Smart speakers with built-in voice assistant 'Alice' can now be used to listen to the radio. In particular, Yandex.Station, Dexp Smartbox and Irbis A received support for this function, according to a press release from Yandex.
To start the radio, just ask 'Alice' to turn on the desired radio station. You can choose the right one from several dozen broadcasters, among which are mentioned 'Maximum', 'Russian Radio', 'Silver Rain', Love Radio and others. At the same time, users are offered local versions of broadcasts based on the current location of the smart speaker.
Yandex does not disclose the terms of partnership with radio stations.
