Checking the language setting in a user’s phone and presenting navigation and text in language
Users can now pick their favourite content and display it in their own tailored playlist
Switching stations is now easier in the live radio menu
In-app alerts to notify about new podcast episodes or any favourite content about to expire
Use the new ‘Explore’ screen to find any new shows to add to the favourite list
Set a sleep-timer for automatic switch-off after a period of time or when a program ends
SBS Director of Audio and Language Content, Mandi Wicks said, “SBS Radio recognises that our audiences expect a more on demand content experience, on the device of their choice. With the new and improved functionality, the SBS Radio app caters to our listeners with a personalised experience tailored to their content and language preferences.”
