(Best Syndication News) - New features were added to the Amazon Cloud Player software app. Amazon also has reached many licensing agreements with music companies for their Cloud Player. Amazon will soon be adding Roku and Sonus to the supported devices offering their service.

Amazon announced today that they have reached licensing agreements with Sony Music Entertainment, EMI Music, Universal Music Group, Warner Music Group, and over 150 independent distributors, aggregators, and music publishers for their Cloud Player service.

A new feature in the Amazon Cloud Player includes a history of MP3 purchases made with Amazon. Any Amazon MP3 purchases will automatically be saved to the Cloud Player at no extra cost to the customer.

Another new feature added to the Amazon Cloud Player is the ability to scan a person’s computer system for iTunes and Windows Media Player libraries. The matched songs, even ripped from CD songs and iTune purchases, will be made available instantly on the Cloud Player. The song files also will be upgraded at no cost to 256 Kbps audio. Additionally, customers who already sent their music to the Cloud player will also be upgraded to the higher quality standard.

The Amazon Cloud Player is supported for customers with a Kindle Fire, Android devices, Apple iPhones, Apple iPod touchs, or any web browser. Shortly, the Roku streaming player and the Sonos home entertainment system will also be compatible with the Amazon Cloud Player.

The Amazon Cloud Player is available at a free tier and as a paid Premium tier. The free tier will allow customers to store all the MP3 music they want that they have purchased from Amazon. Additionally, the free service will allow the customer to transfer 250 songs from their computer system to the Cloud Player.

The Cloud Player Premium tier will allow for up to 250,000 transferred songs. The storage will cost $24.99 per year. Any MP3 song purchased at Amazon would not count toward the 250 or 250,000 allowances.
