New York , NY: ROCKI, the original wireless streaming device has announced a partnership with Rhapsody, the premier streaming music service company, to offer ROCKI users more options to free their music. ROCKI will integrate Rhapsody into their software offerings allowing current and future ROCKI users to enjoy all their music, including their Rhapsody playlists, from one easy-to-use app.
“Offering streaming music services within the ROCKI platform has been a goal since the formation of ROCKI,” says Nick Yap, Founder and CEO of ROCKI. “Offering our users more solutions, like Rhapsody, to stream their favorite music is the cornerstone of ROCKI; an easy-to-use and affordable solution for every person.”
When programming is complete in September, the ROCKI app will feature a Rhapsody icon that will connect users directly to their Rhapsody account allowing them to play any song, artist or playlist through their ROCKI connected speakers. The app integration will also allow users to add their Rhapsody saved music directly to their ROCKI playlists.
“The partnership with ROCKI represents another example of our commitment to music lovers as we support new ways for fans to experience the music they love,” said Brian McGarvey, Vice President of Business Development at Rhapsody International. “ROCKI makes it easier for Rhapsody customers to experience music without interruption on any audio system – even on older models, making what’s old, new again.”
ROCKI Play is a portable WiFi enabled dongle that quickly transforms any speaker to a wireless speaker system. Using WiFi, ROCKI receives audio from smartphones, tablets or PCs, at a greater distance than Bluetooth technology. The free downloadable ROCKI app, available for Android and iOS, allows users to access their saved music, access multiple devices’ shared music creating socially curated playlists with a Jukebox feel and now access online radio streaming service Rhapsody. The ROCKI app also supports multiple users playing music to multiple spears in many rooms at the same time or different tunes in different rooms.
ROCKI Play is available at www.myrocki.com for $49.
ROCKI has designed and developed the ROCKI WiFi Music System that will help revolutionize home music.
