Rdio has announced that it will cease operations in one week.

The news arrives less than a month after the company announced it had been purchased by rival streaming service Pandora for $75 million.

“As part of the acquisition, the Rdio service will be shutting down worldwide on December 22, 2015 at approximately 5pm PST,” read an email to subscribers.

Until then, subscribers can use the new Farewell feature to look back on their history and export data including playlists, favourites and comments.

In a statement issued in November, Rdio said it is “proud to have created an innovative and critically acclaimed global music streaming service.” [via Engadget]
