    I only installed this app a few days ago and haven't has time to really check it out until today but I gotta say so far so good! Quality sound on my phone, easy to navigate interface, and a very large wide range of music to chose from. Unlike some of the other popular music streaming apps, there doesn't seem to be any limits on artists or music to search and find on the Sirius music app. Will highly recommend!
  • Serve a 2nd vehicle for free, or use as a fix for an obstructed antenna Jun 23, 2018

    By RV Sciencephile
    By purchasing the high end SiriusXM service for one satellite receiver, you get this excellent streaming capability as a free bonus. If you have a smartphone with a decent data plan, you don’t need to increase satellite charges by adding a subscription for the other vehicle(s). Get it for one, then use your phone to stream the web based service thru the Bluetooth or cable connection to the audio system in your additional vehicle(s). It’s a terrific bargain for me, as I have 2 cars and two RV’s, and I can get full channel service for all four with just one subscription. Also, for those with vehicles (like my truck camper) that have difficulty getting a clear usable obstruction-free sat signal for their partially shadowed antenna, you can subscribe to service for the vehicle radio, then when in conditions when your antenna isn’t reliable, switch to using your smartphone for streaming to that radio from the same sat account via cell service providers. Thanks SiriusXM for offering this excellent, flexible service at a fair package price!
  • Impossible to listen to Podcasts Mar 4, 2022

    By ajsidney
    I have multiple subscriptions and frankly only have SXM because of Howard. However, every single time I pause a live show for more than a minute, it “loses connection” and drops. This is not a wifi issue btw. That requires me to reopen the player, fast forward to the point in the show and start listening again! This was not an issue a year ago. Secondly, I started listening to podcasts on SXM app. this year. Every single time I pause an episode the same thing happens noted above, and even worse some ADVERTISEMENT for some Entertainment Now channel 790 repeatedly breaks in and then interrupts a show, and begins blaring an ad for this stupid channel. This is every day up to a dozen times a day. The show is completely dropped because of this Ad! Considering I pay for uninterrupted shows (minimal normal podcast advertisements are understood) and no SXM ADS I expect to listen to anything on the App without eardrums being completely blown out by the sound level of the ad, and being irritated beyond belief that I cannot listen to anything that is talk or podcast without constant dropping out or being interrupted. Fix this error ASAP, it has been going on for at least 6 months. This is making me consider dropping all my subscriptions, you know I can stream music anywhere.
  • Great App Feb 8, 2019

    By TaxisLatka
    NEW REVIEW (Feb. 2019): Another quick fix to the annoying download issue. Great response. App is back to working great. OLD REVIEW (Feb. 2019): The new update is awful. It’s now back to the same issue of downloaded shows not opening from the last place they were being listened to. You can listen to a downloaded show for two hours and then when you go back to the app instead of it saving your place and continuing playing where it was, it goes back to some previous point at the very beginning of the show. Very annoying and it’s happened before. Thought they had it worked out but now this issue is back. Please fix as soon as possible as this makes the app almost unusable. Wish I never updated. Should’ve stuck with the last version that actually worked. Very angry. OLD REVIEW (2018): Love the updated app. It’s the best. The addition of video is pretty cool, but the Stern Shows are loaded fast (usually same afternoon). Had an issue with holding place of downloaded shows, but it appears to have been resolved. A+
  • SiriusXM, it’s not just for the car! Mar 31, 2022

    By The Gloved1
    We became SiriusXM listeners back at the end of 2012 when we bought our first car that had it. At the time, living in S.E. Missouri, the regular radio stations were horrible…..especially if you liked modern rock and modern metal! Eventually we moved to the southern tier of NY state and the radio stations here were no better. Once we got the app, we now listen all the time at the gym, out on the deck for BBQ get togethers and I’m in the process of opening a Microgreens business and listening to SiriusXM through the app during the shop setup and testing has been awesome. Stations 34 through 41 are the usuals….mainly 37 & 41. Being an old bass head from my late 80’s Cali days with the slammed street trucks, I sometimes do throwback days on 43. The selections that are offered are awesome! Life without it would be like “Masterbating with a cheese grater….sure it can be fun and exciting for awhile, but then it becomes dull and painful!” That one was for The “King of Douchbaggery” himself…..Lord Grant Random!
  • No landscape mode; update horrible for RadioClassics Jun 7, 2018

