Amazon Launches Online Music Streaming Service

Simply upload your music to Amazon’s servers and play them via the web or via Android. The new service dubbed Cloud Player works with the current Cloud Drive service which allows users to store any data up to 5 GB for free.

Google and Apple are rumored to be working on their own cloud-based players, but with the launch of Cloud Player, Amazon is the first to market.

Cloud Player works extremely well with the Amazon MP3 store, but can also handle music from post-DRM iTunes as well as other unencrypted music sources.

Cloud Player does not blow your mind, but rather gets the job done simply. Hopefully, this is an early release with more features to come.
