Aptly titled Stations, the feature sits in the left-hand side navigation bar in the desktop and web interface. From here, users can listen to a range of channels based around popular albums, artists or alternatively their own personalised station.

This latter option is tailored to your tastes, and the content is determined from your listening history. The personalised station can be set to a few different levels from Familiar to Adventurous, which opens up the station to a new range of songs you may not already know.

Should you not like any of the options presented to you, songs can be voted up or down for further customisation. Stations has been rolled out now to all Rdio users.

Also launched this week in the Australian and New Zealand market was iHeartRadio, which lets users listen to live radio stations on the Australian Radio Network or stations of their own.
