Introducing: New Rdio →

Sorry Spotify, I’m being unfaithful. But, you’re not available in Australia, so I had to find a replacement.

I’m really happy to see a change in Rdio’s interface to look more like you, iTunes and Spotify with the menu panel on the left. I have not been using Rdio for a long time, but the hassle to easily create playlists has refrained me from spending a lot of time in the app. However, one cool feature is the ‘artist radio’. If you’re familiar with, it should ring a bell. It is the ability to listen to a generated playlist mixing the artist and similar ones. Great way to discover new tracks!

Unfortunately, I’m not an unlimited subscriber so I’ll have to wait a bit. If you are one, here is how to try it:

The completely redesigned new Rdio is available on and the Rdio desktop apps to all Web and Unlimited subscribers. Switch on new Rdio from the drop down menu under your name and “Try New Rdio.”
