Update

Rdio is the groundbreaking digital music service that has reinvented the way people discover, play, and share music. With on-demand access to over 12 million songs, Rdio connects people with music and makes it easy to search for and instantly play any song, album, artist or playlist without ever hearing a single ad. Discover what friends, people with similar tastes, recording artists and more are listening to in real-time and share across Twitter and Facebook. Build a digital music collection that's available everywhere - on the web, in-home or in-car, on an iPad or smartphone, and even offline.

Rdio's library includes content from major record labels, as well as Merlin, INgrooves, The Orchard, CD Baby, TuneCore, and Believe, in addition to independent labels and distributors across the world.

Launched in August 2010, Rdio is headquartered in San Francisco and was founded by Janus Friis, one of the creators of Skype. Currently available in 51 countries, Rdio is funded by Atomico, Janus Friis through his investment entities, Skype and Mangrove Capital Partners.
