Spotify Makes Grab For Rdio Users With Simple Music Import Tool

December 15, 2015 - Written By Justin Diaz

There are so many ways to get your dose of music these days, many of them which come in the form of streaming music services. With so many options available to users though, it stands to reason that not all of them will be able to stick around as the competition grows more fierce. Such is the case with streaming service Rdio who was recently acquired by Pandora as of last month. Because of this, many people will likely want to make sure they have their Rdio library of music on hand and backed up, and Rdio has made this as simple as possible by allowing users to create a ZIP file of all of their music.

Spotify seems to be eager to grab up some of Rdio’s former customers, as they have just provided a super simple and easy to use tool which allows Rdio users to import all of their music over to Spotify. The tool will take the Rdio ZIP file in a simple drag and drop motion from the desktop, all users have to do is open up the tool’s website and drop the file on the web page. Alternatively, there is also a button to select a file if it isn’t on the desktop, which could pose an easier method for some if they have to navigate to a specific folder to find the file they need.

If you were on the fence about using Spotify as a possible music solution, this may help lock in a decision to subscribe, or at the very least try out their free service. It’s more likely to grab the attention of those who use to use Rdio though, as anyone who would be migrating from a completely different service would have no need at all for the import tool. One thing that might help some users opt to give Spotify a shot is that it now supports Chromecast as of the end of September, a feature that has been a long time coming and one that users have been waiting on for quite some time now. If you were an Rdio user and you have already saved your music, you can access the Spotify import tool from the source link and begin moving your library over.
