Canonical announces Ubuntu One music streaming service

Filed under

Ubuntu

Canonical is preparing to augment its Ubuntu One cloud synchronization service with a new music streaming feature that will enable users to stream songs to their mobile phone from their Ubuntu One cloud storage account. During the initial stages of beta testing, the streaming feature will offer compatibility with the MP3 file format and Android-based devices. Canonical plans to extend support to the iPhone and possibly other products at a later date.

I did a hands-on test of the Android application, which is still at the beta stage of development. It has a simple but functional user interface that provided convenient access to my remote music library. After a short period of loading information about my music collection, the app was able to display a list of albums. The album art doesn't show up right away, but it does eventually load.
