Rdio today announced a new version of its Android and iOS application, both of which are complete redesigns of the existing client. Available immediately, the streaming music service apps feature a number of new features poured on top of a faster, sleeker look.

Details include:

  • A new look and feel — The latest update includes design elements similar to our desktop and web experience: clean and minimal.
  • New side-bar navigation — A new navigation panel pops open on the left side of the app to bring you to Your Music, Settings, Playlists, and other features.
  • Remote control — The app will notify you if “Rdio is playing elsewhere.” Pause, skip, or play a station from wherever you are, or click “Play Here Instead” and your mobile device will pick up right where your laptop left off.
  • Infinite scroll — You’ll never run out of new music to explore. Rdio loads more content as you scroll through Heavy Rotation, Top Charts, and New Releases.

Keep in mind that while the Android app itself is free, a monthly subscription of $9.99 is required to take advantage of the service.
