Can not listen to the radio? It was without counting on the Google Play Store, which offers you as usual a multitude of applications to improve your daily life or simply to distract you. We have selected several apps that allow you to listen to the radio.

General applications for listening to radio


No doubt, TuneIn is one of the best radio listening applications: it is by default on some Android devices. By selecting from over 70,000 radio stations, you can add stations to favorites, use them to wake up or fall asleep, all in multitasking: convenient to listen to the radio while continuing to use its smartphone. We especially appreciate his widget and its icon in the notification bar, both very well constructed.

FM Radio

Radio FM does not have the neat and pleasant look of TuneIn, but that does not make it less performant. Its catalog of radio stations is huge and is sorted by country. France has no fewer than 1415 stations listed. You can also participate in the project by inserting new radios into the directory.

You can select your stations by searching by country, by genre, and of course save your favorite stations to favorites by simply pressing the heart.

The entire universe of radio opens up to you. The application gives you access to many radios, originating from many countries or from the wonderful world of Internet. Maybe you are only interested in one or two broadcasts and not the entire radio station? No problem, the application also offers you to manage your podcasts. Plus, you can also configure a timer and alarm clock in the application itself.

If you have your small preference, the vast majority of radio stations have their own application. No need to search among a huge directory when you just need to open a single application. Plus, it will allow you to listen more easily to your favorite podcast show. You can find France Inter, RTL, or Europe 1 on the Google Play Store.
