Slacker Radio Delivers Personalized Music to Microsoft Windows 10

New Dynamic App Represents a First Step Toward Creating a Universal Experience Across Devices Utilizing Windows 10

SAN DIEGO, CA--(Marketwired - Jul 27, 2016) - Slacker Radio, a leading Internet radio service, today announced its coming to Windows 10 through an application that allows desktop and tablet users to install Slacker natively. The application provides new capabilities like Microsoft Windows Live Tile support, adaptive UI and Cortana integration.

With the new app, users can now use the native Windows 10 taskbar and volume controls to access Slacker's artist-curated shows and themed stations, including its 12 original shows which boast more than 250 interactive episodes. Users can also use Cortana voice controls to navigate and play Slacker's archive of content that is based on interactive storytelling from its hosts and top artists. Updates occur in tandem with Slacker's newly designed web interface, eliminating the need to update the installed app.

"Dating back to its inception, Slacker Radio has a proud history of being a developer partner for Windows," said Steve Cotter, Senior Vice President, Sales and Business Development, Slacker Radio. "We're excited to take the Windows experience a step forward with a dynamic app that will allow Slacker Radio listeners to access the app wherever they go and on the platform of their choosing."

"As the convergence of mobile, desktop and gaming consoles continues, our customers desire a seamless app experience," said Larry Orecklin, VP for U.S. Developer Experience and Evangelism at Microsoft Corp. "The latest example of Slacker Radio tailoring its service to Windows highlights the Microsoft ability to attract forward-thinking partners capable of staying one step ahead of customer expectations to deliver the best possible interaction, no matter the touch point."

Slacker marries story-telling with personalized music streams to drive consumer engagement, where listeners have complete control over their experience and can access the content they want, when they want it. Windows 10 users can download the new app by visiting the Windows Store.
