Amazon.co.uk today announced the launch of Amazon AutoRip, a new service that gives customers free MP3 versions of CDs and vinyl music they purchase from Amazon.

310362-amazon-autorip

When customers purchase AutoRip CDs and vinyl the MP3 versions are automatically added to their Cloud Player libraries where they are available, free of charge, for immediate playback or download – no more waiting for the CD to arrive. Additionally, customers who have purchased AutoRip albums at any time since Amazon.co.uk first opened its Music Store in 1999 will find MP3 versions of those albums in their Cloud Player libraries – also automatically and for free. More than 350,000 albums, including titles from every major record label, are available for AutoRip, and more titles are added all the time – customers can just look for the AutoRip logo.

“What would you say if you bought CDs, vinyl or even cassettes from a company 14 years ago, and then 14 years later that company licensed the rights from the record companies to give you the MP3 versions of those albums… and then to top it off, did that for you automatically and for free?” said Jeff Bezos, Amazon.com Founder and CEO. “Well, starting today, it’s available to all of our Amazon.co.uk customers – past, present, and future – at no cost. We love these opportunities to do something extra for our customers.”

AutoRip features include:

· Free digital copies: Amazon customers who purchase AutoRip CDs and vinyl get free MP3 versions of the albums delivered directly to their Cloud Player libraries – automatically, immediately, and at no cost – no more hassle with ripping CDs and finding a way to get them onto your favourite devices

· CD, vinyl and cassette purchases dating back to 1999: MP3 versions of AutoRip CDs, vinyl and cassettes that customers have purchased since the launch of Amazon.co.uk’s music store in 1999 will also be delivered to their Cloud Player libraries for free

· Enjoy everywhere: Music can be played instantly from any Kindle Fire HD, Kindle Fire, Android phone or tablet, iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch and any web browser, giving customers the freedom to enjoy music from more devices than any other major cloud locker music service

· Free storage and backup: All AutoRip MP3s are stored for free in customers’ Cloud Player libraries and do not count against Cloud Player storage limits. Customers can buy music and know that it is safely stored in Cloud Player and accessible from any compatible device

· High-quality audio: AutoRip music is provided in high-quality 256 Kbps MP3 audio

AutoRip is available for recent, bestselling and classic albums including 21 by Adele, Our Version of Events by Emeli Sandé, Babel by Mumford & Sons, Only By The Night by Kings of Leon, Pet Sounds by The Beach Boys, London Calling by The Clash and Thriller by Michael Jackson.

The Amazon MP3 Store catalogue offers more than 26 million songs and everyday low prices on best-selling albums, many starting at £4.99.

Amazon said it has added “tens of millions of dollars” in Amazon Coins to the accounts of eligible Kindle Fire customers, who will be sent an email notification.

Customers will receive a discount if they buy the currency – which was teased by Amazon back in February – in bulk.

The retailer hopes Coins will attract app developers to its platform and increase revenues in that area.

“We will continue to add more ways to earn and spend Coins on a wider range of content and activities – today is Day One for Coins,” Mike George, VP of games and apps at Amazon, said in a statement.

To celebrate the weekend, because the weekend is great, SEGA are having a sale on three best-selling apps!

Rumour has it that Amazon is working on a smartphone equipped with 3D technology, according to a report.

The Wall Street Journal claims that the device is one of two handsets the online retailer is developing, citing “people familiar with the company’s plans”.

The 3D phone allegedly features hologram-esque imagery that can be viewed without glasses and technology that lets users navigate through content using just their eyes.

Amazon is rumoured to have been developing a Kindle-branded smartphone for some time, but such a device remains unannounced at present.

The company recently appointed former Windows Phone executive Charlie Kindel to work on a mystery project believed to be a Kindle smartphone, and is said to have acquired Siri rival Evi to support the venture.

Amazon is also said to be launching a set-top box that allows users to stream movie and TV content to their living room.
