The NextRadio app, which allows users to hear, see, and interact with live, local FM radio, has now been launched for smartphones in Mexico, including an iOS version for iPhone mobile device users. The app utilizes the enabled FM chip inside select Android devices to tune to every local FM radio station. If an Android device has the FM chip enabled, NextRadio saves data and battery life compared to streaming apps and works during emergencies when power is out and cell towers are down.
“We’re thrilled that NextRadio is now available for use on both iOS and Android devices in Mexico,” said Paul Brenner, President of TagStation, which owns NextRadio. “We want to empower all users to enjoy local FM radio without having their content restricted by geographic location or choice of device.”
