Tunein Radio gets an update for Windows Phone. Kind of works again.

Good news for those on Windows Phone 8 or just use Tunein Radio, as you can now download version 2.3 from the Store.

The popular streaming radio app was “hidden” from Windows Phone 8 users due to compatibility problems but we were able to now download and load it up. The app has not been updated for Windows Phone 8 in the sense that it does not have new graphics, fast resume, doublewide Tile or anything cool—it just “works” now.  We put works in quotes because we still find some stations are hit and miss, but the majority are there and do play.

We’re still not fans of Tunein’s design too much—everything seems a little too tiny (they’d be better served by using a Tile system for the menu), but the app at least looks decent.  But like we said, you can use the app on your new phone and hopefully the Tunein team will now focus on some proper Windows Phone 8 features. Streaming radio is even more important on Windows Phone 8 due to the fact that FM HD radio is evidently no longer supported or included.

Grab Tunein Radio version 2.3 (though it may say 2.2) from the Store here. Thanks, Brenda, for the tip!

My favorite app. I would not move off of WP7 without it. Hope for another update to get it 100% on WP8.

DigTheNoise says:

Yup. Really miss it since I went from my HD7 to my 810.  I didn't realize until that evening that it was unavailable on WP8 when I hit the hay and was ready to play some tunes.
I really like the Win 8 version on both my laptop and Surface.

Anyone see tango for windows phone 8? Can't find for the Lumia 920. Don't wanna download Skype yet because of hearing issues related to it.

Nope been looking for that also went ahead and got Skype. I hope tango comes to wp8 soon.

my co-worker's mom makes $62 every hour on the laptop. She has been unemployed for eight months but last month her pay check was $15890 just working on the laptop for a few hours. (Click on menu Home more information)

xcharles718 says:

I still don't understand why FM radio was pulled.

Because you can just use these apps that you would cry if it wasn't available

Well what about us cheap ppl who like to listen to free radio without using our data plans....

Streaming radio doesn't use alot of data. Or you can buy a $3 standalone radio from Walgreens

albertleao says:

The problem is when I'm at the gym and they have dozens of tvs on. The audio of each tv is broadcast via inhouse fm stations. Used yo listen to the tv on my phone... Can't anymore.

Nice! (about the gym TV audio thing, not the lack of FM on the Lumia 920)

That's as analog as you can get

jfmanzo says:

1.5mb/minute is a hell of a lot of data. Streaming radio uses a TON of data.

Streaming radio is less than 1.5mb a minute

Len2K620 says:

YES!!! This made my day, was upset the minute I didn't see TuneIn on the Store for WP8, now I can continue listening to Pulse 87 :-D... So far this is the only app that has been consistent with knowing my previous settings... moved from Focus -> 900 -> 920 and every time I download the app all of the stations I have set as my favorites are already there :-D

Quin 2013 says:

I updated mine, but I don't see what's new about it.

kevin2577 says:

What's new is that it is functional on Windows Phone 8 devices, previously it was 7.x only

trouble210 says:

Yes!!!  Been waiting (impatiently) for this.  Doesn't have everything yet (WFAN, for example), but close enough.

p.a says:

Not being able to install TuneIn after getting my Lumia 820 was a big disappointment. It's one of the most important apps for me. So that is really good news.

breadbun says:

Excellent!  Didn't have to wait too long for this after getting my Lumia 920 a week or two ago. My favourite and most used app on both iOS and Android is now here. Great!

westex74 says:

So excited to see where Tunein was available again to download, then saw where 3/4 of my Presets are blocked. Boo. I can't imagine why a Radio Station would want to restrict it's listeners ability to listen from afar. Still, happy that the app is available for WP8!

ggonzalez777 says:

I don't understand this either because if you try tune in on windows 8 (the app), it will play all the stations that are blocked on the windows phone 8 app. How dumb is that! I really hope the update this soon.

link1873 says:

FINALLY! The one app ive been waiting for lol

mdelacoma says:

I'm confused by what you can and can't do on wp8. When I heard that the 920 didn't have fm radio, I was dissuaded from giving up my 900. I use tune in to stream live phish radio often. Is this possible on a 920 or not?

stephen_az says:

No, you put "works" in quotes to add some air of potential controversy and negativity where none otherwise exists.....

Man, you sure zinged me! Kudos, sir. I'll fix this post right about...

FindleInClev says:

I wonder if most of the channels that are blocked are from CBS radio, because a couple of the Fan stations i used to listen to stopped working on the RT app a couple weeks ago as well.  The only way you can hear them now is through  So it looks like some kind of licensing spat between CBS and TuneIn.

bryan_05 says:

Random local station works, NPR does not.

So, the whole meme from Microsoft, about "all apps for WP7 will work for WP8" wasn't really true, was it?
The latter is essentially an entirely new OS that most applications will *need* to be updated for.

Bas72 says:

It works, but it does crash quite often on my HTC 8X. Music keeps playing, but the app is gone. Still the best webradio client available! All others seem amateuristic compared to TuneIn.
