After weeks of uncertainty, we now know that Rdio will shutdown in exactly one week’s time.
In email sent to former subscribers, the company lists December 22 at approximately 5 p.m. PST as the time when its servers will stop streaming music.
“Over the course of five years, Rdio has grown to become a global community of music lovers — a place to discover, listen, and collect. We’re proud to have built that community with you,” says the email. “Thank you. We’re honored to have connected you with the music you love. And we look forward to bringing great music experiences to even more listeners in the future as part of the Pandora team.”
Earlier in the day, Rdio published a heartwarming farewell page, allowing users to reminisce about the time they spent with the service. Companies like Spotify also detailed how Rdio users can transfer their listening data to its own service.
