    Step 1. Buy music and save it to Cloud Drive
    Purchase a song or album from the Amazon MP3 Store and click the Save to your Amazon Cloud Drive button when your purchase is complete. Your purchase will be stored for free and will not count against your storage quota.

    From the Cloud Player screen, click the Upload to your Cloud Drive button. All customers start with 5 GB of free Cloud Drive storage. Upgrade to 20 GB with an MP3 album purchase (see details).

    Step 4. Enjoy your music on the go with the Amazon MP3 app featuring Cloud Player
    Install the Amazon MP3 for Android app to use Cloud Player on your Android device. Shop the full Amazon MP3 store, save your purchases to Cloud Drive, stream your Cloud Player library, and download to your device right from your Android phone or tablet.
