Difficult to cancel service
by user7245 on 2021/12/06 13:45
SiriusXM makes it unnecessarily difficult to cancel service. The online account management can not be used. They force calling a customer service telephone number with a time wasting automated answering system and long hold time. Then the support personal refuse to cancel the service without more nonsense to try and upsell more subscriptions.
Wish I could give it no stars.
by anthony12275 on 2021/12/05 16:01
With each update app gets worse. App seems so busy the way it’s laid out. App also freezes often. Also the older downloads are not available. You would think at this point they would get it right.
Do not update!
by WRT345@ on 2021/12/05 15:49
I updated the app and now only one device can us the app at a time?!? So if my spouse is listening at work I can’t listen on my app.. unless I pay another $20. Guess I will be canceling my subscription.
Disappointing
by Nkh95 on 2021/12/05 04:58
Works decent most of the time
All the complaints are valid
by Mikey33625 on 2021/12/04 18:07
The app works “sometimes”, freezes or crashes when it doesn’t.
Apple Watch
by brewmancg on 2021/12/04 16:07
Please make an Apple Watch version.
Junk!
by 88BTS88 on 2021/12/04 16:00
I constantly have trouble getting logged in. At reached my boiling point and finally decided to cancel services. However, getting to page where you cancel on your online account fails to load. Now I’m stuck waiting 30 minutes to get someone from customer service to respond.
CarPlay is horrible
by db706 on 2021/12/03 19:55
I wanted to like this app. Thur implimintaion if CarPlay is horrible.
POOR INTERFACE WITH SONOS SYSTEM
by KCJoCo on 2021/12/03 18:51
I subscribed to the Sirius Platinum streaming so I could listen to it on my Sonos stereo system. I was particularly interested in what they call “Xtra Channels” that show up at different times, especially holiday channels. I recently learned that the “Xtra Channels” aren’t available for streaming on the Sonos app. ?!?!?! Even worse, the support and customer service staff at Sirius aren’t aware of that issue so they’ll tell you seven different things to try… The Sonos support page spells out that the Xtra channels aren’t available - apparently that aspect of the Sirius app doesn’t interface with Sonos..downgraded my subscription to basic streaming but I’m a very disappointed customer.
Last version is broken
by efibendor on 2021/12/03 18:45
Audio just randomly pausing every couple of minutes. Could not get it to play 5 min continuously.
Fire whoever implemented this
by Construct on 2021/12/03 18:40
Like a lot of thoughtless, myopic and poor behaviour from the SiriusXM team, the choice to open the app to the new Christmas station by default is absolutely ridiculous and pushes me closer than ever to cancelling my subscription. Don’t do stupid things like this.
Doesn’t work!
by Kgpossible on 2021/12/03 14:05
The channel I want to listen to doesn’t work. The shows will not download. I called and after an hour they told me to call a different number. It was confirmed I have the right subscription. Everything works in my car fine.
Disaster with Carplay
by Great when it worked on 2021/12/03 02:18
The app rarely works with CarPlay and you end up having to mess with the phone to pick the channel etc. Hard to be handsfree while driving if you want to listen to anything. I love the content but in this day and age CarPlay is a must!
Like it.
by Shanexxl on 2021/12/03 01:42
Enjoy listening to many different stations.
Hot Garbage
by FikaFan on 2021/12/02 20:41
This app is terrible. Crashes all the time. Will keep saying can’t connect or experiencing technical issues. I get Sirius free through my credit card and it’s not even worth the hassle. Canceling asap.
App Simply Will Not Load
by XxX_V1ll4g3r_xXx on 2021/12/02 19:45
Sirius is perfectly fine… when I can actually use the app. But for some reason it simply can’t bring itself to work. Constantly gives me errors before I’m able to play any music. It shouldn’t be a connection issue because any other app on my phone works fine.
App Terrible
by jmc1a1 on 2021/12/02 19:44
App works properly about 50% of the time.. This has been around long enough to expect a lot better..
Apple Watch

You know what would be really sweet? If you guys could make an apple watch version of this app so I don’t have to bring my phone into the gym.
App is trash

The app is horrible. Been horrible for awhile now. The only app worse is the Sirus app on android.
Worst app
by RideBurton05 on 2021/12/02 18:19
This app never loads, always lags, always pauses and then restarts the show. If there an award for worst app in the world they would win it!
Freeze up
by 7Tguns on 2021/12/02 18:13
What’s with the too-frequent app freeze up?
App is trash
by Cletus1079 on 2021/12/02 18:02
I’m not sure sure how many bidens are developing this app but it’s awful. Randomly pauses when listening to stations, disconnects half the time, etc. Are things going to get fixed or are you going to continue to steal money like a commie??? Time to find another product that actually is worth paying for.
Stops at every commercial break
by Zzz~~~~~~ on 2021/12/02 01:06
Yeah, I listen cable news. This app stops at every commercial break. I have to switch to another channel then switch back it will continue. This only start to happen couple weeks ago.
Good music channels but…
by Crazy2bme60 on 2021/12/01 16:10
Over all I do like the variety of music and programming. And I would subscribe if it were not for the sound quality I receive from the app. I get much better sound quality from other apps. But the programming and channels are right on. Just improve the sound output.
Account access

I need to change how I pay SiriusXM
Love this app with a few caveats
by VectorZ on 2021/11/30 18:48
Overall I love this app, but I don't understand the skip limitations. I only get 6 an hour, why? Pitbull's station always remains in my favorites even though I remove it over and over. I wish you could down vote songs so they would not play ever again.
Terrible
by Atergo53 on 2021/11/29 14:58
This app does not perform as advertised. I have never been able to skip any songs and calling or leaving messages online has not resolved the problem. They simply keep repeating the same old failed trouble shooting steps. Over the phone (once you are able to actually talk to someone to address the problem) I could barely understand them. Plus, their selection process for music is not easy to negotiate in regards to their selection.
Broken

Bring back the oldies
by win0202 on 2021/11/26 22:50
Why take away the 50’s n 60’s ? Not everyone is into the new aged robot sounding music n I’m in my 20’s so no I’m not old I grew up listening to the oldies with my grandparents, there was way more talent back then come on pls give us back our oldies be nice n Merry Christmas!
Doesn’t Work
by MININAV on 2021/11/25 21:53
Apps that don’t recognize the password or email that you JUST USED TO SIGN UP will take more time to correct than what I’m interested in.
Sign In issues
by Smokey@USAF on 2021/11/25 14:57
I have tried to sign in on the app with no luck. This is going on three weeks. Very disappointing!!!
So Many Glitches
by Shan007545507 on 2021/11/25 03:42
Sometimes the app works and other times it seems to freeze on certain shows so then you can’t hit the rewind or fast forward. And then a lot of the times it doesn’t leave your place in a show. Disappointing. I use this app mostly to listen to Howard Stern and I hate how glitchy the app gets.
Technical issues
by impala6tres on 2021/11/25 03:21
I’ve downloaded the app for about a month. I’ve been trying to log on but it tells me there are technical issues. Please help.
This app is beyond trash.
by Tony_AZ on 2021/11/24 06:05
Stops playing every fifteen minutes or so. I am beyond done. Canceling tomorrow.
Love Channel streaming- A Terrible Decision
by Professional on 2021/11/24 02:45
The decision to stop satellite transmission of the Love channel is one of the worst decisions your company has made lately. The main reason my wife and I subscribe to XM is to listen to the Love channel. Without this feature, we plan to cancel our subscription in the near future.
ZERO STARS -Consistently bad for years
by SAH287 on 2021/11/23 12:22
I have never had more problems with any other app than I do this app. You never know if it’s going to work or not. Currently, it won’t connect - keeps telling me I don’t have internet. I have restarted my phone, uninstalled, reinstalled.. etc. nothing works. If it weren’t for Andrew Wilkow I would never pay for this app or service again.
Problem launching app
by 2134iii on 2021/11/22 13:35
The app refuses to launch. It just has the opening logo and won’t go any further. Downloaded new update. Uninstalled/reinstalled. Nothing.
Great radio channels, bad app
by hannibalmo76 on 2021/11/21 22:27
SiriusXM is great. Phish Radio alone is wonderful. But this app is super buggy. It regularly crashes, randomly asks me to log in, and does not cast well to a Chromecast. There is also often a disconnect between what is playing on the speakers and what the app says is playing. Songs restart and end abruptly then pick back up in the middle. It’s a mess.
App does not work!
by stoly on 2021/11/21 20:05
After the update I can no longer sign in. It keeps repeatedly sending me back to log in screen????
Worst app
by Grod62 on 2021/11/21 16:51
I downloaded this app and have yet been able to sign in to my account. It ALWAYS says that they are having issues, to try back later. FIX THIS
Great Selections, but…
by Radar O'Reiley on 2021/11/21 14:18
What the heck is with ALL THE UPDATES? SiriusXM often hits users with 4 UPDATES PER MONTH and sometimes 2 updates per week. For those of us living in the sticks and NOT having internet service, we have to update over cellular service and by doing so, we get THROTTLED by our service provider. I rarely listen to FM stations anymore and enjoy all the selections & choices available through SiriusXM but just give us updates twice per year instead of twice per week!
Love XM but
by Jimmy Huckstep on 2021/11/21 12:50
The app could have a better UI and be easier to navigate. For example it’d be really convenient if the skip/previous buttons could switch between favorite channels or all channels. With a setting in settings to select either favorites or all. This would be great when driving and my is connected with Bluetooth or CarPlay. Much like how Dash Radio does this already.
Needs a Watch App
by Capsfan16 on 2021/11/21 12:34
App works good, I like the favorites section and assigned NHL Team Channels. It makes it ALOT easier to find games. But can someone please tell me why #SiriusXM App still doesn’t have a watch app?

Not working
by RhondaB70 on 2021/11/20 20:05
Is there a bug or something? I have the app on my iPhone and it was playing fine but now I keep getting an Error message due to technical difficulties?
CarPlay doesn’t work
by Joe9439 on 2021/11/19 18:15
CarPlay does not work at all. Favorites don’t load. Nothing plays. App freezes.
Doesn’t work as often as it does.
by afisherdva on 2021/11/19 03:32
Half the time when you start the app in CarPlay it tells you you don’t have any favorites set up even though you do. Now it starts playing on its own and using up all my data. I’m getting throttled now. The subscription is so not worth the annoyance.
The Blend
by Mad gmama on 2021/11/18 20:07
I think the new Blend is too bland and generic. I really liked the mix it used to have. I can’t find the right combination of music now.
Please
by thawestcoastg on 2021/11/18 00:33
Please add it compatible with Apple Watch app
Amazingly bad
by thomasruns on 2021/11/17 23:56
It takes true vision and commitment to make an app this bad and consistently keep it this bad for years.
No options for playback speed
by Aanjilah on 2021/11/17 18:35
I can't believe in 2021 that I can't play their archived talk shows at 1.5 speed. Every other player has this option. The interface is not easy to navigate.
Are You Still Listening to Music on the app you Opened to Listen to Music?!
by Rating and dating on 2021/11/16 20:41
No clue why, but when I open my music app (to listen to music) it has to stop playing music every 10-15 minutes, to ask me if I still want to listen to music? Is there a point to this feature, aside from killing the vibe every 15 mins? I keep my phone on me and open in order to use the app, which is dumb. XM radio is nice bc you can put it on and not have to play DJ. EXCEPT ON THIS APP - PLEASE DISABLE “ARE YOU STILL LISTENING” PROMPT. Easier solution I guess is to just close the app and use Spotify Premium.
Apple Watch app
by mboytwo on 2021/11/16 16:09
Can you please make an Apple Watch app so I can see what’s playing so I don’t have to open the app?
Why? Please Fix It!
by newbonmot on 2021/11/16 14:14
Favorite-ed shows are being mysteriously removed from my fave list. When I try to favorite again, it won’t stick. Pressed star to add, “added to favorites” came up, star went solid, then went blank again. This bug is a PEST.
App does not work with HomePod streaming anymore
by dalexhouston on 2021/11/16 13:11
Until HomePod upgraded to 15.1.1 you could connect via the Bluetooth on an iPhone connection and listen on a HomePod. Now, the app and HomePod no longer talk to each other. Other apps work to stream to HomePod so it’s obviously an issue with how this app connects. Very disappointing.

