About this app

Listen to hundreds of UK stations for free, with no sign-in, and no extra ads. Enjoy music, news, sport, and subscribe to thousands of shows and podcasts.

Radioplayer is the official radio app for the UK, backed by the BBC and all the major independent broadcasters. It's simple to use, with some powerful features which will help you enjoy radio even more…
- Colourful new 'My stations' dial, so it's easy to find your favourites
- Notifications to remind you about new episodes of your favourite shows
- Powerful search and recommendations, to help you discover new radio
- 'Wrong Way Driver' technology, to alert you to motorway dangers
- Voice control to skip safely through your favourite stations while driving
- Great new Android Auto integrations, for in-car use

Radioplayer sounds great on high-quality speakers, because we offer hi-fi streams direct from broadcasters, which other apps can't access. And when you're on the move, Radioplayer switches to mobile-friendly streams so you don't use so much data.

Take radio to bed, with our Alarm Clock and Sleep Timer. Play your favourites with one tap, using Easy Mode. Listen on your Bluetooth speaker or Cast to your TV.

This radio app has everything from news and sport - to pop, rock, indie, dance, jazz, soul, and classical. It's perfect for live Premier League football, Ashes cricket, Wimbledon tennis, F1 at the weekend, Festivals over the summer, and Christmas radio stations.

When this app works fully, I thinks it's very good Unfortunately that's not very often. Amongst others I listen to BBC Radio 4, LBC News and Times News . With the first 2 more often than not (literally) I have no sound at all. The lines on the Play button jump up and down as if there is sound and the tuning circle around the pause button continuously revolves as if it's trying to tune in. On another occasion all can be working fine. Tuning into Times News always works. I can make no sense of it.

This app has gone from brilliant to absolutely terrible! Besides the alarm not working, which has been highlighted many times but not addressed, to many stations not available due to no URL! The whole functionality is not user friendly. I've wssted too much time hoping that the developer's would sort this out. You've had plenty of time. Fed up! Going to look for another app.

I've used this app for years to have a gentle wake up to Radio 4 news when I need an alarm call. Tonight, I've tried to set the alarm but the whole app has changed. It's taken me 10 minutes to find the heart icon for the channel and not just individual shows. Having finally found it, I still can't find the alarm and sleep timer settings. I'm very disappointed! Please bring them back quickly!!!
