Beats Music and Rdio to add Chromecast support

Chromecast users will soon be able to stream their favorite tracks from Beats Music and Rdio. Google recently launced its SDK for the popular $35 dongle, which means that developers can finally "cast" their service from their apps.

Rdio and Beats Music are extremely popular audio streaming services today.

Rdio is now available in many countries while Beats Music recently launched last month. Beats even had to stop accepting new users due to traffic overload. Having the capability to stream from these two platforms will definitely boost Chromecast sales.

Beats already confirmed that its team is now working on the feature, although it did not say when it will be released. Rdio also confirmed on Twitter that it will support Chromecast. But interestingly, the tweet has been deleted.

Here's the tweet from Rdio: "Our team is already working on developing support for Chromecast. Stay tuned!"

Meanwhile, Spotify, another insanely popular music streaming service, is saying "no" to Chromecast. One user asked Spotify if it was planning to add Chromecast support.

Here's Spotify's response: "Hello everyone. The request for ChromeCast has become uncommonly popular since the product was launched so we're currently having discussions about how best to implement this. However, due to several prevailing priorities we're going to have to say 'not right now' to this idea."

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