    By PetiteFrog
    UPDATE: Thanks for adding the landscape mode back - although why on earth was it removed in the first place??? I have upgraded my rating from 1 star to 3 stars. What would give it one more star - display the times of the previously played RadioClassic shows. I have no idea what played when. You provide the option to listen to earlier shows, but the segments aren’t descriptive enough so I am having to go through all of them to find the show I want to listen to. PREVIOUS REVIEW: As others have stated, not having the ability to view using landscape mode is very annoying. However, not nearly as annoying and useless as what the upgrade has done to the RadioClassics station. Before the update, I could see all the programs that played in the past 5 or 6 hours and select one of those shows - easily. Now —- you can’t see the time a previous show was played and have to guess which item it is in the viewable segments. Viewing all the segments is nearly impossible. No way to easily see and select earlier segments. The upgrade has made the RadioClassics stations impossible to navigate.

    I can find almost anything I want to listen to when and where I want to. No matter what I'm doing, even when I wanna switch things up. From classics, to classical, to heavy metal, to pod casts, to what ever I'm in the mood for at the time. Coming from someone, where music plays a part in my every day life, this really helps on the plethora and diversity of choices.
  • Very slow to start playing Feb 18, 2021

    By Straight Answers
    While I love the Sirius stations, the mobile app is problematic. Whereas Pandora almost never has any issues starting up and playing whether on WiFi or not, Sirius is horrible! 9 times out of 10 when I want to start listening I tap the station I want, from my favorites, and the little play arrow turns into a circle that spins for a very long time. Like, some days it does that for hours without ever playing. Yes, I have uninstalled and reinstalled the app. Yes I have closed the app and reopened. That has never changed anything. It is still very much a pain and very unreliable as to whether I will actually get to listen to anything via the app. On average I’d say it takes 15 -20 minutes to get it to start playing. This is regardless of whether I am in my office right by my wifi modem or out on 5g service. Just as problematic either way. Find out how Pandora is so reliable and do that, please. Otherwise, I won’t renew when this subscription expires.
  • God help you if . . . . . . Update Jun 1, 2018

    By Queenbeedlg
    Like me, you use your iPad in landscape mode. I’ve changed every relevant setting I can think of to get this app to load in landscape mode (as it once did prior to one of the latest updates) but, alas, to no avail. This is so much of a problem that saving the $20 a month I pay for this service is under serious consideration. It’s too much money to pay for the inconvenience of having to turn my iPad 90 degrees to read the app. I would have given it less than one star had that been possible. Update: I’m happy to report that the people at Sirius were listening and have addressed this landscape vs. portrait mode problem. It’s nice to know that there are still some companies out there who listen to their customer’s complaints and respond to them positively, especially in such a short period of time. Happily, I will not have to cancel my subscription, and I can recommend this app without reservation at a solid 5 stars.

    Very good app. Every so often a bit slow to open. Over all great app. Listen all the time. After the update now I have to enter user name every time. Before the update it it stayed there. The APP is getting slower to open all the time now. What's the story guys Fix it please. I am waiting for a response. It takes for ever to open app. I uninstall then reinstalled. What ever you did it's working. The app opens right away and connects immediately. Thank you

    By Lee Heath
    I really like the Sirius service. It's excellent in the car...not so much on the app. Streaming will randomly pause. It may pause for a few seconds, a few minutes or a few hours before it decides it wants to resume. I have 3 choices to undo the "Sirius Streaming Pause". 1) Patiently wait for the app to resume. 2) Press Pause. This is counter-intuitive as the streaming has ALREADY paused. 3) Change channels and miss any streaming time you had buffered. Youtube and Rumble don't have this trouble

    By Bryan Sousa
    When going to a different station in this app it should go straight to (Live) not start the show all over again, pretty frustrating when using Android Auto and you just wanna drive and go. Also the in app feature to go to a specific time point in a show doesn't really work at all. Except for (go back 1 hour) and (go live). Glitchy app that doesn't work well, has issues connecting to Sonos as well. Should be MUCH better since this is a paid service.
  • Awful, awful app Oct 28, 2020

