Can I Have Multiple Devices On Amazon Kindle?
Imagine that you bought an eBook on your Kindle and your brother liked it very much. He asks you to let him read it also for some time but you are so indulged in your reading that you do not want to spare your Kindle for even a second.
Now, what do you do? Is there a solution to this problem?
Let me tell you that there is. And it is pretty easy.
You simply would have to add your brother’s Kindle to your Kindle account and there you go! He will also be able to read the same eBook on his Kindle device.
You have the option of adding multiple Kindles to your Kindle account. It would be very useful as you and your family or friends can share reading books, magazines, comics and other stuff that is of their interest without having to make multiple purchases.
However, some books have a number limit of accessing the same book on multiple Kindle devices at the same time. This number is not definite, it varies from book to book.
Another interesting thing to notice here is that you also have the option of adding eBooks that you have bought from platforms other than Amazon to your Kindle. These sources have no limitations except that your Kindle needs to have enough storage space.
But if you are adding those sources on multiple Kindle accounts, then you will have to add them to each Kindle individually.
The ‘Manage Your Devices’ page contains information about all your Kindle devices, in fact, it lists them and that list also includes the Kindle apps that you have installed on your PCs, tablets, or smartphones.
How Many Devices Can I Add To My Amazon Kindle?
Amazon takes utmost care that it benefits its customers in every possible way. They not only have a pleasant customer experience but also are facilitated in multiple ways. Amazon enables its Kindle users to access downloads and purchases on more than one Kindle device at a time.
But there is a limit on the number of copies of books and other sources that can be shared and opened on multiple Kindle devices.
Amazon allows its users to link only five Kindle devices to the main Kindle device. This means that there may be six Kindle devices that can be linked to each other. This is also the case for other devices that have Kindle apps.
All purchases and downloads are made through the owner’s account. When we say that a Kindle device is registered to an owner’s account it means that the owner’s account is the owner of that device.
However, it should be noted that this kind of arrangement requires a lot of trusts. The Kindle users that have been linked to the main device can easily make purchases and the owner will have to pay for them.
Therefore, it should be ensured that only users that can be trusted are linked to the main Kindle device.
Can I Have Multiple Devices On Amazon Account?
Amazon facilitates its customers by enabling them to register more than one device on their Amazon accounts.
The user can easily use the Amazon Prime account on multiple devices. But, there is a limitation when streaming on devices simultaneously. The user can stream content on only three devices at one time.
If the user desires for streaming on four devices at a time, he/she would have to pay $6.99/ month.
In case you want to find out the number of devices that are registered in your Amazon account, you can easily log in to your account and find out the details of the devices in the Content and Devices option.
You will not only be able to find out the devices that you have registered but you can also know the dates when the devices were registered. You can also find out the details of the product that each device has.
You also have the option to deregister a device at any time. In case you think that you will no longer need a certain device to make purchases or make any in-app purchases, you can easily deregister it. To do so you simply have to select ‘deregister’ under the Devices tab, and you will have that device removed.
How Many Devices Can I Add To My Amazon Account?
Amazon enables the user to stream any content on a maximum of three devices but you need to be watching three different titles. You cannot watch the same title on more than two videos simultaneously.
When streaming on Amazon Prime, there is no need of having separate accounts. You can easily watch the same movies or shows on different devices at the same time, but in case there are too many users streaming the content at the same time, you will get a notification message.
You would need to manage your streaming when you get the notification.
