Napster updated as a universal app for Windows 10 with new design and more

If you happen to use Napster as your streaming music service of choice, there's a new version of the Windows app to check out. The update includes a full revamp as a Universal Windows Platform (UWP) app with a fresh new design and more.

Compared to Napster's previous design, the revamp looks much more modern, incorporating Windows 10 design elements throughout. There's a dark theme all over, along with a pretty straightforward set of navigation buttons on the left side and player controls across the bottom. Meanwhile, the update to UWP means that the desktop and Mobile apps share a code base, making it easier for Napster to introduce new features and tweaks across both.

The update comes a little over 7 months after Rhapsody rebranded itself as Napster in the middle of 2016, resurrecting the brand once again. If you want to check out the updated app, do note that you'll need to have an active subscription to dive in. If you already use the app, however, you should be able to update to version and give it a shot on both desktop and Mobile now.
