iHeartRadio is coming to your Apple Watch. Now, you can access your favorite podcasts and online radio on your wrist. iHeartRadio offers loads of free broadcast and online radio streaming both for listening to music and podcasts. With the new Apple Watch app, you can listen to your radio stations anywhere you go.
The iHeartRadio app is available in the US, Canada, Australia, Mexico, and New Zealand. The language can be set to English, Spanish, and French. You can use the new app with the Apple Watch Series 6 and Watch SE, as well as with the WatchOS 7 update. Older Series 3, 4 or 5 devices are also supported as well as WatchOS 6.2 and up.
With the new iHeartRadio Apple Watch app, you can listen to your music through your Apple Watch alone or your iPhone. It works as a standalone smartwatch app where you can still access your podcasts and radio streams even without your iPhone. You can also use it as a controller app for your iHeart Radio iOS app. You can even use it as a remote control on your other Apple devices.
How Does the iHeartRadio App Works on Apple Watch
Features available in the Apple Watch app are Search, Your Library, Add to Playlist, Recently Played, and Apple Watch complications. The Your Library function includes Your Playlists, Your Stations, and Your Podcasts. In the Your Library, you will see all the playlists, stations, and podcasts that you have created or followed. You can also use a thumbs up on your favorite music.
In the Recently Played, you can see all the podcasts and playlists that you have recently listened to in the app. It also records your radio stations. All your songs and playlists are also synced from your iPhone app.
The iHeartRadio Apple Watch also allows you to switch between devices, so whatever you may be doing, you can switch from your Apple Watch to your iPhone and vice versa. For instance, if you are walking around and don’t want to take your phone with you, you can switch the app to your watch and continue listening to your music.
