Amazon.com is bringing its Cloud Player music service to vehicles equipped with Ford Sync AppLink, including new Mustangs, Fusions and F-150s. That means Amazon Cloud Player users with an Android phone can connect their app to Ford Sync, pulling up their entire music collection.
In other words, no more CDs cluttering the glove box.
“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. The company says that it now has 22 million tracks available via Cloud Player, just shy of Apple’s 26 million.
Amazon joins a number of other music services that are already available via Ford Sync, including Pandora, Slacker, MOG and Seattle-based Rhapsody.
