Rhapsody music streaming app undergoes redesign 

Because there’s an increasingly competitive music streaming market, apps have to either reinvent themselves (if they’ve already been in the market for so long) or to constantly add new features in order to keep up with everyone else. Rhapsody probably falls into both categories, and the newest update to the app suggests that it’s not counting itself out of the race, even if there’s so much competition out there. The update brings with it a redesign Android app, as well as several new features that may cause you to give it a second look.

Stream your music from OneDrive to Xbox Music app

While music streaming services have been growing in popularity the past few months, there are still some who prefer to play their own music from their own devices. But sometimes, there isn't enough space on your smartphone or tablet, and you have to limit the songs you've saved on your device.

Classic rockers AC/DC finally arrives on music streaming services

Music streaming may be big business now, but not all artists are immediately on board to have their entire catalog available for the world on various platforms, without actually paying for them per se. There are those who take some time before finally allowing their labels to put up their music on places like Spotify, Rdio, Deezer, and Google Play Music (and now, Apple Music as well). One of the most popular rock bands in the world, AC/DC, has finally agreed to join said services and classic rock fans couldn't be happier.

CloudPlayer puts you in control of your music

The name CloudPlayer can be a little confusing because there are apps already named as such. For one, there's Amazon's Cloud Player and several other cloud players available. CloudPlayer is yet another music player that lets you control your favorite music. It's linked to your other cloud accounts so whether your audio files are stored on your Google Drive, Dropbox, or OneDrive, you can play your fave tunes anytime, anywhere.

LINE launches streaming music service in Japan

Japan may be the second-biggest music market in the world, but the industry is vastly different as it is still compact discs that account for more than half of their music sales.

LINE Music is now available for a monthly subscription, offering unlimited access to millions of songs in their library.

Take for example this Apple Music. The new service won't be available only for the iPhones but will also work on Android devices.

Spotify now available as an app for Android Wear

When smartwatches and wearables came on the scene, listening to music on your mobile devices became even easier. Not that you'd listen to music directly from something on your wrist, mind you. But controlling the music without touching your smartphone saves you a few minutes and several movements as well. One of the most popular (yet controversial) music streaming services will be arriving soon to your wearables. Welcome Spotify to the (apparently 4,000-app strong) world of Android Wear.
