The radio industry’s RadioApp is now available via Apple’s CarPlay and Google’s Android Auto, allowing consumers to stream more than 250 Australian radio stations in the car.
The release of the latest version of the free app allows users to view and play their favourite radio stations through their car’s infotainment system. Users will also be able to view a list of nearby radio stations based on their location.
Commercial Radio Australia CEO Joan Warner said listeners can simply install RadioApp on their Apple or Android smartphones and connect their phone to a compatible car infotainment system to make the most of the new feature.
“Through RadioApp, listeners can easily discover local stations while travelling, access their favourites list, and control the app safely through their connected car dashboard,” she said.
“Consumers today expect freedom and connectivity, and we want to make sure they can listen to their favourite local radio stations however they want and wherever they are.
“Now users will be able to take RadioApp on the road, with a smooth transition from the phone to the car dashboard.”
RadioApp allows listeners to tune in to commercial, ABC, SBS and DAB+ digital radio stations across the country, as well as create a favourites list and swipe to see what’s playing on other stations.
Its alarm and sleep-timer function allows users to fall sleep and wake up to their preferred station, and the app has been downloaded 140,000 times since it was launched in November last year.
