Rdio Launches Free Music Streaming Service with Support for iOS Devices

rdio_logoAfter its plans for free music streaming were detailed ahead of the launch of iTunes Radio last month, Rdio is set to launch a free version of its service today on iOS, reports The Verge.

The service is a free version of its “Station” feature, and is available for users of the service’s mobile apps in the United States, Canada, and Australia, and features unlimited listening to a wide variety of music that is available on the service.
Starting today, Rdio’s radio feature, which it calls Stations, is free to non-subscribers on its mobile apps in the United States, Canada, and Australia. Previously, a user who reached the end of Rdio’s 14-day free trial and decided not to pay could no longer listen to music inside the app. Now that user can listen to an unlimited number of artist, album, genre, and track-based stations, in addition to "You FM," Rdio’s personalized take on a listener’s tastes. It comes two months after the company rolled out a similar offering on the web.
Rdio was updated with highly personalized radio stations for its premium users in August, and the move to offer free unlimited music streaming comes after Pandora announced in August that it would be removing its 40-hour free listening limit ahead of the launch of Apple’s iTunes Radio.

Rdio is a universal app that can be downloaded from the App Store for free. [Direct Link]

What is station listening mode (I'm new to rdio)? I just installed, registered, and I'm able to pick an album and listen to any track, plus forward, skip, and rewind. Very nice free functions. Hopefully I'll stay this way.


You probably got your 30 days free trial with full functionality when signing up. After that, you will only be able to listen to 30 second snippets without paying when selecting a specific track.

Nice. I like iTunes Radio, though. If only because I can 'star' a song and whatnot from anywhere on the device. That's not Rdio's fault, of course.
