Simple Radio Now Available in 13 Languages

At Streema we’ve always had users from all over the world using our applications. A few years ago we added multiple languages to our website, and we felt that it was time to do the same for Simple Radio. As a mobile app with a lot of international usage, we felt Simple Radio needed to be more international, so we worked with people from several different countries to add great content and now we’ve added many more languages.

We initially had English, Spanish, Portuguese, and French, and now we’ve launched the following new languages on our Simple Radio app:

  • Italian
  • Hindi
  • Japanese
  • Malay
  • Korean
  • Chinese
  • Indonesian
  • Russian
  • German

We’re considering adding more languages so, as a Simple Radio user, which ones do you think we should add next?

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:

1 year and 1M MAU on Android later

Simple Radio by Streema

Before the year came to an end, we wanted to take a little time with you to celebrate some of our milestones in this amazing 2015. 🙂

In particular, it has been an important year for us in mobile. We launched Simple Radio for Android in January and Simple Radio for Apple Watch in April. We also added Chromecast Support, to the delight of many of our users.

We wanted to make a special mention about our Android app: in less than 12 months we reached 1 million Monthly Active Users on that platform and its success led us to be featured on Google Play.

And finally, we have also been listening to you and working very hard to improve our product, a result of which is that Simple Radio now has a 4.4 rating out of 5 on Android and 4.5 over 5 on iOS.

We have big plans for 2016, so stay tuned.

Have a great holiday season. 🙂

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. 🙂

And now… Simple Radio for Android!

A few months ago we launched Simple Radio for iOS and we are happy to say that the response from our users has been fantastic. Our app recently reached 500,000 installs with an average rating of 4.5 out of 5 stars in the App Store. All thanks to your support!

But today’s post isn’t about iOS, it’s about the other great mobile platform that our users love. We’re happy to welcome Simple Radio for Android!

As with its iOS cousin, Simple Radio for Android is free and super easy to use. You’ll be able to get to your favorite stations blazingly fast and listen to them without any interruptions.

The official press release can be found here.

We really hope you will enjoy it – we’re excited to get your comments and feedback at simple at streema.com!

Stay Tuned,

PS. We’re just getting started with the Simple Radio experience! More coming soon… 🙂

Improving Streema’s Mobile Experience in iOS and Android

For the first time in history, the total number of smartphones and tablets in the world will surpass the total number of PCs – and it will happen this year.

What you’ve read above is one of the most important points of the report Mobile Trends by KPCB (see slide 26 for more details). As you can see, 2013 will bring an important inflection point for people’s interaction with computers. Since mobile is becoming increasingly important in terms of Streema.com‘s usage, we have been working on a few improvements that we wanted to tell you about.

To start off, when you visit http://streema.com from an iPhone, iPod, iPad or Android device’s browser, you’ll find we’ve developed a mobile-friendly homepage with some featured radios that our users can start listening to – sweet and simple.

Also, since not all streams are supported by mobile web browsers, we only show the stations that can actually play in each of those platforms. We know that having only a fraction of the stations available is less than ideal, but the truth is that we want to make your life easier and give you the best experience possible.

Finally, as we’ve mentioned in our previous post, we’ve improved our customer support, and that also includes our Mobile Support. It’s very important for us to hear your opinions, so please, don’t hesitate in giving us your feedback. Do bear in mind that this is a work in progress and that it will be evolving over time. 🙂

For those registered users out there, we’ll soon be working on letting you log in to your account with your mobile phone so you can find and edit your favorites. Additionally, in the not-so-distant future, we’ll start showing the “now playing” information, offer the possibility to comment on a station’s Wall, as well as add compatibility to more devices and much more for our mobile users, so stay tuned!
