Amazon Cloud Player Now Available In BMW And MINI Vehicles

(NASDAQ:AMZN)—Amazon.com, Inc. today announced the availability of Amazon Cloud Player for iOS in BMW Apps and MINI Connected-equipped vehicles from model year 2011 forward. Amazon Cloud Player customers using iPhone and iPod Touch devices can now conveniently access their music using the vehicle’s controller and screen. For more information, customers can visit amazon.com/cloudplayer/auto.

Customers will love the integration of Amazon Cloud Player for BMW Apps and MINI Connected vehicles because they will be able to:

  • Easily access their music playlists stored in Amazon Cloud Player with the convenience of using dashboard controls
  • Enjoy music in high-quality up to 256kbps audio
  • Free up local storage space on their phones by storing and accessing music in the cloud
  • Get rid of bulky CDs for easier music listening in the car

“We embrace in-car entertainment as an extension of our customers’ listening experiences. We want our customers to be able to enjoy their entire music library wherever they are—that includes being able to conveniently listen to and control their music while driving,” said Steve Boom, Vice President of Digital Music for Amazon. “That’s why we’re thrilled to bring Amazon Cloud Player to top automotive brands so customers can access their favorite songs, albums and playlists with the easy-to-use, in-vehicle controller and screen. This integration with the BMW Group further solidifies our commitment to providing our customers with music listening choices that fit their on-the-go lifestyles.”

The launch of Amazon Cloud Player in BMW and Mini Cooper follows the integration in Ford SYNC Applink-equipped vehicles earlier this year.
