The top 100 kindle books of all time, based on annual bestseller lists.

Top 100 best Kindle books of all time detailed list

The best Kindle book of all time is Stieg Larsson’s The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo , followed by Unbroken (Laura Hillenbrand) and Mockingjay (Suzanne Collins).

Recently, we released an extensive set of charts comparing the best Kindle books published since November 2007.

As the main overview is accompanied by detailed rankings that list best authors and categories, as well as top Kindle Unlimited books, you can easily get lost in the flood of information.

A single-minded list that ranks Top 100 Kindle books is the most important outcome of our analysis of Amazon’s annual charts of top Kindle bestsellers. That’s why it deserves a separate post.

Each book in the annual bestseller list gets points. The #1 book gets 100 points; the last one receives 1 point. If a book is present on more than one annual list, its points are added. You’ll find more details about how we counted the books, in the main overview of the best Kindle books of all time .

As you see, this ranking is favoring books that managed to keep high sales for as long as possible and as high as possible.

Before the list, here are a few most interesting facts:

  • The best Kindle book of all time is The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo , Stieg Larsson’s first book from the Millennium series.
  • Top 10 includes all three parts of the bestselling YA dystopian series by Suzanne Collins, the Hunger Games .
  • The best nonfiction book on the list is Unbroken by Laura Hillenbrand, which takes the second place.
  • 15 titles in the Top 100 are available via Kindle Unlimited ebook subscription.

Data for annual Top 100 lists for 2007-2016 was gathered between July 25 and August 28, 2017. Data for the 2017 list was collected on November 19, 2017.

Details you can compare in the ranking are:

  • # – a position of the book in Top 100,
  • Points – a total number of points collected,
  • Title (series) – a title of the book and a name of the series it belongs to,
  • Author – an author or authors of the book,
  • Ratg – rating,
  • Revs – number of reviews,
  • Cat  – a primary category the book is ranked in.

Below the chart, you will find detailed facts and figures about the top 10 Kindle books of all time.

Big magic: creative living beyond fear.

by ELIZABETH GILBERT

Once upon a time, there was a man named Jack Gilbert, who was not related to me – unfortunately for me. 

Jack Gilbert was a great poet, but if you’ve never heard of him, don’t worry about it. It’s not your fault. He never much cared about being known. But I knew about him, and I loved him dearly from a respectful distance, so let me tell you about him.

Jack Gilbert was born in Pittsburgh in 1925 and grew up in the midst of that city’s smoke, noise, and industry. He worked in factories and steel mills as a young man, but was called from an early age to write poetry. He answered the call without hesitation. He became a poet the way other men become monks: as a devotional practice, as an act of love, and as a lifelong commitment to the search for grace and transcendence. I think this is probably a very good way to become a poet. Or to become anything, really, that calls to your heart and brings you to life.

25 of The Best Kindle Unlimited Books to Read in 2023

Rey Rowland

A daydreamer and a bit of a lost cause, Rey loves stories. Whether they're book shaped or you can see them on a screen, a story always hides in the corners of her mind. She's working on a few stories of her own, always accompanied by her trusty cat.

View All posts by Rey Rowland

So you got a Kindle Unlimited subscription in 2023 but you’re a bit overwhelmed and don’t know where to even begin reading. I get it, the catalog is HUGE. I recently got the subscription myself, and I have spent countless hours pouring through it to pick my next read. The good news is, now you don’t have to! In this list, I’ll give you some of the best Kindle Unlimited books 2023 has to offer. That way you can pick one and kick-start your reading year with some seriously amazing stories.

A few things before I get into it though. There are technically over a million titles you can access through Kindle Unlimited. So of course this list is by no means complete or comprehensive. These are just some of the best Kindle Unlimited books you can read this 2023. I also decided not to include audiobooks or magazines. If you don’t see them on this list, that doesn’t mean there aren’t great picks! On that note, this time around I also picked books that are more popular or well-known from a wide variety of genres. Whether you like nonfiction, graphic novels, fantasy, suspense, or romance — anyone can find their next great read!

But without further ado, let’s get into 25 of the best Kindle Unlimited books for this 2023.

