Rdio offers the user the ability to listen in high quality all available tracks (many also of Italian artists) all of them can be managed by a graphical user interface simple and functional, and above all without advertising. Once you create an account we can use the service for 6 months at the end of which, or abandon the service or we can choose one of two services: 4,99 euro per month will allow us to have unlimited streaming via the web while 9.99 € we can also download music from mobile devices through dedicated mobile application.
