I think many music lovers have thought about using cloud storage as a place to store their favorite music. But there were problems with playing these tracks on different devices, and saving them offline if necessary. On cloud storage like OneDrive, Google Drive or Dropbox, you create a folder with your favorite music. Upload your favorite tracks there, and in the corresponding application on iOS or Android you get the opportunity to listen and download the required songs. It's very simple, and you don't have to pay every month to services like YouTube Music or Spotify. It also eliminates the need to purchase a NAS.

And if the free space on the cloud storage is enough for you, then you don’t need to pay anything at all.

Astiga

Astiga

This web service integrates with the cloud storages where you store your music collection. I'd like to note its pleasant and user-friendly interface.

The free version of Astiga includes basic features, but you can only sync to the cloud once every three days. To remove this limitation, you will have to purchase Premium.

CloudBeats

CloudBeats

CloudBeats is a cloud player with a nice and clear interface that has the minimum required functionality. Unfortunately, the features of the free version are limited to displaying only 5 songs in each folder and the lack of the ability to download songs for further offline listening. You can also listen to the radio.

For a relatively small fee, you will get additional goodies in the form of an equalizer, sound normalization, continuous playback, interaction with Chromecast and AirPlay, and completely disabling ads.

CloudPlayer

CloudPlayer

The CloudPlayer app is certainly good, but alas, it won't be possible to test it for free. After installing the app, you can log in to any of the presented cloud storages and get a list of all your songs, but you won’t be able to listen to the tracks.

To enable the playback and download functions of tracks, you will need to buy support for the necessary storage.

Conclusion

After a quick test of some applications, Astiga and CloudBeats are my favorites. Astiga has a huge plus is the presence of a Web version, if, for example, music needs to be launched from a PC. I want to say that CloudBeats is quite stable and there were no problems with the player during the work.

As a result, I stayed on the Astiga player, until I stumbled upon the Mega cloud storage, which has all the necessary functionality and, moreover, is free. Including free storage (20GB), saving files (music) offline, support for lossless music formats.

Write in the comments if you know other cool apps for listening to music from the cloud.
