As of December 22 at 5pm, Rdio will be shutting down its streaming service. The company was recently acquired by Pandora, and wrote on their company website:
"Rdio is being acquired, and the service is shutting down worldwide on December 22. We're excited to bring great music experiences to even more listeners in the future as part of the Pandora team."
We're honored to have connected you with the music you love. We know you want to find a home for that music, so we're providing ways for you to take it with you.
After logging in with your Rdio account, you will be able to download an archive of your collection and take a look back at your life on Rdio."
It's an extra thoughtful treat that Rdio is allowing everyone to move their mixtapes. Thanks for the years of service.
Spotify, a competitor in the music streaming space, quickly built an import tool so you can save those Rdio playlists, and don't lose all your hard work. Check out the Spotify Rdio importer.
Update: Rhapsody, considered the grandaddy of streaming services, has also issued a Rdio playlist import tool, so you have another option to save your Rdio favorites.
