Intent Radio

Intent-driven internet radio player

Intent Radio is an android internet radio app without a graphical user interface. It is controlled exclusively through the delivery of broadcast intents. If you do not know what a broadcast intent is, then this is probably not the app for you.

Intent Radio was written primarily to be driven by shortcuts, tasks and events triggered from other apps.

Despite its name, Intent Radio will happily play any audio media supported natively by Android, including local content.

Important: You must run the app manually at least once before Android will deliver broadcast intents. This is an Android security feature. Thereafter, even after reboots, it should not be necessary to run the app at all.


Although APK downloads are available below to give you the choice, you should be aware that by installing that way you will not receive update notifications and it's a less secure way to download. We recommend that you install the F-Droid client and use that.
