This collaboration comes on the heels of Apple’s release of iOS13, which according to the tech giant, introduces a new radio experience to Apple devices – including iPhone, iPad, Apple Watch, AirPods, CarPlay and HomePod.
As first movers in the voice assistant space, TuneIn brings their long-time integration expertise to more than 50 million Apple Music subscribers by offering them the ability to access their favorite sports, news and radio content on their Siri-enabled devices with a simple voice command.
“We are thrilled to join forces with Apple and be a part of the company’s ecosystem on a global scale,” said Tony Archibong, Vice President, Distribution & Business Development, TuneIn. “As our 75 million users around the world can attest, radio is one of the most popular categories of audio listening on connected devices, and this important partnership serves to heighten our user experience and be everywhere our listener is.”
TuneIn’s radio stations can be accessed worldwide in 197 countries on more than 200 different platforms and devices. The complete feature will be rolling out to Apple Music and all Siri-enabled devices throughout the week ahead.
