Sony Launches Cloud Music Service For Android
Sony has just launched an awesome new Android application for its Qriocity-powered cloud music service. You can download it for free but the app requires that users subscribe to either the Basic or Premium plan, in order to gain access to over 7 million songs through the streaming cloud.
The basic plan lets users listen to personalized radio channels (similar to Pandora), as well as their own music collections while Premium subscribers get those features as well as a full on-demand access to the Music Unlimited catalog.
The Music Unlimited app will work with all Android devices, and will work in the United States, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Spain, The United Kingdom, Australia, and New Zealand. The 7 million songs come from major labels Universal Music Group, Warner Music Group, EMI Music and Sony Music Entertainment, so expect mainstream tunes, not the unique songs you’ll find on Pandora.
Sony will also be rolling out the cloud music service on all of its platforms, Bravia HDTVs, Home Theater systems, PS3, PSP, and Sony computers, so you won’t need a droid to stay plugged in. Let us know what you think about the service, and if you’ll give it a download.