Best Kindle Unlimited Books: 2023 Nonfiction

Token Black Girl: A Memoir by Danielle Prescod book cover

Token Black Girl: A Memoir by Danielle Prescod

Let’s kick things off with this incredible memoir about pop culture, media, the fashion and beauty industries — and the pressure to be perfect. In Token Black Girl , Danielle Prescod explores these topics (and many more) as she tells the story of how she grew up as a Black woman in a primarily white community that basically made her entire identity invisible. Prescod also dives into her experiences in the beauty industry, where she overlooked several toxic ideals in order to climb up the ladder. After decades of doing this, Prescod couldn’t bury her emotions anymore. So she decided to look inwards and confront what motivated her to stay unhappy for so long.

Book cover of i'll be gone in the dark by michelle mcnamara

I’ll Be Gone in the Dark by Michelle McNamara

Did you know that this incredibly popular true crime memoir is actually available on Kindle Unlimited? I’ll Be Gone in the Dark is the story of how Michelle McNamara became obsessed with the Golden State Killer. She investigated his horrible crimes decades after they were committed, and she was able to piece together a lot of evidence that helped advance the investigation. Sadly, she died before he was unmasked. So her husband Patton Oswalt and journalist Billy Jensen helped complete McNamara’s true crime masterpiece. 

In the Dream House cover image

In the Dream House by Carmen Maria Machado

This might be one of my favorite memoirs, and I’m so excited more people get to read it now that it’s on Kindle Unlimited! In the Dream House is written in short, essay-like vignettes, and each of them follows a classic narrative trope. Machado uses this format to talk about her experience in an abusive same-sex relationship — as well as the expectations of Queer relationships in general. It all comes together thanks to Machado’s beautiful and lyrical writing style, which makes this read unforgettable.

Best Kindle Unlimited Books 2023: Comics and Graphic Novels

Sandman Vol. 1: Preludes & Nocturnes - 30th Anniversary Edition by Neil Gaiman cover

Sandman Vol. 1: Preludes & Nocturnes by Neil Gaiman

Maybe you liked Netflix’s Sandman adaptation and you’re thinking about reading the graphic novels. If so you’re in luck! The first nine volumes are available on Kindle Unlimited — kicking things off with the 30th anniversary edition of Vol. 1 Preludes & Nocturnes . The story begins when an occultist tries and fails to capture Death. Instead, he traps her younger sibling Dream (a.k.a. Morpheus). Dream is locked away for 70 years before he manages to escape. Now, he has to embark on a quest to retrieve his lost objects of power.

Gender Queer by Maia Kobabe book cover

Gender Queer by Maia Kobabe

Moving on to a beautiful graphic memoir about gender identity, Gender Queer is Maia Kobabe’s exploration of eir self-identity ( and one of the most challenged books in 2022 , because people are the worst). From eir childhood, to adolescent crushes, eir relationships and the trauma of pap smears. Kobabe dives deep into eir life story as a Queer person with this memoir. Add to that eir own drawings, and this graphic novel packs quite the emotional punch!

cover image of American Born Chinese by Gene Luen Yang

American Born Chinese by Gene Luen Yang

This YA graphic novel weaves together three stories steeped in Chinese culture and mythology. The first storyline follows a kid named Jin Wang. All he wants is to fit in at school, but as the only Chinese American student he gets bullied constantly. Then there’s another student named Chin-Kee, who constantly ruins his cousin Danny’s life every time he visits. The third story follows none other than the Monkey King, one of the best-known Chinese legends. As separate as these stories may seem, they all come together in a way you won’t expect!

cover image of They Called Us Enemy by George Takei, Justin Elsinger, Steven Scott, illustrated by Harmony Becker

They Called Us Enemy by George Takei

Next comes another graphic memoir that is absolutely worth reading! They Called Us Enemy talks about George Takei’s time in an American concentration camp for Japanese people during WWII. He was only four when every person of Japanese descent in the west coast was sent to these “relocation camps.” His parents were just trying to get by on a daily basis, and it was especially hard for him to understand what was going on as a child. The graphic memoir jumps around from that period of time to the present. Where it also discusses the repercussions of growing up behind barbed wire. 

Best Kindle Unlimited Books 2023: Historical Fiction

cover go The Love Songs of W.E.B. Du Bois by Honoree Fanonne Jeffers

The Love Songs of W.E.B. Du Bois by Honorée Fanonne Jeffers

The Night Tiger will transport you to 1930s Malaysia. The story follows two people with a common goal: to return a severed finger to its owner.

