Sony Music Unlimited Update Brings Offline Support and Custom Music Stations

Jul 20, 2012

Sony has launched an update to their Sony Music Unlimited app for Android. What’s new? First off, there’s a new “My Channels” feature that generates radio stations based on the massive library of 15 million songs available. That lineup of songs beats Google Play, which still doesn’t have music from Warner available. Additionally, tablet owners can now cache music offline, making it possible to listen to favorite tracks while outside of wifi or cellular network range. All that needs to be done is to tap the options for a playlist, and select “Available Offline”. Then, when network access is not available, music will still be accessible on the device. For users who prefer subscription services for their access – temporary though it may be – and prefer Sony’s services over competitors like Rhapsody or Spotify, or prefer the service due to the access on other Sony hardware, this update makes the app more useful. As well, the app’s tablet optimization gives it an edge. Sony Music Unlimited’s update is available now from Google Play.