by Maddd1966 on 2021/11/13 18:27
My subscription includes college sports channels 954 thru 994 but they are nowhere to be found on the app. Please add those channels to the app.
App fails most of the time
by Decypher44 on 2021/11/13 05:04
It can’t seem to load/play podcasts and rarely plays stations. I’m not sure what their problem is, but they need to correct it. For how much we all pay for satellite radio, it’s the least they could do!
App times out when trying to sign in
by stczztop on 2021/11/12 23:40
Haven’t been able to login in to the app for over a month. I enter my login and then the SiriusXM logo appears and flashes and flashes, but nothing happens. Really disappointing. Updates haven’t fixed anything.
The worst
by Monkimama on 2021/11/12 02:09
This is by far THE WORST app for streaming. I pay tons of money to NOT have to deal with shorty connections or shows not being posted in a timely manner. Awful! Fix it!
Least consistent app I still use
by Leaferguy on 2021/11/12 00:14
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.
Bad update no skip adverts
by Kuadratic on 2021/11/11 13:58
The latest version of the app no longer allows you to skip through advertisement so now you not only have to pay for this app, at least to get the meaning for channels, but you also have to listen to advertising. Horrible
CarPlay is terrible
by kidbrax on 2021/11/11 13:24
This is strictly for CarPlay. It just doesn’t even work half the time. The list of recently played is wrong most of the time. The Channels section just goes blank out of nowhere. There is no way to just list all the channels and go through them. There’s no way to just enter a channel number to go to it.
Having trouble adding any channels to favorite
by ismjihn on 2021/11/11 03:39
This is bizarre. I’m not able to add any channels to my favorite at all since I have to use my iPhone for radio show lately. I googled the instruction and tabbed all the stars I could for any channels or shows. It just wouldn’t show it under favorite. Nor I am able to modify anything in the favorite tab. They really need to take a deep look at this bug.

Terrible App!
by vuvugk on 2021/11/10 21:14
This app is horrible I have been fighting for it to work for the past year. For what I pay to have the availability to the app it irritates me that I can’t use it. Initially it updated and started telling me all my login info was incorrect which just the day before I had been listening to the app without issues. Now it just sits on a blue screen with faces of Sirius Xm people. I have called many times to resolve the login issue which never got resolved because it is a problem in the Sirius xm Client system no one can fix now I am so mad I don’t think I should waste my time to get the app to work. I hate hate hate this. I am not sure I will be renewing my subscription.

Lots of issues like the app won’t load even with a strong 4G signal… app just hangs there… once Jim and Sam leaves … I’ll be calling the company to have them erase my screen name and password…. SiriusXM CarPlay is an F’N joke
Frequently doesn’t work
by tygkol on 2021/11/10 19:54
The worst app is be ever used and for such an expensive subscription. Frequently app has issues and I’m unable to use. Frequently I lose all my favorites which is a huge pain. I’ve been so frustrated with this app that I’ve even canceled my subscription multiple times over it because of the stress it caused. Entertainment subscription should not involve stress, imo. Use at your own risk!

by Fireonice02 on 2021/11/10 16:20
I love the app when it works but it picks and chooses when it wants to work correctly. It will randomly delete my favorite channels, crash in the middle of listening and on demand content gets hung up and frozen often. It seems to only be issue with the app the on demand content in my truck works every time.

SAD!
by (Walter55) on 2021/11/09 18:26
I was really luvin my SiriusXM radio, untill they took away my most fav channel, 40’s music on my music only subscription. Yeah it’s on PC streaming, but I needed it on my radio, in the car, I’m on SSI, limited income, and am not going to upgrade any subscription, it’s kinda crappy, you should be grandfathered in and not lose that channel. So I’m not considering keeping SiriusXM because you keep taking my favs away, if you want to take away channels, take the rap ones away, what the heck does a senior citizen need with rap stations, take those from me and return my 40’s! Thank you.

CarPlay app is unusable
by mrtux543 on 2021/11/09 04:06
I mostly use this app to listen in my car, which does not have XM but does have CarPlay support. The app is completely unstable on CarPlay and has been for months. Stations do not load half the time, and the menus are cumbersome to use especially while driving.

by CecilPeoplesForPrez on 2021/11/08 21:32
Half of the time this app doesn’t work. All of the shows in my favorites will disappear and it can last days in some cases before it starts working again. The interface is terrible, and the search function almost never works. “No search results found for Howard Stern” What a joke.

Please get an app for the Apple Watch!

