Earlier this year, Apple CEO Tim Cook proclaimed that TV's future meant more apps. That's certainly the case for Cupertino's streaming device, and today the gadget got one more piece of software. iHeartRadio now streams radio and other music content to the set-top box, offering another option for bringing some audio into your living room. The internet radio app also streams to Play-Fi-enabled speakers, too. With the Play-Fi app on both iOS and Android, you can beam high-quality lossless audio and control the stations with your phone or tablet.
Last but not least, Samsung's Multi-Screen tech will handle tunes from iHeartRadio as well. The feature allows you to cast to compatible Samsung devices, including the Gear S2 smartwatch, speakers and smart TVs. You'll need the iHeartRadio app for Android or Tizen to keep the music going, but expect turning the bezel on the Gear S2 to switch between live radio, custom stations and podcasts.
