Ubuntu offering 20GB cloud storage, 6 months music streaming for 70p

Canonical’s Ubuntu One service - which was launched almost one year ago - includes a rather interesting music streaming service that allows users to stream all the tracks they saved on the Ubuntu One personal cloud to all their devices including mobile ones, either via a browser or through an app.

And if you sign up now, you can get six months Music Streaming and 20GB storage for free when you buy only one track from the Music Store worth $0.99 (70p), courtesy of 7digital.

Should you want to extend that service afterwards, it will cost you $39.99 (£25). The music service, which was launched earlier this month, is compatible with Ubuntu, Windows and Android.

Note that if you want to keep music streaming and the 20GB, you will have to choose a package, otherwise, the account will be reverted to 5GB.

If you want to get stick to storage, then it will cost a flat fee of $29.99 (£18) per year for every 20GB slice which is a tad on the expensive side given that Google charges $30 (£18) for 25GB and $60 (£37) for 100GB via Google Drive.
