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.

In case you didn’t know, Chromecast enables you to extend your Android app, iOS app, or Chrome website to stream video and audio to a TV or sound system. That means that either Streema’s web player or Simple Radio becomes a remote control to play, pause, stop the streaming of your radio station on other devices.
We upgraded our Chromecast connectivity and usability with the latest version of the Google Cast SDK. Now, it is easier for our users to cast their favorites stations from Streema and Simple Radio to a smart speaker (such as Google Home), TV and other Chromecast enabled devices.
If you want to cast a station, go to Streema’s player or Simple Radio, and you will see the Cast icon only if Cast receivers are available nearby. If there’s none around, then the cast button will not appear.
Here are some of the upgrades we introduced:
- Included the logo, dial and band of the station on the Cast Menu. Now you can easily identify which station is being casted without opening the app.
- Control volume and play/pause or stop casting
- Display a notification only when the sender app casting is not currently in view
Go check it out on Streema and Simple Radio!
