The Internet has long been used to distribute and obtain music. The Web makes it possible for music lovers everywhere to get copies of the songs and albums of their favorite artists through downloading, which is convenient for music enthusiasts who don’t have access to record stores. And, thanks to cloud computing, enjoying music through the Internet can be even more convenient.
Music-related applications of cloud computing are now widely available for many Web users. Many cloud-based music service providers allow users to store their libraries and collections of songs in the cloud, enabling access to the data wherever the user is. If you want to enjoy this convenience, consider signing up for these services.
Amazon Cloud Player
Launched in April 2011, Amazon Cloud Player provided features that were considered as innovative during the service’s release. Cloud Player is a great service to sign up for if you’re already using Amazon Cloud Drive for storing the songs and albums you’ve downloaded. Through Cloud Player, you’ll be able to stream your music files to compatible devices or browsers. As a bonus, Amazon also automatically saves your mp3 purchases to your Cloud Drive.
Rdio is one of the best cloud-based service providers for music junkies who like to regularly ‘discover’ new songs and albums. The service provider features a 10 million-strong song library that can be streamed online or cached for your listening pleasure offline. The service doesn’t impose limits on playbacks, and will even coordinate songs in its library with those on your iTunes library and import your music libraries to the cloud.
If you actually use the Web to gain some publicity for your original songs, then SoundCloud is the perfect cloud-based music service provider for you. Once you sign up, the service allows you to upload songs and short descriptions of these songs. You’ll also be given some storage space that allows other SoundCloud users to add songs to your account.
