Please make this app work with smart speakers, having to cast it from my phone makes it clunky but I can see why it's an option. Works terribly on android auto, cuts out constantly, auto starts while listening to the radio constantly and saved stations don't appear, meaning I have to search each time.

haven't utilised to the full potential yet. have had the app for awhile now approx 6 months total. want to achieve the art of listening instead of watching content on general. looking forward to exploring what is on offer. thank you for delivering so far a stable application 👍
