The new Otto Radio web and mobile app can build dedicated stations that pull in audio, news and podcasts about diverse topics such as golf, personal finance, music, food and more.
Otto Radio, an app that provides audio news, narrated articles, and podcasts, normally asks users for some length of time and then builds a list of personalized content to fill that time. But, when you are in an Uber, it uses the Trip Experience API to automatically detect the length of your trip and then build the perfect playlist for you to listen to during your ride.
When we asked what’s in Samsung NEXT’s “secret sauce,” Bechhold explained that the firm is “fortunate so that we have access to a huge company of platforms who give us insider knowledge on where the future is headed, and that helps us determine which opportunities are relevant or not.”
If you listen to the radio but would like to hear consecutive news and podcasts topics that are related to your personal interest try the Otto Radio app. Unlike traditional radio, the app automatically curates top podcasts and audio news based on your personal interests.
The app helps you find interesting stories on topics that interest you most. Instead of listening to typical radio content you can have Otto Radio find and curate podcasts and specialized news on the topics you want to hear about. You can play your personalized news feed on or offline within the mobile app or on the web.