Constantly loses connection to Bluetooth even though every other app has no issues ever. And why does it stop randomly no matter what channel you listen to? I shouldn't have to keep closing and reopening the app then finding where I left off whenever I want to listen to something
Unwanted rap noise
by MaineManMike on 2021/11/06 11:10
For some reason now every time I open the app it opens a rap Pandora station. I rarely use the serious app for Music and I definitely don’t listen to rap. Every time I connect I have to stop the rap junk, and try to figure out what the last thing I was listening to so I can search for it. As far as I can tell there’s no way to make the app stop doing this. I’m getting ready to delete and cancel my subscription and just listen to Howard stern on YouTube. The show was better years ago anyway.
Horrible
by J_a_VI_Er on 2021/11/06 02:28
DO NOT BUY THIS APP. IT IS A HUGE ANNOYING PROCESS TO CANCEL, VERY UNNECESSARY AND THEY SHOULD MAKE IT EASIER TO CANCEL. I bought the subscription by accident and when I went to cancel I had to chat with a bot, purely annoying and they waste your time in the process, If you know you have no intentions on fully using the app, DO NOT BUY!!!
Still no fix for the CarPlay iOS 15 issue
by 1602Mike on 2021/11/05 16:27
Still broken. You actually have IT people on the payroll right?
Needs some serious updates
by ant236923 on 2021/11/04 17:25
The app is horrendous with CarPlay Every time i use it I get “Menultem does not exist” when changing stations What’s the point of an app that can be used in a secondary vehicle and support CarPlay if you still need to use the app on the phone to control it because it will be controlled through CarPlay
App is bad
by RussOniPhone on 2021/11/04 03:32
Please fix this app it’s terrible on CarPlay
Does not update on iOS 15
by CA DogMom on 2021/11/04 00:11
Song titles still do no update on screen. This has been the case for awhile now. Instead of pushing out useless updates, do a “bug fix” since there are numerous complaints on the same issue. I’m paying for a premium service that is full of bugs and doesn’t work.
I Love Channel 90 so I bought Premium Pkg
by RealTennesseeMcCoy on 2020/04/05 16:13
I am huge racing fan and especially L❤️VE NASCAR and LeMann racing fan. I began listening to XM Radio my 2005 BMW X-5 and I’ve had it ever since. Now, SirusXm Radio, Initially, I only listened to channel 90 Nascar Radio. Over years I have listened to ESPN OR Fox SportS during college football season. We have it in all 4 cars and two of the tractors. I had not deeply explored other channels until I begin using the app on my mobile device when I’m mowing in Spring amd Summer 12-16 hours a week. They even have workout music by the decade and most recently added Indy Channel, with hosts, Jack Arute and AJ Allmendinger ! Call and they will negotiate a price with you. Only one warning..if you give a credit card number they will auto renew every year. I did not like that and it took a month for them to understand I would either be billed at home the old fashioned way- or cancel. Auto renew takes away a locked in price. They renew at market price.. which was always double the rate I got when I called or this last period I did online via chat session.
Awful, awful app
by JohnnyW34 on 2020/10/28 16:46
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.
Serve a 2nd vehicle for free, or use as a fix for an obstructed antenna
by RV Sciencephile on 2018/06/23 13:55
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!
Too many bugs
by DJ Joey G on 2019/09/03 21:23
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.....
Great App
by TaxisLatka on 2019/02/08 22:43
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+
Something w/accessibility for all ages.
by lil'fyre on 2019/11/17 23:15
I LOVE Apple Play, don’t get me wrong!! And unfortunately in some newer cars you’ll have to pay for the feature of have Apple Play. I can only assume it’s because the Xirius option is as basic as it can get. Normally, that’s nothing to be bothered about (I’ll just pay for the dealership to ‘install Apple Play’). The eye opener for me was when I bought my now favorite modern car; A 2019 Hyundai Kona. It came with both higher ends of both media options. At first I stuck to what I knew, Apple Play. But the I started leaving Apple Play off, and realizing how much I was enjoying Xirius and the huge variety they offered. And, the price for a subscription was insanely good for all it has (you can customize what you want as well). My favorite is being able the listen to whatever I was, in the car, and picking it up again via my phone, or tablet. Thanks for making options for consumers!!!
No landscape mode; update horrible for RadioClassics
by PetiteFrog on 2018/06/07 23:02
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.
Favorites won’t save & keep getting deleted
by Food Jock on 2020/06/18 20:38
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.
CarPlay buggy, no chrome cast support but good sound quality
by Cypherstream on 2018/10/25 02:17
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.
Least consistent app I still use
by Leaferguy on 2021/11/12 00:14
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.
God help you if . . . . . . Update
by Queenbeedlg on 2018/06/01 14:24
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.
New features but lacking polish
by drew_petricc on 2018/11/08 20:01
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.
The more I spend time with this..
by Phantom2089 on 2018/05/14 23:02
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!!!
Sirisously Addicted
by Cindy.Curl.Beye.Iowa on 2018/09/05 14:10
I can no longer listen to regular FM radio. I love my Sirius. Wish you would have done more of a tribute to David Cassidy. A channel for a short time in his honor would be amazing. At the same time, 70’s On 7 should be playing more of David’s stuff from his solo albums, as well as Partridge Family recordings; definitely not enough of the latter, and absolutely none of the forbearing. David broke many records for various things in his career, which widely go unrecognized. I was really disappointed to see no periodicals in his memory, especially a Rolling Stones mag dedication. Such a talented artist should be remembered. I also enjoy 60’s On 6 to get my Mad Men fix; love your regular morning DJ - he’s been everywhere! Cowboy Bob & the 40’s Channel are greatly appreciated when I’m missing my grandparents. I also use the Toddler Channel a lot for my grandchildren. And when I’m feeling a little blue, it’s wonderful that I can listen Christmas music any time of the year to cheer me up! Any chance we could have a Dean Martin channel for a short while? Frank’s channel don’t play him enough. What a legend! And believe it or not, Lawrence Welk still has a huge fan base that tunes in to Public TV every Saturday night to watch his reruns... The Welk Channel, at least during the holidays ? Love you guys. Never go away! Sincerely, Faithful Subscriber Cindy Beye Marshall County, Iowa
TRASH CUSTOMER SERVICE
by JUSSLikeCandy on 2020/08/31 13:08
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
by JaoOso on 2021/09/27 01:37
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.
Mobile app doesn’t update songs on Sirius VM channels
by ILoveFirstWave33 on 2021/09/07 19:54
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
Something has changed!
by B& aid on 2020/01/31 09:23
I have been an XM Radio listener for years and my favorite channel is Radio Classics. I have used the app for years to catch up on content I might have missed. The app used to work well for listening to shows that had already aired. However, after they added Pandora features to the XM app, the app became unreliable. Before, switching from segment to segment worked well and the skip forward feature worked well. Now however, as you near the end of one segment, you can no longer reliably click on a different story segment and have the app react.... the sound just stops and you get a spinning wheel. Nothing happens. You can close the app and restart it sometimes to get it to work but here lately, even that is not working. I even deleted the app and re-installed but no joy. This has become exceedingly frustrating and totally ruins one of the main benefits of subscribing to the digital content service. I wish companies would more thoroughly test their updates before “breaking” perfectly good applications.
This App is Lame
by MSTampaFL on 2020/05/22 01:28
No matter how many updates they release, this app is still a PIECE OF JUNK. And I'm tired of being polite about it. First, the saved on-demand favorites randomly disappear causing me to have to re-save them. Sometimes a reboot will bring them back, sometimes not. This bug has been in the last 3 or 4 versions. Also, the app won't "let go" of what I was listening to before to go to live or another choice. Example, listening to an on-demand news episode and then wanting to go to the live channel, the wheel just spins and spins and the eventually goes back to the main menu with the prior show still stuck in the player. Shutting down the app and restarting doesn't fix it. And there is no longer a go "Live" button in the on-demand GUI. The only workaround I've found is that you have to change to another channel and then go back to the channel you want in order for the player to clear and "let go" of what you were previously listening to. Is there some excuse SiriusXM can't hire competent developers to fix this app? Especially since we pay extra to use it???
Volume Bar?
by Lwmavrik on 2017/12/21 21:07
Nice app for the most part, but some silly omissions...Volume Bar for iPad?..., iPhone has it...albeit flawed...it needs to stay on the screen permanently and be further down so you don’t run into the other bar above it that handles rew/ff.... I waited for years for a last channel "jump to" button so you can quickly toggle between two channels?!? Recent‘s from the latest update covers that... it’s about time! I have felt for years like the people who develop this app never use it, because if you’ve ever used a television remote control in your life an A/B button and the volume button is what you use the most and if you haven’t noticed, the volume buttons on phones are often not so easy, particularly if you have a case on it! Thus the volume needs to stay on the LCD screen at all times not appear and disappear ...once you have touched the button on the side, why would you then need to then slide over to the one that appears on the screen.. it’s moronic!! Someone needs to make more of an effort and this can be 5 stars!
Downloads DO NOT WORK
by edbeaton on 2018/06/01 23:14
What’s the point of having a download feature if I still need a connection?? I’ve downloaded on-demand episodes, and they played back fine, until I lost my cell/WiFi signal (my commute includes areas w slow to no connection for stretches). So to me this means that the app is not accessing whatever file is downloaded locally to the phone, and I’m using data to access something I supposedly downloaded to use later. Downloads in previous versions were buggy (also looked for data connection), but I eventually was able to get to episodes already downloaded. Please fix this!!! Update: so the top complaint (landscape on iPad) is fixed, but downloads still don’t work. Yes the downloads complete (didn’t have that issue previously), but you CAN’T ACCESS the “downloaded” files. I get the spinning icon over the play button when selected from the downloads folder (buried in the settings area as ppl have complained about before) and essentially freeze the app. Who do I have to call to get reimbursed for all the data I’m burning through since I can’t download over WiFi to then listen later???
Can’t sign in
by teaboneski on 2020/04/02 01:03
I’ve been using this app for years and there are always issues. The current one (and it’s kind of a big one) is that I can’t get passed the login screen. I’ve been trying to log in since March 11th, when I was logged out randomly (which happens occasionally with most subscription apps, so no big deal). Today is April 1, and I still haven’t been able to log in. I know my credentials, so that’s not the problem. I can still log into my account on the web, it’s just the mobile app I can’t sign into. I type in my credentials and the SiriusXM logo pops up and loads indefinitely. I’ve reached out to support (phone and email) but it’s impossible getting in touch right now, which is understandable in the current circumstances. I get it, I just don’t want to be paying for something I can’t use. You also can’t cancel your account without speaking to a representative. As stated above, that’s nearly impossible right now. And there’s no online option to cancel. Not sure what to do at this point.
Sometimes it works
by Thome258 on 2019/11/06 13:06
This app has to be the worst app for issues. Sometimes it works fine then they update it and it never fails that it causes issues. If you email customer service you get the same response every time. They tell you to delete the app and reinstall it. I don’t want to have to do that at least once a month because then I lose all the shows I’ve downloaded . I don’t have unlimited data so I like that I can download the shows I’ve missed onto the app to listen to in the car. I just wish it was more consistent and didn’t have an issue every time they put out an update. Right now the issue is that if I stop listening to a show and go back to it later it will restart from the beginning and not where I left off. Then I have to try to figure out where I was. I wish they’d add a forward button that only went like 20 seconds instead of having to either forward past a whole segment or slide to another part of the show but not knowing where you’ll end up stopping.
Free at Last!
by Fadiddle on 2019/07/18 00:49
With all the other great providers of streaming music that are free out there, this was the best thing they could have done. We are already paying for the service, and requiring additional payment like it was before for the streaming service, you turned many people away. Not just from streaming but from your service altogether. That would be like my internet service saying I had to pay for service on each device that was connected to the same service, I was already paying for. Glad y’all were able to buy pandora and work it out for us(the paying customers) to enjoy your service the way it should be; “Anyway we want to enjoy it, Anywhere we want to enjoy it.” Keep doing business like this, and you’ll not only have me as a loyal customer, but many, many more!
Music w/out interrupting commercial.
by NanaLucyB on 2019/06/24 19:12
I wish to thank series for the music that I enjoy which is sometimes find music to relax me and I enjoy the bridge crossover I enjoy their all-time comedy show which is like with them the talk show I forgot what they called it has that all time TV shows as what I like and the most important no commercials that’s what I enjoy thank you very much. I I enjoy it very much that I pass on the words to others to picture at XM radio in fact I talk to my daughter into trying it for a while so it’s up to her and her husband to find out if they like it without commercials they love the kids songs cause I got five now so we’ll see how that goes because they they have different taste of music compared to me I love the all timers they like the updated type music all right thank you very much.
Not crazy about the update
by missjubilada on 2018/05/16 17:18
I use this app all the time and I’m really frustrated by some of the changes in the update. It’s fine for listening to music but I also love the Radio Classics channel and the update is horrible for that. You used to be able to see the past few hours of individual shows, as well as the upcoming few hours of individual shows. Now all it shows is the past 45 minutes or so and the title of the hours long “Radio Classics” or “ When Radio Was” but not the individual programs being broadcast. And shows what commercials are played during that 45 minutes. Who would care about that?! It also used to let you choose individual programs as favorites to star ( The Jack Benny Program or Suspense, for example). Now the only options appear to be the 2 Radio Classics or When Radio Was shows ( which consist of several hours of individual programs that seem to be impossible to see within the app now). Why would an update provide fewer features than the old version ? Very frustrating. Please fix.
Horribly Unstable
by SoFar87 on 2018/04/18 11:16
This app is a disaster. Continually has issues saying it cannot determine my location so it won’t load. Which makes no sense as my WiFi and cellular networks are working perfectly. Live in a major city and never have other app issues when this happens. Definitely happens more after a recent update which always seems to make things worse. The volume bar is hidden and the scrolling is terrible because the bar is too small and not sensitive at all. I clearly have no clue how their QA development team tests the app in real world scenarios and things is production ready. In fairness there are some great features (when the app works) and the UI is pretty decent. But some of the basic functionality for volume, scrolling within an stream like Howard Stern, and overall application stability are a disaster. Sirius has no competition. They clearly Need to just focus on the basics of building a rock solid app and stop with all the gimmick junk. Subscriber since their beginning but very disappointed they continue to ruin this app. And for the record, these issues happen on a brand new iPhone X.
Great once you you can get what they promise.