Then there’s Ji Lin, who moonlights as a dancehall girl to help pay her mother’s debts. That’s how she came upon a horrific gift: a severed finger.

We love Kindles here at WIRED. They're simple, reliable, and perfect at what they do—in one palm-sized device, you can bring thousands of books with you to the park or mountain, and they typically get a month of battery life per charge. You can subscribe to get unlimited books from Amazon or get free books from your local library (more on those below). But what's the best Kindle? Our guide will help you decode the differences.

Be sure to check our many other buying guides , including the Best E-Readers , Best Fire Tablets , and Best Alexa Speakers .

Updated October 2023: We've added Strapsicle Kindle holders and a sleeve from the Quirky Cup Collective. We've also updated prices and links throughout.

Special offer for Gear readers: Get a 1-year subscription to WIRED for $5 ($25 off) . This includes unlimited access to WIRED. com and our print magazine (if you'd like). Subscriptions help fund the work we do every day.

Best for Most

We think most people will like the Paperwhites the best. The step-up, waterproof e-reader went from one to three models, and they rival the more expensive Oasis. We tried the Signature Edition ( 8/10, WIRED Recommends ), but all three have bigger, 6.8-inch screens with smaller bezels. The screens are brighter overall at their max and have adjustable warm lighting, but only the Signature can auto-adjust that brightness to your surroundings—we think that should be standard across all models. Its faster page-turn rate means there's no delay while you read.

The Signature has 32 gigabytes of storage and the Standard has 8 gigs. That's a big difference, but you can still read and store a lot of books with 8 gigabytes (around 5,000). If you mostly listen to audiobooks, you may want to go for the Signature, since those tend to take up more room. Still, if you want to save some cash, just clean out your backlog; you can remove a book from your device without deleting it entirely from your Amazon account. The 2021 Paperwhites all have USB-C charging, but the Signature supports wireless charging.

The Smallest and Least Expensive

The difference between Kindle models is not as stark anymore, so you'll probably be happy with whatever price point you prefer. This base Kindle was finally updated in 2022 and is the cheapest one at $100. It's the smallest of the lot at 6.2 inches tall and 4.3 inches wide, with a 6-inch screen (the same screen size as the new Kindle Kids). If you find tablets too cumbersome to hold with one hand, consider this one.

The price increased by $10 from the last version, but it doubled the storage from 8 gigabytes to 16, and the screen is a 300-pixel-per-inch (PPI) resolution versus the old one's 197 PPI. It gets the same USB-C port for charging as the Paperwhite models, and it charges quickly. However, it's not waterproof, and it doesn't get warm lighting or auto-adjusting light.

Frivolously Awesome

There's no practical reason to buy a $270 ebook reader, but the Oasis has a sleek aluminum design with a ridge on one edge and physical buttons to turn the pages. These make it ideal for one-handed reading. The light-up display also looks a little more natural and automatically adjusts the brightness.

Many of the Oasis' features now show up in the Paperwhites, like adjustable warm lighting, water resistance, and a faster processor. At 7 inches, the touchscreen is only slightly bigger too. After years of use, reviews editor Adrienne So has noticed that the battery on her Oasis now only lasts several days. It's also been unavailable on and off. We think it's due for an update.

Best for Kids

The 2021 Paperwhites include a Kids Edition, which brings a bigger and sleeker screen, more lighting options, and IPX8 water resistance for the first time over the original Kindle Kids Edition. The rest of the features are pretty much the same as the new Kindle Paperwhite, except you'll get a year's subscription to Amazon Kids+ , a kid-friendly content library with parental controls. (You can access the same platform across other Amazon devices, like Fire Tablets or Echo speakers .) It also comes with a case and a two-year no-questions-asked replacement guarantee. If your kid smashes it just once, you get your money back. If you're going to get your kid an entertainment device, an ebook reader that doesn't have access to social media is a safer choice. There is a web browser, but it's restricted by default (you can completely disable it too). There are 8- and 16-gigabyte storage options

★ A cheaper alternative with more storage: The newest base Kindle Kids ($120) is cheaper than the 8-gig Paperwhite Kids, but for 16 gigabytes (that's also double what the original Kids Edition was). But this one isn't waterproof if you think that will be a problem with your kiddos, and there's no adjustable warm lighting.

