Kindle users await a special gift with the latest update from amazon to its popular line of eReader devices. The company released a rare interface update that will make browsing Kindles a more enjoyable experience for devices released after 2015.

What’s new in Kindle e-readers?

The new Kindle eReaders interface isn’t exactly rewriting the book on browsing. However, it seems a bit more streamlined and modern than the old interface, which was released in 2016.

Amazon describes the update as “a new, intuitive and easier Kindle reading experience with our latest software update rolling out to Kindle in the coming weeks.”

Following the trend that is offered on most smartphones and tablets , Amazon is adding a swipe down from the top of the screen menu that will allow you to adjust the brightness of the device, activate Airplane Mode, and access All Settings quickly.

The Home and Library sections are being updated with new filter and sort menus, a new collections view, and an interactive scroll bar. There is also an option to swipe left to access 20 recently read books.

The update will come to Kindle eReaders eighth generation and above , 7th-generation Kindle Paperwhite devices and higher, and Kindle Oasis hardware. If you have an older Kindle, you will have to stick with the old interface.
