faidr iOS app now Offers Podcasts Alongside Commercial-Free AM/FM and Company’s Exclusive Content Programming, faidrRadio
First Phase of Superapp Strategy Complete
BOULDER, CO - (NewMediaWire) - March 09, 2023 - Auddia Inc. (NASDAQ:AUUD) (NASDAQ:AUUDW) ("Auddia" or the "Company"), developer of a proprietary AI platform for audio and innovative technologies for podcasts that is reinventing how consumers engage with audio, announced today that it has released podcast-listening functionality in the iOS version of its flagship mobile app, faidr.
The Company had planned to launch podcasts in faidr by the end of Q1.
“We’ve had our sights on bringing podcasting into faidr for a while, and we’re very excited that our iOS users can take advantage of commercial-free AM/FM, the exclusive content we continue to add through faidrRadio, and now, their favorite podcasts,” said Auddia’s CEO Michael Lawless. “We pushed the envelope with our proof-of-concept podcast app Vodacast last year, and we plan to bring some of those technological differentiators into the faidr podcast experience later in the year.”
With podcasts now available on faidr, the app has feature parity with the top radio-streaming mobile applications available today. However, no other radio-streaming app can deliver a completely ad-free AM/FM experience other than faidr, which has over 6,200 AM/FM stations, 98% of which are available ad-free.
Auddia will be launching podcasts in its Android app in early Q2. With podcasting now available in iOS, the Company has completed the first phase of its Superapp strategy.
