On demand needs time controls
by Dkaye1027 on 2021/01/14 20:56
No time bar on the on demand shows. Can’t skip ahead so if you accidentally start over you’re screwed.
Lost functionality in new version
by Robmdn on 2021/01/14 17:51
I gave the app two stars for its current version. I might give the older version three stars. I’m still using version 3.1702 only because they’ve taken away some functionality in the newer versions. I mostly listen to cable news, CNN, MSNBC. The older version allowed me to restart a program at the beginning, jump around in the program and repeat a section if I liked or go live. That is so important to have! In newer versions, my only choices are pause and go live, that’s it. Developers, please tell me why you removed that functionality from all subsequent versions instead of improving on what you had. I do want to thanks SiriusXM for continuing to support my older version of the app. One other thing, the app needs to give more choices when it loses Wi-Fi connection. I’d like the ability to pause, stop, reset, quit or some other choice besides waiting for Internet connection to reconnect. Sometimes I have to sit there for five minutes waiting.
Garbage!
by Davis fan CLS on 2021/01/13 21:38
This app is AWFUL! Very unreliable, only works part of the time. You better be on wifi or have a cell tower shoved up your rear to get it to work. Otherwise, just stuck.
Horrible App & Customer Service
by S. Stallone on 2021/01/13 18:28
For weeks now the app has not worked properly. The songs on the various channels do not match the songs that play. This would seem like a pretty big glitch and one Sirius would want to fix quickly. It’s been 8 weeks, the problem persists and the tech and customer service has been atrocious. No help, no info, no updates.
Quits
by NewsComercialCommercial on 2021/01/13 13:22
While listening, it stops playing fo no reason. Junk.
Worst app ever!
by Three Chords and the Truth on 2021/01/12 22:45
There are several shows I like on this platform but this app is not functional on an iPhone. I have written to them at least 6 times with no response!
Needs

Apple Watch
by Billington2901 on 2021/01/11 15:08
Will not work with apple watches needs to be fixed for people that go to the gym and want to lessen to music and work out.
Not for driving
by Gb11125 on 2021/01/11 14:03
Not easy to read on the phone screen. Presets (favorites) are hard to read because of all the different fonts and colors. Should look like presets on a radio screen or have a driving mode like Spotify. Needs to be easy to operate as people do want to use this in the car. Will not renew.
Good, but needs watch support
by Ryank9207 on 2021/01/11 13:26
Phone app is great, but PLEASE add Apple Watch support!!
Poor Customer Service
by Jessi456345678 on 2021/01/10 18:21
This review is more on the company than the app itself. I have had SiriusXM for a year now and rarely use it. I was always able to use the app, but when I tried to login online my account said it was never verified and I needed my account number to do that. Well I never received an account number... so my account was impossible to access. I have tried to cancel many times, but always had wait times over an hour so I just gave up. Today I was finally able to get in contact with someone. I wasted 30 minutes of my time with this customer service rep who kept pushing different plans and subscriptions even though I repeatedly stated I wanted my subscription cancelled. Honestly, unless you just love this app stick to something else for your music needs. The customer service here is atrocious.
Junk
by Phil Frakes on 2021/01/10 15:40
Just stops i listen at work all day and it just stops and yes I have full signal 5G app is terrible. Now it doesn’t work at all won’t load and tell me trying to connect junk app I can’t say it enough. Not sure y you ignore people and don’t fix a thing raw I ever see an update from you
App lags behind
by ALB78 on 2021/01/10 15:40
no service today and cannot even report back to Customer Service with any kind of feedback that feature doesn’t even work. They’ll probably blame it on Covid
Cuts out constantly
by KSR5000 on 2021/01/10 15:37
I’m honestly shocked that the app is getting such good reviews. I love sirius and will not get rid of it and perhaps that's the problem. My wife has it in her car and I use the app with my Bluetooth in my car and with perfect wifi at home and at work and the app still crashes and makes me restart shows or music. The design is great, functionality not so much. Recommend they take some pointers from Pandora's staff since they just acquired them.
Might be the worst app in the apple store
by bluedevilz on 2021/01/10 15:33
This never works! Always get kicked out, blank screens. I’ve had to delete and download at least twice a week! Currently it’s taking almost 5 mins to sign in and still not signed in! Absolute garbage! All that money and you can’t even make the app work!🤦🏼‍♂️
Don’t waste your money
by Kw 0816 on 2021/01/09 21:55
They keep raising their prices and reducing their service. I’ve been a subscriber since 2004 and it amazes me how much cheaper it would be to be a new customer rather than continue as a subscriber.

The app defeats the point of XM
by Leaferguy on 2021/01/08 20:52
I've used this extensively on Android and now iOS. same two issues on both platforms (somehow worse on IOS): - settings are regularly reset - the songs do not update on the stations (how is this worse on iOS?) It's better than when it used to randomly crash repeatedly, but it's getting close to time to cancel this service thanks solely to increasingly frustrating app. it's been years of the same issues. fix your stuff!
Love Lurie Daniel Favors ! Please keep her!
by Knicksball on 2021/01/08 18:01
Dear SiriusXM I love Ms Favors in the new 10 o’clock time. Very informative,very knowledgeable. She is a great fit. Thanks You A Lifetime subscriber to Sirius radio Samuel Benton
PoorCustomer Service
by Wo$#&169 on 2021/01/07 18:16
I had been with XM Radio for years, until today. I called them because my service had been shut off after I updated my financial info. I spoke to three people. The first guy went out of his way to puss me off even after we had settled my account, the girl I talked to could not speak English, and she repeatedly asked me questions even after I told her that there was no way I wanted to retain my service. If I ally spoke to a supervisor who went about asking me the same stupid questions. If you don’t listen to your customers, you lose them! Goodbye!
Saving Certain Shows/Playlists
by msosa90 on 2021/01/07 02:52
I absolutely love this App & all the stations. My favorite is the Pitbull station because it’s always on point..! I don’t know if anyone has ever suggested this or if there would be a way to do so, but it’d be awesome to SAVE certain playlists that have played. & To be able to have them for future days. I know you can go back a few hours but there have been so many times I wish I could save a set that was specifically good & listen to it again the following day etc. Otherwise, thanks for a great app!!😀😀🥳🥳
Useless
by Yankees2000 on 2021/01/06 22:13
For over a month this app has had huge problems. I must now delete this app EVERY DAY AND REINSTALL IT TO MAKE IT WORK. Why don’t you hire people with technical skills to make this work right. I have been a subscriber since 2005 and have had the app since it became available. Technical customer service Is also completely un-helpful.
Two Major Flaws
by greatlakesirish on 2021/01/06 13:57
The first flaw is that the app won’t switch to landscape mode when you turn your phone sideways. The second flaw is worse, though. The current songs shown don’t update when looking at your favorite stations. They just stay on whatever song was there when you opened the app. It’s very annoying. BTW both of these flaws are on the Android and Apple versions of the app and have been there for years. You’d think they could fix these obvious flaws.
No way 5 stars
by Meatley on 2021/01/06 13:21
This app is terrible Not user friendly Not reliable I just want to pause and play Howard, it shouldn’t be this hard :(
App won’t launch
by jro266 on 2021/01/05 22:43
iPhone X . Downloaded app. Signed in and it just pulses. Never fully opens. Oh well.
Howard’s show download keeps cutting out in last minute.
by Rickyfiggs on 2021/01/05 21:03
Please fix the problem of downloaded shows on Howard’s channels cutting off in the last minute of shows.
App Does Not Refresh
by Ben Smith-Jones on 2021/01/05 17:27
Do not recommend this if you are planning to use an iPhone app to listen to XM. Nothing refreshes and is outdates making it very difficult to maneuver and change stations based on songs or shows you want to change to.
What a mess
by TrishPizzo on 2021/01/05 15:30
Why do shows now run from 12-11:59, i have no idea who the DJs are any more as it’s one long continuous show, if you hit restart show it goes back to midnight.
Fix this app!
by AlFromCT on 2021/01/02 20:37
Basic functionality does not work. The app does not show you the latest song playing on any given station, it shows like the first song you listened to. Hey Sirius, fix this!!!
Getting worse!
by Jlr886 on 2021/01/02 19:53
I’ve been using this app for a year and past few months it will stop working! I listen to Jeff Lewis live and whether its live or a past episode the audio will cut out and I will miss several moments of the show. I am so frustrated with this app! Please fix soon!!!

