Amazon is today launching a standalone player for the PC that will let users natively play music they’ve purchased from or stored in Amazon.

Music stored by users on their Amazon accounts can already be streamed using the company’s cloud player on web browsers. The Cloud player allows users to stream music they’ve purchased from Amazon or uploaded to a cloud-based storage locker.

The new standalone app will bring the same functionality to the PC even without the use of a browser. Songs, albums, and playlist added to user’s account will be fully accessible from the app. Users can also configure the app to automatically download MP3s or transfer any new tracks in their library to the cloud.

But probably the biggest and most useful factor that the app brings into the plate is offline support, giving it the ability to store music even when not connected to the internet. At present the app is only available to Windows users but Amazon says that the app will soon have a version compatible with Macs.
