Amazon has struck whilst the iron is hot by officially launching their own cloud player which is aptly named Amazon Cloud Player (simple, no?). This player has tons of advantages, especially if you already are a member on Amazon, as it is also free. This service is already live and ready to be used. Unfortunately, I don’t have an Amazon account, so I couldn’t check to see exactly what the procedure is, but it looks fairly simple as explained on Amazon’s website.

Now access your favourite music on the go

Now access your favourite music on the go

Here’s how they’ve explained it:

Step 1.  Add music to Cloud Drive
Purchase a song or album from the Amazon MP3 Store and click the Save to Amazon Cloud Drive button when your purchase is complete. Your purchase will be saved for free.

Step 2. Play your music in Cloud Player for Web
Click the Launch Amazon Cloud Player button to start listening to your purchase. Add more music from your library by clicking the Upload to Cloud Drive button from the Cloud Player screen. Start with 5 GB of free Cloud Drive storage. Upgrade to 20 GB with an MP3 album purchase (see details). Use Cloud Player to browse and search your library, create playlists, and download to your computer.

Step 3. Enjoy your music on the go with Cloud Player for Android
Install the Amazon MP3 for Android app to use Cloud Player on your Android device. Shop the full Amazon MP3 store, save your purchases to Cloud Drive, stream your Cloud Player library, and download to your device right from your Android phone or tablet.

So if you are an existing Amazon user, do try this out and let us know how it worked for you.
