iHeartRadio gains Android Wear support next week

Starting October 15, iHeartRadio users will be able to use their voice to control their music listening experience with Android Wear support. Users with an Android phone and an Android Wear smartwatch will be able to search for their favorite radio stations using their voice or give a thumbs up to the music they like right from their wrist.

Here are some of the features that will be available for Android Wear users:

  • Voice Search ­ Listen to more than 1,900 live radio stations or create your own based on a library of more than 450,000 artists by simply saying "Z100" or "Rihanna"

  • Favorites ­ Quick access to view and play saved stations or shows

  • For You - Browse tailored recommendations based on specific music preferences and listening habits

  • Thumbs Up / Thumbs Down - Provide on the spot feedback to tailor future music recommendations, plus enjoy the ability to scan live stations across the country
