Amazon has just quietly launched one of its biggest products yet, called Amazon Cloud Player. It provides users with cloud storage of their music, which will then play on any computer or Android device.

To enable the service, go to

to get started. You'll have to enable it on your Amazon account and then update your Amazon Mp3 app, which will enable streaming of all music located on your new Amazon storage.

Amazon is currently providing users with 5GB of free storage with the ability to buy additional storage:

  • 20GB - $20/year
  • 50GB - $50/year
  • 100GB - $100/year
  • 200GB - $200/year
  • 500GB - $500/year
  • 1000GB - $1000/year
This is a big one folks. It's a developing story, so stay tuned for any more details. If you don't have the Amazon MP3 app, look for the link after the break. [
