Rdio-Thumb

Spotify made news earlier today by lowering its barrier to entry, allowing users to stream music to their phone or tablets for free. Yet it isn't the only music-streaming service in town, and competitor Rdio has expanded access to 20 additional countries. This brings the total number of supported territories up to 51, which this handy map illustrates.

Rdio

Newly supported countries:

  • Argentina
  • Bolivia
  • Costa Rica
  • Dominican Republic
  • Ecuador
  • El Salvador
  • Guatemala
  • Honduras
  • Hungary
  • Israel
  • Liechtenstein
  • Luxembourg
  • Monaco
  • Nicaragua
  • Panama
  • Paraguay
  • Peru
  • South Africa
  • Uruguay
  • Venezuela

An Android app is offered in the Play Store, and though you're free to give it a go for a limited time, you will need to pony up for a monthly subscription to make extended use of it. So if your country is in the list above, congratulations, you too may now take advantage of the app in the Play Store below.

    Can someone tell me if the Netherlands is supported, because i can't find it sadly.

  • spacekobra

    Used up my free months. I'd pay for it if I wasn't on a very limited budget.

    Those play store ratings are the worst. Why on earth are people holding stars ransom for not having ART support? I'd understand if it was an official thing but currently its not.

      Doogle should put some kind of test to see if the person is ready to access developer option, other than the person having to find it :-/
      I mean what is this
      "No support for ART yet As others have mentioned, doesn't support art and crashes horribly. As it works on all other devices I have not running android and I love it very much, I will keep the rating decent, but please fix this as I have two paying accounts and feel sort of neglected. "
      :facepalm:

    I'll just wait for Google to announce availability in SA (there's already an expanding list of local artists on Play Music), but choice is good :)

    On another note, it seems like Play Music's 'official' SD support on KK devices went unnoticed. My phone has 4GB internal memory, which meant I couldn't keep a lot of music offline. After last week's update, the app automatically moved all my offline music to the SD card, and I can save more music to the SD (uses DRMed files, can see them with file manager but can't open them outside of the Play Music app)

    Spotify covered more countries in Latin America than Rdio. Sad.

    Interesting... will Rdio accept Venezuelan or Argentinian currency since there is currency exchange restriction in both countries or how do they plan to monetize there?

    • Armando Rodriguez

      For Venezuela in the website the price appear in VEF but the final transaction is made in USD at official rate exchange.

  • Sahil Chaturvedi

    Indiaaa please.

  • sa

    That map is not very helpful at all. Stupid dots.

  • Javier Rivera Carozzi
