Clear Channel Media and Entertainment has announced iHeartRadio’s expansion across the automotive industry with its integrations in Chrysler Group and General Motors (GM) vehicles.
It has also introduced a new made-for-driving application “iHeartRadio for Auto” (iHeartAuto) which will enable seamless and standardized access to the iHeartRadio digital music platform.
Beginning this year, iHeartRadio will be available in-dash on select Chrysler Group vehicles equipped with Uconnect Access Via Mobile, the company’s suite of sensible connectivity features.
Once a user connects their compatible Apple or Android smartphone with the Chrysler Uconnect Access App, drivers can control and personalize their iHeartRadio listening experience directly through the dashboard touch screen, allowing easy access for in-vehicle enjoyment of iHeartRadio.
“Our integrations with Chrysler Group and GM vehicles along with the availability of the new iHeartAuto app make it easier for users to access their favorite iHeartRadio stations no matter where they travel,” said Brian Lakamp, president of Digital, Clear Channel Media and Entertainment.
Also, iHeartRadio will expand auto integrations to select 2014 GM infotainment systems. It was announced Monday, Jan. 7.
With 239 million monthly listeners in the U.S., Clear Channel Media and Entertainment claims to have the largest reach of any radio or television outlet in America.
