The ABC has launched its new audio app ABC listen.

ABC listen replaces the existing ABC Radio app and promises enhanced navigation, personalisation and content search functions.

Director of radio Michael Mason said the new app recognised the changing habits of ABC listeners.

“Our previous radio app has proved extremely popular since its launch in 2012 and this new app marks a major step forward in our ability to provide seamless and easy-to-navigate access to our enormous range of on-demand and live audio content,” Mason said. “By focusing on the user’s own behaviours and preferences it opens up our content and allows for much easier discovery.”

ABC listen provides access to 45 ABC radio stations and audio networks including the ABC’s four national networks, its eight capital city local radio stations, 10 digital stations and 23 regional radio stations. It also provides a platform for more than 130 programs and podcasts.

ABC listen is now available for free download from either the Apple Store or Google Play. ABC Radio’s triple j and triple j Unearthed apps will continue as stand-alone apps.
