Rdio in the New Google Chrome Web Store

Tackling the occasionally scattered array of web apps, Google today announced the creation of Google Chrome Web Store. How does that relate to us? You can also find Rdio in their list of web apps.

Offering the same features as Rdio.com, you’ll find it easy to discover, share and listen to whatever you want, whenever you want.

(Do you love Rdio? Be sure to go the Google Chrome Web Store and rate, review and discuss why you think we’re so grand. We would sure appreciate you spreading the good cheer. And as always, if you find us lacking in one department or another, please do let us know and we’ll do our best to fix it.)

Discover More Music with Rdio and Twitter

Where do you go after you find a band so incredible you want to tell all your friends? From what digital rooftop would you shout your love for that newly available re-issue album? Most people head straight to Twitter.

Starting today, Twitter isn’t just someplace you can only talk about music—it’s also someplace you can actually hear music. Now when someone views a tweet that links to an Rdio song, album or playlist, our embedded music player will appear in the details pane of #NewTwitter.

What happens when someone who hasn’t yet discovered Rdio sees the music player? They can listen to 30-second samples and easily sign-up to enjoy the free 7-day trial.

If you’d like to see Rdio’s embedded players in action on Twitter, give it a try yourself! Make sure your Rdio and Twitter accounts are linked and start sharing.
