Limited Skips
by dvelarde_0o0 on 2020/10/30 07:17
Why do I have a limited number of skips for a service that I pay for!? Imagine if Netflix didn't let you skip around on their content. I might consider cancelling my subscription if I can't use it the way I want to use it.
This app is good, but...
by jakeswenson on 2020/10/29 17:56
This app works well and the design is really nice. Considering how often most users probably listen in the car, it would be great to have Siri commands for tuning to particular channels within the app. That would truly take this app from good to great. A widget for the iOS 14 Home Screen with one-click station favorites would also be amazing! Hoping to see these two things implemented soon
Bad
by boybop on 2020/10/28 19:57
Actually could not get me through the sign in screen and when I clicked on the help button here on the App Store that led me to it saying you need a qualifying subscription are you kidding me this is ridiculous
Wont open 9 out of 10 times

This app is trash lately
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.
Lacks basic media player features
by dswena on 2020/10/27 23:53
My primary issue with this app is that lacks the ability to Rewind and Fast forward. My in car SiriusXM radio supports these features but apparently not the phone app. Only Pause and Go Live. This provides for a frustrating user experience.
Glitchy
by jeffthedrunk on 2020/10/27 20:42
I wish the app would keep my place and stop having issues when playing shows. I get error messages far to often and close then open the app and it looses my place constantly.

Siriusxm
by Gizmo8619 on 2020/10/24 13:40
App overall is pretty good but I have an iPhone Xr and it will not go to landscape mode. I have tried everything. Fix this and I update rating. Other than that I have had no problems
Runs two minutes behind from live XM
by hmt3 on 2020/10/24 03:21
I like the ability to use the service outside the car; as an essential worker, this is very convenient. But I have to keep it on streaming when I get back in the car, because it is about 2 minutes behind the live feed on the radio. I do have to reload it after about 90 minutes, but that is a minor annoyance. Please add the app to the Apple Watch.
Apple Watch
by lauren9814 on 2020/10/24 03:02
Please add an Apple Watch app!!
Okay, when it works.
by Oyster Bay Billy on 2020/10/23 05:53
This is a review of the app, not SiriusXM as a service. The app is buggy. Half the time it doesn’t start up but just goes into about-to-open mode. And when it does open, it is not an I tuitve user interface. The app is useless most of the time.
What customer support
by Moocowguy 69 on 2020/10/23 00:53
All they do is sell you on re-subscribe
Love the app
by ya boy lotty on 2020/10/22 16:09
I wish there was a way we could save shows to listen to later though or maybe listen to your favorite shows whenever you feel like it
Works most of the time
by tairten5k on 2020/10/20 20:47
Only gotten it to work once since the update! Seems like it only works every other update
Love the app, but...
by Kicker0927 on 2020/10/20 14:14
Love the app. I’d give it 5 stars IF they offered Apple Watch support. Why does Pandora have a fantastic Watch app, but SiriusXM doesn’t? SiriusXM owns Pandora.
Amazing.. but

Will the Christmas channels be all year or just until after Christmas?
oh i hate this lame app, and lame company
by procul on 2020/10/19 17:30
Totally lame channel selection - classical music has been around for how many centuries and how many styles and we have two choices: Lame and Lamer? And one Jazz channel? But we need 802 rock pop and rap channels? And 100 idiots talking about yesterday’s basketball game 24/7. Totally lame crashing slow app that needs constant updating and gets worse all the time, incompetent programmers (picture of John Hurt the British actor for a Mississippi John Hurt blues song), and all the $$$$$ we pay, just to listen to the radio. The only good thing is access to the Pandora stations. And they’re pretty lame too.
App does not work!
by ChaosIQ on 2020/10/19 00:08
Junk, not working, annoying prompting.
Incredibly annoying.
by Trumpster81 on 2020/10/18 16:15
I was driving in a 5Ge area, 5 bars..(a few minutes ago) and the app says no connection. Are they trying to cause accidents?!?! My iPhone didn’t lose connection at all, the pandora stations and live stations are just terribly programmed. Also at the border of IL/IN near Terre Haute, EVERY SINGLE TIME in that area, everything blanks out, I’m forced to reboot my iPhone completely. I just got a new SIM card so I’m good there. This app stinks. It needs a massive overhaul.
BIG ISSUE
by Spyderfxst on 2020/10/17 23:45
Since the last update this app is horrible. It drops out will cellular and then says “ internet lost” Then I have to turn off my phone to reboot the app. This is very annoying and needs looked at.

