Would you like to listen to your music library from anywhere? There are free online music storage sites that provide the facility to stream your music via most Web browsers. Music lockers as they are sometimes called are excellent for organizing and storing all your MP3s online so you can gain access to them wherever you are. The following free digital music sites offer different levels of services, but all have the capability to stream your music on demand.
1. Amazon Cloud Drive
Amazon’s Cloud Drive enables you to store your digital music on the Internet and listen to it using the Amazon Cloud Player application (any computer or Android device). As well as music, you can also store other digital media files such as videos and photos. Amazon initially give you 5GB of cloud storage for free. The good news is that if you purchase music from the Amazon MP3 service, it will be automatically stored in Amazon’s Cloud Drive but won’t count towards your storage limit.
