These software updates will include:
*Kindle FreeTime, a tablet experience just for kids allowing parents to set daily screen time limits, and give access to appropriate content for each child.
*A setting so customers can control whether or not personalized recommendations appear below the carousel on the device homepage.
*Ability for customers to set the default device language to one of six languages, including English (US), English (UK), German, French, Italian, and Spanish.
We will be delivering this update over wireless connections in the coming weeks. Customers who prefer to receive the update immediately can manually download and install the software update from: http://www.amazon.com/kindlesoftwareupdates
