Rdio and Shazam partner for the South African market

Good news, Rdio loyalists: Spotify users aren’t the only ones who are now able to stream music for the unbeatable price of free. Presumably as a result of the Cumulus Media deal revealed earlier this year, Shazam iOS and Android customers can now listen to the entirety of the service’s streaming library via the Rdio app by simply clicking on the “Listen Free on Rdio” link within the app.

According to Rdio, those interstitials will consist of “new feature announcements, messages from partner brands, notifications about exclusive content and other helpful tips.” Of course, if commercials aren’t your thing, you can still cough up R60 a month to get rid of them courtesy of Rdio’s Unlimited service which includes web and mobile streaming. Combined with free mobile stations and lots more supported countries including South Africa, Rdio and Shazam are certainly helping to make the streaming music space a whole lot more competitive.
