Amazon Updates Cloud Drive with Unlimited Storage Space for Music


Today, Amazon announced a few goodies for users of their popular Cloud Drive and Cloud Player services. First, they have enhanced their Cloud Drive with unlimited storage space for music bought through their Amazon MP3 music store. That means you could download 20GB’s worth of music (from Amazon) and it wont ever count against the storage space on your Cloud Drive. Pretty neat.

Oh, and if you’re currently on a paid Cloud Drive plan (even if you upgraded through a promo) and already have a ton of MP3’s you — uhhhhh — didn’t purchase from the Amazon MP3 store, you will also have unlimited storage of that music for a limited time. Just how limited that time will be wasn’t mentioned.

Now for their Cloud Player. Amazon also announced that their Cloud Player for Web is finally available for the iPad and has been optimized for the Safari browser. Simply click that link in the previous sentence to check it out for yourself.

Any of our readers currently taking advantage of Amazon’s Cloud Drive? Would love to get some feedback on how you’ve been enjoying it.

  1. I like the lockscreen controls & the fact that I can buy music. However I like Google Music’s way of caching songs much better. Rather than having a cloud & a local section, Google Music has it all in one place. I just wish Google Music had a store. And lockscreen controlls…
    Can’t have it all, I guess…

    1. nah.. local selection is a good option. Thanks though.

      1. Being able to see your local music is fine, but you can do that in Google Music, too. Here’s the difference: If you go to the cloud section in Amazon MP3 and play a song that you’ve already downloaded, it will still stream it, rather than play the local file. Lame.
        Also, I like just being able to see all my music, not caring if it’s local or not.

  2. I use it as my main cloud storage and music app. Does what I need. I love the free song of the day too. I find music I never knew I liked.

  3. It would be nice if I could add music I’ve already gotten from Amazon to the cloud service rather than having to upload it all.

  4. I like it. As a method of transferring music between MAC and Android alone, it is pretty handy!
