Slacker Radio revamps look, adds ringtone option (for Verizon only)

In case you've forgotten that it exists, in the wake of Spotify, Pandora, and even Jay-Z's attempt at music streaming (Tidal), Slacker Radio is still alive and kicking, and apparently, not slacking off.

It's about time for a revamp in order to keep up with the competition and also differentiate itself from the others.

Amazon Prime Music launches “Prime Stations”, soon for Android

The slowly growing music streaming market has got another competitor on the block, and it comes from online retail giant Amazon. "Prime Stations" will now be integrated into their Amazon Prime Music service, available on several platforms, but sadly, not yet for Android devices.

Universal asks Spotify to “strongly urge” users to switch to premium

While there is no doubt that digital music and music streaming services has totally revolutionized the way we listen to and consume music, what is still up for debate is how artists and music label are "properly compensated".

Now, even one of the stakeholders of the service is dissatisfied with how they are monetizing from users who have almost unlimited access to their catalog.
