Windows Phone may be in distant third compared to Android and iOS, but we certainly are gaining more and more of the big name apps for our platform. When it comes to music services, we’re certainly not lacking any of the major ones out there.

We’ve got Microsoft’s own Xbox Music and other third party services like Pandora, Rdio, Spotify, Nokia Music, and more. They all compete on features and price, after that it comes down to which one you personally like better. Fans of Rdio on Windows Phone 8 should be happy as the app just picked up a big update today, let’s check it out.

It was in late February of this year that we last checked out Rdio for Windows Phone. The update back then was small and focused on improving online streaming and the interface. So what’s version 4.0 bringing to the table for Rdio? Well for one, the app has been completely rewritten.

The big focus on v4 was to get the app super stable for Windows Phone 8. The last three months of work on Rdio has focused on user feedback and completely rewriting the app. There are some new features like Facebook login, signing-out and more, but the focus was on creating a solid Windows Phone app for Rdio. Now that they’ve nailed that, they’ll work on adding new features.


What features would you like to see added to Rdio now that the app has a solid foundation to build on?

Rdio, like most music subscription services, offers different payment tiers for users. There are three plans (free, $4.99/month, $9.99/month) that have different perks and options depending on your use. Check out how it breaks down on Rdio’s pricing page.
