This is the new iVoox app for Android

PRESS RELEASE — October 17, 2019

Barcelona, Catalonia, Spain—The podcasts and live radio application iVoox has launched a redesign of its Android app, which presents a refreshed look, simplified and expanded features, and an improved user experience.

This new update follows a change in design and usability in their iOS app at the beginning of the year.

Content enhancement and ease of use

With this new design iVoox seeks to improve usability and give greater relevance with a cleaner and minimalist design, where podcast and radio images gain prominence.

The Home screen now highlights Popular Lists, where listeners can enjoy daily update lists with episodes that are trending on iVoox and playlists curated by their editorial team.

iVoox are working on the creation of new smart lists, which will allow users to filter by keywords and obtain a personalized playlist. For example, a listener interested in meditation will be able to configure a list that is automatically generated, with episodes of shows that he has previously chosen, and podcasts that talk about it.

With this new version iVoox wanted to give more weight to subscriptions, so that the programs to which the listeners are subscribed are organized in a much more visual way. It is now possible to filter between episodes that have not yet been heard.

From Explore, users can filter by category and discover both programs and episodes. In addition, it is now possible to check the podcasts published by a radio station from the same player.

In this new version the player and the car mode have been redesigned, being now simpler and more accessible. In addition, as already launched in previous versions, the app is also compatible with Android Auto.

The playback queue is now more intuitive, and the user has the option to customize it to their liking, being able to add, delete or modify the order of the suggested audios that make it up.

Podcast Professionalization

Apart from offering listeners some quality apps, one of the main focuses of iVoox is the commitment to the professionalization of the podcast world, Juan Ignacio Solera, founder and president of iVoox, points out that “our desire is that the Podcaster can make the passion and time he spends sustainable, and that he can live on it. ” Solera adds that “this is why with the new update we try to enhance Subscriptions for Fans, where listeners can support their favorite podcasts and access exclusive content or scoop, and in turn podcasters can monetize their content.”

Along the same lines, visibility of iVoox Originals is also enhanced in the new app, the catalog of podcasts offered exclusively and that iVoox has announced will expand in the coming months.

iVoox is the leading podcast and radio platform in Spanish for listening, publishing, sharing and monetizing. It has more than 25 million pieces of audio, more than 60 million audios heard per month and a rating of 4.7 in the main app stores.
