Amazon Launches Cloud Player Android App for Music Streaming from the Cloud
So, the Amazon Cloud Player works like this. You purchase a song from the Amazon MP3 App. Then download it either to your phone or save to the Amazon Cloud Drive, which is a web storage service that was launched together with the Amazon Cloud Player. From either your Android phone or from the Cloud Drive, you can then listen to your MP3 songs via wireless streaming. Of course, if you’re Android phone is running low on storage, saving the MP3 songs in the Cloud Drive is a much better option. But then, to listen to music, your Android must be connected online.
To enjoy the Amazon Cloud Player, you must have a Cloud Drive account. This you can get from Amazon from Amazon – free for 5GB of files, free for 20GB if you purchase an MP3 album and additional storage plans starting from $20 a year.
Sounds pretty exciting, right? Actually it is. The fact that Apple has not done this service yet, and Google is rumored to be preparing the same music streaming service – it’s interesting to note that Amazon beat them both, unexpectedly. But then of course, that will still depend on how users will appreciate this service.
To use the Amazon Cloud Player, you need to get the Amazon MP3 which is a free download from the Android Market.
