Rdio Help Center


Last Updated: Dec 17, 2013

How do I share music? 

Share music by linking directly to the album or posting it to your Facebook or Twitter account. You can also recommend an album, song or artist directly to another Rdio user. 

To share, hover over the action menu and select Share this Album or Song. To share an artist, view the artist's page and click Share this Artist below the band photo on the right sidebar. 

When you share music with another Rdio user, your recommendations will appear in his or her Notifications center.

Where can I view my Notifications?

Your Notifications page displays recent interactions with others on Rdio. For example, when a friend follows you, recommends a song for you, or subscribes to a playlist of yours, you'll be notified here.

When you have unread Notifications, you'll see in the top righthand corner of your account.
Head to rdio.com/notifications to view your Notifications.

Can I link directly to an album, artist or song? 

Use the action menu and select Share this Album or Song.  Use the link in the top right of the Share menu to link to the album or song. 

How do I post music to Facebook or Twitter? 

Share music on Twitter and Facebook by linking your accounts to Rdio. Allow Rdio to connect to your accounts by managing your External Settings. You can also use the action menu next to a song or album by selecting Share this Album, and clicking on Connect next to Facebook or Twitter.

Can I embed Rdio music in my player?

You can share music from Rdio on your blog or website with a customizable embedded music player. Click the Plus button next to any song, album or playlist and select Share. Then click on Embed.

Copy and paste the embed code where you want to embedded player to show up.


Click Customize if you’d like to select from several different sizes of embedded players.

Can the embeds play automatically?

Yup. Just add ?autoplay to the URLs of the embeds.

For example:

<object width="500" height="250"><param name="movie" value="http://rd.io/e/Q1IjXNT3"></param><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"></param><embed src="http://rd.io/e/Q1IjXNT3" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true" width="500" height="250"></embed></object </p>


<object width="500" height="250"><param name="movie" value="http://rd.io/e/Q1IjXNT3?autoplay"></param><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"></param><embed src="http://rd.io/e/Q1IjXNT3?autoplay" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true" width="500" height="250"></embed></object>

Remember, the URL appears twice, once in a <param>  and once in an <embed>. If you're embedding using something like SWFobject you won’t need to do the steps above.
