iHEARTRADIO is launching iHEARTRADIO 5.0 for iOS and ANDROID, which will offer iHEARTRADIO users an even more personalized listening experience with enhanced algorithms. Among the new algorithm updates is the “For You” feature, which adds a genre selection tool for improved, more tailored station recommendations. iHEARTRADIO 5.0 will also include a sleeker, more beautiful and intuitive UI, improved search and simplified controls.
“iHEARTRADIO 5.0 features a significant upgrade to the way we serve our listeners” CLEAR CHANNEL Pres./ Digital BRIAN LAKAMP said. “We’ve been working diligently to personalize iHEARTRADIO and give our listeners more of the artists, the music and the kind of listening experience they want. iHEARTRADIO 5.0 accomplishes that by introducing recommendations, more intelligent design and a better user experience overall.”
iHEARTRADIO 5.0 is available for download now on ANDROID and will be available next week for iOS users. In the coming months the new user-interface will become available across more devices, including CHROMECAST support and other in-home integrations, to deliver a consistent iHEARTRADIO experience for music lovers, no matter their location or listening device.
