Rdio Brings Free Personalized Radio To Mobile App

Even if you're not paying for Rdio's streaming music service, you can now get your groove on with the mobile app. In an effort to attract more users from Spotify and Pandora, Rdio has made its personalized radio streaming service free in the app. The new feature goes live later today with an app update in Google Play.

Rdio has 10 different station types, including those based on artists, genres, songs, and the hyper-personal "You FM." There's no offline caching, and you can't queue up specific songs, but Rdio does have over 20 million tracks to pull into the radio stations.

RCA's Unannounced Internet Music System Slaps A 7-Inch Android Tablet On A Shelf System To Wirelessly Stream Media

It's not often that RCA does something worth talking about these days, but the company has apparently been working on a product dubbed the Internet Music System (model number RCS13101E). This device streams media to the included speakers, or to a TV over HDMI. That's cool, but the important thing is that it's powered by Android with Google apps included. It has just started popping up in Walmart stockrooms, and will presumably be on sale soon.

[New Game] Sony Music Entertainment Bumps Pinball Rocks HD Into The Play Store, Jams A Jukebox Into Your Pinball Machine

Sony knows you like playing pinball, but they also know you tend to reach for the volume rocker after you launch the ball into the first bumper and it sets off a cacophony of sound. They know that all that pinball experience needs to be perfect is background music that overpowers those obnoxious pinball sound effects. So they've brought in hits from rock bands both new and old to provide the soundtrack for Pinball Rocks HD, an experience Sony's pitching as the loudest pinball game ever.

Google Begins Staged Rollout Of Play Music v5.2 - Say Hello To Genre Radio, New Download Queue [APK Download]

A Google Play Music update v5.2 just popped up in the Play Store, though it's being slowly rolled out, as is the case with many big Google apps nowadays. The previous version is 5.1, and indeed I'm seeing quite a few changes inside that would warrant a point release.

Update 9/10/13 4:00pm PT: the official changelog has been posted:

What's New

v5.2.1204L

* All Access Genre Radio is here!

[New App] Music Maker Jam Is A Windows Song-Mixing App Making The Hop To Android, Now Available In The Play Store

As Android users, we've all grown accustomed to getting apps ported to our devices that originated on iOS. It's for this reason that Music Maker Jam by MAGIX's Android debut comes as a bit of a surprise. This app comes to us not from the Apple App Store, but from the Windows Store instead. Music Maker Jam makes mixing your own songs an easy experience and offers a large selection of professionally produced material to work with.

Shazam Gets Huge Update To v4.0 With A Killer New UI, Leaves Paid Version In The Dust [Update: Shazam Encore, Too]

Shazam is no longer the only app that can listen to music and tell you what song is playing, but it's still a pretty popular app. That's why it was so upsetting that Shazam was obscenely ugly. Thankfully, in the just released update Shazam has gotten a complete UI overhaul, and it's kind of #HOLOYOLO.

Audio Glow Music Visualizer And Live Wallpaper Updated To 2.0 With Swipe Controls And A New Visualization Style

We featured Audio Glow when it launched in November of last year. This ultra-stylish music visualizer takes the basic visual component of classic hi-fi systems and gives it a fresh coat of paint. It's gained quite a following thanks to eye-popping visuals and a huge degree of customization. Today's version 2.0 update adds some interesting options, most notably the new "Glowing Strings" visualization, below.

This nifty option is available as a $1 in-app purchase for the main Music Visualizer app, but the developer has kindly included a 5-minute preview that you can check out before buying.

[New App] SoundSeeder Streams Music From One Android Device To Others Over WiFi Like A Poor Man's Sonos

I really like the Sonos system of wireless music servers and speakers. I also can't afford it due to a wretched and unshakeable habit of collecting novelty egg cups. But my job does give me a paper-thin excuse for buying tons of Android devices, and it just so happens that a new app will let me cobble those together to make a vague approximation of a connected music system.

unnamed (9) unnamed (10) unnamed (11)

SoundSeeder is more or less a straight-up copy of Samsung's Group Play, with the obvious addition that you don't need Samsung hardware at either end to use it.

[Hands-On] NicePlayer Is A New Android Music Player Defined By Its Polished Card-Style UI

There's no shortage of music players for Android, but each one fills a particular niche that another offering just doesn't quite address. CloudAround, for example, is a great option for people who love cloud storage but don't want to trust their files entirely to one service or happen to rely on a service that doesn't offer a music streaming app (i.e. most of them). NicePlayer's draw is perhaps more superficial. This is a music player for people who love a clean card-style layout and can't get enough of apps that embrace it.

[Hands-On] Floating Music Widget Makes The Standard Lock Screen Music Widget Usable Everywhere

Floating Music Widget, despite the name, isn't really a widget. It's an app that launches a floating window granting quick access to your currently playing song. The app takes the music widget that usually resides on your lock screen and lets you use it anywhere. It isn't rich with features, but it's a convenient way of bouncing back and forward between tracks. Yet despite doing exactly what it promises, it probably won't replace other means of managing music for most people.
