Rhapsody has launched an updated version of its subscription music app for Google Android. The biggest change is that Rhapsody 2.0 now supports offline playback of playlists. You can download playlists and listen when you don’t have an internet connection handy — although Rhapsody is still in the subscription/streaming music business, not the pay per download business. If you stop paying, the music stops playing.

Other changes in Rhapsody 2.0 include:

  • Refreshed user interface
  • High resolution album art when available
  • New “search artist stations” option on artist screens
  • New toolbar with download and other options on the playlist screen
  • New settings options for offline playback
  • Bug fixes and stability improvements

Rhapsody 2.0 is available as a free download from the Android Market.

  1. This app is nothing like the one for the iphone. Can they just make it similar? Navigation, downloading albums (no playlists), searching. Everything is way smoother on the iPhone app.
