iHeartRadio offers curated playlists to free users

iHeartRadio added on-demand music streaming powered by Napster to its broadcast radio-centric service in 2016. The company later added curated activity-, era- and genre-based playlists for paid subscribers since then, too. Now the company is bringing this Playlist Radio feature to all of its users, including free members.

iHeartRadio promises thousands of hand-curated music playlists that have created around specific moods, activities, genres and eras. Only paid users will be able to create their own playlists, save music from our curated playlists, listen to music offline, play the songs in the order they please, and instantly replay playlist songs they love. Free members will be able to listen to the curated playlists, including ones made for road trips, ‘80s music and workouts.

iHeartRadio isn’t the only streaming service with curated playlists, of course. Apple Music and Spotify. users can listen to curated lists, as well. Spotify free members can create their own playlists, but they’re limited to 6 skips per hour and will hear ads (and sometimes similar tracks instead of the ones in the playlist itself). Apple of course doesn’t have a free tier, but it does have curated and subscriber-made playlists available.
