Spotify is great at what it does, but it’s not a replacement for radio. When it comes to discovering new music, DJs beat algorithms every time.
This is just one of the reasons why we love Audials Play, the huge music and audio app with many functions from Audials Radio Software. It is a portal to more radio stations than you could hear in a thousand lives.
There are over 100,000 in total, 36,000 in the US alone, all in MP3 and AAC formats. With Audials Play you can not only browse and tune in these radio stations as you wish, but also record songs and shows from them. Every imaginable genre is covered, from pop to Christian rock.
You can search or search Audials Play by country, genre, artist or whatever, and the search tool is incredibly powerful. If you search for a specific artist – for example Bob Dylan – you will get a list of all the stations that are currently playing a Bob Dylan song, as well as a timer showing how long that song has been playing. It’s like magic.
And if you select an artist whose songs aren’t playing anywhere at that particular time, you’ll still get a list of the stations that play them frequently and access a new source of new music. Whenever you find a fantastic new station, you can add it to your favorites list.
That’s just the radio stuff. Audials Play also contains a comprehensive database with more than 300,000 podcasts on all topics that deal with millions of current and previous episodes.
The Audials Play PC app allows you to wirelessly download music from your PC to listen to on your device, and listen to music, podcasts and radio stations in your car via Android Auto or the app’s own car mode when your vehicle isn’t. t do not support bluetooth.
Best of all, Audials Play is free with no ads. Download it right now on Android or iOS.