I have loved having SiriusXM. I received it as a gift from my daughter so I could listen to baseball. With it, I can hear our beloved Cleveland Indians from my home in New England. (We lived in northeast Ohio for 17 years.). Problem was it took days and several calls to get what my daughter paid for. The station I needed didn’t come in on my radio and it seemed to be quite a problem to get it to work. Worse yet, my husband on a totally different account tried to add the Indians station, and while SiriusXM was quick to charge him for the extra station, they failed to let him know that for some reason his brand new car had the wrong type of radio to get the higher stations. (He already has a basic XM radio package, so still have no clue what the issue was.) The reps that help are very nice, but it should be as easy to get the stations you are looking for, as it is for the XM folk to take your money.
Garbage App
by THE-MACHINE on 2021/07/16 17:34
This app is complete garbage, it will constantly stop playing rendering it completely useless. I have been a customer for over 15 years and can honestly say, the customer service has become dismal. I called to get technical support, it was answered by someone who spoke English poorly and was hard to understand. I was then transferred to their “Advanced Technical Support” and again was answered by another person who didn’t speak clear English l. But, as a bonus, this person was obviously reading from a script and began asking questions the had nothing to do with solving the problem. I had made it clear that I was calling from the very phone the app was on, this individual asked me several times to attempt to access a channel on the app. I explained about 5 times that I can not play the application and talk on the phone simultaneously. After the 5th time of exposing this, I eventually said this was a waste of time and hung up. With out resolving my issue, I’m now here, extremely frustrated. If you’re expecting good service, think again.
Bogus product
by jimmm37522579000 on 2020/03/24 14:56
This is review for Sirius xm in general. What a pain of a product. I’ve been a subscriber for years. It’s always been a hassle. I always had to call to get he same deal, over and over again. I’d have to spend half an hour on the phone every 5 months to get my radio for $25 even then they would always automatically renew me even when I’d specifically ask them not to, and of course the automatic renewal would be at triple the price. So every time I have to call and spend all that time on the phone to get refunded and put back on the same deal I’ve always had. I finally had enough of wasting my time on all that so I cancelled all together. After receiving 100 phone calls from them and me expressing my issues, they told me they would give me a full year, continuing at the price I always paid. They confirmed I would still have all my channels. Well my radio renewed and it’s missing both Howard stern channels; the whole reason I subscribed. So there’s another 45 minutes on the phone to cancel and get my refund. Sirius has a great product but why can’t I just continue paying the same amount to get my channels? I don’t understand how such a big company can be so difficult. I just want to pay for the product and not have all his hassle. The process of trying to renew feels like I’m buying a car every time. I’d love to continue giving Sirius my money, hopefully one day they decide to start running their business with some class and customer support.
Listening to ‘the radio’ is still a great way to go! :D
by James Tormé on 2019/04/18 00:55
Even in this age of overstimulation and emphasis on the visual, listening to a good old radio show is still a totally fulfilling experience and one that is uniquely “my time”. Do you listen. You reflect. And you can do something else all the while (like drive, guard a present pod, or fix somebody’s rear left suspension housing) without feeling held hostage at all. A lot of people who don’t have the time to read a lot get the majority of their outside perspectives on life from listening to the radio on that daily commute, when they are, for a time, a ‘captive audience’ for life‘s commentators. This can be a good thing or a bad thing depending on your perspective. But at least it allows them to think about topical stuff for a minute… And in that time their mind escapes some of that add you to build up by the daily grind.
Very slow to start playing
by Straight Answers on 2021/02/18 19:39
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.
The redesign has made it so much worse
by Ben B 84 on 2018/06/22 03:40
I love SiriusXM. I’m a streaming-only customer... I live in NYC and never drive. So this app and the web app are the only ways I listen to SiriusXM. The content is what keeps me coming back. However, this application post-redesign a few months ago is one of the worst I’ve ever seen. Something basic: entering the app, you’re sometimes prompted by one of those “rate this on iTunes” dialogs. Ok, fine. Everyone needs to keep their rating up, I get it. However, the modal for that interaction doesn’t have an overlay that shows that other actions in the application are disabled. It looks like the other functions of the player... play/pause, etc. are usable. So I spend 20 seconds thinking the app is broken, until I realize there’s a modal for review in the foreground. Then I start streaming. That works fine, until I encounter connectivity issues, which is most of the commute in NYC. The “go live” button isn’t a button.. it’s just text, and has no indication that it’s been pressed (which is mobile app dev 101). It feels like the press event hasn’t happened. I’m usually sure that it didn’t, and that the app is broken. Most of the time I terminate the entire app and reload it to get a working stream. Honestly, you should fire anyone involved with the redesign of this application. They don’t have enough experience to develop a coherent mobile application. Whoever implemented the previous version seemed to know what they were doing.
Yada yada nanu nanu
by turbolarry52 on 2019/03/21 14:55
Just an update - I'm not adding any new updates - who knows If it improves things or not. Sirius are you responding to these postings? I have an iPhone 6, using iOS 10.3, no intentions to upgrade my iOS for numerous reasons. No content has been downloaded, so I don't understand - 3.x Gb storage. That much ? With no downloaded content? Does the basic app use that much storage? Btw - howard off again - another week ? Week of 3-18. Must be nice ! As far as the reviewer wrote about updating iOS one iPhone I have the latest and greatest and now my serious app is crashing. Not because I'm very low on memory, but it's worked before those conditions. I do agree that it's annoying for example that if I see that Riley Morgan is scheduled on Howard 101 the something entirely different. These apps are designed by developers that should be able to solve these problems and resolve the issues. I've been looking for employment for a long time and I am a graphic designer was some interactive design skills. So it baffles me that you have developers who haven't gotten it right and got these issues resolved. So Sirius XM hiring manager, hire me! Visual, marketing and technical problem solving is what I do best. With a little insight and team effort, i'll get all these issues solved.
Ok but crowded
by DocMagi on 2020/11/16 19:45
At a point an app can become crowded and more complicated than needed. This app is one of them and less would be better. It plays music and videos but because of the clutter the main purpose of the app is lacking. Tried using it on the Apple TV but that is silly because whoever designed the app apparently has never used the Apple TV app or just likes pretty pictures. Deleting it off the tv because it simply freezes up and is worthless. The phone app works but again simple is better with less clutter and less bandwidth required to load and run. Actually you seem to be going in the wrong direction especially considering how expensive your service is compared to better streaming services. When Pandora comes with a car radio I imagine your subscriptions with decline a great deal. Shame that your service is worse and your prices increase.
Glitchiest App in App Store
by Zaggott on 2020/07/16 20:06
Constantly having to uninstall/reinstall the app to be able to listen to music. The app always loses my place when I’m listening to Howard Stern. Some episodes are available one minute and then unavailable the next. Frequently deletes my saved episodes. Having to restart my phone to get the app to work at all. Can’t connect via WiFi or LTE sometimes, with the app stating that there’s no internet available (other apps and SpeedTest indicate that I have a fine connection via either WiFi or LTE.) Just a very frustrating app. I’m leaving this review after spending FIFTEEN minutes trying to TRICK the app into working for me. I gave up after uninstalling, reinstalling, and restarting my phone twice. I’m not exaggerating when I say this is the worst app I’ve ever had to use. They’re holding Howard Stern hostage by being the only content provider that has him. And they know it. So they’re not motivated to fix the app. For $140 every 6 months, it’d be amazing if the app worked half as well as Candy Crush.
Bad UI functionality
by apple andy on 2018/01/03 20:48
There’s a slider on the top of the app that is suppose to let you rewind and forward to any point of the broadcast. It works 2% of the time. The slider does not detect me dragging it and then interprets my drag as a swipe taking me to the next or previous channel. How many users navigate channels this way? I feel there should be more emphasis and control of moving where you want to be in the broadcast playing. It’s very hard to get exactly where I want to be on the audio stream. I have to listen to things I already heard before or get taken ahead in the broadcast ruining things I haven’t heard yet. Your “engineers/developers” should make sure the slider is working and is not misinterpreted as a swipe to next channel. Have the slider area have a larger vertical height invisibly or visibly so I can control better. Your UI/UX designers, do some research on how many people swipe left and right to navigate channels. I usually jump into menu for this... rarely is the next or previous channel a task I want to perform or channel I want to listen to. Give more emphasis and UI space for timeline of broadcast control, I want to rewind/fast forward where I want to be on the channel I’m listening to currently. Very frustrating app to use.
High pressure tactics by Sirius Customer Service
by Floridaskater2003 on 2020/01/28 12:04
I have had Sirius XM for over 10 years. I’m a retiree on a fixed income and was up for renewal. I called Sirius yesterday to cancel my subscription. I can no longer afford to keep the service. I was on the phone for 45 minutes before I could get a confirmation number for the cancelation. The first Sirius Representative said she would give me a great deal which was actually much more than I’ve ever paid. I asked why, and she told me, I had received “too many promotional deals.” I said NO and she continued the well known Sirius reps aggressive and despicable sales tactics. I said NO I WANT TO CANCEL MY SUBSCRIPTION 10 times. Finally she told me she had to transfer me to a cancellation agent!? Another agent came on and gave me the same speech. I asked the rep if he was a cancellation agent. He said no, there was no such position, but he would process my request and I finally got my confirmation number for cancellation. These high pressure sales tactics with the elderly, should be illegal. Never again!
Overall, a solid app!
by JesusIsKing87 on 2018/02/16 17:12
The Sirius-XM app works pretty well overall but there needs to be a volume bar added (as another previous review stated) and I would like to also see the name of the song/artist/year scroll from left to right. I often see songs that have either a longer name or the artist/group having a lengthier name, and it’s cut off to where you can’t even see the year it came out. In other words it doesn’t scroll across left to right as it should. Please add these two things along with general enhancements regularly to make this app better. I enjoy listening to mostly music (60s on 6 preferably) on this app and being able to adjust the volume (without using the side manual volume adjustment) on the screen and seeing the year would be a great improvement. Thank you! :-)

Music is a big part of my Life
by OldCrow63 on 2018/06/22 23:18
Years ago I bought a Sanyo rechargeable speaker reviews stated it was made better than the manufacture wanted you can’t find them anymore it has about 3 pounds of lithium battery internal in fact all three of my friends now have the same speaker we use it all the time since I bought my new car in 2012 I’ve had SiriusXM radio all access I listen to it all the time I listen to all the channels I pay attention to the updates through the email on what’s happening through the week or weekend I have SiriusXM in all my vehicles and I’m currently listening to it as I write this review I like all the classic rock ‘n’ roll channels the Tom Petty channel the Beatles country the Western I love the whole package outstanding product will probably have it for the rest of my life Thanks
Terrible
by Keeper007 on 2021/03/02 19:09
Unfortunately, this app (for me at least) is riddle with problems. It actually does ok if you are listening to something live, but becomes very problematic when trying to go back and listen to past programs. It constantly says “Trying to recover audio”. When trying to skip past the commercial, it will skip all the way to the live portion of the channel. Then you have to start the show back over and TRY and skip forward to where you left off. If there was another option than using this app, I would totally be all for it. Unfortunately if you want to listen outside of the car or play past shows, be prepared for a potential headache. This company is way to main stream to have an app that is this terrible. Just my opinion and I hope they finally update the app to something that worked more often than it doesn’t. Especially if you are going back to listen to past show.
Version 5.4.6 crashing when unlocking iPhone
by This is Scott on 2019/06/21 18:38
I noticed very quickly after upgrading to 5.4.6 that very frequently when I'm listening and my iPhone screen locks that when I try to unlock it the SXM app briefly seems to freeze up the iPhone and then crashes and obviously stops therefore playing. Has this issue already been reported and is it being looked into? I'm using an iPhone 7 with iOS 10.3.3 still installed. This app is the only one having this issue. I use some other music streaming programs, podcast apps and I haven't seen this happen when using any of them. And it wasn't occurring in SXM neither before I upgraded it to this version. Other than this issue I enjoy the app when I have a subscription and don't have any other major issues with it at this time.
Bugs Need Fixin
by aek150 on 2020/03/01 21:12
This app is great when it works. Glitches galore. For example, if you save SiriusXM shows in the app’s tab for your Favorites, they may or may not be there next time you open it. So you save them again, until a few days later when they’re gone again from your Favorites. Also, if you pause on a show, and come back later to continue, it won’t play. It won’t even play if you try to restart it from the beginning. Once you pause a show, it is stuck, really frozen, and won’t play again. You can unstick the show in 2 ways: (1) by logging out of the app and logging back in, or (2) by starting to play the next show in the queue for a couple seconds and then going back to the show you paused. Idk why that works. This app needs bug fixes but those fixes never happen. I do enjoy using the app when it works, cause there’s a lot of variety to listen to on long drives.
Enthusiastic SiriusXM recommendation from me @ 66
by garyjyogi on 2018/06/22 00:03
SiriusXM is the best thing to happen to music since FM Di’s in the 70’s-early 80s. Free Form Radio. Now specialty stations for ever taste by era or artist. Blues, Outlaw Country,Jazz( too many stations for me to track), Grateful Dead & Beatles stations & live play by play for my Yankee games regardless of my location. I believe it works for other sports & teams as well & Howard Stern & the tv news feeds across the spectrum from MSNBC through CNN to Fox. & more I keep discovering more content, oh yeah Classic radio, Wow! Makes driving much more fun for me & if I have passengers a great way to be a good host. I could go on but 90% didn’t read this far & I doubt I will even get a thank you from SiriusXM. Even if terrestrial radio had anything worth listening to, SiriusXM does it better & w minimal commercial interruptions. Best to all Garyjyogi
Love the app, but needs a playback speed option for OnDemand
by Poo ln a Cup on 2019/10/12 16:20
I really wish there was a playback speed option for OnDemand. I listen almost exclusively to SXM talk & comedy OnDemand, but I miss a lot of episodes of shows that I love and have listened to for years. The problem with so much good content is finding time to listen to it all. I could listen to more episodes if I could play shows at speeds of 1.25x, 1.5x, etc. Aside from that, this version of the app is great. I’ve been a loyal subscriber for well over 10 years and most of that has been using the app (iOS) or online subscriptions. Developers have really paid attention to what subscribers want and this version has way less crashing than ever before and now with videos and the AppleTV app, it is a total game changer for the platform.
I can not dial back w new update
by JmOWolff on 2018/05/29 16:31
I’ve been a SiriusXM subscriber for over 10 years, and i must say that the new format change is awful. I listen to several channels where I once could scan backwards up to six hours for content. The new format no longer allows for that. My favorites are now mixed in with channels I don't care about. And trying to find out where I am when I find them takes way too much effort. I pay a premium rate for this service primarily to use on my iPhone. It used to be so easy and convenient but the new format is just too hard to use. As i mentioned I’ve been a SiriusXM subscriber for over 10 years, weathered many changes but this change is the worst yet. Please fix these problems or provide an option to go back to the previous version and the more intuitive format. I once loved this app, but I’m not listening anymore, too frustrating. I’m very disappointed.
Change software to work on iPhone Pro 12-13
by mikewmem23 on 2021/10/31 19:31
Based on several searches it seems that once iPhone went to version 12 and 13 users are unable to pull their favorites up within their car applications. I thought it might just be me after upgrading to an iPhone promax however after doing several searches on Google this is a known problem. Prior to updating to iPhone max 13 my iPhone 7 was working perfectly in my truck when connected to my Kenwood receiver. I have read this is occurring in mini automobile radio connections. This is when iPhone is tethered to a radio inside an automobile not using wireless CarPlay. When trying to access SiriusXM we are either getting a cannot connect or unable to connect and if it does connect your previous favorites are not pulling up when selecting the favorites button. So either this is a serious XM app update or Apple needs to make a change on their side.
Nightmare unsubscribe!
by Troubeall2 on 2020/01/04 23:45
DO NOT SIGN UP! I only have the app on my phone, they don’t supply all the information you need to sign in on a computer, it’s proving impossible to cancel my account. After well over an hour on the phone, mostly on hold, then chatting with someone online, then being told I would have to call again to cancel, then calling to find out the call center is closed. This is absolutely ridiculous! Is it really that difficult to make it where people can cancel through the app, come on. Update: Days later, still can’t cancel, they gave me the runaround, took 20 minutes to get my information entered correctly because the guy who barely spoke English and kept changing letters and numbers and entering it wrong. After hours on the phone, now I’m told they can’t find my account. Apparently I’m being charged for an account that I can’t cancel and doesn’t exist. My only option is apparently canceling my debit card, I bet they find my account then!

