Without much fanfare, Amazon launched both a cloud storage service and streaming music service, beating both Google and Apple to the punch.The cloud drive service allows you to securely store up to 5GB of digital files, including documents, pictures, video or music, for free.

If you purchase an album from the Amazon MP3 store, you will receive 20GB of storage free of charge for one year from the date of your purchase. The 20GB free storage promotional offer is available until Dec. 31, 2011.

If you require additional storage, Amazon offers yearly plans for an additional $1 per gigabyte per year.

Amazon’s streaming music service allows you to listen to any music you have uploaded to your cloud drive from any web-connected computer with Amazon’s Cloud Player for web or on-the-go with Cloud Player for Android.

New music purchases from Amazon’s MP3 store can be stored directly to your Cloud Drive and do not count toward your allotted storage space. All your purchases are backed up by Amazon and are available to download to your computer at any time.

    yes, i’m rocking the amazon cloud music streamer app on my Xoom.
    It works very well, nice album covers etc.

    I recommend it, no joke. Free 5gb I uploaded 1,062 songs, and am left with about 550mb..

    it’s free so people should just upload 1 cd, and test drive it on their android…
