Wednesday 06 March, 2019

Australia’s iHeartRadio, and crowdsourced navigation app, Waze, have integrated their apps in Australia
The partnership offers the two million Australian drivers currently using the Waze app a seamless driving experience - with access to iHeartRadio Australia’s free, all-in-one live radio, music streaming, podcast and entertainment service for the duration of their journey.
Via the Waze Audio Player, embedded in the Waze app, drivers can now enjoy a playlist tailored to their personal interests from iHeartRadio’s extensive offering - all while safely navigating the roads.
iHeartRadio’s unlimited free service offers live radio stations from across Australia including ARN’s KIIS and Pure Gold Networks, ABC and SBS, Macquarie Media, Kinderling and the ACE Radio network, plus all the top podcasts and the ability to create custom stations featuring favourite artists and music. Drivers can curate their own personalised listening experience utilising all this content, allowing for the best possible car journey.
COO of iHeartRadio Australia, Geraint Davies,  says, “The integration of the Waze and iHeartRadio apps is the perfect combination for commuters in Australia.
“Offering the ability to listen to your favourite Breakfast Show, Drive Show or podcast, while also taking the fastest route - thanks to the huge community of Waze users constantly updating local traffic conditions – makes this a great partnership.”
Head of Global Partnerships at Waze, Adam Fried, says, “We’re thrilled to bring the integration of the iHeartRadio and Waze apps to drivers in Australia.
“Waze users nationwide can now enjoy an even more safe and seamless experience, listening to their favourite content from iHeartRadio while benefiting from Waze’s community of drivers sharing real-time information on the road ahead.”
