Two more streaming music services are joining the ever-growing list of apps that support Chromecast. Now you can plug Google’s cheap media streamer into your TV’s HDMI port, fire up Rhapsody or Napster on your Android phone or tablet, and stream music to your TV.
Like most big music streaming services these days, Rhapsody and Napster (which are owned by the same company these days) charge $10 per month to listen to music-on-demand. Subscribers can also download tracks to their device for listening without streaming over the internet.
Now when you run the streaming music apps on your phone, if there’s a Chromecast on your home network you should see a Cast icon in the corner. Tap it and choose your Chromecast to stream music to your TV instead of your phone.
Online radio service Pandora already supports Chromecast, as does Rhapsody competitor Rdio.
That’s nice for the 23 combined people that use those services.
