Free Option: NextRadio by Sprint says specifically it is not a streaming services, but uses the FM tuner in your phone. It says it is only for a few Sprint phones, but appears to be installable on my Galaxy Nexus and Moto X, so it should be available for your HTC One Play Edition.
- Tune in to local FM stations on your phone
- Find radio stations by genre or frequency in the Guide
- Uses 90% LESS data than streaming music
- Get 3X BETTER battery life compared to streaming music
NOTE: for another possibly free option, see the conversation below.
Paid Option: As stated on Android Central, the Spirit FM app will do the trick on the HTC One Play Edition:
If you're an average phone user, & don't know what Android "rooting" is, Spirit will likely > not offer you much more than your stock FM app. If your phone does not have a stock FM app, > it is unlikely that Spirit will work on it. Spirit is mostly for Android enthusiasts who "root" & "ROM" their phones. But it also works > on many stock, "store bought" phones.
This Works with:
One Stock, Google Play Edition & AOSP One X LTE (AT&T) LTE / One S
This is a paid option, but has been quoted to work on your device and you can always refund within 15 minutes if it doesn't.
I had a conversation with an HTC Representative and while he said it should be possible, he could not give me any specifics. The conversation is below.
Wes: Thank you for contacting HTC Chat.Hello Jacob.
Yes y ou can but y ou may need to download as a third party app.
Jacob: Do you know of any ? The only ones i can find are internet radio ones, I'd like to utilize the fm tuner hardware
Jacob: Or do you know of a place i can download the app from the non-play edition?
Wes: I really am not sure what 3rd party app that would be workable.
Wes: Sorry for the inconvenience.
Jacob: Would HTC be able to provide the app from the original HTC one?
Wes: That would be a pre installed app. There isnt really a link for them.
Jacob: I know. That's why I wanted to ask an HTC representative
Wes: I am looking into it at the moment.
Tell you the truth though, the second is simply FM Player and it looks promising, but states it's only for Motorola devices.
