Samsung phones integration for RadioDNS

The RadioDNS Hybrid Radio software is now integrated into three Samsung Galaxy smartphones as standard, marking a significant development for the radio industry.

It’s the first time the functionality has been included by a manufacturer, meaning the Galaxy Express 2 LTE, the Galaxy Core Advance, and the Galaxy Grand 2 will now offer an enhanced radio experience.

These smartphones are available now on Vodafone and their affiliated networks in Europe, and will also be available in Asia.

RadioDNS adds visuals, interaction and automatic switching from FM radio to internet streaming depending on the quality of the FM signal. Any radio station using the open RadioDNS standards of RadioVIS and RadioEPG will be able to provide an improved listening experience on these Galaxy smartphones, and many other devices supporting the global RadioDNS standards.

Nick Piggott, the Chair of RadioDNS told RadioToday: “This is a landmark for RadioDNS Hybrid Radio, and an exceptional opportunity for radio broadcasters to connect with listeners on their smartphones using broadcast radio. I hope that many radio stations will seize this chance to show that they can make broadcast radio as interesting to use as streaming apps on the smartphone”.