Difficult to cancel service
by user7245 on 2021/12/06 13:45
SiriusXM makes it unnecessarily difficult to cancel service. The online account management can not be used. They force calling a customer service telephone number with a time wasting automated answering system and long hold time. Then the support personal refuse to cancel the service without more nonsense to try and upsell more subscriptions.
Wish I could give it no stars.
by anthony12275 on 2021/12/05 16:01
With each update app gets worse. App seems so busy the way it’s laid out. App also freezes often. Also the older downloads are not available. You would think at this point they would get it right.
Do not update!
by WRT345@ on 2021/12/05 15:49
I updated the app and now only one device can us the app at a time?!? So if my spouse is listening at work I can’t listen on my app.. unless I pay another $20. Guess I will be canceling my subscription.
Disappointing
by Nkh95 on 2021/12/05 04:58

All the complaints are valid
by Mikey33625 on 2021/12/04 18:07
The app works “sometimes”, freezes or crashes when it doesn’t.
Apple Watch

Please make an Apple Watch version.
Junk!
by 88BTS88 on 2021/12/04 16:00
I constantly have trouble getting logged in. At reached my boiling point and finally decided to cancel services. However, getting to page where you cancel on your online account fails to load. Now I’m stuck waiting 30 minutes to get someone from customer service to respond.
CarPlay is horrible

POOR INTERFACE WITH SONOS SYSTEM
by KCJoCo on 2021/12/03 18:51
I subscribed to the Sirius Platinum streaming so I could listen to it on my Sonos stereo system. I was particularly interested in what they call “Xtra Channels” that show up at different times, especially holiday channels. I recently learned that the “Xtra Channels” aren’t available for streaming on the Sonos app. ?!?!?! Even worse, the support and customer service staff at Sirius aren’t aware of that issue so they’ll tell you seven different things to try… The Sonos support page spells out that the Xtra channels aren’t available - apparently that aspect of the Sirius app doesn’t interface with Sonos..downgraded my subscription to basic streaming but I’m a very disappointed customer.
Last version is broken
by efibendor on 2021/12/03 18:45
Audio just randomly pausing every couple of minutes. Could not get it to play 5 min continuously.
Fire whoever implemented this
by Construct on 2021/12/03 18:40
Like a lot of thoughtless, myopic and poor behaviour from the SiriusXM team, the choice to open the app to the new Christmas station by default is absolutely ridiculous and pushes me closer than ever to cancelling my subscription. Don’t do stupid things like this.
Doesn’t work!
by Kgpossible on 2021/12/03 14:05
The channel I want to listen to doesn’t work. The shows will not download. I called and after an hour they told me to call a different number. It was confirmed I have the right subscription. Everything works in my car fine.
Disaster with Carplay
by Great when it worked on 2021/12/03 02:18
The app rarely works with CarPlay and you end up having to mess with the phone to pick the channel etc. Hard to be handsfree while driving if you want to listen to anything. I love the content but in this day and age CarPlay is a must!
Like it.
by Shanexxl on 2021/12/03 01:42
Enjoy listening to many different stations.
Hot Garbage
by FikaFan on 2021/12/02 20:41
This app is terrible. Crashes all the time. Will keep saying can’t connect or experiencing technical issues. I get Sirius free through my credit card and it’s not even worth the hassle. Canceling asap.
App Simply Will Not Load
by XxX_V1ll4g3r_xXx on 2021/12/02 19:45
Sirius is perfectly fine… when I can actually use the app. But for some reason it simply can’t bring itself to work. Constantly gives me errors before I’m able to play any music. It shouldn’t be a connection issue because any other app on my phone works fine.
App Terrible
by jmc1a1 on 2021/12/02 19:44
App works properly about 50% of the time.. This has been around long enough to expect a lot better..
Apple Watch

You know what would be really sweet? If you guys could make an apple watch version of this app so I don’t have to bring my phone into the gym.
App is trash

The app is horrible. Been horrible for awhile now. The only app worse is the Sirus app on android.
Worst app
by RideBurton05 on 2021/12/02 18:19
This app never loads, always lags, always pauses and then restarts the show. If there an award for worst app in the world they would win it!
Freeze up
by 7Tguns on 2021/12/02 18:13
What’s with the too-frequent app freeze up?
App is trash
by Cletus1079 on 2021/12/02 18:02
I’m not sure sure how many bidens are developing this app but it’s awful. Randomly pauses when listening to stations, disconnects half the time, etc. Are things going to get fixed or are you going to continue to steal money like a commie??? Time to find another product that actually is worth paying for.
Stops at every commercial break
by Zzz~~~~~~ on 2021/12/02 01:06
Yeah, I listen cable news. This app stops at every commercial break. I have to switch to another channel then switch back it will continue. This only start to happen couple weeks ago.
Good music channels but…
by Crazy2bme60 on 2021/12/01 16:10
Over all I do like the variety of music and programming. And I would subscribe if it were not for the sound quality I receive from the app. I get much better sound quality from other apps. But the programming and channels are right on. Just improve the sound output.

Love this app with a few caveats
by VectorZ on 2021/11/30 18:48
Overall I love this app, but I don't understand the skip limitations. I only get 6 an hour, why? Pitbull's station always remains in my favorites even though I remove it over and over. I wish you could down vote songs so they would not play ever again.
Terrible
by Atergo53 on 2021/11/29 14:58
This app does not perform as advertised. I have never been able to skip any songs and calling or leaving messages online has not resolved the problem. They simply keep repeating the same old failed trouble shooting steps. Over the phone (once you are able to actually talk to someone to address the problem) I could barely understand them. Plus, their selection process for music is not easy to negotiate in regards to their selection.

Why take away the 50’s n 60’s ? Not everyone is into the new aged robot sounding music n I’m in my 20’s so no I’m not old I grew up listening to the oldies with my grandparents, there was way more talent back then come on pls give us back our oldies be nice n Merry Christmas!
Doesn’t Work

Apps that don’t recognize the password or email that you JUST USED TO SIGN UP will take more time to correct than what I’m interested in.
Sign In issues
by Smokey@USAF on 2021/11/25 14:57
I have tried to sign in on the app with no luck. This is going on three weeks. Very disappointing!!!
So Many Glitches
by Shan007545507 on 2021/11/25 03:42
Sometimes the app works and other times it seems to freeze on certain shows so then you can’t hit the rewind or fast forward. And then a lot of the times it doesn’t leave your place in a show. Disappointing. I use this app mostly to listen to Howard Stern and I hate how glitchy the app gets.
Technical issues
by impala6tres on 2021/11/25 03:21
I’ve downloaded the app for about a month. I’ve been trying to log on but it tells me there are technical issues. Please help.
This app is beyond trash.
by Tony_AZ on 2021/11/24 06:05
Stops playing every fifteen minutes or so. I am beyond done. Canceling tomorrow.
Love Channel streaming- A Terrible Decision
by Professional on 2021/11/24 02:45
The decision to stop satellite transmission of the Love channel is one of the worst decisions your company has made lately. The main reason my wife and I subscribe to XM is to listen to the Love channel. Without this feature, we plan to cancel our subscription in the near future.
ZERO STARS -Consistently bad for years
by SAH287 on 2021/11/23 12:22
I have never had more problems with any other app than I do this app. You never know if it’s going to work or not. Currently, it won’t connect - keeps telling me I don’t have internet. I have restarted my phone, uninstalled, reinstalled.. etc. nothing works. If it weren’t for Andrew Wilkow I would never pay for this app or service again.
Problem launching app
by 2134iii on 2021/11/22 13:35
The app refuses to launch. It just has the opening logo and won’t go any further. Downloaded new update. Uninstalled/reinstalled. Nothing.
Great radio channels, bad app
by hannibalmo76 on 2021/11/21 22:27
SiriusXM is great. Phish Radio alone is wonderful. But this app is super buggy. It regularly crashes, randomly asks me to log in, and does not cast well to a Chromecast. There is also often a disconnect between what is playing on the speakers and what the app says is playing. Songs restart and end abruptly then pick back up in the middle. It’s a mess.
App does not work!
by stoly on 2021/11/21 20:05

Worst app
by Grod62 on 2021/11/21 16:51
I downloaded this app and have yet been able to sign in to my account. It ALWAYS says that they are having issues, to try back later. FIX THIS
Great Selections, but…
by Radar O'Reiley on 2021/11/21 14:18
What the heck is with ALL THE UPDATES? SiriusXM often hits users with 4 UPDATES PER MONTH and sometimes 2 updates per week. For those of us living in the sticks and NOT having internet service, we have to update over cellular service and by doing so, we get THROTTLED by our service provider. I rarely listen to FM stations anymore and enjoy all the selections & choices available through SiriusXM but just give us updates twice per year instead of twice per week!
Love XM but
by Jimmy Huckstep on 2021/11/21 12:50
The app could have a better UI and be easier to navigate. For example it’d be really convenient if the skip/previous buttons could switch between favorite channels or all channels. With a setting in settings to select either favorites or all. This would be great when driving and my is connected with Bluetooth or CarPlay. Much like how Dash Radio does this already.
Needs a Watch App
by Capsfan16 on 2021/11/21 12:34
App works good, I like the favorites section and assigned NHL Team Channels. It makes it ALOT easier to find games. But can someone please tell me why #SiriusXM App still doesn’t have a watch app?

CarPlay doesn’t work
by Joe9439 on 2021/11/19 18:15
CarPlay does not work at all. Favorites don’t load. Nothing plays. App freezes.
Doesn’t work as often as it does.
by afisherdva on 2021/11/19 03:32
Half the time when you start the app in CarPlay it tells you you don’t have any favorites set up even though you do. Now it starts playing on its own and using up all my data. I’m getting throttled now. The subscription is so not worth the annoyance.
The Blend
by Mad gmama on 2021/11/18 20:07
I think the new Blend is too bland and generic. I really liked the mix it used to have. I can’t find the right combination of music now.
Please
by thawestcoastg on 2021/11/18 00:33
Please add it compatible with Apple Watch app
Amazingly bad
by thomasruns on 2021/11/17 23:56
It takes true vision and commitment to make an app this bad and consistently keep it this bad for years.
No options for playback speed
by Aanjilah on 2021/11/17 18:35
I can't believe in 2021 that I can't play their archived talk shows at 1.5 speed. Every other player has this option. The interface is not easy to navigate.
Are You Still Listening to Music on the app you Opened to Listen to Music?!
by Rating and dating on 2021/11/16 20:41
No clue why, but when I open my music app (to listen to music) it has to stop playing music every 10-15 minutes, to ask me if I still want to listen to music? Is there a point to this feature, aside from killing the vibe every 15 mins? I keep my phone on me and open in order to use the app, which is dumb. XM radio is nice bc you can put it on and not have to play DJ. EXCEPT ON THIS APP - PLEASE DISABLE “ARE YOU STILL LISTENING” PROMPT. Easier solution I guess is to just close the app and use Spotify Premium.
Apple Watch app
by mboytwo on 2021/11/16 16:09
Can you please make an Apple Watch app so I can see what’s playing so I don’t have to open the app?
Why? Please Fix It!
by newbonmot on 2021/11/16 14:14
Favorite-ed shows are being mysteriously removed from my fave list. When I try to favorite again, it won’t stick. Pressed star to add, “added to favorites” came up, star went solid, then went blank again. This bug is a PEST.
App does not work with HomePod streaming anymore
by dalexhouston on 2021/11/16 13:11
Until HomePod upgraded to 15.1.1 you could connect via the Bluetooth on an iPhone connection and listen on a HomePod. Now, the app and HomePod no longer talk to each other. Other apps work to stream to HomePod so it’s obviously an issue with how this app connects. Very disappointing.

