“We want customers to be able enjoy their entire music library wherever they
want, from whatever device they choose. And we know that cars and music go
hand-in-hand. That’s why we’re excited to bring Cloud Player to the car,” said
Steve Boom, Vice President of Digital Music for Amazon.

There are already millions of customers using Amazon Cloud Player to download,
manage and stream their music in the cloud and on Kindle Fire, Android
devices, iPhone, iPod Touch, Mac, PC, Sonos, Roku and Samsung TVs. Now with
the availability in Ford SYNC Applink-equipped cars, Amazon Cloud Player
continues to offer the broadest selection of playback solutions of any major
cloud music service.

The integration of Amazon Cloud Player and Ford vehicles is the latest in a
series of new digital music features that Amazon has launched in recent
months. Earlier this year, Amazon announced AutoRip, giving customers free MP3
versions of eligible CDs they purchase from Amazon, including past purchases
dating back to 1998 — automatically added to their Cloud Player libraries. In
December of last year, Amazon launched Cloud Player for Roku and Samsung,
following the August launch of Cloud Player on Sonos home entertainment
systems, and June launches of Cloud Player for iPhone and iPod touch. In July
of last year, Amazon added new scan and match technology that enables
customers to import music into Amazon Cloud Player by scanning their iTunes
and Windows Media Player libraries and matching eligible songs on their
computers to Amazon’s music catalog. The Amazon MP3 Store also recently
expanded its catalog to offer more than 22 million songs and everyday low
prices on best-selling albums, many starting at $5.
