Following Spotify’s announcement of unlimited desktop streaming, Rdio announced Friday that it will now offer unlimited streaming through its website. The free Web-based service is ad-supported, which is a new move for the service.
Rdio previously stuck to a subscription model of $9.99 per month for unlimited listening. Users could start off with a free trial, but once they hit a certain number of listening hours or had their account for six months, they had to pay up, make a new account, or go elsewhere.
On a Web-based, ad-supported account, users will hear intermittent “in-stream messaging,” including “messages from partner brands, notifications about exclusive content, and other helpful tips.”
