Update as of 6/28/2022: The Live365 app now has Apple CarPlay and Android Auto connectivity.

Live365 is thrilled to unveil our overhauled mobile apps! Both the iOS and Android app have been given a major update, which includes new settings and navigation tools, the ability to create “Playlists” of stations, and a handful of bug fixes – all improving the listening experience via the apps.

We know our broadcasters and listeners are eager to know what's new, so let's get into it:

  • Continue Listening - The app now remembers your last played station, and will prompt you upon opening the app if you would like to continue listening to the same station.

  • Playlists - You can now create playlists of your favorite stations within the "Stations" tab.

  • New Share Functionality - Easily share your favorite stations on any social media or messaging platform.

  • Add to Cart - You can now purchase songs on the Last Played list directly from the Apple Music (iTunes) store via the "Add to cart" button.

  • Search History - The app remembers your recent activity in the search bar and displays a list of suggestions to save you time.

  • Theme Customization - You can now choose between the Light and Dark theme, or use your device's theme.

  • Hide Station - Hide specific stations which are of no interest to you so you no longer see them. Hidden stations can easily be brought back into view at anytime via the app settings.

  • Storage & Cache - Remove the stored image cache from your phone with a press of a button.
