iHeartRadio launches a Windows 10 app
Windows 10 has been live for a few weeks now and is getting a lot of attention, deservedly so. Most users seem happy to either be away from Windows 8 or to have avoided it all together. Now it's a matter of getting the apps which are the lifeblood of any ecosystem, both PC and mobile.
To that end, music streaming giant iHeartRadio is announcing its Windows 10 compatible app. "iHeartRadio for Windows 10 will include its signature, customizable listening features known to iHeartRadio's audience of more than 70 million registered users as well as new innovations optimized exclusively for Microsoft Corp.'s most personal, productive and secure operating system yet", the company announces.
The app comes with all of the usual iHeartRadio features, including creating custom playlists. There's the ability to stream live radio -- "Windows 10 users will have instant access to thousands of live radio stations from across the country covering Pop, Country, Hip-Hop, R&B, Alternative, Rock, Talk, News, Sports and Comedy". There's also podcasts and customers can even share their stations via Facebook.
"Together with iHeartRadio, Windows 10 will provide people with a personal and productive experience with instant access to their favorite music and entertainment along with new innovations like Cortana, Microsoft Edge and the Xbox app" says Microsoft's Todd Brix, general manager of the Windows Store.
You can grab the new app for the new operating system right in the Windows Store. Just try not to disturb your neighbors.
