While everyone’s been busy raving about Spotify finally coming to the United States, Rdio quietly continues to get better and better. Last week, in an effort to incite new customers to subscribe to their awesome collection of streaming tunes, the internet music juggernaut announced that it would provide a usage-based free monthly music streaming service to their customers that allows for a finite number of songs per month to be listened to. With this in mind, we’ve opted to make Rdio our Chrome Web App of the Week.
With its easy to navigate interface and high quality sound, Rdio is a music lover’s dream. With over 12 million songs to choose from, it’s almost impossible to not find something on Rdio that’ll please your ears. If you’re feeling indecisive about what to listen to, you can also turn to other Rdio listeners for suggestions or hunt down your connections from Twitter or Facebook as well as a number of popular online mail services. Once you’ve hunted down some tunes you love, add them to your Rdio collection, tag them to listen to later or, as a premium subscriber, transfer them to your mobile device to listen to later.
Given it’s deep feature set, expansive catalog of music, connectivity options and the ability to kick out the jams from any internet connected rig, tablet and most smartphones, Rdio is a great choice for any music aficionado to get their groove on to.
