Wazes new audio player supports Pandora, Stitcher and more

Drivers can now listen to their favorite tunes without having to leave the Waze navigation app.
This week, Waze added an audio player to its crowdsourced navigation app that aims to deliver music, podcasts and other content from seven major platforms, including Pandora, Deezer, iHeartRadio, NPR, Scribd, Stitcher and TuneIn.These partners have integrated their audio experience intoWazeby using a new suite of developer tools, called theWazeAudio Kit.
A beta version of its Android and iOS apps that include the embedded audio player, called Waze Audio Player, was released this week to members of Wazes beta community.WazeAudio Playerwill begin rolling out to allWazeusers in the coming weeks, the company said.
The decision to bring audio into the popular navigation app was inspired by the positive feedback the company received after its first audio integration with Spotify that launched in March 2017, Waze said.
Heres how it will work. Once users open Waze, the app willdetect any of the supported music apps installed on their smartphones. Users can tap the music note icon to select their audio app within Waze. To switch from one audio app to another say from NPR to iHeartRadio userstap the music note icon again and then hit change app.
Users will be able to control whichever content theyre listening to usingforward, backward and pause icons. Theyll also be able to save content to a library.
