Here's how to directly stream music from your favorite cloud provider on Android
Despite the multitude of music players available off the Play Store, and even despite the near ubiquity of cloud storage services like Drive, Dropbox, and OneDrive, coming across an app that will directly stream your music library off the cloud is a rarity. That's not to say that such players do not exist -- they're just not necessarily part of the mainstream. And for a good reason -- a big portion of them have a very basic, non-eye-candy type UIs.

But if you happen to have a massive collection of music online, and do not want to pay for one of the various subscription-based services like Spotify, then you likely just want a player that can stream directly from the cloud, and covers the basics. Easy enough -- apps like CloudAmpz, ArmAmp, and CloudAround offer that. You also have the Beat cloud & music player (which we reviewed here), which offers a very attractive user interface and is chock-full of functions. Setting up either of these to work with your cloud storage provider isn't rocket science, though the process is a tad more obscured with some compared to others. If this happens to be something you're looking for, however, then you should probably flip through the slides that we've prepared for you below.
