faidrRadio – an exclusive premium content offering – now available on the faidr iOS app
BOULDER, CO, Jan. 24, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — via NewMediaWire — Audia Inc. (NASDAQ:AUUD) (NASDAQ:AUUDW) (“Auddia” or the “Company”), developer of a proprietary AI platform for audio and innovative technologies for podcasts that is reinventing the way consumers interact with audio, today announced the launch of faidrRadio, an exclusive content offering within the faidr mobile app.
Delivering both curated music playlists, called Music Stations, and DJ-hosted episodic programs, called Music Casts, faidrRadio is available to all iOS users for a limited time and will then only be available to subscribers and users in their 30-day free trial be accessible period. Android users will have the same conditional access to faidrRadio later in Q1. At launch, faidrRadio offers seven music channels and 30 music casts, with expansion planned for 2023.
On 11/15/2022 Corporate Update and Investor Call, the company outlined its larger audio superapp strategy, the next steps of which are to bring exclusive content and podcasts to the faidr platform. The faidrRadio feature effectively launches the exclusive content component of the company’s superapp roadmap.
In addition to the new music content channels, new features and user controls are also offered with faidrRadio.
“This is our first foray into creating and delivering exclusive content through faidr,” said Michael Lawless, CEO of Audidia. “Many of our competitors have chosen to offer their exclusive content via curated playlists. Alongside expertly curated playlists, our Music Casts are unique ways to showcase not only new and established artists, but also DJs who have relevant perspectives to share. We see faidrRadio as a place for users to engage with great music, compelling program hosts, and a launch pad for new voices to break into the mainstream.”
The enterprise has announced his discovery program in April to give new music artists mainstream exposure for AM/FM radio listeners. faidrRadio will provide another mechanism for Discovr artists to be heard with Music Casts, where Discovr artists will be featured alongside the latest releases from established artists.
Audidia is currently working to launch in-app podcasts before the end of Q1 to combine differentiated ad-free listening with feature parity among the top 3 radio streaming apps available to users today. By adding podcasts (coming soon) and exclusive content (in the form of faidrRadio), the company is on track to complete two key components of its overall audio superapp strategy.
