Use Amazon Cloud Player for Android Video Transcript
-Hi. I'm Sharon Vaknin for cnet.com here to show you how to use Amazon's Cloud Player with your android device. Sorry iphone users, you're going to have to sit this one out. Amazon didn't release an app for you. First, set up an account on amazon.com and upload music to your account. It's pretty straightforward. You can upload almost any mp3 or AAC files so music you've downloaded from iTunes, Amazon, or other stores will work. You can also use music ripped from CDs no matter where you got them. Amazon gives you the first 5 gigabytes of storage free. If you wanna get more storage, through the end of the year, you can purchase an album from Amazon and they'll bump you up to a total of 20 gigabytes for free per year after your purchase. Now, you're ready to stream your music library to your android device. Download the free Amazon mp3 app from the android market. Once it's there, go to Cloud Drive Music and sign in with your Amazon account. Now, you're ready to play music you've uploaded to your Cloud. Just remember that your device must be connected to your network or WiFi to stream music. If you know you'll be off the grid, but still want to access your music, the applets you download tracks directly on to your device. Hit the green arrow next to any playlist, artist, or album to download multiple titles or long press any song to download a single track. The player also lets you create and modify new playlists and access music stored locally on your device. You can also use this app to purchase new music from the Amazon mp3 store and save it to your Cloud drive for safekeeping. Since Amazon wants you to purchase music from them, purchases made from the store won't be counted against your storage capacity. For now, Amazon Cloud Player is only available for android devices, Macs and Windows computers. Expect to see more developments around Cloud storage though. Apple and Google should be jumping on the bandwagon anytime now. For cnet.com, I'm Sharon Vaknin and I'll see you on the interweb.
