Apple has recently launched its Apple Music service along with a curated radio station— Beats 1, which is garnering a lot of attention from the rival services such as Spotify and Rdio. In order to combat Apple Music’s growing popularity, Rdio has come up with more and more curated stations that offer better individual-selected tunes.

Rdio is partnering with various artists and record labels and is also adding stations to cater to a wider audience in more countries around the world. It has added new stations to Canada, US, and UK, these countries already had curated stations. The new countries that can now listen to Rdio are India, Singapore, Malaysia, Australia, Mexico, Brazil, Thailand, Hong Kong, Philippines, and Indonesia. Rio claims that these new stations are free of cost and unlimited.

The app has gone through much overhaul, its old ’tastemakers’ segment has been replaced by latest “influencers” stations. The “influencers” will be playing handpicked songs from the individual users and groups that is in partnership with Rdio’s in-house music team. One can find these latest additions in the stations section of Rdio.

The new labels that have joined Rdio are jazz label Blue Note, Burger Records, XL Recordings, Glassnote Records, and James Murphy’s DFA Records.
