Rhapsody launches a VR app featuring 360-degree concert videos

Immersive concerts

The music-streaming service Rhapsody has released a virtual reality app, naturally called Rhapsody VR, which will offer exclusive 360-degree concert videos. The app is designed to work with Google Cardboard, and currently features performances from Talib Kweli, Flatbush Zombies, and Dem Atlas, among others.

Rhapsody says users don't need a subscription to its streaming service to use the app — everyone can watch the videos for free. This isn't the first time a music company has made an investment in VR this year; Universal Music Group and iHeartRadio announced it would bring the technology to concerts back in January. Rhapsody says it will be uploading new content on a monthly basis. You can download Rhapsody VR from the App Store or the Google Play Store today.
