“Siri, play KIIS 1065”: iHeartRadio Australia partners with Siri
iPhone users can now access ARN‘s digital radio stations via voice command.
ARN-owned iHeartRadio Australia is one of the first radio partners to be available through Siri.
Listeners can use a command like “Siri, Play KIIS 1065”, or even customise Siri to steam any iHeartRadio station with commands like “Siri, Play my favourite station.”
Voice prompts can be delivered through Siri Voice or Siri Suggestions and iHeartRadio podcasts through Siri Voice.
Siri Suggestions are also designed to be intuitive. The feature will pick up on podcasts and stations that listeners enjoy most, and signals like location, listening history and time of day to give recommendations.
“With over 65% of Australians currently using Apple mobile phones to listen to iHeartRadio, this great new simple Siri Shortcut makes accessing your favourite station even easier,” said iHeartRadio Australia COO Geraint Davies.
