    Anyone have a phone with the FM chip and use the

    NextRadio app? Wondering if it still works or not. I’m thinking about buying a phone to only use its FM chip.

    I have the unlocked moto e4 that has FM radio.

    It came with an app called "FM Radio" that I use.

    It requires a headphone plugged in to use as the antenna. It says you can try it without the headphone but warns it might not work good or at all without it so I never tried it without the headphone.

    I think the FM radio works good and has good sound.

    Most modern Android phones have the FM chip. NextRadio is one of the most popular applications to allow its use, but there are others. From time to time, I played with it on more than one Samsung Galaxy phone since my S4 device. I find it more convenient to use Pandora instead as I can customize certain songs that I don't want to hear and give thumbs up for ones I prefer. The drawback is that Pandora does require either a Wifi or cellular connection to work vs. the FM chip that allows the user to listen via the standard FM frequencies. Where I live, there are only a few stations I can listen to over the air.
    Just another day in paradise.....
