streaming service Rdio shutting down on December 22
by Bill Pearis
Rdio, the streaming service that was recently acquired by Pandora, will be switching off December 22 at approximately 5 PM. They sent this email to subscribers:
Over the course of five years, Rdio has grown to become a global community of music lovers — a place to discover, listen, and collect. We’re proud to have built that community with you….
…We know you want to find a home for the music you’ve discovered and collected on Rdio, so we’re providing ways for you to take it with you. Visit rdio.com/farewell and log in with your Rdio account for more information.
That farewell link allows users to export a list of everything they ever listened to through Rdio, as well as playlists and comments — kinda cool. Apparently I listened to Brian Eno’s Music for Airports a whole lot (while I slept). RIP, Rdio.
