Best Buy Floats Cloud Music Service

Looking to edge in on the turf shared by Amazon, Google and Apple, Best Buy unveiled its own cloud music service, which lets users access their songs stored on remote storage through various devices.

Yahoo News reports Best Buy’s service, which will come in free and paid flavors, allows users to store songs offline, potentially saving on data charges that could be culled from having to stream all your tunes. Currently the service piggybacks off your iTunes library, not letting those without iTunes in to play.

Best Buy offers a tutorial on how to use the service in a blog post.

If you use cloud storage for music or data, which service is your favorite?
