How to Transfer Music to Kindle Fire

The Kindle eBook provides a convenient mechanism to access books in digital format. The device also includes sound for audiobooks and for its text-to-speech utility. The “Experimental” section on the Kindle contains limited bonus options, such as playing music in the background. When the device is connected to the computer, the computer recognizes the Kindle as an external drive. That enables files to be transferred between the device and computer, enabling users to quickly manage libraries and collections. Similarly, music can be downloaded directly to the Kindle by copying the MP3 file from the computer to the Kindle Music folder.

I'm a music lover and my friends know that. I'm not a great musician or a singer but I look for all ways to enjoy music. Apple Music and Spotify are my favorite.