My subscription includes college sports channels 954 thru 994 but they are nowhere to be found on the app. Please add those channels to the app.
App fails most of the time
by Decypher44 on 2021/11/13 05:04
It can’t seem to load/play podcasts and rarely plays stations. I’m not sure what their problem is, but they need to correct it. For how much we all pay for satellite radio, it’s the least they could do!
App times out when trying to sign in
by stczztop on 2021/11/12 23:40
Haven’t been able to login in to the app for over a month. I enter my login and then the SiriusXM logo appears and flashes and flashes, but nothing happens. Really disappointing. Updates haven’t fixed anything.
The worst
by Monkimama on 2021/11/12 02:09
This is by far THE WORST app for streaming. I pay tons of money to NOT have to deal with shorty connections or shows not being posted in a timely manner. Awful! Fix it!
Least consistent app I still use
by Leaferguy on 2021/11/12 00:14
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.
Bad update no skip adverts
by Kuadratic on 2021/11/11 13:58
The latest version of the app no longer allows you to skip through advertisement so now you not only have to pay for this app, at least to get the meaning for channels, but you also have to listen to advertising. Horrible
CarPlay is terrible
by kidbrax on 2021/11/11 13:24
This is strictly for CarPlay. It just doesn’t even work half the time. The list of recently played is wrong most of the time. The Channels section just goes blank out of nowhere. There is no way to just list all the channels and go through them. There’s no way to just enter a channel number to go to it.
Having trouble adding any channels to favorite
by ismjihn on 2021/11/11 03:39
This is bizarre. I’m not able to add any channels to my favorite at all since I have to use my iPhone for radio show lately. I googled the instruction and tabbed all the stars I could for any channels or shows. It just wouldn’t show it under favorite. Nor I am able to modify anything in the favorite tab. They really need to take a deep look at this bug.

Cannot wait until I can cancel the service. Constant issues with the app. Reinstalled today after repeated error messages and now stuck on blue screen with no way to log in. With so many choices out there, SiriusXM should make an effort to release a working app.

Terrible App!
by vuvugk on 2021/11/10 21:14
This app is horrible I have been fighting for it to work for the past year. For what I pay to have the availability to the app it irritates me that I can’t use it. Initially it updated and started telling me all my login info was incorrect which just the day before I had been listening to the app without issues. Now it just sits on a blue screen with faces of Sirius Xm people. I have called many times to resolve the login issue which never got resolved because it is a problem in the Sirius xm Client system no one can fix now I am so mad I don’t think I should waste my time to get the app to work. I hate hate hate this. I am not sure I will be renewing my subscription.

Lots of issues like the app won’t load even with a strong 4G signal… app just hangs there… once Jim and Sam leaves … I’ll be calling the company to have them erase my screen name and password…. SiriusXM CarPlay is an F’N joke
Frequently doesn’t work
by tygkol on 2021/11/10 19:54
The worst app is be ever used and for such an expensive subscription. Frequently app has issues and I’m unable to use. Frequently I lose all my favorites which is a huge pain. I’ve been so frustrated with this app that I’ve even canceled my subscription multiple times over it because of the stress it caused. Entertainment subscription should not involve stress, imo. Use at your own risk!

Buggy and crashes often
by Fireonice02 on 2021/11/10 16:20
I love the app when it works but it picks and chooses when it wants to work correctly. It will randomly delete my favorite channels, crash in the middle of listening and on demand content gets hung up and frozen often. It seems to only be issue with the app the on demand content in my truck works every time.
Super frustrating

SAD!
by (Walter55) on 2021/11/09 18:26
I was really luvin my SiriusXM radio, untill they took away my most fav channel, 40’s music on my music only subscription. Yeah it’s on PC streaming, but I needed it on my radio, in the car, I’m on SSI, limited income, and am not going to upgrade any subscription, it’s kinda crappy, you should be grandfathered in and not lose that channel. So I’m not considering keeping SiriusXM because you keep taking my favs away, if you want to take away channels, take the rap ones away, what the heck does a senior citizen need with rap stations, take those from me and return my 40’s! Thank you.

CarPlay app is unusable
by mrtux543 on 2021/11/09 04:06
I mostly use this app to listen in my car, which does not have XM but does have CarPlay support. The app is completely unstable on CarPlay and has been for months. Stations do not load half the time, and the menus are cumbersome to use especially while driving.

by CecilPeoplesForPrez on 2021/11/08 21:32
Half of the time this app doesn’t work. All of the shows in my favorites will disappear and it can last days in some cases before it starts working again. The interface is terrible, and the search function almost never works. “No search results found for Howard Stern” What a joke.
Love the app, wish there was an app for the Apple Watch
by Almt 79 on 2021/11/08 17:12
I love listening to SiriusXM but I would like to see an app for the Apple Watch. When I’ve searched online for when it would be available I show they were working on it for the Apple Watch Series 3 but here we are on Series 7 with no SiriusXM app for the Watch! Please get an app for the Apple Watch!
CarPlay functionality is broken
by erin476 on 2021/11/08 14:49
CarPlay functionality with this app is horrible. Favorites frequently don’t work. The app rejoins old streams with no indication that it is not live, without any ability to jump to live. Have to switch to another stream and back to fix. Constant frustrations with broken UI.

by someguyinthe315 on 2021/11/06 11:54
Constantly loses connection to Bluetooth even though every other app has no issues ever. And why does it stop randomly no matter what channel you listen to? I shouldn't have to keep closing and reopening the app then finding where I left off whenever I want to listen to something
Unwanted rap noise
by MaineManMike on 2021/11/06 11:10
For some reason now every time I open the app it opens a rap Pandora station. I rarely use the serious app for Music and I definitely don’t listen to rap. Every time I connect I have to stop the rap junk, and try to figure out what the last thing I was listening to so I can search for it. As far as I can tell there’s no way to make the app stop doing this. I’m getting ready to delete and cancel my subscription and just listen to Howard stern on YouTube. The show was better years ago anyway.
Horrible
by J_a_VI_Er on 2021/11/06 02:28
DO NOT BUY THIS APP. IT IS A HUGE ANNOYING PROCESS TO CANCEL, VERY UNNECESSARY AND THEY SHOULD MAKE IT EASIER TO CANCEL. I bought the subscription by accident and when I went to cancel I had to chat with a bot, purely annoying and they waste your time in the process, If you know you have no intentions on fully using the app, DO NOT BUY!!!

The app is horrendous with CarPlay Every time i use it I get “Menultem does not exist” when changing stations What’s the point of an app that can be used in a secondary vehicle and support CarPlay if you still need to use the app on the phone to control it because it will be controlled through CarPlay

Song titles still do no update on screen. This has been the case for awhile now. Instead of pushing out useless updates, do a “bug fix” since there are numerous complaints on the same issue. I’m paying for a premium service that is full of bugs and doesn’t work.
I Love Channel 90 so I bought Premium Pkg
by RealTennesseeMcCoy on 2020/04/05 16:13
I am huge racing fan and especially L❤️VE NASCAR and LeMann racing fan. I began listening to XM Radio my 2005 BMW X-5 and I’ve had it ever since. Now, SirusXm Radio, Initially, I only listened to channel 90 Nascar Radio. Over years I have listened to ESPN OR Fox SportS during college football season. We have it in all 4 cars and two of the tractors. I had not deeply explored other channels until I begin using the app on my mobile device when I’m mowing in Spring amd Summer 12-16 hours a week. They even have workout music by the decade and most recently added Indy Channel, with hosts, Jack Arute and AJ Allmendinger ! Call and they will negotiate a price with you. Only one warning..if you give a credit card number they will auto renew every year. I did not like that and it took a month for them to understand I would either be billed at home the old fashioned way- or cancel. Auto renew takes away a locked in price. They renew at market price.. which was always double the rate I got when I called or this last period I did online via chat session.
Awful, awful app
by JohnnyW34 on 2020/10/28 16:46
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.
Serve a 2nd vehicle for free, or use as a fix for an obstructed antenna
by RV Sciencephile on 2018/06/23 13:55
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!
Too many bugs
by DJ Joey G on 2019/09/03 21:23
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.....
Great App
by TaxisLatka on 2019/02/08 22:43
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+
Something w/accessibility for all ages.

