Radioplayer for Alexa
Just say: "Alexa, open Radioplayer"
Smart speakers are very popular and radio is one of the absolute most used features. But sometimes it can be hard to find the right station, or maybe you just wish it was a little bit smarter.
Let's say you want your smart speaker to tell you which song your station is playing, give you a recommendation for a local station or just help you find the right regional version of your favourite station... That is why we have launched the new "Radioplayer for Alexa". Here you can easily find your favourite stations in great quality, just as you do with Radioplayer on other devices.
Depending on which country you are in, you will find a local version of Radioplayer, speaking your language and offering the stations you expect to hear where you live. The language and content in Radioplayer for Alexa will depend on the settings in your Alexa account.
The new Radioplayer for Alexa is currently available in Austria, Belgium, Canada, France, Ireland, Italy, Netherlands, Norway and Spain. More countries will follow soon.
Alexa, open Radioplayer
To activate Radioplayer for Alexa, search for "Radioplayer" under Skills and Games in your Alexa app or just ask Alexa to "Open Radioplayer".