Needs Apple Watch Capability
by siriwastaken on 2020/12/31 16:48
Why have you not made your app capable with Apple Watch?
Still the worst app in the App Store
by clandestinus on 2020/12/28 22:47
It’s amazing to me how many years I’ve used this app and how many problems there still are. I was just listening to an interview several spots before what was live, and after gassing up my car when my radio came on it had reset to live and I had to restart the interview I was listening to over and find where I left off. Just one example of stupid behavior, there are plenty others.
Love it. But still needs work
by Goodrfriend on 2020/12/26 11:10
App is a great way to listen to XM radio. But it is time to think about user interface. If I am listening to one station why do I need to get through so many clicks to see other channels? It would have been much easier to click on the “program guide” icon menu to see what is currently being played on other channels and decide if it worth to switch the station before listening and going back in case you don’t like it. Do it at least for at least one subsection music-Rock. Or even better allow the users to build their own favorite channel list and have a peak view of all the programming on them real time. June 6, 2018. Thanks a lot for answering my suggestion to built a better app. It is now truly a great app. One more functionality to add is to have an ability to capture a currently playing song. The name and the author instead of writing a note to myself or adding it on Spotify. That would be a minimum. Or you could go even further and allow listeners to create their own playlist right there while the song is being played. December 26, 2020. Suddenly shows from a cable channel Fox News are no longer available for playback 5 episode’s des as they were before December 15. Don’t know if it is a bug or decision made to discontinue this programming feature.
App Deletes Downloads after a short period of time
by Introsplash on 2020/12/24 18:45
Why is it that after I download what I wish to save on my phone, This app automatically deletes everything I downloaded after a few days? If I allow the app access to write to my folder it doesn’t have the right to delete anything from my folder.
Better than prior releases but still buggy
by nsouza on 2020/12/23 19:07
They’ve made large strides in the quality of this app but I’m still having issues with the downloaded feed stopping with seconds left in the show.
Glitchy
by TayRay1018 on 2020/12/22 21:05
I love the app and use it every single day because it’s commercial-free. With that being said, the app is very finicky and glitchy (hence the 3 stars). I have to restart the app everyday if I’ve clicked out of it and gone into YouTube for just a moment. I also notice that at least once a week, the app takes time loading but never ends up fully loading, forcing me to use another app that will properly load. Hopefully these glitches are worked out because again, I use the app everyday.
Not good
by Cdymlr on 2020/12/22 17:12
Drained my whole battery in one hour. (iPhone XS)
Horrible
by LivingColour on 2020/12/21 15:27
Extremely buggy app. Buggy to the point it probably wouldn’t be a beta by most developer standards. CarPlay integration is a joke. Which is what I attempt to use it for because the audio quality is so much better through the app.
Keeps stopping
by Wombatmatty on 2020/12/19 10:46
The app keeps pausing itself. Or the music just stops and the app has to be restarted. Or you get the vague “technical error“ message.
Still doesn’t work
by bad tonic on 2020/12/19 06:10
Waited a month for this update since the app doesn’t work on the new iOS and now it still doesn’t work on the latest iOS version.
Can’t even open the app
by snoman72 on 2020/12/18 22:07
Thank god I’m on a free trial, certainly won’t be paying for this. The app won’t even open on my iPhone 10. Tried resetting password still won’t open. You want people to subscribe maybe make sure they can use it?
App updates reduce you back to worst quality audio
by joedavenport on 2020/12/17 20:31
The app updates often force your settings out of Maximum quality and set back to Normal quality, this happens nearly every update.
Nightmare to cancel subscription
by Iriyatesse on 2020/12/17 15:31
I signed up for the free trial and to my great irritation discovered you can’t just cancel your subscription via the website. You have to either text or call them in order to cancel. I have been trying to cancel for the past three days and I keep getting sent in circles. Their text platform is a nightmare. I either don’t hear back from them or I get disconnected and have to go over the whole thing again with a new agent. I had to deal with one customer service agent who clearly didn’t speak English well that argued with me trying to convince me not to cancel. I still haven’t managed to get my subscription canceled. It may be a great service for their subscribers idk. But for me it’s been a nightmare I’d never repeat. Their customer service isn’t worth the headache.
Doesn’t Work!
by SirCubey on 2020/12/17 11:35
Can’t get the app to open on my updated iPhone 10.
Cannot Login But i Paid
by 3y3nsky on 2020/12/17 10:47
app has issues where i cannot login. doesnt recognize my username and password i cannot get around it. error code 25009. i chNged my password and verified i have the correct streaming package. couldnt get around it and my radio in my car just keeps saying updating. the customer service is poor and the lady didn’t understand what I was saying and told me they had mo good deals but i went online and hot a better offer than actually calling. this is the good ole Bait & Switch.
Continue where I left off!
by Tundra417 on 2020/12/16 20:19
App doesn’t remember where you left off...stopped listening for 10-15 minutes and it picked up live instead of where I left off.
Very buggy
by dopeganger124 on 2020/12/16 15:00
The app is great when it works, but if you’re behind on something that’s playing, it will randomly jump to live without me telling it to, or just stop playing completely until I force close the app, to which point more of them then not forces me to go live again.
Ok for iPhone but not for the watch
by Garridoalx on 2020/12/16 11:39
Please make possible to change channels amongst your favorites list.
Won’t open!
by Vvg123 on 2020/12/16 05:09
I have deleted and reinstalled several times, but this app will not open. What else can I try??
App constantly crashes
by Lglpadam on 2020/12/16 03:13
App will only play a few hours and then crashes. SiriusXM you need to fix your streaming app.
CarPlay integration is half baked
by WGRoper on 2020/12/15 23:15
The audio quality is so much better through the app instead of off the satellites. Using the app with CarPlay is a frustrating experience. Once it works, it sounds great but it’s easier just to use other streaming services instead.
Disappointing
by 8593829- on 2020/12/15 21:15
Compared to Spotify or Pandora, which never has problems loading or connecting to an ISP, this app is so clunky.
Refuses to connect
by Wvjyfbtrbhyvhschyvbtgbyfv on 2020/12/14 15:29
App refuses to connect.
Can’t find password
by whadaya want on 2020/12/14 01:59
This is the sorriest app I’ve ever tried to use. The system doesn’t recognize my username or password and I have uses the only one I know I would have used. If I don’t get help tonight, I will delete the app and never use Sirius XM again!
Worthless
by 1Major1 on 2020/12/12 10:33
Can not sign even sign on. Waste of my time.
Latest version has iOS Bluetooth audio bug
by Miles267 on 2020/12/11 16:35
Current app version has Bluetooth bug with iOS where the app will disconnect from Bluetooth audio and cannot be rectified without a device reset. This can be verified by listening to other audio over BT whereas SiriusXM app BT audio connectivity crashes, with it becoming only app without audio.
Not working
by Adrlh on 2020/12/11 12:52
App doesn’t open, stuck on welcome screen
Love the content but the app is stale
by Mac B from Tennessee on 2020/12/10 19:22
I love how Pandora offers Siri Shortcuts for my favorite stations and HomePod integration. It would be lovely if the Sirius app would follow suit. The content is great, as it has always been, but I will probably use the app less and less if it’s not as convenient as Apple’s Music app or Sirius’s Pandora app.
By far the worst app I have ever used.
by IAmYungDaniel on 2020/12/10 19:17
It rarely works. Constantly pauses, skips forward, gets static, restart shows or will randomly closes. Would never recommend... save your money and unsubscribe from these frauds.
Finally ended my service
by YvneSpr on 2020/12/10 16:08
Since Howard changed his format and his show went to crap this app isn’t worth the price..
Can’t Even Login
by RPC21 on 2020/12/10 13:58
If you sign up for Sirius just do it for the car radio. The app doesn’t seem to have a great performance track record. Search the reviews and sort them by most recent. Disappointed in the app.
Love the service
by Bakk322 on 2020/12/10 09:02
SiriusXM app has improved greatly over the years! Only thing I want to see is Shortcuts support! Would make it so easy to say one thing to Siri and have the app launch and resume playing! That’s all I want!
Doesn’t work
by alebej on 2020/12/10 03:09
App says “Sorry, we’re having a technical problem” when I try to log in. My brand new wifi is working fine and not the issue. Really dissapointing.
Apple Watch Compatibility
by Branman1020 on 2020/12/09 21:45
Hello Guys, just wondering when you guys will roll out a compatible version for Apple watches. I enjoy listening to the Sirius XM app and notice there is no app compatibility for the Apple Watch. I had to carry my phone around to listen to the app. Hope it’s available for the Apple Watch soon! Love the improvements, keep up the good work on keeping them bugs out!💯⌚️🔓
Freeze!!!
by TrottJLee on 2020/12/09 18:05
This app freezes way too much. Too much going on; just keep it simple...
Getting Worse
by D(h)3 on 2020/12/09 16:12
It’s never worked for CarPlay, which I can deal with. But now, it constantly has issues just running on my phone. Terrible App
Never works
by the pinchegera on 2020/12/09 14:49
The app never works. Seriously why pay more when the app is totally useless. You also use to be able to skip to the beginning and that feature is no longer available. I’m in the software industry and I would fire every single software developer who created this app. They are incompetent.
Useless - will not accept login
by tms9055 on 2020/12/09 05:36
How am I supposed to use a free trial if this NEVER accepts login credentials?! I have changed my password, STILL doesn’t work!! Why pay for something that is completely unusable?!
Tab missing channel 148
by Recure on 2020/12/09 03:41
Radio classic channel 148 had a tab in lower left corner to listen to previous episodes. This tab is missing. Called SiriusXM today they were no help. Suggested I delete then reinstall app. Don’t think so with all problems with app I read. Will keep as is without tab to previous episodes. I guess same a streaming. Maybe gone different now.
Issues with app
by Starla10 on 2020/12/08 14:46