For Note-Taking

Thanks to the included pen, you can now write on your Kindle ( 8/10, WIRED Recommends )! There's no lag, and the outcome looks very similar to your handwriting. It's already pricey at $340, but you can spend an additional $30 for the premium pen that includes an eraser on the opposite end. You can't write directly on most books, which is frustrating—you have to instead use sticky notes. There are now some options available with that functionality, but it's mostly crosswords and guided journals.

The enormous 10.2-inch screen is ideal for taking notes, marking up PDFs, or doodling, and there are numerous paper formats you can choose, like college-ruled or dotted. The screen size does make reading easy too, especially if you need to increase the font size, but it takes away some of its portability if you prefer to keep an e-reader in your pocket or small purse. There are 16-, 32-, and 64-gigabyte options. Since it was released, Amazon has updated it with additional brush types, a convert-to-text in export tool, and better page navigation and subfolders. Weirdly, it's not waterproof like the other pricier Kindles. We've tried other E Ink tablets for writing , but this is probably the best (and cheapest) option.

Strapsicle Kindle Case on a Kindle

For Easy Holding

When I'm a couple of hours into a reading session and my hands start to cramp, I fantasize about setting up one of those hands-free tablet holders so I can lie in bed with it directly in front of my face. I'm not quite there yet, but I do love these silicone Strapsicles. Attach one or both to the back of your Kindle—one is angled for your right hand and the other for your left—and slide your hand in. Your hands won't cramp, you won't accidentally hit the screen and flip pages, and the reader won't slip out of your hands. People also use Popsockets for this reason, if you prefer that. I love my phone Popsocket, but after a particularly long scrolling session, my fingers start to ache. These straps eliminate that altogether.

There are three sizes meant to hold different types of e-readers. You should see exactly which models they work with on the Amazon pages, as well as on this page on the Strapsicle website . If you use a case, these might not work, but the brand sells its own thin clear option for $13.

Do You Need a Cover?

Kindles are, thankfully, not as fragile as our pricey smartphones, but you may still want to add a cover to protect the screen if you're frequently toting it around in a bag. These are meant mostly to protect the screen and add some protection from minor bumps, but they're not padded for serious drops. If you get a Kids Edition, those come with a case already.

The fabric covers for the Base Kindle ($30) , Paperwhite ($35) , and Oasis ($40) open like a book and come in some variation of black, blue, pink, or green. All but the Oasis one is made from post-consumer recycled fabric.

If you've upgraded to the Scribe ($60) , that case flips up and over like a notepad, and you can position it into a stand too. There's also a slot for the pen if you don't want it to be attached magnetically all the time. This one is also made with recycled materials.

Sun and Moon Kindle EReader Sleeve

Or Get This Pretty Sleeve

When this mystical Kindle sleeve graced my TikTok For You Page—it was the Sun and Moon version —I knew I needed it. It's beautiful and will protect your device when you aren't using it, so you can throw it in your bag without worry. The outside is velvet and the inside satin, with some padding in between and a zip closure. On the back is a small zip pocket. There are several pretty designs, including a luna moth and an hourglass.

On each page, you'll see which devices fit. This size is good for the Kindle Paperwhites and Oasis, plus a bunch of Kobos and the iPad Mini. But if you use a bulky case, consult the measurements. There are also separate, and larger, book and iPad sleeves .

The Quirky Cup Collective is a small business out of Australia, and there's an informational page on tracking times and pricing. It may default to AUD, but the company will charge you accurately for the country you're in (I haven't seen it as anything but US dollars).

Person's hands holding Amazon Kindle DX

Do You Have an Older Kindle Model?

Have an old Kindle lying around—or are looking at a used one for sale—and aren’t sure which one it is? This Amazon page includes photos, specs, and release years for the entire lineup. Once you know which one you have, you may be able to trade it in for credit toward a newer model.

Most old models probably still work, just with fewer bells and whistles. We think it's best to avoid Kindles with keyboards or any other physical buttons—page-turn buttons on the latest Oasis are OK.

Some older Kindles lost the ability to browse, purchase, or borrow new books directly from the device. However, you'll still be able to do so on Amazon.com on your computer or phone and have it sent to your Kindle, which is a better experience anyway. According to the company, the models affected are the Kindle 2nd Generation (International), Kindle DX International, Kindle DX Graphite, Kindle Keyboard, Kindle 4th Generation, and Kindle 5th Generation.

