Slacker gets on-demand song queuing

Slacker now allows custom playlists

Slacker today grew its Internet radio service into a full on-demand system. Subscribers to a new paid feature will have the option of finding and playing specific songs as well as creating their own playlists. Unlike other services like Rhapsody, the radio feature can come into play even in this mode and will auto-create a playlist based on favorited songs as well as create a larger radio station out of a user-made playlist.

On-demand playback gets the controls that users would expect, such as skipping back through songs.

Slacker is late into development of the feature and plans to launch it soon, but hasn't said exactly when it will be ready. It's also likely to carry different pricing than the current premium service but should compare to other Internet radio services with a similar amount of control. It has already been shown running on BlackBerry and iPhone, and is likely to reach Android soon as well.
