Internet Radio is the new in-thing today. It is taking FM radio by storm and obliviating it. There is a lot of amazing content including Spotify, Pandora, 8tracks, iHeartRadio and more to choose from today. One of the latest Internet Radio apps- Audials Radio- is here to change the way we look at them all. Here’s why.
Audials Radio Player Recorder is a simple radio app that brings together over 90,000 radio stations from across the globe and on your fingertips. This is not only limited to music radio but spans talk radio, videos, FM, AM and much more. The app sets a pre-buffer when you listen to a radio and then streams it all directly onto your Android device. You can then play it on device speakers or connect it to external speakers and more.
Working with and using this app is very simple and easy. Once you open the app, you have a plethora of stations to pick from and listen to. You may choose to continue listening without creating an account, in which case the app will not sync features between the desktop and mobile versions of the app. You can browse and pick a radio station. If you are looking for a particular one, you can search through keywords or station call letters. You can also set stations as favorites for easy and quick access. Once you pick a station, you will have to wait a few seconds for the pre-buffer. It will then start streaming your music for you.
So far, the app seems like every other Internet Radio app right? Let’s dig in deeper. Audials Radio Player Recorder has a feature called Zap that recommends radio stations based on the kind of music you listen to. All you have to do is hit the Zap button and it will automatically connect you to a radio station that will play music like what you were just listening to. Discovering new stations as per your interests could not have been made easier for you.
Audials Radio Player Recorder also comes with an inbuilt sleep timer and alarm clock. These are really simple to set up. The alarm will go off on whichever station you want- provided you are listening to it before you actually set the alarm. The sleep timer can be set to a particular time limit and will go off once that time limit is met. There is also a light and dark theme switcher and an equaliser. There is support for Chromecast and AirPlay too.
Another unique and awesome feature of this app is the recording feature. This feature allows you to record songs you hear on the radio and then listen to them whenever you like. The songs you record are stored on your device and can be treated like all other files. They will also be recognized by other music players. If you are bored of radio, you can also listen to your native music on your device using this app.
All said and done, Audials Radio Player Recorder is an excellent radio and recorder app that you will enjoy using. It can be downloaded for free from the Play Store and is surely worth a shot.
