Radioplayer and Amazon to launch new listening device

Manx Radio to feature in 465 available stations

Radioplayer has been working with Amazon for the last few weeks on a new project.

It's launching its voice-controlled ‘smart speaker', the Amazon Echo, in the British Isles shortly, and it'll have Radioplayer in it when it does.

This means that all 465 UK Radioplayer stations will appear in the new ‘skill', as Amazon calls its apps for the device, including Manx Radio.

For now, listeners can ask for a station by name, or ask for one to be recommended, based on location, what's trending right now, and what they last listened to.
