Rhapsody and Napster Add Chromecast Support, Available Today on Android

Chromecast users out there, here’s another reason to get excited over your $35 purchase. After seeing the likes of Pandora and Rdio add support for the HDMI dongle, it was inevitable that the torrent of new additions wasn’t about to stop soon. Two other popular music services today, Rhapsody and Napster, have updated their Android apps to allow for using the streaming stick, and we can’t call that anything but a win.

To access the new feature on either app, all you have to do is hit the Cast icon and tap your Chromecast. Your app will then connect to your dongle and send your content over. It’s as simple as that.

The updates are rolling out today for Android users, and for once, iOS users get to wait (they’ll be grabbing the new goodies later this month).

    Rhapsody has only been playing one song for me. Then it stops. Can’t get it to play a whole playlist through Chromecast.
    Is this happening to anyone else?

      Far better than Spotify. The only thing Spotify has going for it is free streaming, which is the only reason why it’s so popular. I’ve been using rhapsody for at least 5 years now and never had a complaint.

        Spotify has a student discount (50% off) so its only $5/month. That is the only reason I use it.

    So basically that leaves Spotify as one of the only providers without support. Awesome… Killing my subscription soon I think.

        Does it have support for scrobbling to last.fm yet? That’s one of the only things keeping me on Spotify.

    Oh, Napster. I remember you in grade school computer science classes.

      I heard Justin Timberlake founded Napster.
