CCM+E has launched new features for the iHEARTRADIO digital radio platform that will change how users interact with the service. Beginning TODAY (1/7), iHEARTRADIO will offer listeners a new "Perfect For" feature, which will allow users to choose from thousands of curated stations based on a range of moods and activities. iHEARTRADIO also unveiled a new alarm clock feature which will give users the ability to utilize the service as an alarm clock or to set reminders.
In addition to iHEARTRADIO's 1,500 live stations and user-created custom stations, listeners can now select the new "Perfect For" feature to browse through a menu of moods and activities perfect for a particular day and time. For example, early morning users might see stations that are perfect for waking up, running, driving, getting ready for work or even "keeping the previous night going." Once a user makes a selection, they are presented with several applicable genres or themes, each of which contains four station suggestions.
"This new feature makes it even easier for listeners to find the perfect soundtrack for every moment in their day, setting the mood and helping them discover great new music," said Pres./Digital BRIAN LAKAMP. "The 'Perfect For' feature is our latest addition to enhance iHEARTRADIO's already incredible offerings."