Amazon Kindle Unlimited logo

Start Reading

If you buy every single book you want to read at Kindle, it can add up! But there are ways to save some money while reading as much as your heart desires.

You may want to subscribe to Kindle Unlimited for $12 a month . You can only choose from the Unlimited catalog, but there are millions of titles there, including audiobooks and magazines. Start out with the 30-day free trial. Since I got into romance thanks to #BookTok, this has been incredibly rewarding and I typically hate paying a membership for anything.

If you already pay for a Prime account, you're eligible for some free books through Prime Reading . There are not as many options as with Kindle Unlimited, and in a lot of cases you'll see both Unlimited and Prime options lumped together, so you'll have to look closely to find the free ones. But it's still something, and there are even some magazines included.

But if you don't want another monthly subscription and don't want to continue giving your money to Amazon, take advantage of ebooks available with your library card . Browsing a digital catalog is not as magical as spending an afternoon looking over every shelf in a library, but such is the ebook life (no one says you can't read both!). We have a detailed how-to on this that you should check out, but here are some of the takeaways:

  • Get a library card for your local branch
  • Check your branch's website for its ebook offerings. Many use the website OverDrive .
  • Download directly to your Kindle library. They'll automatically be removed when they're due back.

If you know someone else with a Kindle, you can lend books between your libraries, just as you would with a physical copy. Follow these instructions from Amazon to do so, and keep in mind not all books can be loaned.

What Else Can a Kindle Do?

Kindles have helpful features that you may want to take advantage of it. Long-press a word or phrase to see its definition , highlight it, or take notes . You can also search the entire book for that particular word or phrase or translate it to or from other languages.

Word Wise shows short definitions in small text within the lines. Unfortunately, it's not available for all books, but when it is, you can turn it on or off and choose more and fewer hints. Clicking the short definition opens a longer one from Word Wise and the New Oxford American Dictionary or Oxford Dictionary of English (you can switch between the two), plus translations, and a Wikipedia page, if applicable.

While reading, tap the top of the screen and click “Aa” to change font size or type —there's even a font called OpenDyslexic that helps make reading easier for people with dyslexia. You can control margin sizes and line spacing from that menu too.

When a Kindle is connected to a Bluetooth speaker or headphones, VoiceView Screen Reader (accessed through Settings > Accessibility ) allows you to use gestures to navigate your device and reads aloud what you've pressed. It will also read a book aloud, though it doesn't sound nearly as nice as an audiobook does.

Amazon owns Goodreads , so it syncs seamlessly to Kindles (press the three-dot menu > Goodreads ). If you have a Goodreads account, you can review the Kindle books you've read or browse your bookshelf and recommendations. Long-pressing a word or phrase, in addition to what is mentioned above, opens up an option to share quotes directly to Goodreads.

There's a web browser too if you're connected to the internet ( three-dot menu > Web Browser ). It's not the best, so I'd reserve it for emergency searches.

2. The Handmaid's Tale by Margaret Atwood

This classic, dystopian tour de force was first published in 1986, and you're probably aware that it's been adapted into a hit TV series. Atwood creates a world that takes the bible at its word, forcing women who can bear children to become handmaids to fascist commanders and their weird, cruel wives. This is a chilling, all-too-real examination of puritanical patriarchy—and one of the best Kindle Unlimited books if you're in the mood for a modern classic you haven't read yet.

3. The Murmur of Bees by Sofía Segovia

Amazon Kindle Books Unlimited includes this recent popular novel translated from Spanish and published in 2019. Set in Mexico during the 1918 influenza pandemic and the Mexican Revolution, The Murmur of Bees tells the story of an abandoned baby, found beneath a bridge surrounded by bees, who grows up with the ability to see the future. Readers love the compelling story and the evocative prose in this story of love and faith by a  Latinx author  who will become one of your new favorites.

4. Parable of the Sower by Octavia E. Butler

This stunning apocalyptic science fiction novel , first published in 1993, is set in the now-not-so-distant year 2024. Society is in disarray due to climate change and social breakdown, and life is bleak and dangerous—even more so for one teenage girl named Lauren after a fire destroys her family's compound. The story is told through Lauren's journal entries, in which she chronicles the perils of a disintegrating world from beyond the walls of her gated community and as she joins with other refugees to find a safe haven.

