Rdio Release Amazing New Design, Free Radio and Better Personalization

Streaming music startup Rdio has launched a whole new design across all platforms. Additionally, Rdio has added a more robust personalization features powered by its own growing in-house music intelligence data-science team.

Rdio has put their free radio service right at the forefront of the service and the company wants users to know it’s one of the only places out there to go for free, streaming cross-platform radio with over 30 million tracks that works in a variety of international markets, in comparison to the limited global footprint of services like iTunes Radio and the smaller catalog of services like Pandora.
