Amazon has continued to roll out its Cloud Player application with the release of Amazon Cloud Player for Mac 2.0 (despite the version number, this is the first release on the Mac platform).
Amazon Cloud Player, also available for iOS and Android, allows Amazon users to access all music stored in its Cloud Player service. Cloud Player works in conjunction with the user’s Amazon account to give them online access to music they’ve previously purchased through Amazon, either as a MP3 or selected physical purchases where AutoRip is supported, which provides the user with digital copies of the physical CD or vinyl album in question.
Amazon Cloud Player for Mac works in identical fashion to the Windows build, in providing users with access to music stored in the cloud as well as supported local libraries (including iTunes and Windows Media Player) via a dedicated app as opposed to their web browser. One feature missing from the app is the ability to import locally stored songs into the user’s cloud account; instead, the option simply redirects the user to their web browser to select songs for uploading. As expected, Amazon has officially announced its online digital media locker, Amazon Cloud Drive, along with its streaming service, Amazon Cloud Player for Web and Amazon Cloud Player for Android. One advantage is that Amazon does not require users to actually purchase their digital content in order to store it online.
Streaming is done at the original bitrate of your files, which means - if you have the bandwidth - high-quality tracks should still sound the same, and you can buy additional storage from $20 per year (see gallery for details).
Customers automatically start with 5 GB of Cloud Drive storage to upload their digital music library, and those who purchase an Amazon MP3 album will be upgraded to 20 GB of Cloud Drive space. Amazon’s easy uploading process makes it simple for customers to save their music library to their Cloud Drive. Cloud Player for Android is now bundled into the new version of the Amazon MP3 App; it includes the full Amazon MP3 Store and the mobile version of Cloud Player. Customers never need to worry about losing their music collection to a hard drive crash again. Cloud Drive allows customers to upload and store all kinds of digital files; music, photos, videos and documents can be stored securely and are available via web browser on any computer.
Not long after launching its own app store, Amazon has now unveiled other three new products: Amazon Cloud Drive, Amazon Cloud Player for Web, and Amazon Cloud Player for Android.
Amazon Cloud Drive offers 5GB of storage space for free, and an additional 15GB for customers who buy an Amazon MP3 album. Amazon Cloud Player for Android is included in the latest version of the Amazon MP3 App – which can be downloaded via Android Market. You can find out more about Amazon Cloud Drive, Amazon Cloud Player for Web, and Amazon Cloud Player for Android in this press release, or here. Amazon Cloud Player for Android works in conjunction with the desktop Cloud Player software to let you sync music and playlists, but it has a handful of head-scratching limitations. Once I downloaded the Amazon MP3 app to a Samsung Epic 4G smartphone, I was presented with the option to either enter the Amazon MP3 Store to purchase music, or launch the Amazon Cloud Player. After downloading the Amazon MP3 app to a Samsung Epic 4G ($129, 4 stars) smartphone, I was presented with the option to either enter the Amazon MP3 Store to purchase music, or launch the Amazon Cloud Player upon firing up the app. I signed into Amazon Cloud Player for Android with my credentials, but didn't see the handful of tracks that I had uploaded to Amazon Cloud Drive earlier that the day.
I purchased Pete Yorn's "Life On A Chain" and was given the choice of saving the DRM-free track to the handset itself or saving it to Amazon Cloud Player. Amazon Cloud Player for Android is designed for music fans who want to listen to their libraries on the move with a tablet (but not an iPad) or smartphone (but not an iPhone) in tow. No matter how larger a capacity your Android’s overall storage has, if you are a die-hard music fan, you will probably never be able to contain the entire music collection on just a SD card.
If you are an Android user, you may download Amazon MP3 from the link given below or by scanning the provided QR code to stream or download music files from your cloud drive on your Android device. And that’s not all; you can upload all sorts of files to your cloud storage through the easy and efficient web interface of Amazon Cloud Drive that allows you to select and upload multiple files at a time. AddictiveTips is a tech blog focused on helping users find simple solutions to their everyday problems.
