iHeartRadio Launches New On-Demand Streaming Apps To Compete With Spotify

On the surface, iHeartRadio’s new on-demand offerings almost mirror the features available on Spotify, Apple Music and the other prominent players in streaming, but the country’s largest radio conglomerate has something the others don’t: America’s most popular radio stations. While finding where it fits into the on-demand world, iHeart thankfully hasn’t lost sight of what makes it so special, which are the more than 850 stations spread across the country that feature personalities that people love, contests that millions enter and so on. All of this will still be available in the app, and executives at iHeart insist that this new product introduction isn’t intended to switch lanes, but rather to give users options. – Hugh McIntyre, Forbes http://ift.tt/2g4Gm5n
