When the competition from Spotify, Apple and new contenders doesn't let up, it's time to try something different. That's what Rdio is doing, with a new $3.99 subscription service, Select, which will let users stream from radio stations (sans ads) with unlimited skips as well as daily (offline) access to a maximum of 25 songs. According to Rdio CEO Anthony Bay, this number is "more than most users download in a day, so we feel it's enough" -- but will the offer be enough to attract new users away from the rivals?

Bay told BuzzFeed that he sees the new service as "coach" when everyone else is only offering business class. We've noticed that the service has already gone live inside the Android app, and it'll reportedly open for business officially tomorrow, in the US, Australia, Canada, New Zealand, India, and South Africa. For now, Rdio's own press site doesn't offer any more details, but we've reached out for more.
