I woke up this morning to find a sexy update to the Rdio Mac application. Rdio has updated their Mac application (now version 2.01) to include better fullscreen support, some performance fixes and other boring stuff, but two new additions are pretty nifty. First, Rdio now lets you hit Command-F to open the search field so you can easily narrow down your artists and album searches without using the mouse. Second, Volume settings now save beteween application sessions, meaning that the volume won’t reset every time you close and re-open the Rdio application.
Additionally, the new in browser version of the application is built to look and feel more like the Mac application. Users can also add entire ablums to playlists, as well as some new social features. The OS X version of the application also users 32 percent less processor power, thank goodness.
For those not in the know, Rdio is a music streaming service much like Spotify. Personally I prefer it to Spotify, so I recommend checking it out. Rdio has a free 7 day trial for their streaming service. It’s pretty nifty. The service is available in the US, Canada, France, Germany, Brazil, Australia, Spain, Portugal, and the UK as well as New Zealand.
