Amazon is making some big moves with its Cloud Player music service. They recently improved the way the system works and now lets you scan your music in much the same way iTunes Music Match does. Now word comes that Sonos has added support for Amazon Cloud Player. As they explain,
YOUR MUSIC. EVERYWHERE. FROM THE CLOUD TO YOUR COUCH.
Import and securely store your entire music library in the cloud
Search, browse and play every song, album and playlist in every room with the Sonos Wireless HiFi System
Amazon MP3 purchases are automatically stored in Cloud Player, and you can import up to 250 songs for free
This may not sound like a big deal but it is. You see, support for Amazon Cloud Player means you no longer need to have an active computer or a NAS drive connected to your router in order to access your music collection. Instead, you just connect to your Amazon Cloud Player account and everything in it is available… in any room with a Sonos system. As they put it, “When we started designing our streaming music system 10 years ago we always envisioned a world of music in the cloud.” That day just arrived. You can learn more here.
