Online listening platform Radioplayer has introduced a new car mode to its iPhone and Android apps.
The mode, already in use on other apps such as TuneIn, allows users to choose their favourite stations, where the app will automatically select low-bitrate streams.
The update also makes the app compatible with Ford’s new ‘SYNC AppLink’ which allows voice commands on Android at the moment, with iOS coming soon. A new design is also included along with a trending sections.
Radioplayer MD Michael Hill: “Radio remains the number one entertainment option in cars, because it’s a great multi-tasking medium. We think there’s huge scope for improving the in-car radio experience even further.”
Listeners will also have access to ‘series-linking’ for catch-up programmes, a feature previously only available on the tablet app.
Radioplayer is now also available in Belgium and Norway, with several more countries considering adoption.
