The new services will be available only to US Amazon customers though, in which they can securely store music in the cloud and have it played on any Android-based smart phones, Android tablets, Mac, or PC – anytime, anywhere.
With Amazon Cloud Drive, customers can upload and store digital files including music, photos, videos, and other documents from their computer, starting with 5GB of free storage space; and an upgrade to 20GB of Cloud Drive storage is available once a purchase of any Amazon MP3 album is completed. Amazon also says new purchases of Amazon MP3 saved directly to the Cloud Drive will be stored for free, and won’t count on the given customer’s storage quota. Fair enough, huh.
The Amazon Cloud Player for Web is an application that will allow customers to listen to their music from their computers’ web browsers. Supported browsers include Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome, and Apple Safari. Cloud Player for Android on the other hand is a mobile version of the Cloud Player for Web, bundled in the new version of Amazon MP3 App. Cloud Player for Android can be used to play music stored both in the Cloud Drive or the ones stored locally on devices.
