Another big name app has rocked up on Windows 10 with popular radio aggregator iHeartRadio landing on the Windows Store.

The streaming application arrives featuring full support for Cortana voice and text searches within Windows 10.

Users will be able to tell the virtual assistant what they want to hear.

Windows 10 users can also make use of the apps as part of their custom Live Tiles set up, making it easier to access favourite songs, artists and stations directly from the start menu.

The app also makes it easy for users to buy/stream favourite tracks and albums directly from Microsoft’s Groove music store/streaming service.

In a post on the iHeartRadio blog (via Engadget) the company wrote: “The iHeartRadio features you’ve come to know and love will also be right at your fingertips. So you can jam out to your favorite Custom Stations or tune in to thousands of Live Stations from across the country.

“You can also find stations “Perfect For” any mood or activity alongside our “For You” stations based on your preferences, recently listened to and saved favorites. If you love podcasts, you can check out the thousands of on-demand ones we have available, too.”
