Chromecast development?

Craig Popovich Jul 25, 2013 12:40PM PDT

Will Rdio develop integration with Google Chromecast? I pre-ordered one already because it looks like a great product to stream content. Because All Access is already integrated into Chromecast, it would make sense that Rdio would too because it looks like it would be a very useful feature to have on Rdio.

I would absolutely love to see Rdio fully support Chromecast from all their applications. This is a compelling feature that makes Google Play All Access look like a very attractive competing service.

Hi Craig,

Thanks for letting us know that this is a platform you’d like to see Rdio support. While I can't comment on our future plans for supporting specific platforms, we’re definitely keeping track of your interest.

@Travis Even just a now playing interface pushed from the phone. They could probably even use the current online now playing interface with some tweaks.

Here's another vote for Rdio Chromcast support.

I stream a Chrome Tab with Rdio in it to the device now, but thats a poor replacement for having the service work out-right.

Support for chromecast is essential or switching to Google all access becomes tempting. I love my RDIO android app but being able to push music to my surround sound system is a killer feature for me.

Here to add my voice of support for this! My wife and I use Rdio daily, both at home and work, and we love it. We’ve casted a tab on occasion, but this is a mediocre work-around at best.

To be frank, we’re very happy customers already, but native support on Chromecast would be immensely appreciated!

Please, PLEASE support chromecast guys. It can be as simple as just displaying the album art / album & song title on the screen. Nothing fancy. Hell, I'd even be fine with a blank screen as long as I could get rdio working through my living room speaker setup easily.

Please! :)

I'm not going to lie - this is a key feature. If Rdio doesn't offer any sort of plan for integration soon, I'll be forced to switch to Google Play music.

Hello,

I'm paying for Rdio, and streaming free from Pandora simply to use the Chromecast. Google music = same cost + Chromecast support today.

I don't really want to switch, but without even an ETA to think about, it's hard not to move over.

Just adding my +1 to the list of people who would like to see native Chromecast support.

For all those looking for a workaround, one option is to have Rdio open and playing in a Google Chrome browser tab and then casting that tab. See this Google help document for more details: https://support.google.com/chromecast/answer/3228332?hl=en

It's been 2 months since an Rdio employee has commented on this post. Can we please get an update from you guys? I understand not being able to commit to a timeline, but is this even in the active development queue? I really love Rdio and being able to walk in the door of my house after work, press one button on my phone and continue my playlist on my TV would be awesome! Pandora/Songza are just not cutting it...

So here I am, listening to a radio queue on Google Play Music All Access (now that's one hell of a long name) casting from my phone to my TV simply because Rdio doesn't support it. I'm in the middle of my 30-day free trial at the end of which I'll have to decide where my 10-bucks-a-month are gonna go. If by then there's still no word from the Rdio dev team y'all know who's gonna be getting my money, right?

I need Rdio for Chromecast so much! Just started my membership on rdio and realized it doesn't have compatibility with the dongle. Since I'm just experimenting the streaming platforms, maybe I'll change to Beats Music since they promised a soon release to chromecast. ;)

Please provide a date. Once you lose me you'll never get me back. Btw, you are losing new customers. I'd plug you if I could, but without an ability to use at home, $10 is expensive for just the gym.