Comedy of errors
by TJ32157 on 2020/10/15 23:48
I’ve had Sirius for a while now, but over the past few weeks/months they just can’t get it together. One time my car radio just stopped working for days and they said I changed my receiver, which I didn’t. A few days later I was told the same thing and now I can’t even login to my account because my username apparently no longer exists. All of this while having a current membership. Makes no sense.
Ehhh
by shals3 on 2020/10/15 17:36
You’re app is ok but it buffers too much and then it freezes my tv and I have to reset it. Why I pay nearly $30 a month for this is beyond me. I enjoy having the luxury of music on my tv but for the price I wish I wouldn’t have so many issues!
Casting to Google Devices in iOS 14
by CraigApps2e on 2020/10/14 16:10
When are you going to fix casting to Google devices from Apple devices running iOS 14? As I understand it the app has to request permission to access the local network

They have locked me into a subscription.
by fhvcghnj on 2020/10/11 13:52
I tried canceling my subscription but it is required to have a radio or account number. I was never given either of these. I’ve tried customer service but no one has helped. I need this fixed. Don’t subscribe to this service if you have intentions to cancel because they will make it hell.
Bad release

Useless
by I prefer B8ZS on 2020/10/11 11:15
Cannot sign in. And yes, I verified my username and password three times. The usual customer support is to delete the app and reinstall. Lather rinse and repeat. So, when that happens, how is it user error?
CarPlay still buggy
by BarrDDS on 2020/10/10 16:03
CarPlay conversion of the app is essentially functionless.... favorites and stations don’t load . Have to directly use phone. Hopefully will be dealt with in future updates.
Terrible still
by volumedepletion on 2020/10/09 15:47
Even with the latest version of the app and the latest iPhone, this app is still terrible. Even when you have strong signal it still cuts out on programs even if you've download them to your iPhone. Now it's constantly giving you messages about having a message in your notifications folder and there's nothing there. And it's still almost impossible to listen to anything on demand without the program getting interrupted and restarting. Still terrible. Update: 2/28/17 Still terrible. Even with a brand new iPhone and new phone provider. Constantly disconnecting from shows. Makes me not even want to use it. Update: 2/2/20 Was good and back to terrible. The app itself is fine but the Bluetooth connection is always intermittent no matter what the speaker. For example, if you play any other app from Apple Music to CNN they all connect fine and stay connected. Please fix this. When music cuts in and out it inevitably leads to leaving the app and playing music from somewhere else. For such a high monthly cost it should work flawlessly and it doesn’t. Worked great then now it cuts in and out while in Airplay. Again, Apple Music works fine with no interruptions so it’s this stupid app!! PLEASE stop fixing it then breaking it. It costs too much money Update 10/9/20 New update causes glitches. Unbelievable how bad this app has constantly been. Please fire everyone on it and start fresh.

Audio Stops, Eliminate Skip Restrictions, Foward/Rewind Feature Needed.
by Snow Leopard User on 2020/10/07 18:40
Hopefully, SiriusXM reviews these ratings, and aggressively communicates corrective actions for their app development team. It is annoying when listening to programming and the audio silenced, while the content continues to play. Currently, forcing the app to close and reopening it has been a solution to get the audio playing again. However, there are instances where the programming jumps to the live feed when reopened, thus losing the content I was enjoying. Additionally, please eliminate the skip restrictions for live content, and incorporate a forward/rewind feature for live content.
Hands down one of the worst streaming apps
by Dr00Skee on 2020/10/07 17:26
This app is so clunky and useless. I have to change my password every other month because they have incredibly difficult password requirements. Then, half the time the app won’t load. This week particularly I have not been able to load in. Just enter my info and the loading screen spins. Can’t wait until Howard retires and I can cancel because all of the content has declined severely over the last 10 years.
App does not work.

by BlasterMaster47 on 2020/10/07 04:29
No matter what I do the app will not log me in. Once I enter my email and password nothing happens accept the Sirius loading screen. Bug fix and the ability to log in would solve the issue and my negative review. PS brand new subscriber to the service too. Not starting off too well. Hopefully no one else has this problem. Current or new!