by Coscat123 on 2020/12/07 22:30
can’t even log in to my account. loads and loads and nothing happens. contacted support and they can’t help. disappointing, frustrating, and not worth it
the apple tv version is really horrible
by macsiah on 2020/12/07 17:43
it won’t turn off when i want it to. every time I choose a favorite it wants to delete it. the program info at the bottom of the screen often has nothing to do with program playing.
Can’t log back in
by brittney8818 on 2020/12/07 15:14
Ever since my cat stepped on my phone. I can’t log back in. I tried uninstalling and reinstalling restarting my phone. And I’m super annoyed.... other than that I love Sirius XM
Used to work great, no longer
by Badazzkzz on 2020/12/07 14:16
This app used to work great. Now it takes 1 - 5 minutes or longer to connect and start streaming, if it connects at all. All my other music (Pandora, Spotify, I Heart Radio) apps work fine, so it’s not a bad connection. This is from an up-to-date iPhone 8.
The worst
by Wa2761 on 2020/12/06 20:35
I love having Sirius XM, works great in the car. The app is terrible though, especially recently. There are days where it doesn’t work at all. Now it works but it NEVER shows the current song that’s playing, it’s always delayed.
The as is a hot piece of garbage
by thagreyjedi on 2020/12/06 19:50
If you can get past the login screen consider yourself lucky all I wanted to do was listen to some music but the app won’t let load after I put in my email and password.
Songs won’t update!
by Mjackerm on 2020/12/06 15:08
Doesn’t tell you what song is playing after the first song.
App Indicates Wrong Songs
by Kamboures on 2020/12/05 17:40
Looking at my favorite channels, the app indicates a song is playing. When I select the channel, a different song is playing. This is true 70% of the time. I contacted Sirius and they told to reinstall the app. I did this, and it didn’t fix the problem. I emailed them back and they didn’t reply.
App is good but where is Apple Watch support?
by Ecw73 on 2020/12/05 13:45
Bring this to Apple Watch so I can stream over cellular and I’d listen to it 2x more than I do.
Won’t open
by Racerguy88 on 2020/12/05 01:38
This has to be the worst app I’ve ever downloaded. It won’t even open, uninstalled and redownloaded it twice and still won’t work.
Login does not work
by JPBEAU01 on 2020/12/04 23:20
... and nobody on their end can find a solution to fix it. Literally the most basic thing. I’ve never experienced this on any other app.
Upload issues
by Amylb7 on 2020/12/04 21:15
I enjoy listening to Sirius XM, however the app is sub par. I can’t get it to upload any information and have never been able to listen to anything on it.
Worst customer service! Worst user interface/experience design!
by Shavkat Metekov on 2020/12/04 20:48
I subscribed to listen to on a road trip because the car I had had the SiriusXM app. I listened to it the same day and that’s probably it. It charged 5 or so months at my initial sign up so i kind of forgot about it. Then I saw the 6th (or so) month charge and I remembered that I need to cancel it. It the weekend so tried to cancel online. I couldn’t login online because it didn’t recognize my email. Although I received emails from them, one of which clearly states that my email is my username. I said, maybe it’s a glitch tried to cancel through the app but it doesn’t have cancel option in the app (hm, you might think, why thy would be?) I couldn’t figure it out. I called the number it said to call back on weekdays/work hours. Over the weekend I forgot about it, got another charge and called in. Agent picked (not gonna mention names) who despite my clear explanation and experience of frustration tried to keep me subscribed by giving me “a big” discount of 75%! Wow! (Sarcasm). Then I explained that I was frustrated with how difficult it was to cancel my subscription online and through the app when the agent said, “oh, are you upset because you subscribed for our serviced and you forgot to cancel your subscription and you’re coming at us?” Lol I asked him, “are you stakeholder of this company?” He haven’t heard of that term. I went on to explain that there is no need to take it personally and I am just trying to cancel my subscription. I had to reason with him that all I need was to cancel, first time ever that I had to explain over and over again that I want to cancel my account. Anyways, I believe these make money out of people forgetting or delaying canceling their account. While there are so many free apps that offer the same if not more content! Don’t waste your money!
Unfortunate
by ;(64/, on 2020/12/04 18:44
Have been a paying customer for over 4 years and always paid on time. Yet they keep discounting my subscription without notice & leave me on hold for 45+ minutes to resolve the issue.
App doesn’t work
by kdoug1992 on 2020/12/04 16:31
I downloaded the app and the first time it let me sign in but wouldn’t load any stations. So I uninstalled and redownloaded the app and now it won’t even let me log in... I’m on a free trial right now and thank goodness I am because I will not be paying for this junk service.
So bad
by 5 star reviews all fake on 2020/12/04 10:58
Does it work for anyone? Can’t even get it to come on once. Deleted and re-installed 3 times. Garbage
Seriously awful
by KB2905 on 2020/12/03 13:58
I listen to the Michelle Collins show every day and it’s anyone’s guess whether or not the episodes will be available to download, and sometimes aren’t even posted at all even when the show airs!!
CarPlay app still buggy
by agc6114 on 2020/12/02 04:25
Despite weekly upgrades the CarPlay app is still full of bugs. Recents and recommended and favorites not displaying everything every time.
College Kid Friendly: Cheap & Easy To Use!
by Dee Berry on 2020/12/02 02:27
The only reason I downloaded this was to listen to Channel 96: Kevin Hart! I was skeptical about paying for ANYTHING since everything is available elsewhere for free. It cost me $1.15 to start. Yeah......$1.15 which is about what I spend on gum, candy or one of those annoying fidget spinners. Totally worth it! Thanks Guys! Love you Kev!
Consistently degrading performance
by email gal on 2020/12/01 22:54
For what we spend on a subscription to Sirius radio, this app needs to be completely revamped. Every single week the issues get worse. It consistently drops during play, sometimes switching to a completely different channel. Or else it jumps from a current live session to an on-demand one. There’s no rhyme nor reason but it’s very frustrating that the app is so bad. When you consider that we spend more time listening on the app than we do on our car radios I would think they would figure out how to improve things.
You cancel Jason Ellis Show after 15 years of loyalty?
by localdan on 2020/12/01 22:07
I will never use siriusxm ever again after their recent firing of Jason Ellis and his staff. I have cancelled my subscription!
Canceled sub & deleted app.
by WULFKNIVES on 2020/12/01 21:21
With the recent departure of Jason Ellis, this company & app has zero use to me. The only reason I, and thousands of others listened, is because of Jason Ellis. The free podcast app, and a subscription to Tidal (for music) is cheaper, and better than this app! So long Sirius !!
Fired/canceled Jason Ellis
by LOVEYMcLOVERSON on 2020/12/01 19:56
So three months ago I subscribed to SiriusXM to listen to the Jason Ellis show and three months later he’s been canceled so I’m canceling my subscription
Please add HomePod support to the app
by Azgw on 2020/11/30 05:07
Please add HomePod support to the app. That would be awesome.
They cancelled Ellis
by golden420 on 2020/11/28 22:37
The only reason to have the service, and they cancel it. Glad I’ll be saving the money now. The Jason Ellis show is moving to podcast. If you’re a fan, you’ll now be able to access it for free.
SiriusXM app

