Kindle Cloud Collection Management Launches on MYCD Page


Kindle Cloud Collection Management

Amazon has just rolled out a new feature that people have been requesting ever since Amazon first launched their Kindle cloud collections feature back in 2013.

If you login to the Manage Your Content and Devices page at Amazon, you’ll see a banner at the top of the page proclaiming the launch of Cloud Collection Management.

This new tool lets you created, edit, and share Kindle collections directly from the MYCD page using a web browser.

Up until now all collections had to be created and maintained from a Kindle device or app.

Being able to manage collections with a web browser makes the whole process much faster and easier to accomplish.

Currently the collection management system only extends to Kindle ebooks, not newspapers, magazines, personal documents or other content, but it wouldn’t be surprising if more content types get added later down the line.

With the launch of Prime Reading yesterday and this new cloud collection management tool today, it makes you wonder if Amazon is getting set to make a big splash and announce the release of some new devices. They just released an updated Fire HD 8 last month but they usually release something “new” each fall. A larger Kindle would be great, especially after no new Kindles were released last fall for the first time in several years, but that’s probably asking too much.

  1. I’m glad they added this feature. I was trying to organize my Kindle books into collections but it became more burdensome to do so on the device. It will be much easier to do and maintain now.

    I agree with you, a larger Kindle device would be welcomed. I enjoy reading on my Kindle but would really prefer a larger screen size.

  2. Maybe it’s a browser issue…but…I don’t see it.

  3. I don’t see the Collections option in Chrome.

  4. It’s not showing up in Chrome.

  5. Can confirm I see it in Firefox. And about damn time, too.

  6. It was showing on Chrome earlier but the option has disappeared for me now too. Amazon often rolls out things slowly when it comes to changing their website so it’s not surprising. It’ll probably return in a day or two when they get the bugs worked out.

  7. It’s work in Chrome however implementation is far from ideal.There are no “Reading progress” on the grid, some visual bugs e.g. after applying collections to selected books. But it is still more appropriate than managing books on the Kindle.