SiriusXM Siri Support? Mac OS?
by IntheFairway on 2020/10/04 19:37
With the introduction of iOS 14 where is the Siri support with SiriusXM? Literally almost every other music audio company has implemented it. Spotify, YouTube music, and even Pandora which SiriusXM now owns! With Mac OS Catalina introducing catalyst apps, here’s hoping they port the iPad SiriusXM app to the Mac because airplay 2 would be a great feature from the dock instead of the web browser. While we are at it how about implement a new Apple CarPlay recent preset based logo station name on the first screen shown after launching the SiriusXm app! Apple even introduced this in there new iOS 13 Carplay Radio section Please prepare the app for iOS 14 Siri integration, HomePod, and CarPlay to support the growth metrics the shareholders will be watching SiriusXM to provide! Thank you

XM Radio Stinks
by Valdito on 2020/10/01 23:35
Siriusxm need better developers and more channels if XM want their customers to stay. App keeps on crashing and buffing mostly all the time. Even if you uninstall and than install the app it won’t fix its self.
Couldn’t connect my new Tesla
by dmgias on 2020/10/01 21:42
I spent 4 hours today trying to get SiriusXM to work in my new Tesla Y. I cancelled my subscription. We had Sirius subscription in my last 2 cars and I will miss having it in my new one. In the previous cars there was an icon for you to click on to have it work. When I contacted your customer service the people were very nice. In a couple of the calls they wanted radio ID or ESN number. TESLA wasn’t able to provide that to me. One person sent me a text with directions and that didn’t work. I couldn’t call her back or have her call me. Do you still call it Customer Service?

Endlessly Buggy
by antm22 on 2020/09/30 19:38
I don’t know why anyone would give this app more than 2 stars. The dev and testing teams have horrible attention to detail. It crashes randomly, it’s often slow to load favorites and recents, AirPlay 2 support is buggy and the CarPlay integration was only done to check the box and say the app “works” with CarPlay. They update it roughly once a month and the most obvious things never get fixed. I’ve sent them feedback thru the app with screenshots and nothing gets addressed. I’ve been a customer for well over 10 years. When my subscription is up in a few months, I will likely not renew. I do enjoy the content SiriusXM offers but the app is needlessly frustrating.
App keeps freezing or dropping
by email gal on 2020/09/30 17:25
In the last month, this app has been so frustrating. It either freezes in place and you have to change the channel to restart it or it drops completely and goes to a completely different channel. It works so sporadically that I’m almost at the point where I don’t want to keep trying.
Free trial hassle
by Skylar C. on 2020/09/30 01:47
I spent over 50 minutes on chat trying to talk their customer service into cancelling my account while they (very slowly) tried to give me their sales pitch. It took the CSR 5 minutes to respond to each of my replies. Don’t fall for it and give them your credit card details. Oh and you can’t cancel online because logging in requires your account number (which they do not provide.)

by coledog188 on 2020/09/29 18:55
But this app is such sh*t that I had to. Every time I play a show from the same day but a prior time, one segment plays and then it skips to “live”. Most of XM’s content is crap so I like to listen to specific shows that air at specific times. Just stop being “cute” and make a freaking working app!! Hire a 10 year old and you will automatically have a better product than your 40 year midlife crisis coder has put together.

Update late Sept 2020 Getting even worse. Only garbled sound now coming from HomePod Developers - are you even paying attention at all Update Sept 2020 Now have more steaming issues. iPhone X keeps cutting out connecting to JBL Bluetooth speaker this weekend. Also getting static going from iPad Pro to HomePod. Seriously, static, like a analog radio Listen all day, multiple channels, on my iPad sending it to my Home Pod. At various points will just stop sending signal to the Home Pod. I switch over to Apple Music and it works fine. Use Safari to play, works fine. Use local music, works fine. Just the Sirius app. Restart the iPad, starts working again. Please fix

Apple Watch Compatible???
by OULitig8r on 2020/09/27 13:48
The service is fine. However, it’s hard to believe that there is no Apple Watch compatibility! I go to the gym daily. It would be great to stream XM radio from my watch to my Jabra ear pods. I can with other services...Apple Music for example. I dont want to pay for two services. Right now, Apple Music has me covered in the car, at home, at the office, and at the gym. Please make this app compatible with Apple Watch!

Will not load past logo
by Bv0312 on 2020/09/23 12:45
The app is broken again,too much inconsistency. As of now it is not usable at all will not go past the serious logo screen and then says no connection. When it does work it stops with full signal or great Wi-Fi connections. These issues have been sporadic over the last several months, it gets fixed and then happens again with another update.
Need watch app PLEASE!!!!!
by John Bauerlein on 2020/09/22 20:08
I purchased an Apple Watch w/cellular access so I would not have to carry my iPhone when I listen to music on my daily walks. I also like to listen to SiriusXM radio while on my walks, which necessitates carrying my iPhone and negates the ability to use the cellular feature on my watch. Please create a watch app so I can leave my iPhone at home when I listen to SiriusXM on my walks.
Really hard to cancel
by wee1895 on 2020/09/22 12:24
Do not get this unless you have the utmost patience when it comes to dealing with your account. The online support is as good as useless. I never got the app to work in my car. Then when I went to cancel because I was being charged 23$ per month I had to spend 15 minutes on the phone. Once you get past the teleprompter and start talking to a human they try there hardest to keep your account active. Watch out.

