How to Set Default Kindle Device or Kindle App for Amazon Ebooks



Buying an ebook on Amazon is fast and easy. After purchasing your desired book, it will be delivered to your default device automatically. Then, you can immediately access it on your Kindle device or app. But for some users, having one device to read their ebooks is not enough. You may want to read on your Amazon Kindle now. Other times, it is better to read through the Kindle app on your Android or iOS mobile phone or even on your Windows 10 or Mac computer.

It is not difficult to manage more than one device when it comes to your Kindle app. But first, you might want to set or change the default Kindle device for all your Amazon ebooks, so you know where to find your purchased books after buying them.
