If you are a music lover but feel that your smartphone’s internal memory is too low to fulfill your passion for music, you need a music player that can stream directly from the cloud. A cloud music player app allows you to upload your music collection to the cloud online and then access your music files directly from within the player. This allows you to build a massive music collection without having to worry about storage. Here is a list of the top 10 cloud music player apps for Android phones and tablets:

3. MediaMonkey:

A brilliant music player (and organizer) that allows you to synchronize your music collection across all devices.

With it, you can not only sort music according to artist and album, but you can also sort it by composer and genre as well! Moreover, you can sync your music across your computer and Android smartphone easily over the Wi-Fi with a single click (once you have gone through the complex process of setting it up).

8. Neutron Music Player:

A very powerful music player that is not quite as popular as it should be. According to the developers, it features a 32 bit and 64 bit rendering engine that will drastically improve music output.

The user interface on the music player is a bit sophisticated but easy to use once you get the hold of it. With the Premium version, you can also stream music via the Internet or stream music directly from your smartphone to other devices. However, most people say that the Premium version is a tad too expensive at $5.99, but those who have it never complain!
