USA: Amazon Cloud Player is made available in Ford Sync AppLink-equipped vehicles, so owners can wirelessly connect the Amazon MP3 app on their Android smartphone to the Sync connectivity system to access their music library in their car using voice commands or audio controls.
Ford AppLink-equipped vehicles include the 2013 Ford Fiesta, Mustang, Focus, E-Series, C-MAX Hybrid, Expedition, Fusion, F-150 and Super Duty models.
Amazon said the integration of its cloud player with Ford vehicles would help drivers get rid of CDs, wires and other ways they used to connect and listen to their music in the car. It also frees up local storage space on phones by storing and accessing music in the cloud.
Steve Boom, Vice President of Digital Music for Amazon, said: “We want customers to be able enjoy their entire music library wherever they want, from whatever device they choose. And we know that cars and music go hand in hand.”
