Best Buy Launches Its Own Music Cloud

Best Buy Launches Its Own Music Cloud

The consumer electronics retailer tries to compete with Amazon's Cloud Player, Google Music and Apple's iCloud.

Not wanting to be outdone by the big names launching cloud music services, Best Buy is putting itself forward as another contender. It’s Music Cloud lets you listen on the move, take your playlists with you, and store songs locally for offline listening.

Unfortunately, although it claims to provide easy access to your digital music collection, there are a few catches. Currently, it’s only capable of taking your songs from iTunes, it won’t upload them from Windows Media Player or a folder on your computer. There are apps for Android, Blackberry and Apple to manage and play your music. However, the Premium service ($3.99 per month) is not available on Apple devices and with the Lite version, you are only allowed to listen to the first 30 seconds of each song.
