    Amazon Beats Google/Apple with Cloud Drive Media Streaming Services.


    In a a sort of surprise move, Amazon is debuting it's Cloud Drive Streaming Services. What this service will do is give Amazon customers the ability to stream/upload music (mp3 amd AAC files) to a PC, Mac, or Android Smart phone. Amazon customers will get 5 GB of storage for free and with the purchase of any mp3 download, an additional whopping 20 GB. Any Amazon mp3 download will not count against your storage amount.

    Surprisingly IOS is left out of the mix……

    The update to the android amazon mp3 app incorporates the new cloud feature into the app. Actually doesn't look too bad either.

    So if I got this right.

    All amazon customers get 5GB free and if you buy an album you get 20GB free?

    it looks like all you have to do is purchase one mp3, not an album to get the 20gb. not a bad deal.

    No you need to buy the album. But that's still cool, I just purchased Aerosmith's Pump for 5 bucks and got the increase to 20gb.

    So who's going to be the first to upload their illegal music so they can stream it?

    All my music is legal stuff dude. Sure some I bought from Russia, but that doesn't make it illegal. Does it?

    One thing I noticed. The 20 gb is a one year free trial. At the end of the year you will buy the space or go back to the 5 gb. Didn't say that in the article I found earlier.
