Premier digital music service Rdio (www.rdio.com), started by the creators of Skype, have announced at SXSW the availability of a completely redesigned Rdio, providing an even faster, simpler and more social music experience. At an invite-only presentation held at the #FEED house powered by Twitter in the Austin Museum of Art, Rdio showcased the new Web and desktop apps and also announced that more than 15 million songs are now available in its global catalogue, marking another major milestone.
The new Rdio amplifies the music discovery experience that has made the service a favorite amongst influencers, media and music fans around the world. Truly powered by people, Rdio is helping music find fans and fans find music, quicker than ever. And beginning today, current and new Rdio subscribers in the US, Canada, Germany, Australia, New Zealand, Spain, Portugal and Denmark can experience it.
“Rdio has always been ahead of the curve when it comes to design. With the new Rdio, we’ve gone even further, making it simpler, faster and more beautiful to create an experience that’s all about music and people,” said Malthe Sigurdsson, VP of Product, Rdio.
“Listening to user feedback, we’ve made Rdio bigger and better with new features that really make discovery fun. This is more than just a redesign; the new Rdio transforms the boring, spreadsheet-like way of consuming digital music into something visual and dynamic. This new platform will allow us to continue breaking new ground.”
The new Rdio brings all of the music and social connectivity that users have come to love into a cohesive, enhanced experience with new features including:
Rdio offers a truly massive catalogue, even more intuitive music discovery and a full suite of applications that fit seamlessly into people’s lives.
