Turn Automatic Book Updates On or Off

You can choose whether or not to receive updates automatically for your Kindle books. With this setting enabled, books on your devices will receive the latest version with corrections and improvements when it becomes available from the publisher or author.

In order to preserve your reading progress, bookmarks, notes, highlights and annotations across different versions of books, make sure that all of your Kindle devices and reading apps have Annotations Backup or Whispersync for Books turned on. For more information, go to Back Up Your Bookmarks, Notes & Highlights.

Note: Annotations Backup is enabled automatically and can't be turned off on Fire tablets.

To enable or disable Automatic Book Updates:

  1. Go to Manage Your Content and Devices.
  2. Select the Settings tab.
  3. Under Automatic Book Update, select On or Off.

    Note: If you select Off, you will no longer receive book updates automatically. In some cases when an author or publisher requests it, you may receive an email notification when an update is available to download.
