"We know that hundreds of thousands of you already enjoy listening to TUNEIN in the car, and TODAY we're excited to announce a new feature called 'Car Mode' that will make this experience easier and safer with the release of TUNEIN 5.3 for ANDROID.
"With Car Mode, TUNEIN becomes the first audio streaming service to offer people the ability to listen to their favorite music, sports and news simply by speaking a command into their phone or tablet. This groundbreaking feature is coupled with extra large buttons for easy viewing and control.
"Here's how it works. You’re in your car on a cloudy day and feel like brightening it up with some beach music. Using TUNEIN, you turn on 'Car Mode' from the main menu and tap the search button, saying, 'Listen to Hawaiian music.' TUNEIN instantly whisks you away to sunny MAUI with the sounds of POLYNESIA filling your car."
