Apart from listening to saved songs, on Napster 4.0, the service’s 770,000 odd subscribers can access albums and playlists online from its massive music catalog of 5 million tracks

Christopher Allen, Chief Operating Officer at Napster, stated, “With this new platform, Napster can easily be integrated into consumer electronics devices or integrated into other Web sites such as social networking sites.”

Users need to shell out anything from $10 to $15 a month to stream or download an unlimited number of songs from its humungous library. On the other hand, iTunes sells songs as permanent downloads at 99 cents each.
