kindle lineup is one of the most successful families of e-readers ever sold. Kindle devices are cheap, easy to use, and incredibly long-lasting. Many of them are waterproof now and the battery lasts for weeks on end.

 There are currently three types of Kindles available: the base model Kindle, the Paperwhite and Paperwhite Signature Edition, and the Kindle Oasis.

The Amazon Kindle comes with loads of Amazon apps and services, so it's natural to wonder whether you can use an Alexa speaker with it. Echo Dot is the brand name for the company's smart speaker devices. 

With the Echo Dot speaker, you can control a variety of smart devices hands-free anywhere in your home. It's as easy as setting everything up on your phone and talking to Alexa.

As long as your Amazon account is connected to the relevant platform and you've paid for whatever you're trying to access, Alexa can play music from third-party apps such as Spotify or read audiobooks from Audible.

 The Kindle is also set up with your Amazon account, so you'd think that your Alexa smart speaker would work with it as well. Unfortunately, that's not the case. In your Kindle e-reader, you have access to Audible.

 The Kindle can be paired with any speaker - other than an Amazon Echo Dot - using Bluetooth if it supports it. With Amazon-branded e-paper devices, you can even listen to audiobooks using wireless Bluetooth earbuds or headphones.

The Amazon Kindle e-readers, however, do not feature Alexa. Without the extras, you will only be able to use your Alexa speaker like a regular Bluetooth speaker. 

As a result, you are no longer able to control your Amazon device with voice commands via an Amazon smart speaker. If you're looking for a speaker for your Kindle, there's no need to spend money on an Amazon Echo Dot.

The Echo Dot speakers still have some advantages over other Bluetooth speakers, though. Your Alexa speaker can control a lot of your smart home devices, and the audio quality is quite good.

The understated design looks lovely, and newer models like the Echo Dot cost under $50. Additionally, there are three colorways and an adorable Kids Edition. As a whole, the Echo Dot is a very good Alexa speaker, despite not having anything to do with e-readers.
