Rdio users on Android have something pretty exciting waiting for them over on the Google Play Store. The music streaming app has been given a new update, and though this update brings a few new features with it, one of the most important is a revamped user interface. This redesign brings a cleaner feel to the whole app, and glancing over the screenshots below, we have to say it looks pretty good.
But this overhauled UI isn’t just about looks – it’s also about functionality. The folks at Rdio have added a new slide out navigation menu that you can access from anywhere in the app. Simply slide your finger to the right to uncover the menu, which is where you can check the albums that have enjoyed Heavy Rotation by the community, have a look at the top charts and new releases, or access your collection and playlists.
While the new UI looks nice, there’s also another big addition with this update: a unified player. Now you can sync your queue across your computer and mobile devices, so you can have queue with you where ever you go. You can even sync songs in progress, which means you can pause a song on your computer and pick up right where you left off on your mobile device. That’s certainly an awesome feature, and we’re guessing Rdio subscribers are going to like it a lot.
The update is available now on the Google Play Store [download link], so you can get this redesigned user interface right this minute. If you’ve never used Rdio before and you think you might like to give it a spin, be warned that it costs $10 a month to subscribe. The upside to that subscription fee is that you get to stream music without hearing an ads, so keep that in mind. Are any of you Rdio subscribers?