Got message can’t use this app ???
App has never completely worked correctly
by Msauasen on 2020/11/26 17:37
Every release of this app has fix a problem but then breaks three other things. It’s never worked correctly with CarPlay, it’s never even worked correctly on iPhone natively. Lock screen can say it’s playing app says it’s not. I’m done with this lousy company, especially now that they’ve canceled Jason Ellis. At least I don’t have to endure garbage app updates anymore given the only reason I still use the service is for Ellis. At least he wasn’t a washed up old hack like the big name SiriusXM will continue to bet on as they loose more subs.
CarPlay in iOS12 still broken
by Smiffleblurf on 2018/10/10 05:01
I purchased an unlimited cellular Internet subscription to use this app in CarPlay instead of using my actual SiriusXM antenna on my car — THATS’s how much I like using this app. The last redesign was an amazing step forward. I dreaded updating to iOS 12 and sure enough the app on CarPlay wouldn’t load any of my favorites and recents. Even after this recent CarPlay fix update it didn’t fix much. Recents list still doesn’t load at all. When I still pull up my channel favorites it’ll either never load or have this long delay until it loads or I have to dangerously open the app on my phone to jumpstart it to load. I did notice once I was able to get the channels to load in favorites the recents tab finally loaded up, but still that’s an awkward bug. Just really bad loading issues in regards to displaying listed information in CarPlay all around. Hopefully a fix is coming soon so that I don’t have to use a one star review to report a bug, but the one star is well earned when the “App Support” link takes you to a FAQ site that doesn’t list this issue or a bug reporting option for this app. This app isn’t even listed on the Contact Us support options. This whole experience is adding misanthropy fuel.
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!
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.
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.
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.
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.....
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.
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.
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.
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!!!
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.
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!!!
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.
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!
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???
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!
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???
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.

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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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
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.
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
What is playing?
by Padre Joe on 2018/01/03 21:42
Great app! I love listening to music on Sirius XM most mornings and it’s nice and convenient to use my iPad to do it. The only problem is that there seems to be a glitch in the display of what is currently playing (I’m not sure what it’s supposed to be called, so I hope that makes sense). When I select a station to listen to, the current song displays like normal. Sometimes the next song displays as well, but then the display seems to get “stuck” on that first or second song and doesn’t update the title, artist, or album cover until I change stations. Then it starts all over again. My Favorites list shows the correct title and artist, but the main display remains on that first or second song. That’s the one issue I’ve noticed. Otherwise, love the app!
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.
Resisted, but now regret waiting!
by Olde Poodle on 2018/02/28 03:20
I very much enjoy my automobile XM Radio on multiple vehicles, so did not want to spend more for an iPhone version, but having the XM/Sirius app in my pocket has proven to be even more enjoyable and I use it more than I do the car subscriptions. My favorite station, Classical Pops, is still available on the app even after it was removed from the radio! As a extra bonus, the Christmas music is still available now, and it is almost March. Further, the Fox News and Fox Business programs that I like can be restarted if I am late, or paused when I am interrupted. My only complaint is that the progress bar is inaccurate, so that it is difficult to know where one is in a news program, and the program titles do not keep up to the moment like the music titles do. All in all, I am very satisfied with Sirius/XM.
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!
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.
Serious downgrade with last update
by Vitosim on 2018/07/03 15:06
I have been a Sirius app user for years but the last app update completely ruined the experience. Since the update the tiles in my favorites consistently represent the wrong channels. For example, as I right now listen to The Lumineers on Alt Nation the title says Oingo Boingo is playing. Oingo Boingo is actually playing live on 1st Wave. I don’t even have 1st Wave in my favorites so I can’t explain that. This happens across all of My Favorites I’ve tried to delete my favorites hoping that deleting them and saving them again might fix this, but I can’t delete any of my favorites. When I deselect the star it just highlights itself again. I’ve deleted the app and reinstalled it again but nothing changes. Also, the entire new user interface is a pain to use when driving. I mostly listen during my commute. Sirius please go back to the old interface or at least give me that option. Keep in mind this isn’t a free service. I’m a paying customer but perhaps not for much longer.
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.
Reliable yet intrusive
by delmore dingleberry on 2018/06/26 05:08
Always on, always ready, variety, pay to play It has done exactly wat was intended to happen. I am addicted to it. Just like cell, apps, pc, internet, dna, all just another avenue for our government to intrude a bit deeper into our lives. Maybe all of this will end up on a positive note. Our govt is imploding and corruption is being exposed so deep into every branch of gov, incl local gov. I am all about it. Wat goes up will come down. Watching the bad actors in our gov get a dose of wat they been doing to everyone else. Once more of us realize that the majority of corrupt players in our govt not only have ability to watch our family through their cell phone, tv, pc, anything attached to internet or especially anything called smart.... Just the truth from one that knows

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.
Meh, save yourself some money and listen to iHeartRadio
by Not Sonya on 2019/04/25 23:44
I found a better variety of music on iheart radio with the added bonus of being able to search and listen for specific bands or podcasts. And iHeartRadio is free. So you have to listen to one commercial once in a great while... totally worth it. Also, the cancellation process is nasty. You can’t cancel within the app or even online. You actually have to call customer service. I was called Valerie, then Sonya (twice). Neither of which are remotely close to my name. Awkward! Then I was given the option to GET A DEAL. No thank you. I was put on hold, I erroneously thought to process the cancellation. WOULD YOU LIKE ANOTHER DEAL. Nope, still trying to cancel. Put on hold again, for cancellation? NOPE ANOTHER DEAL. I admit by then I lost my temper and said,” I. Just. Want. To. Cancel!” Then SiriusXM was able to! And they only called me Sonya one more time.
Xm radio is the way to go!
by wes from central NY on 2018/06/22 15:16
Never thought I’d pay for radio but...after listening to my local country stations for years, the amount of commercials have overcome the music. They also tend to repeat the same songs too much. I tried xm radio on free trial then became a subscriber. It’s great! My two favorite stations are the Highway & Prime country. The highway has an awesome morning show I love and they get the newest country songs before anyone else. Prime country plays the older country songs I grew up with from the 80s & 90s that the local stations just don’t anymore. Best parts, variety & NO commercials ever!! My opinion, totally worth it. And if u get the app for your phone, u can listen anytime anywhere u have good service. I highly recommend Xm. Their customer service is really good as well if u need assistance. Definelty worth it if u love music!! W.D. from N.Y.
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!
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.
Streaming service fail
by Samandmarinasdad on 2020/01/10 05:49
I cancelled this service on the first day of my free trial. The content is news services you can get for free on iHeartRadio and garbage music channels that feel like podcasts. I have seen their full boat service in peoples cars and this isn’t even close to that. Don’t let the price point trick you all this content can be found for free on a number of other platforms. In addition when you try to log into your account online, their website needs you to give it a car vin number or a radio ID number which you don’t have with a streaming account. To cancel I had to engage in an online chat and have it done manually. When I told the agent that I couldn’t log in and why he said he was aware of the problem. This service is a cash grab to prop up their now antiquated service. It wasn’t worth it to me for free, to pay for it is ridiculous. Between Apple Music and iHeartRadio radio you get all of this with better service and more content.

