Rdio users, rejoice!
The popular song-matching service, SoundHound, has updated its iOS application with the ability to connect with Rdio and add matched songs to an Rdio playlist.
As a reminder, Shazam implemented Rdio integration last December. But unlike SoundHound’s, Shazam’s implementation not only lets you play recognized tracks through Rdio, but also play back full songs without switching apps…

Last December, SoundHound picked up support for iTunes Radio letting you listen to tagged tracks on Apple’s free Internet radio service.
SoundHound 6.2 changelog:
- New: Now you can add songs to an Rdio playlist from SoundHound. Connect and your future discoveries will automatically be added.
- Pro Tip: Sign up for a SoundHound account so your search history is never lost.
The 17.0MB download requires an iPhone, iPod touch or iPad running iOS 6.1 or later.
The $6.99 paid version removes ads while adding a number of advanced features, including the ability to listen to songs you’ve identified instantly with Rdio and Spotify, or add to a playlist. Spotify playlist creation was added to SoundHound apps last February.
Other capabilities of the pro version: faster music identification, singing and humming recognition, a LiveLyrics feature, news headlines, a built-in music player, real-time Facebook and Twitter updates from artists, geotagging, iTunes links, YouTube videos, Pandora station launching and much more
