Sad news for Kindle fans! Amazon has blocked all Android users from purchasing Kindle e-books from the official Kindle app. The change has already been rolled out! As of June 1, 2022, Android users will no longer be able to purchase Kindle eBooks. This applies not only to the Amazon Kindle app, but also to music and some other apps.

Even Amazon confirmed in an email to customers while advising that these changes were being made to comply with updated Google Play Store policies, a report from Express has confirmed.