    By JohnnyW34
    The app is awful. From what I’ve read about the app online, and from the many users who expressed the same complaints as me, I have a strong suspicion that the positive ratings on here are fake. Especially given the number of ratings versus the number of subscribers that Sirius has. I’ve had the app for a while now. Like many, I suspect, I only use it to listen to the “Howard Stern Show.” But the various functions on the app that are supposed to enable you to restart the show from scratch if you don’t tuning immediately when Howard begins, well those functions don’t always work. And if you pause the show at any point, and go back to it, more than half the time it does not resume where you left off. Sometimes, it doesn’t even happen after a pause. If you are walking somewhere listening to the show but not in real time, and you walk through a store’s WiFi or something, the play jumps to the live feed. I’ve read that these problems are very common. A lot of people with the app express this same dissatisfaction. I have brought it to the attention of Sirius, only to be told that I should delete the app and re-download it. Their customer service is as bad as their app. Frankly, because I am so reliant on the app to listen, I am strongly considering canceling my subscription altogether.
  • May 17, 2022

    By Chris Piccinich
    Adjusting my rating: 2 to 5 down from 5 of 5. App recently stops playback without warning. I have to hit the play button every 2 to 3 minutes to continue to listen to any of the programming. If I can correct this issue with a setting or something similar I would brink the overall rating of the app back up. Until then I would warn against even using it as it is inconsistent at best.
  • May 11, 2022

    By Kent Lorenz
    Not sure what happened but I've lost the ability to skip on some of the streaming channels Update (5/11/22) Sorry for the confusion on your part. This isn't about hitting the maximum skips in an hour. The buttons stopped working weeks ago and have never returned. I tried clearing the app cache, but that didn't work. I may try uninstalling the app to see if that works, but that's a hassle. I wrote this review to let the developers know that there's something broken in their app. Thanks!
  • Too many bugs Sep 3, 2019

    By DJ Joey G
    I have MANY apps on my phone and this one has to be one of the most unreliable. Too many issues to list here but the top two that make me crazy are #1 It stops working randomly mid shows, doesn't matter if its while listening to an on demand episode, a download or live. The app would go into a never ending loading state or just crash completely. #2 the most annoying and dangerous bug is when the app randomly starts playing in my pocket at the worst times. I listen to some XL rated shows with adult language and these shows that i haven't listened to for a few hours or sometimes haven't listened to that day at all will just start playing, full volume, in my pocket. The app is not running so i cant even kill it, i have to frantically turn the volume down then go into my control center and pause it. Its gotten to the point where if i’m going into certain places i have to turn my volume all the way down because i cant trust the app to not start playing, or i need to make sure the last thing i listen to is “safe”....Also when my phone connects to the bluetooth in my vehicles it just starts playing if i want it to or not, again the app isn't even running. Its ridiculous.....

    I'm a truck driver, so I'm on the road a lot. This app is the only way to listen to a few of my favourites since they won't add them to regular lineup. Every time I lose data, which is often and many times a day, the app crashes and I have to restart to get my station going again. I've about had it and about to cancel my subscription of this whole thing over this. The entire idea of having satellite radio is to have radio in places that have no radio reception or cell service. Like where I live.

    By Robert Hall
    I Use this app everyday for the last few years. Recently I started listening to the last podcast on the left and their whole catalog is messed up. Now when I download an episode my app either quits playing it when I lose service or the app crashes and I have to delete and re-download everything. I feel like this is a huge disservice to the creators of LPOTL and should be fixed asap. I've had this problem for a few weeks now I've redonloaded and updated the app and neither seem to work.
  • May 10, 2022

    By Edward Piekarski
    Unreliable. App often disconnects for no reason. Battery optimization is turned off and WiFi signal is very strong. Favorite channels randomly dissappear. Constant promotion on the UI. Looking at the other reviews and I see I'm not alone. The worst part is the tone-deaf responses from SXM. Dev. says to update app as they've rolled it back to an earlier version. Uninstalled and reinstalled. Play store has 5.10.2, IT'S THE SAME VERSION! USELESS!
  • Favorites won’t save & keep getting deleted Jun 18, 2020

