Digster.FM has expanded to social music discovery service Rdio. Digster already includes social media support for Facebook, Twitter, Foursquare and Google, so a Digster Rdio app seems like an inevitable thing, given Rdio's social media bent. The only streaming music service Digster used before this was Spotify, and it contains Spotify playlists from both UMG employees and artist-curated playlists. Now Rdio users can get in on the action as well.
"Rdio's innovation and recognition as a leader in social music makes it a perfect fit for Digster," said Mitch Rotter, Senior Vice President, Marketing & Product Development at Digster.
Rdio was developed by the creators of Kazaa and Skype, which are Janus Friis and Niklas Zennström. Rdio has licensing with all four major record labels and multiple indie labels, with social media tools to share music. Rdio prices run $9.99 for mobile and Web access, and Web access is $4.99 per month, with both streaming and offline listening and a library of over 12 million songs. The Rdio name is a combination of the words radio and audio, pronounced r-dee-o.