Amazon Cloud Player has been updated with a bunch of new features, including some hefty new licensing deals with Sony, EMI, Universal, and Warner to beef up their music selection for sale. Amazon MP3 purchases — including music that customers purchased in the past — are automatically saved to Cloud Player, which means that customers have a secure backup copy of the music they buy from Amazon, free of charge. Any customer with a Kindle Fire, Android device, iPhone, iPod touch, or any web browser —and soon, a Roku streaming player or Sonos home entertainment system — can play their music anywhere. Soon, Amazon Cloud users will be able to access their remote libraries through Sonos and Roku boxes too - a palatable option for real music junkies. You can get more information about signing up here, but us international folks are out of luck on this one, unfortunately.
This is pretty cool, as I have an iTunes gift card that I got for Christmas a long time ago that I've never used, because I refuse to use iTunes.
At the end of the 30-day free upgrade, if you have more than 250 imported songs in Cloud Player, you will not be able to play your previously imported music in Cloud Player ? but you can start fresh and re-import up to 250 songs. It seems like really this is directed more at iTunes users than those of us that ripped our own cds. While the rest of us have been eagerly awaiting the arrival of upcoming Google Music, Amazon has been sitting around twirling their mustache going Yes, yesssss. The entire thing is powered by Amazon Cloud Drive (seriously, how much more awesome can Amazon’s cloud offerings get?!), an online storage locker for files of all types.
Music from the cloudAs I write this, I’ve got the new Amazon MP3 Uploader running on my home machine, uploading 630 of my favorite tracks.
As mentioned, the Amazon Cloud Drive gives users 5GB of storage to start, but includes a full year of 20GB storage with your first Amazon MP3 album purchase. The player provides persistent play controls that follow you to any screen in the app allowing seamless playback as you browse.
If you’re interested, you can hit the market link and QR code above, check out our handful of screen captures below, or see the full Amazon press release below that.
Amazon’s easy uploading process makes it simple for customers to save their music library to their Cloud Drive. 2) The 20 GB upgrade is valid for an year after which it becomes a pay for feature (nothing to complain about really)! Congratulations to Amazon this only helps all of us and makes competition better between amazon and google.


If google follow this idiotic pattern of only letting the yanks play the people will start to de camp. The service accessibility is essentially due to licensing issues with labels and what have you. If your concerned about losing your phone and losing your music, then backup your SD card to your PC regularly.
Can someone explain to me why this service (or even Google’s service) trumphs any of the options I suggested?
Then you get the app on your device, login and you can play anything from your music collection, whether it’s 5gb, 20gb or 600gb lol.
Google still has a chance to one-up this service by offering a similar service in more countries.
I like it, but I wish it worked through Google voice commands, and had a lock screen commands as well, that would be great.
Le service Amazon Cloud Player est compatible avec PC, Mac, Kindle Fire, iPad, Android, iPhone, Roku, Samsung TV, Sonos et Ford.
It’s basically a music player with additional management capabilities -- users can build cloud playlists, download tracks to the computer for offline listening and browse for music through the Amazon store. However, if you buy your music from Amazon MP3, keeping it on Cloud Drive won't count against your overall limit.
Apple and Google are expected to launch similar services themselves, but Amazon at least gets its offer out of the gate first.
New Amazon MP3 purchases saved directly to Cloud Drive are stored for free and do not count against a customer’s storage quota. Files can be stored in AAC or MP3 formats and will be uploaded to Cloud Drive in the original bit rate. Cloud Player for Web currently supports Internet Explorer, Firefox, Safari for Mac, and Chrome. Customers can use the app to play music stored on their Cloud Drive and music stored locally on their device. Files are securely stored on Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3) and each file is uploaded to Cloud Drive in its original bit rate. In addition to the 5 GB of free storage, customers can purchase storage plans starting at $20 a year for 20 GB.
The service comes to the Android platform bundled within the Amazon MP3 app in the form of Amazon Cloud Player for Android. The app suggested that I log out of my Could Player for Android account, move back to the desktop, sign into the browser-based Amazon Cloud Player, return to the phone, and then log back in.