    By Food Jock
    Does Sirius even read these user reviews and care about customer service? For 2 months all my favorites keep getting deleted. Lately it seems to occur almost daily, sometimes even twice in a day. Before that it had been every couple weeks. I’ve seen other reviews claiming the same thing. Do you even read the user reviews? Last month I even sent a Feedback email to tech support reporting the issue and was given a response that they will reply back within 24 hrs. Nope. Nothing. Not even a follow up. And meanwhile, the problem has gotten worse and it’s very time consuming to constantly go back & forth re adding shows to the favorites list. In addition, 3 times in the past week and as recently as last night, I haven’t been able to access anything because the app keeps saying “we’re sorry but you seem to be offline. Please check your WiFi connection or try again later.” There’s been absolutely nothing wrong with my internet & WiFi. This used to be my favorite app and I use it daily mostly for MLB Radio. But lately this app has been horrible and I’m paying too much money for an annual subscription to put up with this crap.

It’s nice to know that there are still some companies out there who listen to their customer’s complaints and respond to them positively, especially in such a short period of time. Happily, I will not have to cancel my subscription, and I can recommend this app without reservation at a solid 5 stars.

    Very good app. Every so often a bit slow to open. Over all great app. Listen all the time. After the update now I have to enter user name every time. Before the update it it stayed there. The APP is getting slower to open all the time now. What's the story guys Fix it please. I am waiting for a response. It takes for ever to open app. I uninstall then reinstalled. What ever you did it's working. The app opens right away and connects immediately. Thank you

    Great app! Unlike others, allows me to run app, close screen and put in my pocket so I can keep working and listening at the same time. Even able to take phone calls and it is still running in background. To add more-all the great stations with all kind of selections to choose from, including all the podcasts. With all the inflation now, I will never rid of my SXM! Thanks for a great product.....
  • The more I spend time with this.. May 14, 2018

    By Phantom2089
    The more I’m regretting my app update for it. Why would you fix something that was not broken?? I really hate this new update. There are more cons to point out than pro’s on this! Con: -No mix customizations (BIG NO!) -No info description on each channel and shows within that channel, nor do they provide twitter/phone number to call in the radio channel! -adding favorites just doesn’t work. -backtracking only goes so much as 3 hrs instead of 6 hrs. -there’s no schedule for when upcoming shows are going to broadcast. -channel freezes and locks if your app ended up foreclosing on you or you foreclose the app. (I was always able to resume where I left off EVEN when I foreclosed it, now it makes me lose my place wherever I’m in. REALLY FRUSTRATING ESPECIALLY WITH GRATEFUL DEAD CONCERTS!!!!) -no bright/dim light interface option, I hate how bright this design is now, especially late at night. -takes longer to connect to audio when it used to not on data connection. Pro’s: -Video on-demand for Howard Stern -audio scroller is a bit easier when you want to rewind or fast forward a lot. And that’s all the pros that’s on this app. You have got some MAJOR EDITING to BRING BACK some of the old WITH the new! I feel like my subscription has just plummeted to a mediocre service, I’m really debating on cancelling if they don’t bring back and improve their main qualities of their app. BRING BACK THE OLD APP!!!

    I have limited use of services provided, main thing is that I can listen to the various stations. Downloads when they are batched downloaded play in reverse order. If I pick a week's worth of a show the downloadsplayback in reverse order. Unless I jump in to listen in the correct order. There are certain programs that cannot be added to the favorites list, and only allows to set reminders and not download. The programs can be listened to but as stated, cannot download and only can get reminder. As for On Demand programming that is not even an option. I`ve installed and uninstalled without total satisfaction. I will check which version I have but that should not be an obstacle to being satisfied with this app.
  • Impossible to listen to Podcasts Mar 4, 2022

    By ajsidney
    I have multiple subscriptions and frankly only have SXM because of Howard. However, every single time I pause a live show for more than a minute, it “loses connection” and drops. This is not a wifi issue btw. That requires me to reopen the player, fast forward to the point in the show and start listening again! This was not an issue a year ago. Secondly, I started listening to podcasts on SXM app. this year. Every single time I pause an episode the same thing happens noted above, and even worse some ADVERTISEMENT for some Entertainment Now channel 790 repeatedly breaks in and then interrupts a show, and begins blaring an ad for this stupid channel. This is every day up to a dozen times a day. The show is completely dropped because of this Ad! Considering I pay for uninterrupted shows (minimal normal podcast advertisements are understood) and no SXM ADS I expect to listen to anything on the App without eardrums being completely blown out by the sound level of the ad, and being irritated beyond belief that I cannot listen to anything that is talk or podcast without constant dropping out or being interrupted. Fix this error ASAP, it has been going on for at least 6 months. This is making me consider dropping all my subscriptions, you know I can stream music anywhere.
  • No landscape mode; update horrible for RadioClassics Jun 7, 2018

