In an email this morning, Amazon announced that the Comixology and Kindle apps will be merging as of December 4, 2023.
Your library of comics, manga, graphic novels, and novels will all be available in one app now, with Amazon deciding to merge their comic and novel apps into one.
“Starting today, any books previously purchased on Comixology will automatically be visible in your library on the Kindle app. The upgraded Kindle app experience is available now; however, you may continue reading your books in the Comixology app until December 4, 2023.”
Amazon also shared some of the updates and work they’ve been doing to make the Kindle app a much better place to read comics & manga going forward:
- Your library in the Kindle app now groups your issues, volumes, and omnibuses from the same series together.
- The Kindle app now allows you to hide and unhide specific comics, graphic novels, and manga in your library. Titles you’ve already set to hide via the Comixology app will automatically be hidden in the Kindle app.
- With your complete library of books now conveniently in one place, you can select ‘Comics & Manga’ from the in-app filter menu to quickly find just your comics, graphic novels, and manga titles.
- Members of Kindle Unlimited or Amazon Prime can borrow comics, graphic novels, and manga titles directly in the app. Tap the ‘Home’ button from the bottom nav, select the ‘Explore’ button in the top left directly under the search bar, then select the ‘Comics, Manga, and Graphic Novels’ button listed under the ‘More categories’ label.
