Following the step of Google, Amazon and Apple, Best Buy recently launches its own cloud-based music service that will let customers store and stream music from the Internet to their PCs and mobile devices.
Unlike its competitors, Best Buy is taking a different route by granting 30-second access to music stored in the cloud when streamed to a mobile device via its free My Music Anywhere Lite plan. By contrast, Google and Amazon have no such limitations.
Best Buy offers two versions of the service, one for free and one for $3.99 a month. However, there is no clear indication on what the difference is between the two versions.
However, as of now, the service can only be used when connected to iTunes. users can not upload music through any other music player or even put files in the cloud through folders or directories, as they can with Amazon and Google’s services.
