Amazon Cloud Player Gets iTunes-Like Scan and Match

Amazon just updated its Cloud Player music storage service with an iTunes Match-like feature that allows Amazon to just scan a user’s music library and add matching songs to that user’s library without having to upload those songs one by one.

Like Apple’s service, it costs $25 per year. Apple’s service only makes sense if you have an iPhone and iPad, whereas Amazon’s service makes sense for everyone else with large music libraries that want access from any device and any location.

I really like Amazon’s Cloud Player, but stopped using it because of storage limitations. As someone with a huge music library, it just didn’t make sense to continue using it. Google’s music locker let me store practically all my music and Spotify is great when I’m at work. I’m tempted to give it another shot with this update.
