Amazon has launched its cloud based music player that lets anyone upload music to the company’s server and play it later via the web or Android devices.
Users need not sign up for the cloud player as a separate service. All they need to do is log on to the cloud music player with Amazon credentials.
The Amazon cloud music service is similar to other cloud based computing services where data is stored in an internet connected source which can be accessed by multiple devices such as smartphones and computers.
The launch of the Amazon cloud based music player comes both as a surprise and a shock. It’s a surprise for Amazon Cloud Storage users and a shock for those who were waiting for Google to launch the cloud based music playback service before anyone else does.
Amazon has also launched an application specifically for Android devices. With this, Android users will be able to browse their online playlists through an App and even play songs live from the cloud itself. However, sound quality could fluctuate depending on the internet connection.
Users will get 5 GB of free storage to save music files. They can also purchase more space.
Using Amazon music uploader it’s possible to save music from Windows Media Player or iTunes, as well as any other music files that are on the computer, on the cloud service.
Users can download the application from Amazon’s website or the Android Market.
