Pandora plans to make Rdio part of its music empire
Pandora and Rdio are two of the major forces in the streaming music industry. It's a growing market now that CDs have become part of the past. Yes, sales of them still exist, just not what they once were.
Now Pandora is planning to acquire Rdio and consolidate the two services. It's an interesting proposition and will certainly have implications. Pandora and Rdio are different in certain ways. Pandora simply lets you create stations based on taste and does an excellent job of it. Rdio allows for streaming individual songs.
"We’d like to update the entire Rdio community regarding today's announcement that Pandora plans to acquire Rdio's innovative technology and critically-acclaimed design", the service states in a brief announcement.
Rdio promises no service interruption, which is obviously good for customers. It also pledges that more updates on this process will be forthcoming in the weeks ahead.
The company wraps up by saying "We thank you for your continued support over the years and look forward to bringing you even better music experiences in the future as part of the Pandora team".
