Almost a year after it rolled out to select Ford models, Amazon has finally secured itself another automotive partner for its cloud music service. The company today confirmed that its recently-updated Cloud Player iOS app can now connect to in-car dashboards in BMW and Mini Connected cars, letting owners access their cloud-hosted music with the help of steering wheel controls or touchscreen displays. It's a big coup for Amazon, as it fights Apple, Google and Nokia to integrate its mobile services into our in-car dashboards. There's no word on whether Amazon and BMW intend to extend support to Android devices, but we have contacted the company to find out.
