The music streaming site unveiled their redesigned website and desktop application last week at the 2012 South by Southwest festival and conference (SXSW). The latest version is more interactive and easier to navigate, with all the main user features available on the homepage.

In the new Rdio player interface, users can access their music Collection, History, Playlists, and Queue from the left sidebar, as well as Recent Activity, Top Charts, and New Releases, without leaving the page itself. Rdio also addressed user requests for the ability to add entire albums to playlists, in addition to single songs.

Users will be pleased to discover that the new site also includes the ability to drag-and-drop album and songs into existing playlists, and re-arrange the order of songs in a list. Features for collaborative playlists and the sharing of song and album titles and links via Twitter and Facebook still exist from the previous version.

    I'm an Rdio user and the new design is really nice. Everything just feels faster to do -- especially viewing recently played tracks (History.)
