Apple may have shuttered cloud music service Lala last week, but a new music startup that stores your music in the cloud launched yesterday, and it's poised to become a great alternative to now-defunct Lala. Rdio is a subscription-based music service, charging $5 to $10 per month for an unlimited amount of music. Users who pay the full amount will be able to stream music from their computers or from their iPhone or BlackBerry devices; Android phones will be supported soon.
Besides listening to your own music, Rdio contains social aspects as well. Find out more after the break.
With Rdio, you can find and follow friends, check out their playlists, and find the most popular music within your network. Rdio is currently available by invitation only but has plans to become widely available later this year. If you're like me and listen to a ton of music at work, during your commute, and at home, a Rdio subscription might be worth it. And I enjoy checking out what's popular in my network of friends — it's an easy way to discover new music. To be notified when Rdio is widely available, simply sign up on its site.