    By PetiteFrog
    UPDATE: Thanks for adding the landscape mode back - although why on earth was it removed in the first place??? I have upgraded my rating from 1 star to 3 stars. What would give it one more star - display the times of the previously played RadioClassic shows. I have no idea what played when. You provide the option to listen to earlier shows, but the segments aren’t descriptive enough so I am having to go through all of them to find the show I want to listen to. PREVIOUS REVIEW: As others have stated, not having the ability to view using landscape mode is very annoying. However, not nearly as annoying and useless as what the upgrade has done to the RadioClassics station. Before the update, I could see all the programs that played in the past 5 or 6 hours and select one of those shows - easily. Now —- you can’t see the time a previous show was played and have to guess which item it is in the viewable segments. Viewing all the segments is nearly impossible. No way to easily see and select earlier segments. The upgrade has made the RadioClassics stations impossible to navigate.
  • CarPlay buggy, no chrome cast support but good sound quality Oct 25, 2018

    By Cypherstream
    So glad they recently added Apple CarPlay, however it’s very buggy. Many times favorites don’t load, recents may not load, or the car play screen is just blank. It does work better if you unlock your phone first, but who can do that if your driving and have your phone put down (it auto locks fairly quickly). What is wrong with SiriusXM not offering chromecast functionality? It seems this would be the easiest way to get SXM in your house. To be able to chrome cast SXM would be a great asset to listen at home when doing household work. Other than the very buggy CarPlay support and lack of Chromecast feature, the sound quality is far better than what you get on the actual satellite. You also have access to many more channels and on demand content. This is why I prefer to use the app via CarPlay instead of my cars built in XM tuner. My car only goes up to channels in the 200’s. The app has channels into the 700’s! I’m no longer missing out on Faction or the Emo Project, indie 1.0, or Rock Bar. If only CarPlay worked all the time, this would be a killer app.
  • As much as I use this app I wish it worked better. Apr 1, 2022

    By JenniferZ
    I use this app all day Monday through Friday and that involves opening and closing the app multiple times a day. At LEAST once a day it won’t load the Home Screen properly if at all and several times it tells me I’m not connected to the internet when I have full bars and can use any other connectivity app on my phone. It’s just Sirius that does it. I’m beginning to think the no internet error has something to do with CarPlay. If I unplug it from CarPlay and close the app and restart it, sometimes that works and then I just plug it back in once it’s working again. I deal with this several times a day. Also, on demand shows are not always loaded or available next day like supposed to. Instead it finally shows up late afternoon or not until next day. These issues won’t make me stop using it since I can’t miss my All Out Show on Shade 45 everyday in my work car…BUUUT, I’m not gonna lie when someone asks me if I like it or if I recommend it. Hope you guys can fix it! Thanks!
  • New features but lacking polish Nov 8, 2018

    By drew_petricc
    Lots of glitz and glamour over the new features, & call me crazy, but it actually seems *harder* to just get to my downloaded shows now... Also, if there’s something that looks cool on my home page, better remember it or keep swiping b/c it just scrolls away after a few seconds... sure it’s good to show the different options, but annoying. It also seems to have obfuscated which is actually a new show, or even to just get to what is actually playing live on 100 now. For all its faults, this was not an issue with the old version. All this complaining aside I do like the new app and addition of video clips etc. I’m just looking forward to some revision with usability/ease of use in mind—so keep it up dev team!! Thanks for a great app, I will change to five stars when updated! I do like the more streamlined way to manage/delete downloads and the addition of forward and backward skipping by a few seconds (which was sorely needed). So it’s great & I love it—that’s why I’m saying it just needs a few revisions to be the best in my opinion, thanks.

