Using the Kindle Fire in Europe has just become easier, with the recent launch of Amazon Cloud Player in the UK, France and Germany. Available also for iOS, Android, and desktop computers, Amazon Cloud Player is Amazon’s answer to Google Music and iTunes Match, allowing storage of up to 250 songs in its free version. Users can also use the Amazon store to purchase and download tracks, which do not count in the 250 track limit.

Just like their American counterparts, users from the UK, Germany and France can now purchase music through the Amazon store, and use Amazon Cloud Player to store and listen to music. With Google Music still available only to US customers, Amazon has just become much more relevant for European users. If you’re using Amazon Cloud Player in France or Germany, you will also enjoy a translated version of the app.


As pointed out by The Next Web, Amazon UK is also offering 99p albums to celebrate the launch of the new Cloud Player. This offer may only be available in the UK, as other Amazon stores may feature different promotions. Find more details about this promotion here.

If you really like Amazon Cloud Player, you can upgrade to premium for $24.99 a year, and store up to 250,000 tracks in your account.

    For that matter, Kindle is not available here! Do they think that no one wants to read books in India?

      I feel your pain. It's not available where I live either. We need to order it in some roundabout way...

    Installed and using this, the best part is you can uload own music for a limit of 250 songs and can actually stream them anywhere. Before trying this, I used UbuntuOne as there is a offer running - which upgrades the account to 6 months cloud streaming ( when any song is bought for £0.99. But that does not include streaming our own uploaded files, but only include songs bought from ubuntu store. I uninstalled it and using this now :)
