Rdio in the dashboard: Jaguar and Land Rover drivers can now take their tunes on the road

In January, we announced an exclusive global partnership with Bosch to bring Rdio into the dashboards of vehicles that support Bosch’s mySPIN infotainment system. As of July 1, we’re excited to announce that Rdio Unlimited subscribers can now use Rdio directly within their Jaguar and Land Rover vehicles.

Rdio is the first in-car on-demand music streaming service to be included within Jaguar and Land Rover’s InControl Apps platform. InControl connects the vehicle directly to the Rdio app on your phone safely and instantly, making a seamless transition from earbuds to car speakers. Our award-winning user experience has been re-thought from the ground up to take full advantage of the InControl platform, delivering the best in-car experience around. No more fiddling with the phone—now you can easily and safely access your Rdio features directly in the dash, including personalized radio, curated stations, search, albums, playlists, and favorites—online or offline.

To take the music on the road with you, simply download Jaguar or Land Rover InControl from either the Google Play or Apple's App Store and enable Rdio. Rdio Unlimited listeners can take advantage of this partnership today. Support for Rdio’s free and Select tiers will be integrated later this year.

Mice Better Have My Money

Cats-2 (1)
Everyone here at Rdio couldn't be more excited to announce our partnership with the most famous cats on the block! We've teamed up with founders Grumpy Cat, Lil Bub, Piano Cat, I Can Has Cheezburger cat, Maru, and Nyan Cat, to release a new service specifically for cats.

After meeting up for dinner in LA, (after The Grammys) the cats decided they'd had enough of being misrepresented in the music world and needed to close the gap. Their goal was to bring their fellow felines access to kitty curated tracks. Thus, Rdio-Meowz was born.

In celebration, purr to the "Meow Mix" station, and welcome Rdio-Meowz.

Movie's Biggest Night Recap - “Glory” Wins on Rdio Plus All Our Top 10 Soundtracks and Songs

Lady Gaga may have stolen the show last night at the Academy Awards with her medley of songs from “The Sound of Music,” but on Rdio, it was “Glory” by John Legend and Common from the film “Selma” that leaped to the top of our charts. Streams of the song spiked over 250% in the 3 hours after the broadcast. Other big winners on Rdio were Alexandre Desplat’s “The Grand Budapest Hotel,” which took home the Oscar for Best Original Score and Antonio Sanchez's jazzy soundtrack to “Birdman” which won multiple awards, including Best Picture.

To celebrate cinema’s biggest night, we looked at overall film content on Rdio over the past year. Hans Zimmer’s score to Christopher Nolan’s blockbuster film, “Interstellar” earned the title of “Most Popular Original Score,” while the contagious anthem, “Everything Is Awesome,” from “The Lego Movie,” performed last night by Tegan and Sara, The Lonely Island, Questlove + Devo won “Most Played Oscar Nominee.” The pop-laden soundtrack to YA series, “Divergent” featuring Ellie Goulding and ZEDD scored our most popular soundtrack on Rdio.

Whether you prefer film scores or songs, turn on our free Movie Stations to listen to some of the most popular film music on Rdio.


Celebrate Placebo’s 20-Year Anniversary With A Catalog of Reissues

UK heroes Placebo are in the spotlight all this week here on Rdio as we celebrate their catalog, available for streaming for the first time. Listen to two decades of the band’s success with daily reissues of their vital catalog. Seven of Placebo’s albums (all but 2013’s Loud Like Love) are back to introduce to a whole new generation of listeners. Start the Placebo party with their 1996 self-titled debut, 1998’s Without You I’m Nothing, and 2000’s Black Market Music.

On Thursday, they will release 2003’s Sleeping With Ghosts; Friday, 2006’s Meds, Saturday, 2009’s Battle for the Sun and finally Sunday, Covers, the latter originally released as a bonus disc with Sleeping With Ghosts.

Throughout the band’s life, Placebo has continually defied categorization, throwing off initial pegs as a glam rock act to show an incredible diversity. You’ll hear this legacy unfold over the course of these albums and through the many bands that have been influenced by Placebo.
