Music (From the Cloud)

No, I am not talking about some psychedelic concept that the Beatles came up with in the 60’s, but instead a technology that allows you to stream your own music – from the cloud.

Before I get ahead of myself I wanted to explain what the cloud is and how it works. In it’s simplest form a cloud computing system is just a service that stores your data remotely instead of locally on your own computer. So in these examples your music is stored remotely, and accessed through an internet connected application. This saves you a bunch of space on your memory card for other things!

So try out the following 2 services. If you need an invite leave a comment and I’ll see what I can do!

Name: Google Music
Description: Official Android player for Music Beta by Google.

The Music application features a redesigned UI and now supports Music Beta by Google.

Music Beta is a new service from Google that gives you instant access to your personal music collection on the web and your compatible Android devices without the hassle of wires or syncing.

Available in the U.S. by invitation only and free for a limited time.
Request an invitation at music.google.com.

Not a Music Beta user? You can still use this player to listen to music on your Android device.

Name: Amazon MP3
Description: Introducing Amazon MP3 for Android with Cloud Player
The new Amazon MP3 app for Android, available for free in the Amazon Appstore and Android Market, includes the full Amazon MP3 store and the mobile version of Amazon Cloud Player. You can use the app to shop the Amazon MP3 store, access music stored in Amazon Cloud Drive, and music stored locally on your Android device. Shop for your favorite music by searching or browsing the Amazon MP3 store. Play, download, and manage your Cloud Drive music right from your device using Cloud Player.

What’s Cloud Player?
Cloud Player plays the music you save to Cloud Drive, Amazon’s secure online storage space for your music, photos, and other digital files. Save your music to Cloud Drive in two ways:

Shop the Amazon MP3 store and choose to “Save to your Amazon Cloud Drive” when prompted after order completion.
Using your PC or Mac, upload your music collection to Cloud Drive so you can access it on your Android device via Cloud Player.
Playing Your Music in Cloud Player
Simply open Cloud Player from the Amazon MP3 app for Android and stream your music collection from Cloud Drive. With the Amazon MP3 app for Android, you can also play music from your device’s built-in storage.

Note: When streaming over a mobile carrier data network, you should consider changing your application settings to stream only when connected to Wi-Fi unless you have an unlimited data plan with your carrier. If you have questions about your data plan, please contact your mobile carrier.

Spotify – Easy 5 Minute Invite

So Spotify has been released in the US. 
(as you may have seen their little welcome message from their site)

But the downside is that you have to sign up for an invite…  And you might notice the wording: “…as soon as we can.”

Well I signed up for an invite on day 1 and still hadn’t hear back from them.  Then I stumbled across a link from Coca-Cola that saved the day.  All you have to do is enter your email and they send you a free invite.  The whole process takes 2 or 3 minutes.  Then once you have signed up you just have to download the Android app.  
To get that invite click here.
