Rhapsody Brings Music Discovery to Life With Latest Android App
Visually-Rich Playback and Suggestions Based on Time and Day Make
Finding the Music You Love Faster and More Convenient
SEATTLE, WA -- (Marketwire) -- 11/06/12 -- Subscription music
services have never been sexier than Rhapsody's new Android app. But
don't let the stunning visual interface fool you -- this is an app
that combines beauty and brains by surfacing personalized
recommendations and suggests music based on time and day -- a first
among on-demand music services.
"It's never been easier to discover the right song at the right
moment," said Paul Springer, senior vice president, worldwide product
and design, Rhapsody. "Our customers want their music within arms
reach and the ability to download or play instantly with the push of
a button. Our latest Android app delivers that experience and more."
Rhapsody also announced the Beta launch of Rhapsody Replay. Replay is
a new concierge feature that will appear on the home screen after
learning your listening patterns. It provides personalized and easy
access to familiar music based on the time and day.
"Our customers told us that in addition to discovering new music,
they enjoy listening to familiar favorites," observed Springer. "We
also know that they listen to different music throughout the day --
what they listen to on their motivating morning drive or run is not
what they listen to while making dinner or relaxing in the evening.
So, we built that intelligence into the app -- which gets smarter the
more you listen."
In addition to Replay, the latest update includes a new home screen
that showcases new releases as well as playlists and content curated
by Rhapsody's editorial staff. Fresh updates have been made to the
player, which now includes full-screen album art and swipe-to-skip
functionality, as well as quicker access to shuffle and repeat. Under
the hood is the fastest ever version of the Rhapsody Android
experience, with easier access to radio and improved offline playback
and downloads. The app is available and free to download in all major
Android app stores with more information including screen grabs found
