Ubuntu has launched the new Ubuntu One Music Store. I've made a few purchases to see how it works and it is very simple and user friendly. It offers great live streaming from inside your Ubuntu One account as well as streaming from your smart phone. Its so easy to have your music anywhere, right at your finger tips.
You can now purchase all your favourite music from the Ubuntu One Music Store via the web or on your mobile. Watch as the tracks you buy are magically delivered straight to your Ubuntu One personal cloud in an instant. No clumsy downloading is needed, as soon as you complete the transactions your music will appear in your Ubuntu One music cloud folder ready for you to stream or automatically sync with your computer.
The Ubuntu One Music Store can be easily accessed via the music tab in the Ubuntu One web dash. From the music store home view you can browse new releases, top tracks and top albums, then add to your basket, checkout and you’re all set. The new store offers all the same functionality as the Ubuntu One music store in Rhythmbox, only has a new slicker navigation that makes discovering and buying the music you love even easier.
To celebrate the new store Ubuntu is running a special promotion. Everyone who makes any purchase from now until the end of October will automatically receive Ubuntu One Music Streaming free for 6 months. Music Streaming is normally $3.99 per month and includes 20GB of storage for all your files, photos and music. Plus you can stream music to your Android and iPhone and via the web, wherever you are free, for 6 months.
