When this will happen:

Send to Kindle will be rolling out on mid-April 2023 (previously mid-March) and expect to complete by mid-May 2023 (previously mid-April).

How this will affect your organization:

In 30 days, Send to Kindle will show up as your users get Office updates, this feature will be available to your users. Once Send to Kindle is available to all users, users will be able to utilize Send to Kindle for Microsoft Word (Win32, Web, Mac). This feature is on by default.

If you don’t want your users to have access to this, please go to the cloud policy link, find Send to Kindle policy and set it to disable. Once the policy is set to disable, when this feature ships, the policy will automatically be in place and users will not be able to have access to this feature.

What you need to do to prepare:

Review the above information and set the appropriate setting for your organization. In 30 days, Microsoft will honor whatever policy/setting is set.
