Rdio isn’t exactly the go-to service for many when it comes to music streaming (hello, Spotify!). However, the latest announcement might just convince folks to make the switch – or at least give it a spin – as the door to the free music streaming service is now open to users in more countries.
In addition to the U.S., the free service is now live in “nearly all countries” where Rdio is currently available. The list includes UK, Australia, Belgium, Canada, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Portugal, Spain, and Sweden.
New and current users will have access to Rdio’s library of 18 million songs and use the music streaming service free for up to six months, but it also depends on how often you stream the songs. You can stream the music on your browser or through the desktop app.
If you think you’ll be listening to more music than the given quota, you can sign up for the unlimited subscription plan, which starts at $4.99 per month. Streaming music on the go – such as on your Android mobile device — will cost you $9.99 per month. It’ll also give you the ability to listen to the songs offline.
