Early this summer, T-Mobile announced a Music Freedom plan that would allow customers to stream music from select services without impacting their data allotment. Some people opposed this offering on principle. Others were simply upset to see their favorite services not supported. Around these parts, Google Play Music topped the list of what folks wanted to see.

T-Mobile said it was going to do something about this, and now it has.

The makers of Digitally Imported Radio (DI.FM) have hit the Play Store with another streaming app, and this time they're out to give fans of Latin, Hispanic, and Caribbean music reason to bob their heads, sway their hips, and tap their toes. The app, Fresca Radio, provides 40 stations filled with curated tracks. There's a Cuban Lounge station, one for Latin Metal, and another option dedicated entirely to Reggae.

Music streaming apps aren't such a rarity that they get a shoutout merely for existing.

Pandora

Pandora is currently rolling out a redesigned version of its Android app that may just cause more than a few double takes. The Internet radio service has looked largely the same on Android for a few years now, but the UI introduced in 5.5 is strikingly different - at first, at least. This change is stark, but it's only surface deep.

What's New?

The Pandora app has been stripped of its blue gradients.

Just like traditional radio, listening to internet radio without paying money requires putting up with ads. Well, usually. Radical.fm tosses this entire concept out the window by letting users stream music for free. If listeners would like to donate to the company to help out, it would be nice, but such generosity is not required. There's a catch, though. The Android app, despite just launching, already looks like it hasn't received an update in three years.

The first major update to the Beats Music app since Apple bought the company two weeks ago is now rolling out to Android devices. This release, version 1.1, addresses some areas that previously revealed just how young a piece of software this is. For starters, the app now supports landscape mode. Go ahead, turn your phone sideways and see what happens. Better yet, fire Beats up on a tablet.

In addition to that, people listening in offline mode can now save music to an SD card.

On the same day that Apple buys Beats Music, users are being rewarded with two niceties. The free trial period welcoming testers of the music streaming service has extended from one week to two, giving potential customers a full fourteen days to decide if the service is apt for them. Even sweeter, the annual price has dropped down from $119.88 a year to the more attractive $99.99.

What's new:

  • We're stoked to announce that our no strings attached trial has been extended to 14 days to ensure everyone gets ample time to explore the full Beats Music experience.

Thus far Milk Music has provided a fat-free experience. Since launching two months ago, the music streaming app has been straightforward, rather minimalist, and ad-free. But after taking time to reflect on the matter, Samsung's decided that perhaps a little bit of fat wound be healthier long-term. So the company's adding ads to the free version of the software, with a new ad-free premium subscription soon to launch for $3.99 a month.

Spotify users are currently receiving an update to version 0.7.8 that pretties up the app's playlist experience. Now instead of merely display song text, the software will serve up album art. Here we have a before and after image for your convenience.

It turns out Spotify Connect has a very useful feature that the company hasn't done much to make immediately obvious. The service, which lets you stream music to WiFi-connected speakers from your smartphone or tablet, also lets you pump music to other Android devices. The devices don't even have to be on the same network, for that matter. You can connect from an LTE network, as you can see in the screenshots below.

Chromecast streaming is all the rage right now, but BubbleUPnP has been reliably streaming local audio and video to compatible devices like the Xbox 360, PS3, XBMC, or any Universal Plug and Play or DLNA devices for months. Today the app has been updated with a special treat for root users: an "Audio Cast" mode that expands BubbleUPnP's streaming capability to include most third-party apps like Spotify or Google Play Music.