On demand needs time controls
by Dkaye1027 on 2021/01/14 20:56
No time bar on the on demand shows. Can’t skip ahead so if you accidentally start over you’re screwed.
Lost functionality in new version
by Robmdn on 2021/01/14 17:51
I gave the app two stars for its current version. I might give the older version three stars. I’m still using version 3.1702 only because they’ve taken away some functionality in the newer versions. I mostly listen to cable news, CNN, MSNBC. The older version allowed me to restart a program at the beginning, jump around in the program and repeat a section if I liked or go live. That is so important to have! In newer versions, my only choices are pause and go live, that’s it. Developers, please tell me why you removed that functionality from all subsequent versions instead of improving on what you had. I do want to thanks SiriusXM for continuing to support my older version of the app. One other thing, the app needs to give more choices when it loses Wi-Fi connection. I’d like the ability to pause, stop, reset, quit or some other choice besides waiting for Internet connection to reconnect. Sometimes I have to sit there for five minutes waiting.
Garbage!
by Davis fan CLS on 2021/01/13 21:38
This app is AWFUL! Very unreliable, only works part of the time. You better be on wifi or have a cell tower shoved up your rear to get it to work. Otherwise, just stuck.
Horrible App & Customer Service
by S. Stallone on 2021/01/13 18:28
For weeks now the app has not worked properly. The songs on the various channels do not match the songs that play. This would seem like a pretty big glitch and one Sirius would want to fix quickly. It’s been 8 weeks, the problem persists and the tech and customer service has been atrocious. No help, no info, no updates.
Quits
by NewsComercialCommercial on 2021/01/13 13:22
While listening, it stops playing fo no reason. Junk.
Worst app ever!
by Three Chords and the Truth on 2021/01/12 22:45
There are several shows I like on this platform but this app is not functional on an iPhone. I have written to them at least 6 times with no response!

Apple Watch
by Billington2901 on 2021/01/11 15:08
Will not work with apple watches needs to be fixed for people that go to the gym and want to lessen to music and work out.
Not for driving
by Gb11125 on 2021/01/11 14:03
Not easy to read on the phone screen. Presets (favorites) are hard to read because of all the different fonts and colors. Should look like presets on a radio screen or have a driving mode like Spotify. Needs to be easy to operate as people do want to use this in the car. Will not renew.
Good, but needs watch support
by Ryank9207 on 2021/01/11 13:26
Phone app is great, but PLEASE add Apple Watch support!!
Poor Customer Service
by Jessi456345678 on 2021/01/10 18:21
This review is more on the company than the app itself. I have had SiriusXM for a year now and rarely use it. I was always able to use the app, but when I tried to login online my account said it was never verified and I needed my account number to do that. Well I never received an account number... so my account was impossible to access. I have tried to cancel many times, but always had wait times over an hour so I just gave up. Today I was finally able to get in contact with someone. I wasted 30 minutes of my time with this customer service rep who kept pushing different plans and subscriptions even though I repeatedly stated I wanted my subscription cancelled. Honestly, unless you just love this app stick to something else for your music needs. The customer service here is atrocious.
Junk
by Phil Frakes on 2021/01/10 15:40
Just stops i listen at work all day and it just stops and yes I have full signal 5G app is terrible. Now it doesn’t work at all won’t load and tell me trying to connect junk app I can’t say it enough. Not sure y you ignore people and don’t fix a thing raw I ever see an update from you
App lags behind
by ALB78 on 2021/01/10 15:40
no service today and cannot even report back to Customer Service with any kind of feedback that feature doesn’t even work. They’ll probably blame it on Covid
Cuts out constantly
by KSR5000 on 2021/01/10 15:37
I’m honestly shocked that the app is getting such good reviews. I love sirius and will not get rid of it and perhaps that's the problem. My wife has it in her car and I use the app with my Bluetooth in my car and with perfect wifi at home and at work and the app still crashes and makes me restart shows or music. The design is great, functionality not so much. Recommend they take some pointers from Pandora's staff since they just acquired them.
Might be the worst app in the apple store
by bluedevilz on 2021/01/10 15:33
This never works! Always get kicked out, blank screens. I’ve had to delete and download at least twice a week! Currently it’s taking almost 5 mins to sign in and still not signed in! Absolute garbage! All that money and you can’t even make the app work!🤦🏼‍♂️
Don’t waste your money
by Kw 0816 on 2021/01/09 21:55
They keep raising their prices and reducing their service. I’ve been a subscriber since 2004 and it amazes me how much cheaper it would be to be a new customer rather than continue as a subscriber.

The app defeats the point of XM
by Leaferguy on 2021/01/08 20:52
I've used this extensively on Android and now iOS. same two issues on both platforms (somehow worse on IOS): - settings are regularly reset - the songs do not update on the stations (how is this worse on iOS?) It's better than when it used to randomly crash repeatedly, but it's getting close to time to cancel this service thanks solely to increasingly frustrating app. it's been years of the same issues. fix your stuff!
Love Lurie Daniel Favors ! Please keep her!
by Knicksball on 2021/01/08 18:01
Dear SiriusXM I love Ms Favors in the new 10 o’clock time. Very informative,very knowledgeable. She is a great fit. Thanks You A Lifetime subscriber to Sirius radio Samuel Benton
PoorCustomer Service
by Wo$#&169 on 2021/01/07 18:16
I had been with XM Radio for years, until today. I called them because my service had been shut off after I updated my financial info. I spoke to three people. The first guy went out of his way to puss me off even after we had settled my account, the girl I talked to could not speak English, and she repeatedly asked me questions even after I told her that there was no way I wanted to retain my service. If I ally spoke to a supervisor who went about asking me the same stupid questions. If you don’t listen to your customers, you lose them! Goodbye!
Saving Certain Shows/Playlists
by msosa90 on 2021/01/07 02:52
I absolutely love this App & all the stations. My favorite is the Pitbull station because it’s always on point..! I don’t know if anyone has ever suggested this or if there would be a way to do so, but it’d be awesome to SAVE certain playlists that have played. & To be able to have them for future days. I know you can go back a few hours but there have been so many times I wish I could save a set that was specifically good & listen to it again the following day etc. Otherwise, thanks for a great app!!😀😀🥳🥳
Useless
by Yankees2000 on 2021/01/06 22:13
For over a month this app has had huge problems. I must now delete this app EVERY DAY AND REINSTALL IT TO MAKE IT WORK. Why don’t you hire people with technical skills to make this work right. I have been a subscriber since 2005 and have had the app since it became available. Technical customer service Is also completely un-helpful.
Two Major Flaws
by greatlakesirish on 2021/01/06 13:57
The first flaw is that the app won’t switch to landscape mode when you turn your phone sideways. The second flaw is worse, though. The current songs shown don’t update when looking at your favorite stations. They just stay on whatever song was there when you opened the app. It’s very annoying. BTW both of these flaws are on the Android and Apple versions of the app and have been there for years. You’d think they could fix these obvious flaws.
No way 5 stars
by Meatley on 2021/01/06 13:21
This app is terrible Not user friendly Not reliable I just want to pause and play Howard, it shouldn’t be this hard :(
App won’t launch
by jro266 on 2021/01/05 22:43
iPhone X . Downloaded app. Signed in and it just pulses. Never fully opens. Oh well.
Howard’s show download keeps cutting out in last minute.
by Rickyfiggs on 2021/01/05 21:03
Please fix the problem of downloaded shows on Howard’s channels cutting off in the last minute of shows.
App Does Not Refresh
by Ben Smith-Jones on 2021/01/05 17:27
Do not recommend this if you are planning to use an iPhone app to listen to XM. Nothing refreshes and is outdates making it very difficult to maneuver and change stations based on songs or shows you want to change to.
What a mess
by TrishPizzo on 2021/01/05 15:30
Why do shows now run from 12-11:59, i have no idea who the DJs are any more as it’s one long continuous show, if you hit restart show it goes back to midnight.
Fix this app!
by AlFromCT on 2021/01/02 20:37
Basic functionality does not work. The app does not show you the latest song playing on any given station, it shows like the first song you listened to. Hey Sirius, fix this!!!
Getting worse!
by Jlr886 on 2021/01/02 19:53
I’ve been using this app for a year and past few months it will stop working! I listen to Jeff Lewis live and whether its live or a past episode the audio will cut out and I will miss several moments of the show. I am so frustrated with this app! Please fix soon!!!

