There are a virtually endless number of ways to listen to music these days. You can stream them, listen to the radio, watch music videos, and the old methods (like vinyl) are still humming along as they ever were. Sometimes, though, people like to just hit play and let it go without having to manage every little thing like playlists, play order, or anything like that. Radio isn’t as popular as it used to be. However, it’s still a great way to discover new music and just chill out. For those people, we’d like to present the best radio apps for Android!
- One Stop Radio Silvia – Free
One Stop Radio Silvia – It’s an application that lets you listen to radio stations around the world.
You do not have to install an application for each radio station, now you have it all in the same place.
Plus if your favorite post is not in our radio list, you can contact us and we will add it as soon as possible.
We update the list of radio stations daily.
The application works even when the screen is closed or accesses other applications, so you can continue your work quietly and listen to your favorite radio station.
- Google Play Music – Pay
Google Play Music is a music streaming service. On top of the streaming, Google maintains a metric ton of playlists covering every genre, almost every decade, and even most moods. So if you’re looking for 90s hits, music to play at BBQs, or just a good rock and roll station, Google Play has you covered. Likely even more so than actual radio apps. People using the free version can get the radio stuff, while the music streaming and additional features come with the $9.99/month price. It’s not actual radio, but it’s close enough.
- iHeartRadio – Pay
iHeartRadio is one of the most popular solutions for radio apps. It has a large selection of stations to listen to, including FM stations and iHeartRadio’s own stations mixed in. You can find playlists for almost any mood, in almost any genre, and seasonal playlists for things like Christmas or Halloween. It’s completely free to use (supported by in-streaming ads) which is another good bonus. For those who want it, iHeartRadio also comes with Chromecast and Android Wear support. You can get a slightly better experience for $5.99 per month. You can go All Access for $12.99 per month for even more additional features, including on-demand song playing.
- Pandora Radio – Pay
The venerable Pandora Radio is probably the most popular of all radio apps. The app made streaming random music mainstream and has enjoyed quite a bit of success over the years. Instead of focusing on specific stations, Pandora lets users create their own stations. You can make them around your favorite artist, music genre, or even song. Pandora does offer playlists to stream, but most people just create their own. You can also get a premium subscription to remove ads for $4.99 per month. You can also go for the full $9.99 per month for Pandora Premium and get on-demand song plays along with other features.
- Spotify – Pay
Spotify is another music streaming app that has put a larger focus on radio-style streaming over the last couple of years. On top of having genre, mood, and artist-specific stations, Spotify also curates unique lists like “Worldwide top 50” and playlists with new music you specifically haven’t heard yet. The free version gets you pretty much all of the radio features with the $9.99 subscription cost removing advertising and giving you additional features. It’s one of the best out there. It’s also noting at this point that other streaming apps work well. That includes Apple Music, Deezer, and others.
