Rhapsody Debuts Standalone Virtual Reality App
Streaming music pioneer Rhapsody is getting out in front of another tech development: virtual reality. The company has introduced a free VR app called Rhapsody VR, which will give users an immersive way to watch exclusive live performances.
The standalone app, available in the Apple App Store and Google Play, works best with Google Cardboard viewers.
Rhapsody is working closely with Minneapolis-based VR company Visual on the actual video for the project. “360º video is emerging as an exciting way to experience music and entertainment, and it’s been awesome to work with the future-thinking musicheads at Rhapsody,” said Visual founder Chuck Olson.
