The NextRadio app went live in Mexico�s Google Play store on Aug. 31. Grupo Radio Centro, the largest broadcaster in Mexico, and many other broadcasters have already signed up, according to NextRadio.

Also, in conjunction with the Ambassadors Office in Peru, NextRadio hosted a promotional event on Aug. 10, which was the official launch for the app in Peru. The event included 75 guests from all major broadcasters, large advertising agencies and dignitaries from Peru.�

�We are pleased to continue our expansion into Latin America. Starting in Peru and Mexico was an easy decision since radio consumption is so high, and we had overwhelming support from the Peruvian Radio Committee and GRC in Mexico. Our long term vision is to expand into Colombia and Brazil and continue to round out covering all of Latin America,� said President TagStation Paul Brenner.�

This news follows several other announcements about the app this week.

New Samsung Galaxy phones are now compatible with the NextRadio app on all carriers. This includes the Galaxy S7, Galaxy S7 edge and Note7 models. NextRadio called attention to a software update announced Friday by Verizon.�

Samsung is the first manufacturer fully compatible across all carriers, according to NextRadio.�

Additionally, Brenner assured attendees at a NAB Pilot event Wednesday that they shouldn�t worry about Apple�s decision to ditch the headphone jack on the new iPhone 7. After all, he noted that Apple isn�t the first to make this move � the Moto Z announced in June also nixed that port.�
