Rdio bites some of Pandora’s classic features to increase music discoverability

Rdio is following Spotify’s introduction of its Discover feature this week with some new music discoverability features of its own. The streaming music service announced five new features plus a redesigned now playing section that applies the design of its mobile apps to the desktop. New users to Rdio will now be greeted by a list of friends that they have on the service, as well as a list of influential accounts to follow. Additionally, Rdio is making it easier to find other users to follow through a curated list of popular accounts and users, just like what’s already available in Rdio’s iOS and Android apps.
