Here is the step-by-step guide.

Ember bookerly early a year ago Amazon discharged a firmware upgrade for the Fire tablets with a custom serif textual style, Bookerly, which was created solely for Amazon’s utilization on its Kindle stage. Presently Amazon is going to discharge a sans-serif textual style, and you can get an early look.
At the point when the Kindle Oasis begins delivering one week from now, it will incorporate another textual style called Ember. Created by textual style foundry Dalton Maag, Ember is a custom textual style grew only for Amazon. It’s as of now begun appearing in late redesigns for the Kindle tablets and in addition in early hands on recordings of the Kindle Oasis, and now you can download it and attempt it yourself. A companion was sufficiently thoughtful to catch a duplicate of the textual style family. However, it is not recorded as an alternative in either of Fire tablets or Kindles (in spite of the fact based on the information that Amazon is as of now utilizing it as a part of the menus on the Kindle).
Today Amazon released a new font style called “Ember Bold“, which is the bold version of Ember font. I haven’t get the font file yet, will update this post once I get the font file.
