Now Available: the Rdio API

If you use Rdio and are a developer, chances are you’ve had a thought or two about ways you could make Rdio your own. Maybe you’d like to add a new feature, create an app, or integrate a music player into something else? Now you can make that idea a reality with the Rdio API.

No need to worry about licensing millions of songs for your own use—easily access Rdio’s music catalog for your next brilliant idea. Bring to life the countless ways we can all discover and enjoy music.

Technically speaking, the Rdio API includes an oEmbed API, REST API, and Web Playback API. There are also a multitude of other Rdio features available—search, play, top charts, Network Heavy Rotation, playlist creation and editing, people search, and users’ collections.

Besides building something cool with Rdio, you can also earn money in return for your efforts—get paid for each new Rdio subscriber and mp3 download made through your application, as part of our newly available Affiliate Program.

Not a developer? This is good news for you too. Besides joining our Affiliate Program, just wait to see and hear the ways Rdio is being used around the web. Some initial projects using the Rdio API include AOL, Roku,, Tweetlouder, and The GRAMMY Awards’® MusicIsLifeIsMusic microsite and MusicMapper app.
