Amazon has released a new firmware update today for its Kindle ereaders. The update is available for download from the Amazon website and adds the following features to the Voyage, Paperwhite, and basic Kindle:
- Reading Progress Dots: We listened to feedback from our customers and brought reading progress dots back to your library. You can now see reading progress and relative book length for downloaded books in the library list view.
- More Ways to Share: Recommend books to friends from About This Book.
- Kindle Unlimited Recommendations: Try Kindle Unlimited for free and see recommended Kindle Unlimited titles after choosing your favorite genres.
- Save Wi-Fi Passwords to Your Amazon Account: Save your Wi-Fi passwords to your Amazon account for future convenience. We can configure your compatible devices so that you won't need to reenter your Wi-Fi passwords on each device.
I have installed the update, and I can also confirm that this update did not add the Voiceview feature to my 6th-gen Kindle Paperwhite.
Launched last month, that accessibility feature is still limited to the Oasis and latest generation Kindle Paperwhite (also the Kindle Voyage, but you'll have to manually install an extra update).