    This app used to be a lot better. It used to work without fail and while there are some organizational choices I wouldn't have made, I still liked it. Now if I turn my phone screen off it shuts the app down. I updated the app to the latest version and now while it's open it just pauses itself randomly. It's essentially unusable to have to keep my attention on it every 3 minutes. I hope this isn't for everybody and perhaps just my phone or something. Very frustrating.
  • Apr 28, 2022

    By Steven Brooks
    this app needs to be more button control friendly. it would be nice if you could change the channel without having to use the screen, it won't allow you to change channel using a three button Bluetooth headset. it would be nice if you could flip through your favorites using the up down buttons. it would also be nice if you could rearrange your favorites, as SiriusXM adds new channels and removes channels regularly. other than that this is a welcome addition in programming to my satellite radio

    Android app keeps jumping around while playing. Skipping back & forth no matter what is playing. I've uninstalled, rebooted, & reinstalled, & turned off battery optimizer. I'm at a loss. So frustrating I don't even want to listen. Been going on for a coupleonths. Considering canceling at this point, and that's a shame because I've enjoyed sirius for over a decade.
  • Mobile app doesn’t update songs on Sirius VM channels Sep 7, 2021

    By ILoveFirstWave33
    When I open the SiriusXM mobile app on my iPhone running iOS 14.7.1 (this issue has been happening for the last year and before release of iOS 14) when i see a song title i like on a particular station, i select it and listen to the song, if the next song played isn't for me, i look for a new song title on a different station…”This is when the PROBLEMS start”…all the stations showing songs that are currently being played, ARE NOT the songs being played when you select that channel !?! This happens everyday when i use the mobile app on my cell phone while using home wifi or my Sprint mobile data plan…my husband has the same cell/same iOS, but with TMobile…and has exact same issues. The only way to correct this glitch, you need to get out of the mobile app and then re-launch/log back into the SiriusXM app on your cell, so the mobile app refreshes the channels. Can you please fix this!! It’s very frustrating…thx, customer since 2013

    By Lee Heath
    I really like the Sirius service. It's excellent in the car...not so much on the app. Streaming will randomly pause. It may pause for a few seconds, a few minutes or a few hours before it decides it wants to resume. I have 3 choices to undo the "Sirius Streaming Pause". 1) Patiently wait for the app to resume. 2) Press Pause. This is counter-intuitive as the streaming has ALREADY paused. 3) Change channels and miss any streaming time you had buffered. Youtube and Rumble don't have this trouble
  • May 16, 2022

    By Bryan Sousa
    When going to a different station in this app it should go straight to (Live) not start the show all over again, pretty frustrating when using Android Auto and you just wanna drive and go. Also the in app feature to go to a specific time point in a show doesn't really work at all. Except for (go back 1 hour) and (go live). Glitchy app that doesn't work well, has issues connecting to Sonos as well. Should be MUCH better since this is a paid service.
  • May 17, 2022

    By Chris Piccinich
    Adjusting my rating: 2 to 5 down from 5 of 5. App recently stops playback without warning. I have to hit the play button every 2 to 3 minutes to continue to listen to any of the programming. If I can correct this issue with a setting or something similar I would brink the overall rating of the app back up. Until then I would warn against even using it as it is inconsistent at best.
  • May 11, 2022

    By Kent Lorenz
    Not sure what happened but I've lost the ability to skip on some of the streaming channels Update (5/11/22) Sorry for the confusion on your part. This isn't about hitting the maximum skips in an hour. The buttons stopped working weeks ago and have never returned. I tried clearing the app cache, but that didn't work. I may try uninstalling the app to see if that works, but that's a hassle. I wrote this review to let the developers know that there's something broken in their app. Thanks!
  • Too many bugs Sep 3, 2019

    By DJ Joey G
    I have MANY apps on my phone and this one has to be one of the most unreliable. Too many issues to list here but the top two that make me crazy are #1 It stops working randomly mid shows, doesn't matter if its while listening to an on demand episode, a download or live. The app would go into a never ending loading state or just crash completely. #2 the most annoying and dangerous bug is when the app randomly starts playing in my pocket at the worst times. I listen to some XL rated shows with adult language and these shows that i haven't listened to for a few hours or sometimes haven't listened to that day at all will just start playing, full volume, in my pocket. The app is not running so i cant even kill it, i have to frantically turn the volume down then go into my control center and pause it. Its gotten to the point where if i’m going into certain places i have to turn my volume all the way down because i cant trust the app to not start playing, or i need to make sure the last thing i listen to is “safe”....Also when my phone connects to the bluetooth in my vehicles it just starts playing if i want it to or not, again the app isn't even running. Its ridiculous.....

