If you’ve been thinking about giving music service Rdio a try but don’t want to pay the $4.99 per month desktop fee or the $9.99 fee for unlimited desktop and mobile access then you’re in luck. Rdio has begun rolling out a free 7-day trial offer to anyone who syncs their Facebook account to the platform.
Before users jump in there are few things users need to know however before moving forward:
1. Streaming full songs is only available through the desktop web interface during the trial, while the Rdio iOS app will simply play 30 second song previews.
2. Rdio has decided to play a limited number or duration of songs under the free account program, although they have not stipulated directly what that hard cap is.
Users who believe a browser work around will allow for iPad, Android or iPhone devices should be warned that the company’s system is not fooled by simple work arounds.
While not the most robust music streaming service trial we’ve seen it’s still a decent way to see if the Rdio platform is right for your needs.
