How To Move Your Rdio Playlists To Spotify

Ever since I learned the best music site on the internet is being acquired by Pandora, I’ve been sick about losing the amazing Christmas playlist that I’ve been carefully curating for years. Thankfully, Rdio and Spotify have made it really easy to export and re-import my playlists. Here’s how to do it.


Pandora Aims To Beat The Boredom With Its New Thumbprint Radio Station

Faltering internet radio Pandora’s newest effort to reinvent itself is a newly personalised radio station called Thumbprint Radio, which is based on all of the thumbs you’ve ever given the service.


Google Play Music's Family Plan Is Live, And It's A Great Deal

Briefly: You can soon sign up for the Google Play Music family plan announced earlier this spring. Rolling out in Australia over the next few days, $US15 ($21) connects up to six accounts to Google Play Music. Considering Google Play Music ordinarily costs $12 per month, this is a great deal. (Although, the logistics of splitting the cost between 6 people are impractical.) I should note that both Spotify and Apple Music offer similarly priced plans.


Spotify Is The Best Streaming Music Service

There, I said it.

As countless Rdio fans sit back helplessly as their accounts go dark, it’s time to be blunt. Spotify continues to outpace its growing army of competitors, and if you’re going to spend money on a streaming music service, you should sign up for Spotify Premium. Or save a few bucks and get the free version, because it’s pretty damn great, too!


Rdio Will Be Cancelling Subscriptions Starting Tomorrow

Briefly: As you’ve probably heard if you’re an Rdio user, the music-streaming service is shuttering its doors. The fate of the company’s assets is clear — sold for $US75 million to Pandora — but the wind-down process has now been outlined.


Adele's 25 Will Not Be On Spotify, Apple Music Or Other Streaming Services

Adele’s highly-anticipated new record 25 will not be available on Spotify, according to the company.


Here's How To Export Your Rdio Playlists

The news that Pandora is buying bankrupt Rdio is very sad indeed, and leaves many of us wondering what will happen to the Dad Rock playlists we spent years perfecting. Here’s a way to export them, for now.


YouTube Music Is Breathtakingly Pointless

The new YouTube Music app is a failure. YouTube is quietly one of the most powerful forces in digital music, and this — THIS! — is the app that’s supposed to change everything. It changes nothing.


Adele's 'Hello' Has Broken All Records By Selling One Million Downloads In One Week

Adele’s remake of Lionel Richie’s classic ballad has hit a milestone that has not been achieved by any other song in history. According to Nielsen Music, the singer sold one million downloads of the song in just seven days.


Filter Your Spotify Playlists For Easier Music Management

Playlists are at the core of the Spotify experience, but it’s all too easy to end up with an abundance of overlong ones — after all, once you start compiling the very best disco tracks from Spotify’s 30m+ track library it’s difficult to stop. Fortunately, the desktop apps include a simple playlist filtering option, though it’s pretty well hidden.
