About this app

RaiPlay Sound is Rai's new free multimedia platform dedicated to listening.
It offers original audio podcasts, available in streaming and for offline listening, as well as live streaming and listening on demand of broadcasts broadcast on the 12 Rai radio channels.
The catalog of available titles is enhanced by archival content, audio descriptions of films and TV series and podcasts of the best-known Rai TV programmes.

RaiPlay Sound, also available for Wear OS, is simple to use and requires no registration for both live channel streaming and most on-demand audio content. However, we invite you to register and log in with your Rai account to be able to use additional features that will personalize your experience of using the platform and be able to listen to your favorite podcasts even offline.

RaiPlay Sound replaces the RaiPlay Radio App; if you already have a Rai account that you used on RaiPlay Radio or use on RaiPlay or RaiPlay YoYo, you can continue to use it on RaiPlay Sound; if it is the first time you access the services of the Rai multimedia platforms, register by creating your own Rai account.

At the top of the RaiPlay Sound homepage or from the "Channels" section, you can easily access the live streaming of the 12 Rai Radio channels (Rai Radio 1, Rai Radio 2, Rai Radio 3, Isoradio, Rai Radio1 Sport, Rai Radio 2 Indie , Rai Radio 3 Classica, Rai Gr Parlamento, Rai Radio Kids, Rai Radio Live, Rai Radio Techetè, Rai Radio Tutta Italiana). By selecting a live channel, you can also view the schedule for the following day and week and listen to the episodes aired in the last 7 days.

From the live radio player, if the program has already started you can listen to it again from the starting point and you can go back to the live broadcast by selecting the appropriate icon; you can switch to the car mode function, change the live channel, view the schedule of upcoming events, share the live broadcast, access information and podcasts on the current program and set the sleep timer.

From the "Explore" section you can search for the content of your interest (by title and keywords) and discover the range of titles in the catalog organized by genres and sub-genres to listen to in streaming.

By logging in, you can add the podcast titles of your interest to your favorites using the "Follow" function and select the contents available for download in the app to listen to them offline. From the on demand player you can share the content you are listening to (even from a specific minute), go to the next episode and add it to your playlist. You can also use the new "Bookmark" feature that will allow you to add a marker on a precise point of the content you're listening to, add a note and find it easily in the My Podcasts > Bookmarks section (for quick access or sharing).

In the "My Podcasts" section you can manage and edit the history of the contents you have started listening to (to easily resume using them from the moment you left off), the podcasts you follow, the bookmarks and playlists you have created, app downloads you've made and use the alarm clock feature.

From the "Other" section you can access the management of your personal Rai account, the FAQs, the "Write to us" form and set the consumption of your device related to the use of RaiPlay Sound (wifi only or also on data network).

The RaiPlay Sound app is available free of charge on devices with an Android operating system from version 5 onwards (tablets, smartphones, smartwatches).

Not intuitive enough to use. Buttons and navigation don't follow a logical pattern within the frame and between frames, it is hard to use for elderly people. My mother found it difficult to retain the logic of the location of the buttons, the display is cluttered with too many words and the eye has to run up and down the screen too many times to search for action buttons and some are just tiny written words.Add intuitive shaped icons or pics, differentiate with the use of colours, use less words

The previous version was completely unusable... Podcast would not play at times and loading time of any page was borederline ethernal if It did load at all... This new version finally allows you to actually listen to the podcasts rather than fighitng with capricious software. The best software is the one that you do not realise is there... So far it matches the description...

Great content, terrible app. Maybe it's a classic Italian thing. Looks great! Doesn't function so well. Download a podcast, the next time you try to play it, you have to download it again anyway. Then if I pause play, it starts the next episode rather than going back to the one I was actually listening to.
