Canonical has launched a new Android app that lets Ubuntu One users stream music from the cloud to an Android device.
The Ubuntu One service lets you upload files from an Ubuntu Linux computer to the cloud for storage and streaming. You can also synchronize files with your desktop computer. A basic plan is availale for free, with up to 2GB of storage space, while $10 per month will get you 50GB of storage.
The new mobile app is designed to let you stream music files stored online to an Android phone. The app is currently in beta, and right now only MP3 files are supported.
As Download Squad points out, the Ubuntu One music experience is powered by 7digital, a company which already offers an Android app that works pretty much the same way as the Ubuntu One app — only it streams music from a 7digital account instead of the Ubuntu One service.
