Tips & Tricks: Waste Not, Want Not

Tips & Tricks Many monthly cellular data plans are limited these days — but luckily that doesn’t mean your Rdio experience has to be limited as well.

There are a few easy ways to conserve your data without restricting your Rdio Mobile apps (for iPhone, Android and Blackberry)—this week’s Tips & Tricks is here to show you how.

Tip 1: Sync Your Tunes

Save data by syncing your tunes. Synced music is stored directly on your device, and does not need a connection to play. Whether you’re Online or Offline, playing synced music won’t use any data.

Tip 2: Stream and Sync over a Wifi Connection

Connect to Wifi for high-quality streams and faster syncing without taking a toll on your monthly 3G data plan.

Tip 3: Customize Your Sync Settings

To minimize date usage while syncing your tunes, edit your Settings. On an iOS device, go to Settings and tap Advanced—you can select “Wifi Only” to make sure the phone won’t ever sync over 3G. On an Android device you can do this by going to Settings, tapping Enable Background Syncing and selecting “Wifi Only.”

Now you can listen to Rdio on-the-go, worry-free. If you’ve got any questions or comments, we’d love to hear from you.