Needs Apple Watch Capability

Why have you not made your app capable with Apple Watch?
Still the worst app in the App Store
by clandestinus on 2020/12/28 22:47
It’s amazing to me how many years I’ve used this app and how many problems there still are. I was just listening to an interview several spots before what was live, and after gassing up my car when my radio came on it had reset to live and I had to restart the interview I was listening to over and find where I left off. Just one example of stupid behavior, there are plenty others.
Love it. But still needs work
by Goodrfriend on 2020/12/26 11:10
App is a great way to listen to XM radio. But it is time to think about user interface. If I am listening to one station why do I need to get through so many clicks to see other channels? It would have been much easier to click on the “program guide” icon menu to see what is currently being played on other channels and decide if it worth to switch the station before listening and going back in case you don’t like it. Do it at least for at least one subsection music-Rock. Or even better allow the users to build their own favorite channel list and have a peak view of all the programming on them real time. June 6, 2018. Thanks a lot for answering my suggestion to built a better app. It is now truly a great app. One more functionality to add is to have an ability to capture a currently playing song. The name and the author instead of writing a note to myself or adding it on Spotify. That would be a minimum. Or you could go even further and allow listeners to create their own playlist right there while the song is being played. December 26, 2020. Suddenly shows from a cable channel Fox News are no longer available for playback 5 episode’s des as they were before December 15. Don’t know if it is a bug or decision made to discontinue this programming feature.
App Deletes Downloads after a short period of time
by Introsplash on 2020/12/24 18:45
Why is it that after I download what I wish to save on my phone, This app automatically deletes everything I downloaded after a few days? If I allow the app access to write to my folder it doesn’t have the right to delete anything from my folder.
Better than prior releases but still buggy
by nsouza on 2020/12/23 19:07
They’ve made large strides in the quality of this app but I’m still having issues with the downloaded feed stopping with seconds left in the show.
Glitchy
by TayRay1018 on 2020/12/22 21:05
I love the app and use it every single day because it’s commercial-free. With that being said, the app is very finicky and glitchy (hence the 3 stars). I have to restart the app everyday if I’ve clicked out of it and gone into YouTube for just a moment. I also notice that at least once a week, the app takes time loading but never ends up fully loading, forcing me to use another app that will properly load. Hopefully these glitches are worked out because again, I use the app everyday.
Not good
by Cdymlr on 2020/12/22 17:12
Drained my whole battery in one hour. (iPhone XS)
Horrible
by LivingColour on 2020/12/21 15:27
Extremely buggy app. Buggy to the point it probably wouldn’t be a beta by most developer standards. CarPlay integration is a joke. Which is what I attempt to use it for because the audio quality is so much better through the app.
Keeps stopping
by Wombatmatty on 2020/12/19 10:46
The app keeps pausing itself. Or the music just stops and the app has to be restarted. Or you get the vague “technical error“ message.
Still doesn’t work
by bad tonic on 2020/12/19 06:10
Waited a month for this update since the app doesn’t work on the new iOS and now it still doesn’t work on the latest iOS version.
Can’t even open the app
by snoman72 on 2020/12/18 22:07
Thank god I’m on a free trial, certainly won’t be paying for this. The app won’t even open on my iPhone 10. Tried resetting password still won’t open. You want people to subscribe maybe make sure they can use it?
App updates reduce you back to worst quality audio
by joedavenport on 2020/12/17 20:31
The app updates often force your settings out of Maximum quality and set back to Normal quality, this happens nearly every update.
Nightmare to cancel subscription
by Iriyatesse on 2020/12/17 15:31
I signed up for the free trial and to my great irritation discovered you can’t just cancel your subscription via the website. You have to either text or call them in order to cancel. I have been trying to cancel for the past three days and I keep getting sent in circles. Their text platform is a nightmare. I either don’t hear back from them or I get disconnected and have to go over the whole thing again with a new agent. I had to deal with one customer service agent who clearly didn’t speak English well that argued with me trying to convince me not to cancel. I still haven’t managed to get my subscription canceled. It may be a great service for their subscribers idk. But for me it’s been a nightmare I’d never repeat. Their customer service isn’t worth the headache.
Doesn’t Work!
by SirCubey on 2020/12/17 11:35
Can’t get the app to open on my updated iPhone 10.
Cannot Login But i Paid
by 3y3nsky on 2020/12/17 10:47
app has issues where i cannot login. doesnt recognize my username and password i cannot get around it. error code 25009. i chNged my password and verified i have the correct streaming package. couldnt get around it and my radio in my car just keeps saying updating. the customer service is poor and the lady didn’t understand what I was saying and told me they had mo good deals but i went online and hot a better offer than actually calling. this is the good ole Bait & Switch.
Continue where I left off!
by Tundra417 on 2020/12/16 20:19
App doesn’t remember where you left off...stopped listening for 10-15 minutes and it picked up live instead of where I left off.
Very buggy
by dopeganger124 on 2020/12/16 15:00
The app is great when it works, but if you’re behind on something that’s playing, it will randomly jump to live without me telling it to, or just stop playing completely until I force close the app, to which point more of them then not forces me to go live again.
Ok for iPhone but not for the watch
by Garridoalx on 2020/12/16 11:39
Please make possible to change channels amongst your favorites list.
Won’t open!
by Vvg123 on 2020/12/16 05:09
I have deleted and reinstalled several times, but this app will not open. What else can I try??
App constantly crashes
by Lglpadam on 2020/12/16 03:13
App will only play a few hours and then crashes. SiriusXM you need to fix your streaming app.
CarPlay integration is half baked
by WGRoper on 2020/12/15 23:15
The audio quality is so much better through the app instead of off the satellites. Using the app with CarPlay is a frustrating experience. Once it works, it sounds great but it’s easier just to use other streaming services instead.
Disappointing
by 8593829- on 2020/12/15 21:15
Compared to Spotify or Pandora, which never has problems loading or connecting to an ISP, this app is so clunky.
Refuses to connect
by Wvjyfbtrbhyvhschyvbtgbyfv on 2020/12/14 15:29

