Rhapsody updated for Windows Phone 8, introduces offline playback and more
The official Rhapsody (www.rhapsody.com) app has been updated for Windows Phone 8. The music service enables consumers to access millions of music tracks within its expansive catalogue, but it's restricted to the US which leaves everyone else outside the exclusive club.
While majority of Windows Phone owners have access to both Xbox Music and Nokia Music (depending on location and device), it's always good to have more choice available. Back to Rhapsody. We're looking at a rather large update, so what's new in version 3?
- Offline playback of downloaded tracks, albums, and playlists
- Support for My Music, including the ability to add or remove tracks, albums, and artist—plus check out other people’s libraries.
- Add and remove stations from My Stations
- Add and remove playlists from My Playlists
- See your listening history
- Improvements to audio playback, album art, and search
Should you already own and use a Rhapsody account, this update will be more than welcomed. If not, there's a free trial that you can kick off from within the app. Do note that Nokia Music+ is beginning to roll out in select markets too.
You can download Rhapsody from the Windows Phone Store. Thanks, Jigar, for the tip!