I LOVE Apple Play, don’t get me wrong!! And unfortunately in some newer cars you’ll have to pay for the feature of have Apple Play. I can only assume it’s because the Xirius option is as basic as it can get. Normally, that’s nothing to be bothered about (I’ll just pay for the dealership to ‘install Apple Play’). The eye opener for me was when I bought my now favorite modern car; A 2019 Hyundai Kona. It came with both higher ends of both media options. At first I stuck to what I knew, Apple Play. But the I started leaving Apple Play off, and realizing how much I was enjoying Xirius and the huge variety they offered. And, the price for a subscription was insanely good for all it has (you can customize what you want as well). My favorite is being able the listen to whatever I was, in the car, and picking it up again via my phone, or tablet. Thanks for making options for consumers!!!
No landscape mode; update horrible for RadioClassics
by PetiteFrog on 2018/06/07 23:02
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.
Favorites won’t save & keep getting deleted
by Food Jock on 2020/06/18 20:38
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.
CarPlay buggy, no chrome cast support but good sound quality
by Cypherstream on 2018/10/25 02:17
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.
Least consistent app I still use
by Leaferguy on 2021/11/12 00:14
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.
God help you if . . . . . . Update
by Queenbeedlg on 2018/06/01 14:24
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.
New features but lacking polish
by drew_petricc on 2018/11/08 20:01
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.
The more I spend time with this..
by Phantom2089 on 2018/05/14 23:02
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!!!
Sirisously Addicted
by Cindy.Curl.Beye.Iowa on 2018/09/05 14:10
I can no longer listen to regular FM radio. I love my Sirius. Wish you would have done more of a tribute to David Cassidy. A channel for a short time in his honor would be amazing. At the same time, 70’s On 7 should be playing more of David’s stuff from his solo albums, as well as Partridge Family recordings; definitely not enough of the latter, and absolutely none of the forbearing. David broke many records for various things in his career, which widely go unrecognized. I was really disappointed to see no periodicals in his memory, especially a Rolling Stones mag dedication. Such a talented artist should be remembered. I also enjoy 60’s On 6 to get my Mad Men fix; love your regular morning DJ - he’s been everywhere! Cowboy Bob & the 40’s Channel are greatly appreciated when I’m missing my grandparents. I also use the Toddler Channel a lot for my grandchildren. And when I’m feeling a little blue, it’s wonderful that I can listen Christmas music any time of the year to cheer me up! Any chance we could have a Dean Martin channel for a short while? Frank’s channel don’t play him enough. What a legend! And believe it or not, Lawrence Welk still has a huge fan base that tunes in to Public TV every Saturday night to watch his reruns... The Welk Channel, at least during the holidays ? Love you guys. Never go away! Sincerely, Faithful Subscriber Cindy Beye Marshall County, Iowa
TRASH CUSTOMER SERVICE
by JUSSLikeCandy on 2020/08/31 13:08
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
by JaoOso on 2021/09/27 01:37
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.
Mobile app doesn’t update songs on Sirius VM channels
by ILoveFirstWave33 on 2021/09/07 19:54
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
Something has changed!
by B& aid on 2020/01/31 09:23
I have been an XM Radio listener for years and my favorite channel is Radio Classics. I have used the app for years to catch up on content I might have missed. The app used to work well for listening to shows that had already aired. However, after they added Pandora features to the XM app, the app became unreliable. Before, switching from segment to segment worked well and the skip forward feature worked well. Now however, as you near the end of one segment, you can no longer reliably click on a different story segment and have the app react.... the sound just stops and you get a spinning wheel. Nothing happens. You can close the app and restart it sometimes to get it to work but here lately, even that is not working. I even deleted the app and re-installed but no joy. This has become exceedingly frustrating and totally ruins one of the main benefits of subscribing to the digital content service. I wish companies would more thoroughly test their updates before “breaking” perfectly good applications.
This App is Lame
by MSTampaFL on 2020/05/22 01:28
No matter how many updates they release, this app is still a PIECE OF JUNK. And I'm tired of being polite about it. First, the saved on-demand favorites randomly disappear causing me to have to re-save them. Sometimes a reboot will bring them back, sometimes not. This bug has been in the last 3 or 4 versions. Also, the app won't "let go" of what I was listening to before to go to live or another choice. Example, listening to an on-demand news episode and then wanting to go to the live channel, the wheel just spins and spins and the eventually goes back to the main menu with the prior show still stuck in the player. Shutting down the app and restarting doesn't fix it. And there is no longer a go "Live" button in the on-demand GUI. The only workaround I've found is that you have to change to another channel and then go back to the channel you want in order for the player to clear and "let go" of what you were previously listening to. Is there some excuse SiriusXM can't hire competent developers to fix this app? Especially since we pay extra to use it???
Volume Bar?
by Lwmavrik on 2017/12/21 21:07
Nice app for the most part, but some silly omissions...Volume Bar for iPad?..., iPhone has it...albeit flawed...it needs to stay on the screen permanently and be further down so you don’t run into the other bar above it that handles rew/ff.... I waited for years for a last channel "jump to" button so you can quickly toggle between two channels?!? Recent‘s from the latest update covers that... it’s about time! I have felt for years like the people who develop this app never use it, because if you’ve ever used a television remote control in your life an A/B button and the volume button is what you use the most and if you haven’t noticed, the volume buttons on phones are often not so easy, particularly if you have a case on it! Thus the volume needs to stay on the LCD screen at all times not appear and disappear ...once you have touched the button on the side, why would you then need to then slide over to the one that appears on the screen.. it’s moronic!! Someone needs to make more of an effort and this can be 5 stars!
Downloads DO NOT WORK
by edbeaton on 2018/06/01 23:14
What’s the point of having a download feature if I still need a connection?? I’ve downloaded on-demand episodes, and they played back fine, until I lost my cell/WiFi signal (my commute includes areas w slow to no connection for stretches). So to me this means that the app is not accessing whatever file is downloaded locally to the phone, and I’m using data to access something I supposedly downloaded to use later. Downloads in previous versions were buggy (also looked for data connection), but I eventually was able to get to episodes already downloaded. Please fix this!!! Update: so the top complaint (landscape on iPad) is fixed, but downloads still don’t work. Yes the downloads complete (didn’t have that issue previously), but you CAN’T ACCESS the “downloaded” files. I get the spinning icon over the play button when selected from the downloads folder (buried in the settings area as ppl have complained about before) and essentially freeze the app. Who do I have to call to get reimbursed for all the data I’m burning through since I can’t download over WiFi to then listen later???
Can’t sign in
by teaboneski on 2020/04/02 01:03
I’ve been using this app for years and there are always issues. The current one (and it’s kind of a big one) is that I can’t get passed the login screen. I’ve been trying to log in since March 11th, when I was logged out randomly (which happens occasionally with most subscription apps, so no big deal). Today is April 1, and I still haven’t been able to log in. I know my credentials, so that’s not the problem. I can still log into my account on the web, it’s just the mobile app I can’t sign into. I type in my credentials and the SiriusXM logo pops up and loads indefinitely. I’ve reached out to support (phone and email) but it’s impossible getting in touch right now, which is understandable in the current circumstances. I get it, I just don’t want to be paying for something I can’t use. You also can’t cancel your account without speaking to a representative. As stated above, that’s nearly impossible right now. And there’s no online option to cancel. Not sure what to do at this point.
Sometimes it works
by Thome258 on 2019/11/06 13:06
This app has to be the worst app for issues. Sometimes it works fine then they update it and it never fails that it causes issues. If you email customer service you get the same response every time. They tell you to delete the app and reinstall it. I don’t want to have to do that at least once a month because then I lose all the shows I’ve downloaded . I don’t have unlimited data so I like that I can download the shows I’ve missed onto the app to listen to in the car. I just wish it was more consistent and didn’t have an issue every time they put out an update. Right now the issue is that if I stop listening to a show and go back to it later it will restart from the beginning and not where I left off. Then I have to try to figure out where I was. I wish they’d add a forward button that only went like 20 seconds instead of having to either forward past a whole segment or slide to another part of the show but not knowing where you’ll end up stopping.
Free at Last!
by Fadiddle on 2019/07/18 00:49
With all the other great providers of streaming music that are free out there, this was the best thing they could have done. We are already paying for the service, and requiring additional payment like it was before for the streaming service, you turned many people away. Not just from streaming but from your service altogether. That would be like my internet service saying I had to pay for service on each device that was connected to the same service, I was already paying for. Glad y’all were able to buy pandora and work it out for us(the paying customers) to enjoy your service the way it should be; “Anyway we want to enjoy it, Anywhere we want to enjoy it.” Keep doing business like this, and you’ll not only have me as a loyal customer, but many, many more!
Music w/out interrupting commercial.
by NanaLucyB on 2019/06/24 19:12
I wish to thank series for the music that I enjoy which is sometimes find music to relax me and I enjoy the bridge crossover I enjoy their all-time comedy show which is like with them the talk show I forgot what they called it has that all time TV shows as what I like and the most important no commercials that’s what I enjoy thank you very much. I I enjoy it very much that I pass on the words to others to picture at XM radio in fact I talk to my daughter into trying it for a while so it’s up to her and her husband to find out if they like it without commercials they love the kids songs cause I got five now so we’ll see how that goes because they they have different taste of music compared to me I love the all timers they like the updated type music all right thank you very much.
Not crazy about the update
by missjubilada on 2018/05/16 17:18
I use this app all the time and I’m really frustrated by some of the changes in the update. It’s fine for listening to music but I also love the Radio Classics channel and the update is horrible for that. You used to be able to see the past few hours of individual shows, as well as the upcoming few hours of individual shows. Now all it shows is the past 45 minutes or so and the title of the hours long “Radio Classics” or “ When Radio Was” but not the individual programs being broadcast. And shows what commercials are played during that 45 minutes. Who would care about that?! It also used to let you choose individual programs as favorites to star ( The Jack Benny Program or Suspense, for example). Now the only options appear to be the 2 Radio Classics or When Radio Was shows ( which consist of several hours of individual programs that seem to be impossible to see within the app now). Why would an update provide fewer features than the old version ? Very frustrating. Please fix.
Horribly Unstable
by SoFar87 on 2018/04/18 11:16
This app is a disaster. Continually has issues saying it cannot determine my location so it won’t load. Which makes no sense as my WiFi and cellular networks are working perfectly. Live in a major city and never have other app issues when this happens. Definitely happens more after a recent update which always seems to make things worse. The volume bar is hidden and the scrolling is terrible because the bar is too small and not sensitive at all. I clearly have no clue how their QA development team tests the app in real world scenarios and things is production ready. In fairness there are some great features (when the app works) and the UI is pretty decent. But some of the basic functionality for volume, scrolling within an stream like Howard Stern, and overall application stability are a disaster. Sirius has no competition. They clearly Need to just focus on the basics of building a rock solid app and stop with all the gimmick junk. Subscriber since their beginning but very disappointed they continue to ruin this app. And for the record, these issues happen on a brand new iPhone X.
Great once you you can get what they promise.
by papasprep on 2018/09/01 00:15
I have loved having SiriusXM. I received it as a gift from my daughter so I could listen to baseball. With it, I can hear our beloved Cleveland Indians from my home in New England. (We lived in northeast Ohio for 17 years.). Problem was it took days and several calls to get what my daughter paid for. The station I needed didn’t come in on my radio and it seemed to be quite a problem to get it to work. Worse yet, my husband on a totally different account tried to add the Indians station, and while SiriusXM was quick to charge him for the extra station, they failed to let him know that for some reason his brand new car had the wrong type of radio to get the higher stations. (He already has a basic XM radio package, so still have no clue what the issue was.) The reps that help are very nice, but it should be as easy to get the stations you are looking for, as it is for the XM folk to take your money.
Garbage App
by THE-MACHINE on 2021/07/16 17:34
This app is complete garbage, it will constantly stop playing rendering it completely useless. I have been a customer for over 15 years and can honestly say, the customer service has become dismal. I called to get technical support, it was answered by someone who spoke English poorly and was hard to understand. I was then transferred to their “Advanced Technical Support” and again was answered by another person who didn’t speak clear English l. But, as a bonus, this person was obviously reading from a script and began asking questions the had nothing to do with solving the problem. I had made it clear that I was calling from the very phone the app was on, this individual asked me several times to attempt to access a channel on the app. I explained about 5 times that I can not play the application and talk on the phone simultaneously. After the 5th time of exposing this, I eventually said this was a waste of time and hung up. With out resolving my issue, I’m now here, extremely frustrated. If you’re expecting good service, think again.
Bogus product
by jimmm37522579000 on 2020/03/24 14:56
This is review for Sirius xm in general. What a pain of a product. I’ve been a subscriber for years. It’s always been a hassle. I always had to call to get he same deal, over and over again. I’d have to spend half an hour on the phone every 5 months to get my radio for $25 even then they would always automatically renew me even when I’d specifically ask them not to, and of course the automatic renewal would be at triple the price. So every time I have to call and spend all that time on the phone to get refunded and put back on the same deal I’ve always had. I finally had enough of wasting my time on all that so I cancelled all together. After receiving 100 phone calls from them and me expressing my issues, they told me they would give me a full year, continuing at the price I always paid. They confirmed I would still have all my channels. Well my radio renewed and it’s missing both Howard stern channels; the whole reason I subscribed. So there’s another 45 minutes on the phone to cancel and get my refund. Sirius has a great product but why can’t I just continue paying the same amount to get my channels? I don’t understand how such a big company can be so difficult. I just want to pay for the product and not have all his hassle. The process of trying to renew feels like I’m buying a car every time. I’d love to continue giving Sirius my money, hopefully one day they decide to start running their business with some class and customer support.
Listening to ‘the radio’ is still a great way to go! :D
by James Tormé on 2019/04/18 00:55
Even in this age of overstimulation and emphasis on the visual, listening to a good old radio show is still a totally fulfilling experience and one that is uniquely “my time”. Do you listen. You reflect. And you can do something else all the while (like drive, guard a present pod, or fix somebody’s rear left suspension housing) without feeling held hostage at all. A lot of people who don’t have the time to read a lot get the majority of their outside perspectives on life from listening to the radio on that daily commute, when they are, for a time, a ‘captive audience’ for life‘s commentators. This can be a good thing or a bad thing depending on your perspective. But at least it allows them to think about topical stuff for a minute… And in that time their mind escapes some of that add you to build up by the daily grind.
Very slow to start playing
by Straight Answers on 2021/02/18 19:39
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.
The redesign has made it so much worse
by Ben B 84 on 2018/06/22 03:40
I love SiriusXM. I’m a streaming-only customer... I live in NYC and never drive. So this app and the web app are the only ways I listen to SiriusXM. The content is what keeps me coming back. However, this application post-redesign a few months ago is one of the worst I’ve ever seen. Something basic: entering the app, you’re sometimes prompted by one of those “rate this on iTunes” dialogs. Ok, fine. Everyone needs to keep their rating up, I get it. However, the modal for that interaction doesn’t have an overlay that shows that other actions in the application are disabled. It looks like the other functions of the player... play/pause, etc. are usable. So I spend 20 seconds thinking the app is broken, until I realize there’s a modal for review in the foreground. Then I start streaming. That works fine, until I encounter connectivity issues, which is most of the commute in NYC. The “go live” button isn’t a button.. it’s just text, and has no indication that it’s been pressed (which is mobile app dev 101). It feels like the press event hasn’t happened. I’m usually sure that it didn’t, and that the app is broken. Most of the time I terminate the entire app and reload it to get a working stream. Honestly, you should fire anyone involved with the redesign of this application. They don’t have enough experience to develop a coherent mobile application. Whoever implemented the previous version seemed to know what they were doing.

