How to send a file from your phone to Kindle

Step 1. Open documents, photos, and other applications with Kindle-compatible files and access the sharing tool. Since some apps offer link sharing, care must be taken not to select this option. Always choose the submission as “attachment” or “copy” – this is the case of Microsoft Word and Google Drive.

Step 2. Choose one of the formats supported by Kindle and select your e-mail application as the destination.

Step 3. Enter your Kindle email (noted in the first step) as the recipient of the message and send. Then go to the Sent Items folder to check if the content came out with the attachment.

Once the Kindle connects to the internet, the synchronization system downloads content for offline reading.

By chance, that doesn’t happen or you come across any other issue, then you should restart your Kindle device, as most of the issues are fixed by rebooting the device, so you can try this first line of troubleshooting. If you find that Kindle is not reading a specific file format, then there must be some weird issue with the device. In that case, you will have to get in touch with the Device Support.
