Rdio to shut down streaming service on 22 December 

Monday 21 December 2015 | 08:52 CET | News
Music streaming service Rdio has announced that it will officially shut down on 22 December, around a month after it announced the sale of its technology and intellectual property to rival company Pandora for USD 75 million. In a blog post the company said it had created a site to allow users to download a list of their Rdio favourites and playlists in various formats for importing into other services. Last month Pandora said it would offer many members of Rdio's team roles at the company and that it expected to offer an expanded Pandora listening experience by late 2016.
