Amazon Cloud Player has been updated with a host of improvements that should make use of the cloud-based music service even easier for those hosting their audio libraries on Amazon’s servers. Foremost for audiophiles is an upgrade to 256Kbps audio for files matched from Amazon’s current library. Importing the library on your PC will be easier and happen automatically, either pulling songs from Amazon’s catalog or uploading your own. Previous Amazon music purchases will be automatically added, and future purchases will be added immediately. Also new is the ability to edit track metadata or to import song information for files matched to Amazon’s library.
The update will go into effect service-wide, and also includes a few changes to the number of songs you can store using the service. Amazon is now letting customers store up to 250 songs free, with an allotment of up to 250,000 available as a part of a premium subscription at $24.99/year. If you have been using Cloud Player up to this point, any music stored before July 31st 2012 will not count against the new limits.
