iHeartRadio App Featured on New Samsung Gear 2
February 24, 2014

iHeartRadio announces its entry into the rapidly growing wearables market with a new app for the just announced Samsung Gear 2. As the first digital radio service available on the Samsung Gear 2, iHeartRadio continues its focus on being everywhere consumers are including wearables, TVs, cars, connected devices and virtually all smartphones and tablets. The anticipated Samsung Gear 2 will be available to consumers in April.

The Samsung Gear 2  features an exclusive demonstration of the iHeartRadio smartwatch integration. This integration allows Samsung Gear 2 users to remotely control their iHeartRadio smartphone app easily from their wrist. 

The app will be compatible with more than 30 devices including the Samsung Galaxy Note and S series smartphones, as well as Galaxy tablets. It will give users easy access to more than 1,500 live radio stations as well as the ability to create their own stations from more than 450,000 artists and 18 million songs. Optimized features available at the user's fingertips include:

* Access favorite Live and Custom Stations
* Save Favorites
* Scan Live Stations
* Skip songs on Custom Stations
* Thumbs Up/Thumbs Down songs

This news comes on the heels of several other integrations made during the Consumer Electronics Show in January, when iHeartRadio announced it would be available through new partnerships with Qualcomm, AT&T, GM, Jaguar Land Rover, Kia and Volvo.

"iHeartRadio is dedicated to providing even more access to the music, news and entertainmentthat our listeners love," said Brian Lakamp, Clear Channel's President of Digital. "Wearablesare an emerging access point for music fans, and Clear Channel continues to make iHeartRadio available everywhere our users are listening. The sleek design and interface of the Samsung Gear 2 lends itself well to the iHeartRadio user experience and we believe it will be popular among our listeners."
