Offers first offline playback support
Amazon has released a native version of Cloud Player for Windows. Previously, Cloud Player was only accessible through mobile and web apps. Amazon says it also working on native Mac software, but no release date is available.
The Windows app allows for offline playback, and incorporates a new "instant search" feature which also permits playing music straight from search results. The app download is free, and like other versions of Cloud Player provides cloud access to any music a person has bought through Amazon, as well as up to 250 uploaded songs. Offline playback can include anything a person has in their iTunes or Windows Media Player libraries; alternately, the app can be used to export Amazon tracks in the opposite direction.
