Kindle Keyboard Software Updates

The latest software version for Kindle Keyboard is 3.4. This update automatically downloads and installs on your Kindle Keyboard when connected wirelessly; however, you can also manually download the software and transfer the update to your device via USB cable.

The software update includes general improvements and the following new features:

  • Improved Font: With improved contrast and sharp, clear text, reading on your Kindle Keyboard is easier on your eyes.
  • Parental Controls: Restrict access to the Experimental Web Browser, the Kindle Store, and Archived Items. While the Kindle Store and Archived Items are locked with Parental Controls, you can continue to buy books from a computer and send them to the Kindle wirelessly for a child to read.
  • Support for comic books and children's picture books: Read comic books panel by panel with Kindle Panel View, and children's picture books with Kindle Text Pop-Up. Supported titles can be purchased from the Kindle Store.
  • Whispersync for Voice: Switch back and forth between reading and listening without losing your place. Whispersync for Voice will synchronize what you read on any Kindle platform device with Audible playback on supported Kindle devices and reading apps, or the Audible apps for iPhone and Android.
