Amazon.com, Inc. (NASDAQ:AMZN) seems to be turning its focus more on the books. The company made its intentions known and much clearer now. The online retailer has added new share options. The objective is to woo as many users as possible. The development comes on the heels of changes in making payments to the authors based on the numbers of page views and read on an experimental basis.

Shareable On Devices

There might be some link between the payment of authors on the basis of new terms and the current addition of features. That is because Amazon.com, Inc. (NASDAQ:AMZN)’s Kindle is providing highlights, recommendations, and quotes shareable through WhatsApp, as well as, Facebook Inc (NASDAQ:FB) Messenger. That apart, it was shareable on Android devices too with immediate effect.

As a result, the number of readers might increase for several books. However, there might be some riders while purchasing the books like shareable and the related cost factor. The additional features of sharing buttons would be available to e-readers of Kindle from the later part of the current year. Also, such features will become available in other operating systems at the same time.

Free Book Preview

In a blog post, Amazon.com, Inc. (NASDAQ:AMZN) said that friends, who receive a share, will be able to read a free book preview instantly from the comforts of their smartphone or tablet or PC. There is no need either sign up or sign in. The company also clarified that there is also no need for installation any app.

The ability to share book content of Kindle has already been there on Facebook Inc (NASDAQ:FB) or Twitter Inc (NYSE:TWTR) or Goodreads. However, the focus of the latest feature is on getting the content of Amazon.com, Inc. (NASDAQ:AMZN)’s Kindle on different platforms where people are engaged on real-time conversations. That will enable the users to share with those available instantly.
