Amazon quietly released a Cloud Player app for PCs as an extension of its music streaming service.

While PC users could already use the player through the Web, the new app, noted by Mashable on Monday, also allows for offline storage. We've contacted Amazon for more details and will update if we hear back.

The app automatically syncs your music library with any files on your computer that you haven't added to the cloud yet and exports your Amazon MP3s to iTunes and the Windows Media player.

You also can upload an unlimited number of Amazon songs, plus 250 songs purchased outside of Amazon, to a cloud locker and then stream them wirelessly.

The streaming Cloud Player service was already available on iOS, Android, and a few other devices. Amazon recently made the Cloud Player for iOS available in Ford Sync AppLink-equipped cars.
