Ford and Amazon announced earlier this month that the [amazon_link id=”B004FRX0MY” target=”_blank” container=”” container_class=”” ]Amazon Cloud Player for Android[/amazon_link] now integrates with Ford SYNC AppLink. What’s this mean? Full access to your music library in the cloud, without wires, controllable by your car and with your voice.
Ford SYNC-compatible vehicles equipped with AppLink include the recent model year C-MAX, Focus, Fusion, Fiesta, and Mustang, plus the F-150 and Super Duty trucks. In all of these vehicles, you can now enjoy any song or playlist from your Amazon MP3 cloud library, whether it’s on your Android phone or in the cloud. And with Amazon now adding MP3 copies of many of your CD purchases from the past 15 years with AutoRip, this has the potential to make a large music library readily available in your vehicle—all from the cloud.
Like all good SYNC features, you can control the Cloud Player from your Ford’s head unit, from steering wheel buttons, and with voice commands. You can get the Amazon MP3 Player app from [amazon_link id=”B004FRX0MY” target=”_blank” container=”” container_class=”” ]Amazon[/amazon_link] or from Google Play.
Amazon isn’t talking yet about similar integration plans for other vehicles or mobile OS platforms.