Just an update - I'm not adding any new updates - who knows If it improves things or not. Sirius are you responding to these postings? I have an iPhone 6, using iOS 10.3, no intentions to upgrade my iOS for numerous reasons. No content has been downloaded, so I don't understand - 3.x Gb storage. That much ? With no downloaded content? Does the basic app use that much storage? Btw - howard off again - another week ? Week of 3-18. Must be nice ! As far as the reviewer wrote about updating iOS one iPhone I have the latest and greatest and now my serious app is crashing. Not because I'm very low on memory, but it's worked before those conditions. I do agree that it's annoying for example that if I see that Riley Morgan is scheduled on Howard 101 the something entirely different. These apps are designed by developers that should be able to solve these problems and resolve the issues. I've been looking for employment for a long time and I am a graphic designer was some interactive design skills. So it baffles me that you have developers who haven't gotten it right and got these issues resolved. So Sirius XM hiring manager, hire me! Visual, marketing and technical problem solving is what I do best. With a little insight and team effort, i'll get all these issues solved.
Ok but crowded
by DocMagi on 2020/11/16 19:45
At a point an app can become crowded and more complicated than needed. This app is one of them and less would be better. It plays music and videos but because of the clutter the main purpose of the app is lacking. Tried using it on the Apple TV but that is silly because whoever designed the app apparently has never used the Apple TV app or just likes pretty pictures. Deleting it off the tv because it simply freezes up and is worthless. The phone app works but again simple is better with less clutter and less bandwidth required to load and run. Actually you seem to be going in the wrong direction especially considering how expensive your service is compared to better streaming services. When Pandora comes with a car radio I imagine your subscriptions with decline a great deal. Shame that your service is worse and your prices increase.
Glitchiest App in App Store
by Zaggott on 2020/07/16 20:06
Constantly having to uninstall/reinstall the app to be able to listen to music. The app always loses my place when I’m listening to Howard Stern. Some episodes are available one minute and then unavailable the next. Frequently deletes my saved episodes. Having to restart my phone to get the app to work at all. Can’t connect via WiFi or LTE sometimes, with the app stating that there’s no internet available (other apps and SpeedTest indicate that I have a fine connection via either WiFi or LTE.) Just a very frustrating app. I’m leaving this review after spending FIFTEEN minutes trying to TRICK the app into working for me. I gave up after uninstalling, reinstalling, and restarting my phone twice. I’m not exaggerating when I say this is the worst app I’ve ever had to use. They’re holding Howard Stern hostage by being the only content provider that has him. And they know it. So they’re not motivated to fix the app. For $140 every 6 months, it’d be amazing if the app worked half as well as Candy Crush.
Bad UI functionality
by apple andy on 2018/01/03 20:48
There’s a slider on the top of the app that is suppose to let you rewind and forward to any point of the broadcast. It works 2% of the time. The slider does not detect me dragging it and then interprets my drag as a swipe taking me to the next or previous channel. How many users navigate channels this way? I feel there should be more emphasis and control of moving where you want to be in the broadcast playing. It’s very hard to get exactly where I want to be on the audio stream. I have to listen to things I already heard before or get taken ahead in the broadcast ruining things I haven’t heard yet. Your “engineers/developers” should make sure the slider is working and is not misinterpreted as a swipe to next channel. Have the slider area have a larger vertical height invisibly or visibly so I can control better. Your UI/UX designers, do some research on how many people swipe left and right to navigate channels. I usually jump into menu for this... rarely is the next or previous channel a task I want to perform or channel I want to listen to. Give more emphasis and UI space for timeline of broadcast control, I want to rewind/fast forward where I want to be on the channel I’m listening to currently. Very frustrating app to use.
High pressure tactics by Sirius Customer Service
by Floridaskater2003 on 2020/01/28 12:04
I have had Sirius XM for over 10 years. I’m a retiree on a fixed income and was up for renewal. I called Sirius yesterday to cancel my subscription. I can no longer afford to keep the service. I was on the phone for 45 minutes before I could get a confirmation number for the cancelation. The first Sirius Representative said she would give me a great deal which was actually much more than I’ve ever paid. I asked why, and she told me, I had received “too many promotional deals.” I said NO and she continued the well known Sirius reps aggressive and despicable sales tactics. I said NO I WANT TO CANCEL MY SUBSCRIPTION 10 times. Finally she told me she had to transfer me to a cancellation agent!? Another agent came on and gave me the same speech. I asked the rep if he was a cancellation agent. He said no, there was no such position, but he would process my request and I finally got my confirmation number for cancellation. These high pressure sales tactics with the elderly, should be illegal. Never again!
Overall, a solid app!
by JesusIsKing87 on 2018/02/16 17:12
The Sirius-XM app works pretty well overall but there needs to be a volume bar added (as another previous review stated) and I would like to also see the name of the song/artist/year scroll from left to right. I often see songs that have either a longer name or the artist/group having a lengthier name, and it’s cut off to where you can’t even see the year it came out. In other words it doesn’t scroll across left to right as it should. Please add these two things along with general enhancements regularly to make this app better. I enjoy listening to mostly music (60s on 6 preferably) on this app and being able to adjust the volume (without using the side manual volume adjustment) on the screen and seeing the year would be a great improvement. Thank you! :-)

Music is a big part of my Life

Terrible
by Keeper007 on 2021/03/02 19:09
Unfortunately, this app (for me at least) is riddle with problems. It actually does ok if you are listening to something live, but becomes very problematic when trying to go back and listen to past programs. It constantly says “Trying to recover audio”. When trying to skip past the commercial, it will skip all the way to the live portion of the channel. Then you have to start the show back over and TRY and skip forward to where you left off. If there was another option than using this app, I would totally be all for it. Unfortunately if you want to listen outside of the car or play past shows, be prepared for a potential headache. This company is way to main stream to have an app that is this terrible. Just my opinion and I hope they finally update the app to something that worked more often than it doesn’t. Especially if you are going back to listen to past show.
Version 5.4.6 crashing when unlocking iPhone
by This is Scott on 2019/06/21 18:38
I noticed very quickly after upgrading to 5.4.6 that very frequently when I'm listening and my iPhone screen locks that when I try to unlock it the SXM app briefly seems to freeze up the iPhone and then crashes and obviously stops therefore playing. Has this issue already been reported and is it being looked into? I'm using an iPhone 7 with iOS 10.3.3 still installed. This app is the only one having this issue. I use some other music streaming programs, podcast apps and I haven't seen this happen when using any of them. And it wasn't occurring in SXM neither before I upgraded it to this version. Other than this issue I enjoy the app when I have a subscription and don't have any other major issues with it at this time.
Bugs Need Fixin
by aek150 on 2020/03/01 21:12
This app is great when it works. Glitches galore. For example, if you save SiriusXM shows in the app’s tab for your Favorites, they may or may not be there next time you open it. So you save them again, until a few days later when they’re gone again from your Favorites. Also, if you pause on a show, and come back later to continue, it won’t play. It won’t even play if you try to restart it from the beginning. Once you pause a show, it is stuck, really frozen, and won’t play again. You can unstick the show in 2 ways: (1) by logging out of the app and logging back in, or (2) by starting to play the next show in the queue for a couple seconds and then going back to the show you paused. Idk why that works. This app needs bug fixes but those fixes never happen. I do enjoy using the app when it works, cause there’s a lot of variety to listen to on long drives.
Enthusiastic SiriusXM recommendation from me @ 66
by garyjyogi on 2018/06/22 00:03
SiriusXM is the best thing to happen to music since FM Di’s in the 70’s-early 80s. Free Form Radio. Now specialty stations for ever taste by era or artist. Blues, Outlaw Country,Jazz( too many stations for me to track), Grateful Dead & Beatles stations & live play by play for my Yankee games regardless of my location. I believe it works for other sports & teams as well & Howard Stern & the tv news feeds across the spectrum from MSNBC through CNN to Fox. & more I keep discovering more content, oh yeah Classic radio, Wow! Makes driving much more fun for me & if I have passengers a great way to be a good host. I could go on but 90% didn’t read this far & I doubt I will even get a thank you from SiriusXM. Even if terrestrial radio had anything worth listening to, SiriusXM does it better & w minimal commercial interruptions. Best to all Garyjyogi
Love the app, but needs a playback speed option for OnDemand
by Poo ln a Cup on 2019/10/12 16:20
I really wish there was a playback speed option for OnDemand. I listen almost exclusively to SXM talk & comedy OnDemand, but I miss a lot of episodes of shows that I love and have listened to for years. The problem with so much good content is finding time to listen to it all. I could listen to more episodes if I could play shows at speeds of 1.25x, 1.5x, etc. Aside from that, this version of the app is great. I’ve been a loyal subscriber for well over 10 years and most of that has been using the app (iOS) or online subscriptions. Developers have really paid attention to what subscribers want and this version has way less crashing than ever before and now with videos and the AppleTV app, it is a total game changer for the platform.
I can not dial back w new update
by JmOWolff on 2018/05/29 16:31
I’ve been a SiriusXM subscriber for over 10 years, and i must say that the new format change is awful. I listen to several channels where I once could scan backwards up to six hours for content. The new format no longer allows for that. My favorites are now mixed in with channels I don't care about. And trying to find out where I am when I find them takes way too much effort. I pay a premium rate for this service primarily to use on my iPhone. It used to be so easy and convenient but the new format is just too hard to use. As i mentioned I’ve been a SiriusXM subscriber for over 10 years, weathered many changes but this change is the worst yet. Please fix these problems or provide an option to go back to the previous version and the more intuitive format. I once loved this app, but I’m not listening anymore, too frustrating. I’m very disappointed.
Change software to work on iPhone Pro 12-13
by mikewmem23 on 2021/10/31 19:31
Based on several searches it seems that once iPhone went to version 12 and 13 users are unable to pull their favorites up within their car applications. I thought it might just be me after upgrading to an iPhone promax however after doing several searches on Google this is a known problem. Prior to updating to iPhone max 13 my iPhone 7 was working perfectly in my truck when connected to my Kenwood receiver. I have read this is occurring in mini automobile radio connections. This is when iPhone is tethered to a radio inside an automobile not using wireless CarPlay. When trying to access SiriusXM we are either getting a cannot connect or unable to connect and if it does connect your previous favorites are not pulling up when selecting the favorites button. So either this is a serious XM app update or Apple needs to make a change on their side.
Nightmare unsubscribe!
by Troubeall2 on 2020/01/04 23:45
DO NOT SIGN UP! I only have the app on my phone, they don’t supply all the information you need to sign in on a computer, it’s proving impossible to cancel my account. After well over an hour on the phone, mostly on hold, then chatting with someone online, then being told I would have to call again to cancel, then calling to find out the call center is closed. This is absolutely ridiculous! Is it really that difficult to make it where people can cancel through the app, come on. Update: Days later, still can’t cancel, they gave me the runaround, took 20 minutes to get my information entered correctly because the guy who barely spoke English and kept changing letters and numbers and entering it wrong. After hours on the phone, now I’m told they can’t find my account. Apparently I’m being charged for an account that I can’t cancel and doesn’t exist. My only option is apparently canceling my debit card, I bet they find my account then!