Next, I added songs to the playlist by clicking the bright green "+" icons that live to the right of each file, and then clicked "Done." Tapping "Edit" let me remove tracks from the playlist, or add new songs. I enjoyed the loud, crisp, uninterrupted music when I streamed David Byrne's "Like Humans Do," and other tunes, to my phone using the 4G and then the Wi-Fi radios. This browser-based music player lets you play songs (in AAC or MP3 format), create and manage playlists, and upload audio files. You can't upload audiobooks, ringtones, files larger than 100MB in size, or tracks recorded in FLAC, OGG, WAV, or any other types other than AAC and MP3.
Purchasing a MP3 album before the end of the year gives you a free year of 20GB cloud storage.
I saved it the Cloud Player, returned to the desktop Cloud Player, and was happy that it had quickly synced. Audiophiles should shy away as the service doesn't support lossless codecs, but if you're an Android user who isn't already tied into another system, you should give it the app a go, as it lets you effortlessly keep all of your tunes at hand without worrying about transferring the catalog from device to device.
Maybe you do not need to spend too heavily on a large capacity SD card, or worry about getting your device’s limited space consumed by just a handful of albums anyway, because of all the various online music streaming and storage services that are available these days. If you already have one, simply log in and launch Amazon Cloud Player to begin uploading, downloading and streaming music to and from your cloud drive.
The upload progress of each selected file can be monitored and managed by clicking on the see upload details on the global upload progress bar that appears. We review the best desktop, mobile and web apps and services out there, in addition to useful tips and guides for Windows, Mac, Linux, Android, iOS and Windows Phone.
Currently, Amazon Cloud offers 5 GB of free storage with plenty more available for $24.99 annually.
Unleashed a couple of hours ago, Amazon Cloud Player allows users to stream a library of 5GB (upgradeable to 20GB) of music to the web and Android devices, all for free.
The part that’s specifically relevant here though, are the music files- and Amazon Cloud Player can handle MP3 and AAC purchased from the Amazon store, from iTunes, or from your own computer.
It’s an Adobe Air application that scans iTunes and Windows Media Player for playlists and lets you manually browse folders to find music for upload. New Amazon MP3 purchases saved directly to Cloud Drive are stored for free and do not count against a customer’s storage quota. I was contracted to work on the Amazon MP3 v2.0 app rearchitecting the download architecture and adding cloud drive download support.
I do believe some EU support will come in the next 6 months or so, but I’m out of the loop now. I ask because you had Atmosphere on your player, I didn’t think people not from Minnesota listened to them. With my entire music collection on my NAS, QNAP Mobile lets me stream all 35gb of my music to my phone for no additional charge. I’ll save my 5GB T-Mobile pre-throttle bandwidth for cooler stuff like YouTube HQ and Pandora. Having to directly download music after purchase to one device and then connect a USB cable to shuffle MP3s around to other devices and a desktop box or whatever is kind of old school.
Together, these services enable customers to securely store music in the cloud and play it on any Android phone, Android tablet, Mac or PC, wherever they are. Customers can hand-pick particular songs, artists, albums or playlists to upload or simply upload their entire music library. Cloud Player for Web lets customers easily manage their music with download and streaming options.


Features include the ability to search and browse by artist, album or song, create playlists and download music from Cloud Drive. Customers can buy music anywhere and know that their MP3s are safely stored in Cloud Drive and accessible from any device.
The Android app (reviewed here) lets music lovers stream tunes, create playlists, and download uploaded tracks on their mobile devices. Once inside the Cloud Player, I was given the choice of listening to music that's "On-device" (as is, physically on the phone), or you can signing into "Cloud Drive Music." Once again, I selected the second option. Once inside the Cloud Player, I was given the choice of listening to music that's "On-device" (that is, stored on the phone itself), or signing into "Cloud Drive Music." Once again, I selected the second option. You can also download files by tapping the download icon—data transferred quickly over the phone's 4G connection.
The bottom-end sounds were a bit weak, but that was more of a speaker issue than a streaming issue as the bass was quite substantial when I streamed songs through the browser-based Amazon Cloud Player.