5. Tender Is the Flesh  by Agustina Bazterrica

In this harrowing novel, translated from Spanish and first published in 2017, you’ll enter a dystopian future after the “Transition,” where society has switched from eating animals to eating humans. Horrifying yet completely riveting, this popular book exposes capitalism’s violence through unsparing details of humans bred and slaughtered for food—and what happens when one man starts to question this new normal. For the latest books everyone's talking about, try joining one of these  online book clubs .

6. The Humans by Matt Haig

If you're a fan of sci-fi, you'll love this novel about an alien sent to Earth to destroy a recent discovery that humans should not have access to. The alien, who has taken on the human form of the professor who made the discovery, finds himself unable to carry out his duties and instead immerses himself in a new life as the professor. Despite initially being repulsed by people, the alien learns that he kind of likes them as well. Readers love the witty writing that captures the human spirit with easy-to-read wonder. If you love books that make you laugh, these funny books should be on your must-read list.

7. Once Upon a River by Diane Setterfield

Kindle Unlimited includes Diane Setterfield's evocative fairy tale –like novel about a young girl found dead who miraculously returns to life. The local townspeople marvel at the mystery of her identity—and three different families make a claim that she belongs to them. Readers rave about the sumptuous prose and whimsical magic in this 2018 page-turner.

Amazon’s new Echo Hub is an Alexa-enabled smart home control panel, designed to make it easy to organize and control the smart home devices in your home—like security cameras, alarm systems, lights, locks, plugs, blinds, and thermostats. Echo Hub is a thin, 8-inch touch-enabled display with a customizable smart home dashboard that makes it simple to group and manage your compatible smart devices, enable a Ring security system, start a Routine, or view live camera feeds.

An image of a Fire TV screen.

Echo Hub can be mounted on a wall or placed on a counter with a stand accessory. It includes a built-in smart home hub with support for Zigbee, Sidewalk, Thread, Bluetooth, and Matter, making it compatible with a wide variety of connected devices, without the need for a separate smart home bridge. Echo Hub can also connect to the internet wirelessly, or via ethernet with a compatible Power-over-Ethernet (PoE) adapter.

Here are eight ways to get the most out of your new smart home control panel:

WiFi, Bluetooth, Zigbee, Sidewalk, Thread, and Matter devices sync seamlessly with the built-in smart home hub, allowing you to mix and match devices to meet your unique needs, regardless of the brand or manufacturer. Echo Hub can also control select devices, such as lights, switches, and plugs, even if your internet is down.

Display the devices you use most on Echo Hub’s Home dashboard, so you can quickly turn on/off lights, pull up camera feeds, set your security system, play music, or start Routines . During set up, Echo Hub automatically populates the dashboard with the devices connected to your Alexa account, and organizes them based on your Alexa app configurations. You can also add, remove, or rearrange widgets by long-pressing and adjusting placements.

Echo Hub makes it easy to view live camera feeds by tapping into the widget or asking Alexa—and with Multiview, you can view up to four live camera streams at once. You can also view multiple Ring camera still-frame Snapshots at once from your camera widget, or the camera’s shortcut icon on the bottom row.

Use Echo Hub to arm and disarm your Ring alarm with a tap. You can also use a recommended Routine from the Ring app or create a unique Routine in your Alexa app that locks the doors, arms the security system, and turns off the lights when you say, “Alexa, I’m leaving.”

See all of your Routines on one screen from the left-side panel and initiate them with a tap, or by asking Alexa—like one that simultaneously locks the doors, dims the lights, and adjusts the thermostat. When you create new Routines in the Alexa app, they automatically appear in your Routines panel.

Connect Echo Hub to your preferred speakers and control the audio throughout your home. You can even control the volume for individual speakers in a multi-room music group, directly from the device dashboard. Plus, in the future, you'll also be able to see how many active media streams are playing throughout your home, right from the Home screen.

With Adaptive Content, Echo Hub uses infrared technology to detect when you are nearby, naturally transitioning from your customized home screen to the smart home dashboard when you approach. To personalize your device, you can choose to display curated collections—including new video backgrounds—or personal photos from your Amazon Photos account. Prime members get unlimited full-resolution photo storage with Amazon Photos .

Echo Hub is built with multiple layers of privacy protection. From the mic off button to the ability to delete your voice recordings, you have transparency and control over your Alexa experience. Learn more about Echo and Alexa privacy features .
