New iHeartRadio app now with music, podcasts and entertainment
iHeartRadio Australia has announced the launch of My Favourites Radio as part of its new app, giving audiences a way to explore and discover new music, podcasts and entertainment.
The new app, which is powered by its partnership with Optus, promise to be more personalised, offering users the latest updates as they are rolled out globally.
iHeartRadio Australia’s CD Brett “Nozz” Nossiter said: “I’m very excited to launch My Favourites Radio as part of our latest app release. With live and custom radio, podcasts and topical pop up stations, this really places iHeartRadio at the nexus of audio entertainment, putting listeners in control. And we have even bigger enhancements to come in 2017!”
The My Favourites Radio feature puts listeners in control, allowing them to “create their ultimate listening experience” by combining their favourite songs, artists and genres into a personalised station that continues to refine and update based on user habits.
Geraint Davies COO of iHeartRadio Australia said: “This is a huge release with new feature updates and improved integration with wearable technology like the Samsung Gear devices and Apple Watch. As this is a new and updated code base, it will enable us to more easily add new app-based platforms when they appear.”
The new iHeartRadio app is available to download on iOS and Android and is data-free with select Optus mobile plans.
