Amazon launches cloud music service

Online retailer Amazon has stolen a march on Apple and Google by launching a cloud music service for PC, Mac and Android devices.

Amazon Cloud Drive, Amazon Cloud Player for Web and Amazon Cloud Player for Android all went live this morning in the US, and will let people upload MP3 and AAC files to Amazon’s servers, to be streamed anywhere.

Users get 5GB of free storage, but if they buy an album from the Amazon MP3 digital music store, they’ll be upgraded to 20GB, with further chunks of 20GB storage costing $20 a year.