    I Use this app everyday for the last few years. Recently I started listening to the last podcast on the left and their whole catalog is messed up. Now when I download an episode my app either quits playing it when I lose service or the app crashes and I have to delete and re-download everything. I feel like this is a huge disservice to the creators of LPOTL and should be fixed asap. I've had this problem for a few weeks now I've redonloaded and updated the app and neither seem to work.
  • Least consistent app I still use Nov 12, 2021

    By Leaferguy
    This app feels like it takes two steps forward, two backwards, and then one to the right. Constantly loses the settings I saved (tune start, streaming quality, etc), and then when it does retain them, they don't work (tune start recently stopped working?). The favorites screen only lets you see six stations at a time. I do not care about the logo of the station. I want to see 15+ stations AND the song that's playing. Oh and now playing? Who knows if that's accurate (hint: it's usually not). It doesn't update if the app isn't in focus, so I get to choose between my GPS app and this one during my commute. Finally, Madison continues to ruin the experience on many of my favorite stations. I do not give a flying fish as to what she thinks about literally anything. Her voice is annoying as it possibly can be, and she manages to be on one of the stations I listen to most during both my drive to and from work. I don't get why this app is so stagnant and doesn't improve regularly. If there was a term to describe the opposite of agile, it would be whatever this app is using.

    I love the channels and music that Sirius XM offers, but this android app is seriously broken. It crashes or freezes a dozen times a day. I am always running the latest galaxy device (currently the S22 Ultra), but the app is slow and buggy, regardless. If I let the app play in the background for over 15 minutes, when I open it back up, there is very good chance it will either a) freeze and eventually crash, or b) seemingly restart itself, which loses my song position. The loss of song position is only slightly annoying when streaming the standard radio-based channels, however, when streaming the "Xtra" channels (which I love), the effect is to end the current song and start playing another. Very annoying because I often open the app up when I hear a new song that I like, and the app ends up skipping it and I don't get a chance to see the track name or artist. Please SiriusXM, spend some developer $$ and fix this app. In this day and age, there is no excuse for such buggy behavior.
  • Awful, awful app Oct 28, 2020

    By JohnnyW34
    The app is awful. From what I’ve read about the app online, and from the many users who expressed the same complaints as me, I have a strong suspicion that the positive ratings on here are fake. Especially given the number of ratings versus the number of subscribers that Sirius has. I’ve had the app for a while now. Like many, I suspect, I only use it to listen to the “Howard Stern Show.” But the various functions on the app that are supposed to enable you to restart the show from scratch if you don’t tuning immediately when Howard begins, well those functions don’t always work. And if you pause the show at any point, and go back to it, more than half the time it does not resume where you left off. Sometimes, it doesn’t even happen after a pause. If you are walking somewhere listening to the show but not in real time, and you walk through a store’s WiFi or something, the play jumps to the live feed. I’ve read that these problems are very common. A lot of people with the app express this same dissatisfaction. I have brought it to the attention of Sirius, only to be told that I should delete the app and re-download it. Their customer service is as bad as their app. Frankly, because I am so reliant on the app to listen, I am strongly considering canceling my subscription altogether.

    I'm a truck driver, so I'm on the road a lot. This app is the only way to listen to a few of my favourites since they won't add them to regular lineup. Every time I lose data, which is often and many times a day, the app crashes and I have to restart to get my station going again. I've about had it and about to cancel my subscription of this whole thing over this. The entire idea of having satellite radio is to have radio in places that have no radio reception or cell service. Like where I live.
  • May 10, 2022

    By Edward Piekarski
    Unreliable. App often disconnects for no reason. Battery optimization is turned off and WiFi signal is very strong. Favorite channels randomly dissappear. Constant promotion on the UI. Looking at the other reviews and I see I'm not alone. The worst part is the tone-deaf responses from SXM. Dev. says to update app as they've rolled it back to an earlier version. Uninstalled and reinstalled. Play store has 5.10.2, IT'S THE SAME VERSION! USELESS!
  • Favorites won’t save & keep getting deleted Jun 18, 2020

