Last week we launched the new Rdio preview for all subscribers. This week we’re kicking off the New Rdio Spotlight series to help familiarize you with some new features and behind-the-scenes improvements.
Housed on the left sidebar, let’s begin with the Browse section — with new Rdio, prepare to find music faster than ever. Easy access to both new and well-loved features can expedite your new music exploration, then quickly get back to where you left off listening.
You might have noticed that Heavy Rotation got a face-lift — discover what your network is listening to by scrolling through a tailored album display. With New Rdio, just hover over the user icons next to each album to see how many friends have listened to it. You can click the number icon to see a full list.
Pro-tip: you can still find your own top albums on your profile page, just click your name in the upper right-hand corner.
Go to Recent Activity to check out what Your Network has been up to. You’ll see their latest reviews, playlist updates, what they’re adding to their Collections and more.
Top Charts is still the home of the most played-music on Rdio, but now you can see which of your friends is jamming out. Sort by Album, Song, Artist, and even browse through the top Playlists on Rdio.
Be in-the-know with New Releases. Every Tuesday, find out what came out this week, last week, or the week before. You can also click Overview to see the most popular releases from the last few weeks in one place.
That wraps up this week’s New Rdio Spotlight. Tune in next week for more tips and tricks.
