Rdio’s plan to compete with Apple and Spotify: The cheapest music subscription service we’ve seen yet
Dubbed Rdio Select, the new music streaming service will offer subscribers three main options. One will be a Pandora style music recommendation service, albeit without any pesky ads. Two, Rdio Select will allow users listen to any 25 songs of their choosing on-demand. And third, Rdio Select will offer users curated playlists from artists like Mumford & Sons along with “tastemakers like NPR Music and Rolling Stone.” To top it all off, Rdio notes that its songs come in higher 320 kbps quality.
