Rdio is an unlimited, on-demand social music service that lets subscribers listen to music on the web and mobile devices, anytime and anywhere. Rdio’s key differentiator is its unique social design that emulates the way music has always been shared—from person to person. Rdio subscribers build and share their online music collections from a catalogue of over 8 million songs, and can see the listening activity, collections and playlists of those they follow. Subscribers can also see what’s in heavy rotation in their network and the Rdio community, top charts and newly released albums. Rdio has relationships with all four major labels (EMI Music, Sony Music Entertainment, Universal Music Group and Warner Music Group) and thousands of indie labels.
