Post Kindle discontinuing MOBI support, implementing EPUB support

I just got this email from Amazon:

Quote:
Dear Kindle Customer,

Thank you for using the Send to Kindle service to send personal documents to your Kindle library. We wanted to let you know that starting August 2022, you’ll no longer be able to send MOBI (.mobi, .azw) files to your library. Any MOBI files already in your Kindle library will not be affected by this change.

MOBI is an older file format and won’t support the newest Kindle features for documents. Any existing MOBI files you want to read with our most up-to-date features for documents will need to be re-sent in a compatible file format.

Also, compatible formats now include EPUB (.epub), which you can send to your library using your Send to Kindle email address. We’ll also be adding EPUB support to the free Kindle app for iOS and Android devices and the Send to Kindle desktop app for PC and Mac.

If you have any questions, please visit our help page or contact our Customer Service team.
TL;DR: In August 2022, MOBI support will be discontinued. EPUBs are now supported for import, though it's not indicated if they'll be read as EPUB files, or converted to another format.

Epub will be converted.
They prevoiusly discontinued reflowable mobi uploads on KDP.

It doesn't affect books sold by Amazon if your Kindle only does Mobi.
