Do You Know There Is No FM Radio App On Windows10 Mobile Devices?

Windows 10 scrapped the inclusion of radio application on their devices claiming that most users now prefer downloading the application from third party partners.

You hardly see an android device without a radio application pre-installed but it's not so on the windows phone.
You can read the tweet from Microsoft Insider Engineering team confirming this here

No matter what, a pre-installed FM radio app allows you to enjoy listening to local radio stations without internet connection while you must need data and strong internet connection to use the third party radio apps you install from windows store.

I think Microsoft should look into this and have a rethink if they really want to compete strongly with android in all fronts.


  1. This is totally strange to me cos i never knew about it

  2. Microsoft should as a matter of urgency look into this issue and provide an update that will include the radio app
