Rhapsody and Napster subscribers on Android can now send music to their TV through Chromecast. Rhapsody and Napster are two more in a long line of apps that have added support for the Google Chromecast since the cast sdk was released in February. And with each new app, users gain a greater bang for their buck from this $35 streaming device.

Napster, now owned by Rhapsody, along with Rhapsody itself, offer users a music catalogue of over 18 million songs for a $10/month subscription fee. Music is streamed to your devices, but can also be downloaded for offline use. Users control what they want to listen to and experience it ad-free.

The addition of Chromecast support continues the ad-free experience on the big screen in your home. In the words of Paul Springer, SVP of Americas and Chief Product Officer, “adding support for Google Chromecast is another example of our commitment to giving music lovers more ways to easily enjoy the music they love in the comfort of their own home without interruption.”

We recently had a debate whether Chromecast was destined to be king of the TV, or if the new Amazon Fire TV was the next big thing. Feel free to go join in that debate, but one thing is for certain, with more and more services like Rhapsody and Napster coming to Chromecast, Google appears to have a bit of a hit device on their hands, and for $35, it is something that most of us can afford to enjoy.

Update Rhapsody in the Play Store app on your Android device, or grab the Rhapsody app from the Google Play Store.

Current Rhapsody and Napster users – is Chromecast support one of the key features you’ve been desperately waiting for? If you’ve been on the fence about using Rhapsody and Napster, is Chromecast support a deciding factor?

    Chromecast is an awesome device, and is becoming better and better by the day, as more software supports it!
    I can’t wait will Koush adds support for chromecast mirroring for other devices!

    Like I previously said, Chromecast will continue to get better and better!!! Now Google fix the store so it makes it easy to find compatible chromecast apps easier. There’s many apps which are Chromecast compatible yet they are not the Chromecast i.e autocast, localcast, etc. However for those user trying to find these apps, download the cast store app in the play store. They have done a decent job organizing these compatible apps.

    yes because playing music thru the TV is better that playing it to a Bluetooth device
