Slacker Radio, an Internet music service that has
been around for a while but that arguably isn’t as well known
as Spotify and Pandora, has pushed out an update for its
Android app and with it comes Android Auto support. This is an important update
for the service, as it now trumps many of it competitors in
supporting the platform and as a result becomes a bit more
attractive — at least for those who have taken to using Android
in their car.
Slacker Radio pushed the update to its Android app on the
Google Play Store yesterday, and in addition to the Android
Auto support it brings some bug fixes — the problem with
sharing to Facebook has been fixed, as well as troubles with
playback on live stations, among other things.
Slacker Radio has a nicely modern design and many features —
users can listen to music for free on an
advertisement-supported basis, but there are also two paid
tiers for those who want to get rid of those advertisements and
enjoy some additional features.
The $3.99 per month plan gets rid of ads and has unlimited song
skips, as well as offline stations. The Premium plan is $9.99
per month, and also includes custom playlists, offline
playlists and albums on top of stations, and the features of
the $3.99 plan.
