Beats Music and Rdio to add Chromecast support

Beats Music and Rdio are reportedly planning to add Chromecast support. The question now is when.

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."
