After selling its subscription music service to Rhapsody America, a company that results from the partnership between Real Networks and MTV, Yahoo announces a new era in its search service.
According to the company, from now on, whenever a user searches for a certain artist on Yahoo, full music tracks will be shown in streaming. This is for cases where there is really content associated with that artist.
If, for example, the user searches for a singer like Bruce Springsteen, the result displayed will be headed by a list of five links that represent five music tracks. Hit the user to choose one of those links which is automatically presented to the FoxyTunes reader, responsible for the content reproduction.
In the end, there are only two disadvantages. This is because, from the catalog of 5 million songs offered by Rhapsody, the user will only have the right to listen to 25 entire tracks for free each month. From then on, you will have to subscribe to the Rhapsody Unlimited service or be content with an unlimited number of samples of songs lasting 30 seconds, at least until the following month. The second caveat is that this feature is only available to North American users.
