The BBC is Launching a Personalised Version of iPlayer Radio for Your Car

If you're lucky enough to have a car that runs Apple's Carplay or Android Auto, and you like listening to all the radio stations the BBC has to offer, you're in luck. The corporation has announced that it's releasing a personalised version of the BBC iPlayer app for both platforms.

The update is designed to let people safely enjoy the BBC's radio app from behind the wheel, alongside personalised playlists of their favourite shows and episodes, all of which are available to download and play offline. That's on top of the BBC's wide number of radio stations that you can stream.

As you would expect both versions of the app have simplified displays that make it easier to navigate while driving, and include the option to skip 20 seconds backwards and forwards through the content you're listening to. The Android version also comes with voice controls, so you can keep both hands on the wheel, and or gear stick.

The app is naturally available on Android and iOS. You can check out compatible Android Auto cars here and Apple Carplay cars here.
