Porto, Portugal – myTuner Radio team has been working hard during the last months, to give our users the ultimate experience when it comes to listening to the radio, to podcasts and music. Therefore, we are proud to announce that version 6 of myTuner Radio is now live for iOS and Android platforms, bringing you exciting new features and a revamped design. With myTuner Radio, users from any part of the world (even when they are abroad) can listen to more than 50,000 live AM, FM and Online radio stations from over 200 countries/territories and to 1 million podcasts.
We are music lovers, so our first and most relevant effort in this new version, was to improve the radio and music listening experience inside the app. On iOS 11, in all the radio stations that show which songs are being played, users can listen to the full songs from the beginning and add them to playlists. We also give our users the possibility to listen to samples of the songs that played on the radio, so users can discover new hits and favorite songs to listen to. It’s a full integration with Apple Music that users will surely appreciate, that brings together the experience of listening to live radio (AM, FM and Online) with the experience of listening to music (1).
(1) Listening to full songs requires an Apple Music subscription.
Also on iOS, CarPlay has been added to the featured options of myTuner Radio (an app for the Apple TV and Apple Watch were already offered in the previous releases). This extends the possibilities of listening to the radio and to podcasts, to over 200 car models and known aftermarket car audio systems, that represent millions of cars sold every year. Android Auto is also supported since myTuner Radio’s version 5.
Regarding the new features for Android, we should highlight the possibility of listening to offline podcasts. Users can download their favorite podcast episodes and listen to them anytime and anywhere, even without any Wifi/data connection, for instance in airplane mode.
Since most users prefer to listen to their local radio stations and local podcasts, we know how important the local language can be (not only for contents, but also for the usage the app), and this is why we’ve made a complete revamp in the user’s experience of the app. That’s why we added 7 additional languages (now the app supports 20 different languages). The UI was not forgotten and we made a few tweaks that will, for sure, enhance the discoverability of contents. Namely, the “hamburger” design was replaced on iPhones and Android Smartphones by a more straightforward experience with tab buttons.
This new version brings an even larger database of radio stations, with more than 50,000 radio stations available in 200 countries/territories, which is continually being updated on a daily basis, to make sure users always get to listen to their favorite radio stations. The myTuner community truly deserves the constant effort that we are making, since we have reached an astounding number of 40 million historic users!
