iHeartRadio: More than just a radio platform
iHeartRadio, iHeartMedia’s digital radio platform, is the No.1 all-in one digital audio service with over a billion downloads to date: but it’s more than just a radio platform. iHeartRadio lets its listeners listen to the music they love, unlimited streaming, access to thousands of AM and FM radio stations that also include comedy, news, sports talk, and podcasts all in one app. The company also works in live concerts and events, syndication, music research services and independent media representations.
After launching in 2008, it was the fastest digital service to reach 20 million users and reached 90 million users faster than any other radio or digital music service which impressively grew faster than Facebook. It’s a highly interactive platform, adding features that give radio stations real time feedback while also creating personalized music experiences for music listeners. Here are some distinguishable features:
Available Almost Everywhere
They’re available online and integrated with over 90 devices in cars, in home, online, across mobile devices, wearables, gaming consoles and more.
Play Free Artist Stations and Build your Personalized Station
The platform lets their listeners create personalized music stations based on their personal preferences using their library of songs and playlists of all genres, which is where your music will be discoverable.
The ‘My Favorites Radio’ Station creates a free personalized station for users based on the music they love.
Just like Spotify, they have a premium feature that include certain perks, free of any advertisements:
- Listen any song from playlists or radio offline using the download feature