Can’t find password
by whadaya want on 2020/12/14 01:59
This is the sorriest app I’ve ever tried to use. The system doesn’t recognize my username or password and I have uses the only one I know I would have used. If I don’t get help tonight, I will delete the app and never use Sirius XM again!
Worthless
by 1Major1 on 2020/12/12 10:33
Can not sign even sign on. Waste of my time.
Latest version has iOS Bluetooth audio bug
by Miles267 on 2020/12/11 16:35
Current app version has Bluetooth bug with iOS where the app will disconnect from Bluetooth audio and cannot be rectified without a device reset. This can be verified by listening to other audio over BT whereas SiriusXM app BT audio connectivity crashes, with it becoming only app without audio.
Not working
by Adrlh on 2020/12/11 12:52
App doesn’t open, stuck on welcome screen
Love the content but the app is stale
by Mac B from Tennessee on 2020/12/10 19:22
I love how Pandora offers Siri Shortcuts for my favorite stations and HomePod integration. It would be lovely if the Sirius app would follow suit. The content is great, as it has always been, but I will probably use the app less and less if it’s not as convenient as Apple’s Music app or Sirius’s Pandora app.
By far the worst app I have ever used.
by IAmYungDaniel on 2020/12/10 19:17
It rarely works. Constantly pauses, skips forward, gets static, restart shows or will randomly closes. Would never recommend... save your money and unsubscribe from these frauds.
Finally ended my service
by YvneSpr on 2020/12/10 16:08
Since Howard changed his format and his show went to crap this app isn’t worth the price..
Can’t Even Login
by RPC21 on 2020/12/10 13:58
If you sign up for Sirius just do it for the car radio. The app doesn’t seem to have a great performance track record. Search the reviews and sort them by most recent. Disappointed in the app.
Love the service
by Bakk322 on 2020/12/10 09:02
SiriusXM app has improved greatly over the years! Only thing I want to see is Shortcuts support! Would make it so easy to say one thing to Siri and have the app launch and resume playing! That’s all I want!
Doesn’t work
by alebej on 2020/12/10 03:09
App says “Sorry, we’re having a technical problem” when I try to log in. My brand new wifi is working fine and not the issue. Really dissapointing.
Apple Watch Compatibility
by Branman1020 on 2020/12/09 21:45
Hello Guys, just wondering when you guys will roll out a compatible version for Apple watches. I enjoy listening to the Sirius XM app and notice there is no app compatibility for the Apple Watch. I had to carry my phone around to listen to the app. Hope it’s available for the Apple Watch soon! Love the improvements, keep up the good work on keeping them bugs out!💯⌚️🔓
Freeze!!!
by TrottJLee on 2020/12/09 18:05
This app freezes way too much. Too much going on; just keep it simple...
Getting Worse
by D(h)3 on 2020/12/09 16:12
It’s never worked for CarPlay, which I can deal with. But now, it constantly has issues just running on my phone. Terrible App
Never works
by the pinchegera on 2020/12/09 14:49
The app never works. Seriously why pay more when the app is totally useless. You also use to be able to skip to the beginning and that feature is no longer available. I’m in the software industry and I would fire every single software developer who created this app. They are incompetent.
Useless - will not accept login
by tms9055 on 2020/12/09 05:36
How am I supposed to use a free trial if this NEVER accepts login credentials?! I have changed my password, STILL doesn’t work!! Why pay for something that is completely unusable?!
Tab missing channel 148
by Recure on 2020/12/09 03:41
Radio classic channel 148 had a tab in lower left corner to listen to previous episodes. This tab is missing. Called SiriusXM today they were no help. Suggested I delete then reinstall app. Don’t think so with all problems with app I read. Will keep as is without tab to previous episodes. I guess same a streaming. Maybe gone different now.
Issues with app

the apple tv version is really horrible
by macsiah on 2020/12/07 17:43
it won’t turn off when i want it to. every time I choose a favorite it wants to delete it. the program info at the bottom of the screen often has nothing to do with program playing.
Can’t log back in
by brittney8818 on 2020/12/07 15:14
Ever since my cat stepped on my phone. I can’t log back in. I tried uninstalling and reinstalling restarting my phone. And I’m super annoyed.... other than that I love Sirius XM
Used to work great, no longer
by Badazzkzz on 2020/12/07 14:16
This app used to work great. Now it takes 1 - 5 minutes or longer to connect and start streaming, if it connects at all. All my other music (Pandora, Spotify, I Heart Radio) apps work fine, so it’s not a bad connection. This is from an up-to-date iPhone 8.
The worst
by Wa2761 on 2020/12/06 20:35
I love having Sirius XM, works great in the car. The app is terrible though, especially recently. There are days where it doesn’t work at all. Now it works but it NEVER shows the current song that’s playing, it’s always delayed.
The as is a hot piece of garbage
by thagreyjedi on 2020/12/06 19:50
If you can get past the login screen consider yourself lucky all I wanted to do was listen to some music but the app won’t let load after I put in my email and password.
Songs won’t update!
by Mjackerm on 2020/12/06 15:08
Doesn’t tell you what song is playing after the first song.
App Indicates Wrong Songs
by Kamboures on 2020/12/05 17:40
Looking at my favorite channels, the app indicates a song is playing. When I select the channel, a different song is playing. This is true 70% of the time. I contacted Sirius and they told to reinstall the app. I did this, and it didn’t fix the problem. I emailed them back and they didn’t reply.
App is good but where is Apple Watch support?
by Ecw73 on 2020/12/05 13:45
Bring this to Apple Watch so I can stream over cellular and I’d listen to it 2x more than I do.
Won’t open
by Racerguy88 on 2020/12/05 01:38

I enjoy listening to Sirius XM, however the app is sub par. I can’t get it to upload any information and have never been able to listen to anything on it.
Worst customer service! Worst user interface/experience design!
by Shavkat Metekov on 2020/12/04 20:48
I subscribed to listen to on a road trip because the car I had had the SiriusXM app. I listened to it the same day and that’s probably it. It charged 5 or so months at my initial sign up so i kind of forgot about it. Then I saw the 6th (or so) month charge and I remembered that I need to cancel it. It the weekend so tried to cancel online. I couldn’t login online because it didn’t recognize my email. Although I received emails from them, one of which clearly states that my email is my username. I said, maybe it’s a glitch tried to cancel through the app but it doesn’t have cancel option in the app (hm, you might think, why thy would be?) I couldn’t figure it out. I called the number it said to call back on weekdays/work hours. Over the weekend I forgot about it, got another charge and called in. Agent picked (not gonna mention names) who despite my clear explanation and experience of frustration tried to keep me subscribed by giving me “a big” discount of 75%! Wow! (Sarcasm). Then I explained that I was frustrated with how difficult it was to cancel my subscription online and through the app when the agent said, “oh, are you upset because you subscribed for our serviced and you forgot to cancel your subscription and you’re coming at us?” Lol I asked him, “are you stakeholder of this company?” He haven’t heard of that term. I went on to explain that there is no need to take it personally and I am just trying to cancel my subscription. I had to reason with him that all I need was to cancel, first time ever that I had to explain over and over again that I want to cancel my account. Anyways, I believe these make money out of people forgetting or delaying canceling their account. While there are so many free apps that offer the same if not more content! Don’t waste your money!
Unfortunate
by ;(64/, on 2020/12/04 18:44
Have been a paying customer for over 4 years and always paid on time. Yet they keep discounting my subscription without notice & leave me on hold for 45+ minutes to resolve the issue.
App doesn’t work
by kdoug1992 on 2020/12/04 16:31
I downloaded the app and the first time it let me sign in but wouldn’t load any stations. So I uninstalled and redownloaded the app and now it won’t even let me log in... I’m on a free trial right now and thank goodness I am because I will not be paying for this junk service.
So bad
by 5 star reviews all fake on 2020/12/04 10:58

College Kid Friendly: Cheap & Easy To Use!
by Dee Berry on 2020/12/02 02:27
The only reason I downloaded this was to listen to Channel 96: Kevin Hart! I was skeptical about paying for ANYTHING since everything is available elsewhere for free. It cost me $1.15 to start. Yeah......$1.15 which is about what I spend on gum, candy or one of those annoying fidget spinners. Totally worth it! Thanks Guys! Love you Kev!
Consistently degrading performance
by email gal on 2020/12/01 22:54
For what we spend on a subscription to Sirius radio, this app needs to be completely revamped. Every single week the issues get worse. It consistently drops during play, sometimes switching to a completely different channel. Or else it jumps from a current live session to an on-demand one. There’s no rhyme nor reason but it’s very frustrating that the app is so bad. When you consider that we spend more time listening on the app than we do on our car radios I would think they would figure out how to improve things.
You cancel Jason Ellis Show after 15 years of loyalty?
by localdan on 2020/12/01 22:07
I will never use siriusxm ever again after their recent firing of Jason Ellis and his staff. I have cancelled my subscription!
Canceled sub & deleted app.
by WULFKNIVES on 2020/12/01 21:21
With the recent departure of Jason Ellis, this company & app has zero use to me. The only reason I, and thousands of others listened, is because of Jason Ellis. The free podcast app, and a subscription to Tidal (for music) is cheaper, and better than this app! So long Sirius !!
Fired/canceled Jason Ellis
by LOVEYMcLOVERSON on 2020/12/01 19:56
So three months ago I subscribed to SiriusXM to listen to the Jason Ellis show and three months later he’s been canceled so I’m canceling my subscription
Please add HomePod support to the app
by Azgw on 2020/11/30 05:07
Please add HomePod support to the app. That would be awesome.
They cancelled Ellis
by golden420 on 2020/11/28 22:37
The only reason to have the service, and they cancel it. Glad I’ll be saving the money now. The Jason Ellis show is moving to podcast. If you’re a fan, you’ll now be able to access it for free.
SiriusXM app

