Is there an e-ink device compatible with dropbox (or similar cloud service) to sync

Right now I have a Kindle Paperwhite (old), a Samsung tablet and the OnePlus 6 smartphone. For the latter 2 (android) devices, I use Moon+ Reader to read and it syncs with my Dropbox account, so I can read a book on one device and then continue reading where I left off in the other device automatically

Unfortunately, the Kindle doesn't do this, so it's annoying to read on the Kindle and then have to search the page where I left off when I use another device. Specially considering that between devices, the page counts are different.

So I would like to know if there's an e-ink reader that can do this, using a cloud service or anything that helps to keep different devices synced.

If you use the Kindle app on your phone and tablet it will keep the book synced on all three.

Pocketbook devices have it. And anything with at least Android 5 on it.

If you send the books you’ve bought elsewhere to Amazon’s Cloud, you’ll get cross-device syncing.

Unfortunately, it's unavailable in my country. Even from the international site.

Thanks!
I didn't know about the send 2 kindle amazon app.
It's now working, although I have to use the Kindle app to read, instead of my favourite Moon+ Reader. It also messes a little bit the formatation, as Amazon converts everything to DOC format. But it works, and that's what's important.

Edit: And I lose the integration with the Calibre Go app to access my whole library anywhere, but oh well...

Does your tablet or mobile phone have a microSD slot? If the ereader has it too, it's possible to load books onto the microSD card via Dropbox by sticking the card to the tablet or phone for the while.