    By Food Jock
    Does Sirius even read these user reviews and care about customer service? For 2 months all my favorites keep getting deleted. Lately it seems to occur almost daily, sometimes even twice in a day. Before that it had been every couple weeks. I’ve seen other reviews claiming the same thing. Do you even read the user reviews? Last month I even sent a Feedback email to tech support reporting the issue and was given a response that they will reply back within 24 hrs. Nope. Nothing. Not even a follow up. And meanwhile, the problem has gotten worse and it’s very time consuming to constantly go back & forth re adding shows to the favorites list. In addition, 3 times in the past week and as recently as last night, I haven’t been able to access anything because the app keeps saying “we’re sorry but you seem to be offline. Please check your WiFi connection or try again later.” There’s been absolutely nothing wrong with my internet & WiFi. This used to be my favorite app and I use it daily mostly for MLB Radio. But lately this app has been horrible and I’m paying too much money for an annual subscription to put up with this crap.
  • May 7, 2022

    By Tony Picarello
    Update from May 2022: Still unstable 2.5 years after my initial review. Nothing has changed. Cancelled service. Taking my money elsewhere. Original review from October 2019: The app works fine if you play a station and don't touch the controls. But when pausing for long periods, meaning 5 minutes, or trying to skip forward or backward using the controls, the app crashes a lot. This app is definitely not ready for the Google play store... It is very much like a beta or alpha version .
  • Mar 11, 2022

    By Ryan Wilgeroth
    This app is the most convoluted, difficult to navigate, monstrosity of a media app. It is so difficult to find episodes of a show you are looking for. Be ready to listen to a show all the way through if you're casting the audio to any device. If you pause more than once the app will freeze up, and you'll have to restart the app. (And roll the dice on if the app remembers where you were in the show) It kills me that I have to use this app to listen and support 1 show.
  • TRASH CUSTOMER SERVICE Aug 31, 2020

    By JUSSLikeCandy
    I would never promote you guys the worst customer service I’ve EVER HAD I work at the T-mobile call center service and this would be unacceptable and what would be Labeled a “customer mistreat”. You couldn’t refund me my money because service were so call provided after a free trial was over. Your team didn’t even take the time acknowledge the fact that I’ve tried reaching you guys multiple times to cancel service BEFORE THE TRIAL ENDED but because yall chose to continue a service I was not using or paying for anymore this is my fault. Then soon as I got money on the card that was on the account that yall stopped trying to charge, you went ahead and took the money today. This morning I finally got a hold to someone after calling three times because the 1st two tries I the reps hung up and the messaging team I contacted before y’all opened they reply when they want. You won’t get a message back in time unless you text them multiple times or say a bad review and this happens when your ALREADY CONNECTED with a rep. Its obvious I wasn’t using the service why else would I call for a $8.79 refund it’s not that much money.
  • App broken on Carplay with iOS 15 Sep 27, 2021

    By JaoOso
    This review is for the app and it’s performance on car play. To be clear the app works great on the phone but the main reason why I have this app and the main reason why I’m subscribed to Sirius XM is to use it in the car via CarPlay. After the iOS 15 update the app really doesn’t work on CarPlay. Doesn’t load anything, favorites don’t load at all and recents load sometimes and sometimes doesn’t. Literally the app is useless at this moment. No matter what I do, wether I open the app on the phone first and then on Carplay. I reinstalled the app. I reinstalled CarPlay. I logged out and then logged back in. Restarted the phone multiple times, NOTHING SEEMS TO FIX THE ISSUE. I am currently using the Sirius XM on the cars native system but because of that I’m now forced to decide wether listening to the cars native SiriusXM or using CarPlay and not listen to SiriusXM because I can’t have both systems open and working. Hopefully there is a fix for this on its way but they should have somehow predicted and prevented this since iOS 15 beta has been out for a while and they had an opportunity to test the app with the new iOS.

    It WAS great. All of a sudden, absolutely nothing appears on the screen of the app. Blank white. Maybe a dot or an empty square where a button with text should be. I uninstalled and reinstalled. No dice. And no, I don't want to troubleshoot with customer service. Just fix the darn app. It seems MANY people are reporting issues recently.
