Popular music-streaming service Rdio has announced that its family plans now allow for five people. Previously, family plans were limited to three individual users, something that could cause a bit of tension in larger families. In a blog posting announcing the move, Rdio describes how the new family plans will work:
Here’s how it works: Designate someone in your family to have a main account, and he or she will add sub-accounts to their subscription. From there, each family member has their own Rdio Unlimited account, from which they build and control their own Collection, playlists, network of followers, and other great features.
Users still have the option of paying for membership plans that allow fewer than five participants. A two-account plan will cost US$17.99 per month, with a three-account plan costing $22.99, a four-account plan at $27.99 per month and a five-account plan at $32.99 per month.
The move is no doubt aimed at increasing Rdio’s offerings as Apple is set to unveil iTunes Radio to the public with iOS 7 later this fall.
The Rdio app for iOS is a free download.
