Alexa’s 2,000 DAUs

Ever since we launched our Alexa skill in September 2017, it has only grown in users and ratings.
Today we are proud to announce that our Alexa skill is used by 2,000 people everyday, across different countries such as the US, UK, Australia, Canada and India.

Only two months ago, in March, we had hit the 1,000 daily active users threshold, and managed to keep growing fast.

At Streema we strive to go where people want to go and we firmly believe voice-activated platforms are the future of audio listening – they provide a simple way to seamlessly integrate into someone’s life, without friction, and we want your favorite radio station to make it there.

Stay tuned!

Our new mobile web is coming soon, thanks to PWA

Committed to our goal of delivering an amazing user experience, we’ve recently started developing a new mobile web using Google’s PWA framework.

PWA stands for progressive web app, a mobile website that contains most of the potential functions and benefits that a typical mobile app has:

  • Engaging: Feel like a natural app on the device, with an immersive user experience
  • Fast: Respond quickly to user interactions
  • Reliable: Load instantly, even in uncertain network conditions
  • Add to homescreen: Progressive Web Apps are installable and live on the user’s home screen, without the need for an app store

As you can see, our new mobile web will have a resemblance with Simple Radio, and be much faster. Users will still be able to listen to stations, add them to favorites, search and browse among station names, genres, cities and countries.

We’ve done some preliminary testing and so far the PWA is outperforming our current mobile web in a bunch of user-related metrics, such as average session time and sessions per user. People that use the PWA return more often than those from the mobile web.

We are planning to do a full rollout of our new mobile web experience with PWA later in 2019 🙂

So as we always say, stay tuned!

10M Monthly Active Users on our Platform

Today we’re happy to share with you that Streema recently reached 10 Million Monthly Active Users! We never thought that ten million people would use our service in a single month, but here we are. 😄

It’s difficult to think how big a number 10 million is when referring to people, but given the time we live in and thanks to many products and services we rely on, it’s also great to share that it’s possible to make it happen with a small team like ours.

Streema’s user base has changed in many ways through the years. For a long time our product has been used by desktop users at Streema.com – however, today, of those 10 million, around 7 million are mobile between mobile web and our Simple Radio App in Android and iOS.

Simple Radio has been the main reason for that growth in the last few years. Our app has received positive reviews with an average of 4.4 stars in the Play Store and 4.5 in the App Store, making it one of the best rated music apps out there. To all our lovely users, THANK YOU!

Here we’ve highlighted some of the best reviews we’ve recently read out of the hundreds we receive every day:

Simple Radio for Android Auto is here!

We’ve been quietly working away on many things during the first few months of the year and wanted to share with you one of our projects: Simple Radio for Android Auto. The connected car is part of a future that is quickly coming to the present, and at Streema we want to be a part of it.

We’re proud to announce that we were selected as launch partners at Google’s Android Auto event last week in São Paulo, Brazil, where Google announced that Android Auto was coming to the South American country in April. Local media picked it up and we can say we’re very excited to contribute to create a more connected (car) world.

Here are some screenshots of the Portuguese language version of Simple Radio for Android Auto:

Thank you Google for selecting us as launch partners and thanks to our team for building such an amazing app! 🙂

Stay tuned for more developments coming up.

Simple Radio Now Has 1M Monthly Active Users on Mobile

As you may have noticed, we’ve been very quiet at Streema – no big news announcements nor blog posts over the past few months. The truth is that it’s been a busy time here. We’ve been quietly working on a few different things, the most important being listening to your feedback and improving our Simple Radio application.

Well, we can say that the work is paying off: even though we launched Simple Radio less than a year ago – 11 months ago on October 27, 2014 to be exact – we’re proud to say that we recently hit the 1M MAU milestone. Even more importantly, those are happy users that have sent us thousands of happy messages as well as given us a 4.5 average rating across mobile platforms, making us one of the highest rated radio apps out there.

We’re still hard at work, since the work is never finished, but wanted to take a moment to share the good news. 

Thanks again for being part of our story. 🙂

Our new iPhone app Simple Radio is finally here!

Hi!

Last week we said there was something new coming at Streema. After several months of hard work, we are proud to announce our new iPhone application: Simple Radio.

At Streema, we’ve been wanting to develop a mobile application for a long time. Additionally, it was the #1 most popular request we got from our users over the past few years. Finally, this year we made it happen!

When you first launch Simple Radio, you’ll notice that it’s super easy to use, comes with just the essentials and has a beautiful design. We wanted to create a pure radio experience, removing everything that could get in the way of you and your favorite radio stations. Just go to the App Store, install Simple Radio (it’s free!) and experience it for yourself. Once you have tried it, we would love to hear what you think of it: you can always email us at simple at streema.com.Also, if you want to make us really happy, go ahead and tweet about the launch and use the following link ( http://bit.ly/simpleradioapp ) to help drive others to download for free and enjoy.

The official press release can be found here.

Believe us when we say that this is a very exciting time for our company! Really looking forward to the world finding out about Simple Radio over the next few weeks. 🙂

Stay tuned!

PS: Android users, we love you too! We are working on an Android version to be shipped soon, so stay tuned for more news in the coming months!

Something New Is Coming at Streema…

Hi!

We’re writing today because we wanted to give you a heads up that next week we’ll be announcing something new at Streema. It’s something that we’ve been wanting to do for a long time, but it was not until this year that we felt we could work on it.

We can’t say more right now, but soon you’ll find out – and we know many of you Streema users will be happy about it. 🙂

Stay tuned!