App has never completely worked correctly
by Msauasen on 2020/11/26 17:37
Every release of this app has fix a problem but then breaks three other things. It’s never worked correctly with CarPlay, it’s never even worked correctly on iPhone natively. Lock screen can say it’s playing app says it’s not. I’m done with this lousy company, especially now that they’ve canceled Jason Ellis. At least I don’t have to endure garbage app updates anymore given the only reason I still use the service is for Ellis. At least he wasn’t a washed up old hack like the big name SiriusXM will continue to bet on as they loose more subs.
CarPlay in iOS12 still broken
by Smiffleblurf on 2018/10/10 05:01
I purchased an unlimited cellular Internet subscription to use this app in CarPlay instead of using my actual SiriusXM antenna on my car — THATS’s how much I like using this app. The last redesign was an amazing step forward. I dreaded updating to iOS 12 and sure enough the app on CarPlay wouldn’t load any of my favorites and recents. Even after this recent CarPlay fix update it didn’t fix much. Recents list still doesn’t load at all. When I still pull up my channel favorites it’ll either never load or have this long delay until it loads or I have to dangerously open the app on my phone to jumpstart it to load. I did notice once I was able to get the channels to load in favorites the recents tab finally loaded up, but still that’s an awkward bug. Just really bad loading issues in regards to displaying listed information in CarPlay all around. Hopefully a fix is coming soon so that I don’t have to use a one star review to report a bug, but the one star is well earned when the “App Support” link takes you to a FAQ site that doesn’t list this issue or a bug reporting option for this app. This app isn’t even listed on the Contact Us support options. This whole experience is adding misanthropy fuel.
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!
Awful, awful app

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

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.
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
What is playing?
by Padre Joe on 2018/01/03 21:42
Great app! I love listening to music on Sirius XM most mornings and it’s nice and convenient to use my iPad to do it. The only problem is that there seems to be a glitch in the display of what is currently playing (I’m not sure what it’s supposed to be called, so I hope that makes sense). When I select a station to listen to, the current song displays like normal. Sometimes the next song displays as well, but then the display seems to get “stuck” on that first or second song and doesn’t update the title, artist, or album cover until I change stations. Then it starts all over again. My Favorites list shows the correct title and artist, but the main display remains on that first or second song. That’s the one issue I’ve noticed. Otherwise, love the app!
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.
Resisted, but now regret waiting!
by Olde Poodle on 2018/02/28 03:20
I very much enjoy my automobile XM Radio on multiple vehicles, so did not want to spend more for an iPhone version, but having the XM/Sirius app in my pocket has proven to be even more enjoyable and I use it more than I do the car subscriptions. My favorite station, Classical Pops, is still available on the app even after it was removed from the radio! As a extra bonus, the Christmas music is still available now, and it is almost March. Further, the Fox News and Fox Business programs that I like can be restarted if I am late, or paused when I am interrupted. My only complaint is that the progress bar is inaccurate, so that it is difficult to know where one is in a news program, and the program titles do not keep up to the moment like the music titles do. All in all, I am very satisfied with Sirius/XM.
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!
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.
Serious downgrade with last update
by Vitosim on 2018/07/03 15:06
I have been a Sirius app user for years but the last app update completely ruined the experience. Since the update the tiles in my favorites consistently represent the wrong channels. For example, as I right now listen to The Lumineers on Alt Nation the title says Oingo Boingo is playing. Oingo Boingo is actually playing live on 1st Wave. I don’t even have 1st Wave in my favorites so I can’t explain that. This happens across all of My Favorites I’ve tried to delete my favorites hoping that deleting them and saving them again might fix this, but I can’t delete any of my favorites. When I deselect the star it just highlights itself again. I’ve deleted the app and reinstalled it again but nothing changes. Also, the entire new user interface is a pain to use when driving. I mostly listen during my commute. Sirius please go back to the old interface or at least give me that option. Keep in mind this isn’t a free service. I’m a paying customer but perhaps not for much longer.
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.
Reliable yet intrusive
by delmore dingleberry on 2018/06/26 05:08
Always on, always ready, variety, pay to play It has done exactly wat was intended to happen. I am addicted to it. Just like cell, apps, pc, internet, dna, all just another avenue for our government to intrude a bit deeper into our lives. Maybe all of this will end up on a positive note. Our govt is imploding and corruption is being exposed so deep into every branch of gov, incl local gov. I am all about it. Wat goes up will come down. Watching the bad actors in our gov get a dose of wat they been doing to everyone else. Once more of us realize that the majority of corrupt players in our govt not only have ability to watch our family through their cell phone, tv, pc, anything attached to internet or especially anything called smart.... Just the truth from one that knows

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.
Meh, save yourself some money and listen to iHeartRadio
by Not Sonya on 2019/04/25 23:44
I found a better variety of music on iheart radio with the added bonus of being able to search and listen for specific bands or podcasts. And iHeartRadio is free. So you have to listen to one commercial once in a great while... totally worth it. Also, the cancellation process is nasty. You can’t cancel within the app or even online. You actually have to call customer service. I was called Valerie, then Sonya (twice). Neither of which are remotely close to my name. Awkward! Then I was given the option to GET A DEAL. No thank you. I was put on hold, I erroneously thought to process the cancellation. WOULD YOU LIKE ANOTHER DEAL. Nope, still trying to cancel. Put on hold again, for cancellation? NOPE ANOTHER DEAL. I admit by then I lost my temper and said,” I. Just. Want. To. Cancel!” Then SiriusXM was able to! And they only called me Sonya one more time.
Xm radio is the way to go!
by wes from central NY on 2018/06/22 15:16
Never thought I’d pay for radio but...after listening to my local country stations for years, the amount of commercials have overcome the music. They also tend to repeat the same songs too much. I tried xm radio on free trial then became a subscriber. It’s great! My two favorite stations are the Highway & Prime country. The highway has an awesome morning show I love and they get the newest country songs before anyone else. Prime country plays the older country songs I grew up with from the 80s & 90s that the local stations just don’t anymore. Best parts, variety & NO commercials ever!! My opinion, totally worth it. And if u get the app for your phone, u can listen anytime anywhere u have good service. I highly recommend Xm. Their customer service is really good as well if u need assistance. Definelty worth it if u love music!! W.D. from N.Y.
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!
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.
Streaming service fail
by Samandmarinasdad on 2020/01/10 05:49
I cancelled this service on the first day of my free trial. The content is news services you can get for free on iHeartRadio and garbage music channels that feel like podcasts. I have seen their full boat service in peoples cars and this isn’t even close to that. Don’t let the price point trick you all this content can be found for free on a number of other platforms. In addition when you try to log into your account online, their website needs you to give it a car vin number or a radio ID number which you don’t have with a streaming account. To cancel I had to engage in an online chat and have it done manually. When I told the agent that I couldn’t log in and why he said he was aware of the problem. This service is a cash grab to prop up their now antiquated service. It wasn’t worth it to me for free, to pay for it is ridiculous. Between Apple Music and iHeartRadio radio you get all of this with better service and more content.
