Rdio, the unlimited, on-demand social music service has become the first of its kind to debut a shared listening plan. Effect immediately, customers can merge up to three individual plans into one billed account, saving money in the process. Rather than charging each member the standard $9.99 rate plan, two users can save 10% and get a discounted rate of $17.99 per month. Toss in a third account and the savings becomes 23% at $22.99 per month.
Rdio’s catalog is 10 million strong and getting bigger every day. Users can not only create their own individual playlists but then can also follow friends, people with similar music tastes and recording artists. And what good is a social music service without the ability to share? Rdio also lets users share their songs and preferences across Facebook and Twitter.
The Rdio Android application is a free download for any device running 1.6 or higher, including tablets. Additional clients include PC, Mac, iPad, iPhone, BlackBerry, Windows Phone 7, and devices such as Sonos and Roku.
