Arriving a full twelve months since its debut in the USA, Amazon today announced that its Cloud Player service is now available for Sonos owners in the UK, France, Spain, Italy and Germany.

Sonos’ Wi-Fi-based streaming hardware has been available across the globe for some time, with a range of hardware solutions allowing your to stream music from PCs, Macs, home servers and cloud-based music services such as Spotify and TuneIn digital radio.

However, whilst US Sonos owners have been able to enjoy their Amazon cloud music collections on Sonos since last Summer, European streamers have been without a similar feature until today.

Amazon’s Cloud Player service allows you to upload and stream 250 tracks to your mobile and fixed tech devices for free with an annual subscription of £21.99 boosting the allowance to a mighty 250,000 tracks – far more than offered by competing services from Apple and Google. A new feature from Amazon, AutoRip automatically places digital copies of  physical CDs you buy from the company in your Cloud Player library.
