Amazon Cloud Player Will Upgrade All the Horrible Quality MP3s You Throw at It

Illustration for article titled Amazon Cloud Player Will Upgrade All the Horrible Quality MP3s You Throw at It

Amazon's Cloud Player has always been able to take your crappy old MP3s and stream them to any device with access to the S3 cloud, but now Amazon has an added perk for users: they'll upgrade any low bitrate files you upload to 256kbps quality.

Additionally, Amazon Cloud Player can scan your music library and automatically upload tracks, deliver past and future purchases directly to the cloud, and will let you manually edit metadata. Oh, and if you own a Roku or Sonos, Cloud Player will soon be available on those devices. [Amazon via Engadget]

I've been loving this service, but the app still has a few kinks. Downloading to the device seems to take a bit longer then it should, and for some reason some of the songs I download to the device aren't available if not connected to the internet (like on an airplane).

I wish the songs that were downloaded to the device on iphone would be added to the iphone library instead of in app only, but I have a feeling that's more an issue with apple then amazon.
