Canonical has has launched a new music streaming service for Ubuntu One users. The Ubuntu One service originally launched last year with cloud file storage capabilities and support for synchronizing the user’s e-mail address book, notes as well as music, which is purchased by the user from the music store.
The new music streaming service enables you to stream your music from your personal cloud to your mobile phone using the Ubuntu One Music Android app.
Currently free in beta, streaming will become a paid service later. You can apply to be a beta tester here.
Ubuntu One Music for Android has four basic functions.
1. Home – Manage settings like caching and the number of songs to preload.
2. Browse – Tap through all of your artists, albums, and songs.
3. Search – Search your music.
4. Current Song – Tap to display information about the song currently playing and control play functions.
