Amazon Drive (rebranded from Cloud Drive) is a web storage application from Amazon. Its storage space can be accessed from up to eight specific devices. The devices can be mobile devices, different computers, and different browsers on the same computer. The device limit can be reached if web browser cookies are not stored, or are deleted. The service is launched in major countries including U.S, Canada, European nations, Japan, Australia, Brazil and China with different plans.
Amazon first announced the service on March 29, 2011. Amazon Drive revised its tier-based storage plans to unlimited storage plans in U.S and Canada.
Originally bundled with Cloud Drive was the music streaming application called Cloud Player which allows users to play their music stored in the Cloud Drive from any computer or Android device with Internet access. It supports browsing music by song titles, albums, artists, genres (website only), and playlists.
The Unlimited Everything plan offers unlimited storage for photos, videos, documents, and files in other formats.
