When I opened Rdio today, I saw a link to the message following message: Important information about your Rdio account. I learned about the beginning of their end a couple of days ago through sad colleagues and friends on Twitter. I started using Rdio in 2012 after a recommendation by Andrew Spittle, and I’ve had fun listening to new music.
Gary Pendergast wrote about replacing Rdio. Referring to his post, our three must have items are:
- Offline sync to mobile.
- Ability to play from my Mac.
- Family accounts.
Switching from Rdio to Apple Music might mean scrobbling to my Last.fm account will be inconsistent, which makes me sad because I’ve been tracking since 2007. 😢
On July 8, 2015, Florian Eckerstorfer posted, “Apple Music and Last.fm: Does it Scrobble?“. I have Last.fm installed on my Mac, and I just installed QuietScrob – Background Last.fm Scrobbler. Fingers crossed.
