[Android app] Kindle updated (4.6.0) with immersive mode, lockscreen audio controls and more

Amazon has released an updated version of Kindle for Android, which brings several new features and improvements including immersive mode for Android 4.4 KitKat devices. The Kindle for Android app is a useful tool for Amazon customers with access to over a million books through the Kindle Store.

You can download the update directly on your Android device through the Google Play Store or by using the following link:

Kindle for Android version 4.6.0 has the following new features and improvements:
  • Read books in immersive full-screen mode (Android OS 4.4+)
  • Tap the bottom right corner of a page to lock orientation
  • Control playback from the lock screen while audio is playing in the book
  • Choose system brightness in reader settings
  • Navigate table of contents by sub chapter
  • Pair with Bluetooth devices (Permission)
Its great to see that Amazon has worked on these improvements for their Kindle for Android app, especially by bringing features like orientation lock and improved brightness controls. Strangely these improvements have not yet been published on the Amazon Appstore version of the app, and we hope it should arrive soon.