Unfortunately, you can't upload files directly into Cloud Player; you're required to download Amazon MP3 Uploader to accomplish that task, which automatically scans your hard drive and uploads files.
Talking of cloud services, Amazon has just recently launched its very own online streaming and storage service for the web and Android devices. Of course, any music you buy on Amazon doesn't count towards your storage limit, which is a nice touch.
You will get a 30-day free upgrade to Cloud Player Premium, including upgrade of matched music files to 256 Kbps audio. The upload’s only chugged through a couple of albums at this point but the process has been pretty painless so far.
Together, these services enable customers to securely store music in the cloudand play it on any Android phone, Android tablet, Mac or PC, wherever they are. Just thought I’d drop a comment mentioning the ability to filter by network connection.
If the cloud storage volume was larger than 32Gb, the largest micro SD cards, then there would be a point, but as it is, I would rather take those mp3s and put them on my SD card, saving data, battery, and effort.
Also the fact that for those who purchase music through the app (IE the only purpose it served before) can store these purchases for free not impacting the 5Gb Cloud Drive limit is great. As soon as I found out about the Amazon MP3 store I immediately started getting all my music from there, and now I’m looking forward to transferring all of my music to the Amazon Cloud Drive.
Customers can easily upload their music library to Amazon Cloud Drive and can save any new Amazon MP3 purchases directly to their Amazon Cloud Drive for free.
Customers don’t need to worry about regularly updating software on their computer to enjoy music, and Amazon MP3 customers can continue to use iTunes and Windows Media Player to add their music to their iPods and MP3 players.
Overall, Amazon Cloud Player for Android is an enjoyable, useful app (featuring 5GB of free Web storage) that's only limited by the impositions placed upon the user, particularly in regards to compatible file types.
My handful of songs appeared within seconds, and I could sort music based on artist, album, or song. Thankfully, Amazon includes a search field that returns results on the fly as you key in letters—a much-appreciated addition for those of us with deep song catalogs. I really appreciated the fact that music purchased from Amazon MP3 does not count against your storage. The Amazon Cloud Drive service allows you to upload music, videos and documents to your personal Cloud Drive and in conjunction with Amazon Cloud Player, lets you stream your music library on your computer via the web or on your Android device via Amazon MP3. A significant change starting today is that Amazon Cloud Player and Cloud Drive will be separate storage bins and have their own subscription fees.
The player lets you play the music in your Cloud Drive and on your device and the store lets you purchase songs directly into your Cloud Drive or right onto your device.
Customers don’t need to worry about regularly updating software on their computer to enjoy music, and Amazon MP3 customers can continue to use iTunes and Windows Media Player to add their music to their iPods and MP3 players.
Also any downloads setup when wi-fi only is selected will still queue if on 3G and such and when wi-fi is reconnected downloads will proceed. It lets you stream your ENTIRE music library, all you do, on your pc, is tell it where your music is located and it automatically indexes your music.
However the overall user experience hands down has improved with the Amazon MP3 app and irregardless if streaming or user based cloud storage is utilized the core feature of buying music from the Amazon MP3 app is way improved. It will be so awesome to be able to access my whole music library from anywhere without having to carry my Andriod and my iPod. Creating a playlist from the content within "On-device Music" let me assemble a playlist of music stored on the handset. Amazon has really gone out of its way encourage people to sample their music store and new service. New users receive 5 GB of free cloud storage, which can be upgraded to 20 GB for a year if you purchase an MP3 album from the Store before the 31st of December, 2011 or for an annual payment of $20. I also think that this release is a first line of hopefully more advancements that come from the app and the larger Cloud Drive service. On the upside, the Amazon Cloud Player imported three playlists that I had created in iTunes and synced them to Amazon Cloud Player for Android—very cool. Amazon is even streaming the music at the original bit rate, providing completely better playback quality than some other services I’ve tried in the past. Glad to be back working on my stuff and hope to see Amazon MP3 and the cloud services offered flourish. It was an evolutionary step that jumped the gap so to speak and I think the A2Z team in particular with Amazon MP3 will continue to improve the product much quicker now.. Not so much, but heading in a positive direction and breaking out of the old trajectory most definitely.
