    Hello.

    I think this is for Europe only, since I believe Rdio is not used in the US (Slacker is).

    Today I got this email from Rdio:

    This email was sent to me because I have another Rdio account on top of Tesla´s, which I was using home.

    Now I wonder: is this going to affect the Rdio service with our car as well?

    Anyone knows?

    Got the same e-mail, since I had registered a free account with Rdio (never used it).

    It says they were aquried by Pandora...

    Time for Tesla to step up their game and start offering and App store, even if in the beginning maybe it will be just Tesla's in-house created apps, such as Spotify...

    Hopefully Tesla can agree a deal with Spotify as a replacement.

    And SPOTIFY it is.

    I just received and email from Tesla (I won´t copy-paste it here since it is in Norwegian) saying that an OTA SW update later today will bring us Spotify - as a replacement for Rdio, which is expiring tomorrow (Dec 22nd).

    Great news! :biggrin:

    I will be impressed if I receive Spotify before Rdio stops and it works well. Hasn't happened yet...

    2.9.68 is rolling out, and reportedly it has Spotify (for the designated European and Asian regions only, sadly).

    And Rdio is down indeed now, Dec 23d. But still no OTA SW update available to replace it with Spotify...

    I wonder how they roll out SW updates? Why some cars get them earlier and others later?

    About this
    Several reasons they roll it out slowly
    1. Mistakes happen, if only 100 cars are affected instead of 100'000+ thats better
    2. Bandwidth.

    With the version 7.0 update they pushed it out to all cars in Europe in one night. I hope that they quickly push out the update.

    It´s just very strange they send an email to explain Rdio will be replaced by Spotify with an OTA SW update, and then the rollout is slow.

    Complaining about all this is a bit of a "1stworldproblems" hashtag thing, I know, I know...

    You will find the mail on Teslarati.com (english translated version from Norway).
    But no info on dates.
