No, you cannot play music on the Kindle Paperwhite.
If you are like me, you probably like to listen to some background music while reading your books. This is something that you can do if you are reading on a computer or on your tablet. But, can you play music on a Kindle Paperwhite?
The Latest Kindle Paperwhite
The latest version of the Kindle Paperwhite is the 2018 edition. The major attraction for this new addition to the Kindle family is that it is waterproof. However, the short answer to the question above is no, you cannot play music on your Kindle Paperwhite. Neither can you watch movies.
A dedicated eBook reader
Thing is, the Kindle Paperwhite is a dedicated eBook reader. It was designed to do only one thing, and was made to do it really well. If you are looking to listen to music, browse the internet and watch movies, then the Kindle Paperwhite is not what you are looking for.
With this device, there is not much gimmickry. Backed by the amazing e-ink display, the Kindle gives you a reading experience that’s, more or less, at par with what you get when reading an actual book that’s printed on papers.
Can you listen to audio books on the Paperwhite?
Amazon has made audio books a big thing over the past few years. It’s not really surprising, therefore, that they have taken steps to ensure that the latest version of Kindle devices come with support for this format.
If you think, however, that the kindle is going to directly playback audio books, then you need to think again. The latest version of the Kindle comes with support for Bluetooth, which enables you to listen to audio books using headphones and speakers.
So, why do people love the Kindle?
The Kindle Paperwhite is, according to Amazon, one of the company’s best selling gadgets. So, why do people love it so much, despite the fact that it does nothing other than enable them to read books?
We have already alluded to the answer to this question.
The Kindle Paperwhite is loved because it allows people to do nothing other than read books. There are no gimmicks with this gadget. It gives you the ability to read books and that is that. If it’s something else that you are looking for, then you will probably be able to find it on your PC or on you tablet.
