Oct 14, 2014 3:59 PM

INDIANAPOLIS� NextRadio will release major updates available to the public October 17. This will be in conjunction with the release of the latest NextRadio-enabled Sprint phone, Samsung Galaxy Note 4.

The updates include Live Guide, a visual tuning interface that enables listeners to see what radio stations are playing at any moment in time. Live Guide makes FM radio an on demand-like experience, enabling listeners to choose a station based on the artist or on-air program.

Other changes include a streamlined navigation drawer that puts all user options in one place, as well as in-app tutorials showing listeners how to interact with their local stations.

A new feature available to stations utilizing the TagStation cloud-based service is dynamically-driven related content �cards,� which will accompany station songs and programming events to provide the listener with more information about the live broadcast while providing the station with extended advertiser and promotion options. These may include upcoming concerts, record release dates, recently played, next up on-air, and more.

The app update also adds improved frequency locating accuracy.

The app has also reached a milestone: one million downloads.
