As previously mentioned, the new version emphasizes the social aspect, and lets you search the apps for other people, view what playlist they’re listening to, and add them as friends from the app. The search also lets you focus on tracks you’ve synced for offline listening, even when you’re not in offline mode. This means you can simply choose to listen only to tracks you don’t have to stream, and thus save some precious battery life, if you need it.

Rdio lets you have all this on your mobile device for $9.99 a month, and there are some discounts if you’re purchasing the service for more than one person (family plans). If you’re not sure, you can sign up for a 7-days free trial from within the app or from [No Longer Available].

    Looks a lot nicer than the old app. I'm an Rdio subscriber, but the old Android app didn't thrill me and I wasn't about to spend another $5/month for it.

      Ah, so maybe you can tell us how Rdio is better than Spotify. :)

        Rdio is better than Spotify for me because Spotify isn't available in Canada.

        Exciting reason, huh?

    Is Rdio as good as Spotify?   Has anyone seen a comparison of them?

      Unfortunately, where I live neither is available. I did have a chance to try Spotify, and I quite liked it, but I didn't get to try Rdio a whole lot.