Friggin terrible
by defjoe72 on 2020/09/18 19:24
I write this based on how great Sirius, themselves, keep saying about the app. Howard Stern is always beaming about it. But it’s terrible. It’s buggy as hell. It gets stuck displaying the same song for hours. Constantly have to close it and open it for it to be current. Loses favorites all the time. No connection constantly. For how great they like to say it is... nope. It’s not like I live in the woods. Orlando Florida. Strong cell signal all the time. Bad bad bad app.
Bad for almost 10 years now
by Matt_Box on 2020/09/18 17:28
Randomly stops, downloads disappear, forgets favorites, pretty much what everybody else has been saying. You would think they would have had all the bugs worked out by now.

I have an existing account with online access and I can’t ever get the app to recognize my information. I login to my account on the internet site just fine, but the app never recognizes me. I’d give more stars if I could get it to work. Love the radio service!
Great Mobile App/ Terrible CarPlay App
by xwigginsx on 2020/09/16 00:34
Works awesome on my devices , however Apple CarPlay leaves a lot to be desired. I know the idea is that it is hands free and voice activated , however the SXM app doesn’t support either. Needs a complete re work.
App update is broken
by Jim165 on 2020/09/15 14:34
Will not recognize login and forgot password function won’t recognize email address...
Recent update-BAD!!!
by Rogue0125 on 2020/09/14 17:28
I listen to the app all the time when riding my motorcycle. Since the latest update, got logged out and it will not log back in. It stays on the logo and never logs in. I let it go for over 30 mins and still didn’t log in. Deleted and reinstalled the app and still nothing!! PLEASE RESOLVE THIS ASAP!! Or I will cancel my subscription!!
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.
Great App
by TaxisLatka on 2019/02/08 22:43
NEW REVIEW (Feb. 2019): Another quick fix to the annoying download issue. Great response. App is back to working great. OLD REVIEW (Feb. 2019): The new update is awful. It’s now back to the same issue of downloaded shows not opening from the last place they were being listened to. You can listen to a downloaded show for two hours and then when you go back to the app instead of it saving your place and continuing playing where it was, it goes back to some previous point at the very beginning of the show. Very annoying and it’s happened before. Thought they had it worked out but now this issue is back. Please fix as soon as possible as this makes the app almost unusable. Wish I never updated. Should’ve stuck with the last version that actually worked. Very angry. OLD REVIEW (2018): Love the updated app. It’s the best. The addition of video is pretty cool, but the Stern Shows are loaded fast (usually same afternoon). Had an issue with holding place of downloaded shows, but it appears to have been resolved. A+
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.
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.
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.
New features but lacking polish
by drew_petricc on 2018/11/08 20:01
Lots of glitz and glamour over the new features, & call me crazy, but it actually seems *harder* to just get to my downloaded shows now... Also, if there’s something that looks cool on my home page, better remember it or keep swiping b/c it just scrolls away after a few seconds... sure it’s good to show the different options, but annoying. It also seems to have obfuscated which is actually a new show, or even to just get to what is actually playing live on 100 now. For all its faults, this was not an issue with the old version. All this complaining aside I do like the new app and addition of video clips etc. I’m just looking forward to some revision with usability/ease of use in mind—so keep it up dev team!! Thanks for a great app, I will change to five stars when updated! I do like the more streamlined way to manage/delete downloads and the addition of forward and backward skipping by a few seconds (which was sorely needed). So it’s great & I love it—that’s why I’m saying it just needs a few revisions to be the best in my opinion, thanks.
The more I spend time with this..
by Phantom2089 on 2018/05/14 23:02
The more I’m regretting my app update for it. Why would you fix something that was not broken?? I really hate this new update. There are more cons to point out than pro’s on this! Con: -No mix customizations (BIG NO!) -No info description on each channel and shows within that channel, nor do they provide twitter/phone number to call in the radio channel! -adding favorites just doesn’t work. -backtracking only goes so much as 3 hrs instead of 6 hrs. -there’s no schedule for when upcoming shows are going to broadcast. -channel freezes and locks if your app ended up foreclosing on you or you foreclose the app. (I was always able to resume where I left off EVEN when I foreclosed it, now it makes me lose my place wherever I’m in. REALLY FRUSTRATING ESPECIALLY WITH GRATEFUL DEAD CONCERTS!!!!) -no bright/dim light interface option, I hate how bright this design is now, especially late at night. -takes longer to connect to audio when it used to not on data connection. Pro’s: -Video on-demand for Howard Stern -audio scroller is a bit easier when you want to rewind or fast forward a lot. And that’s all the pros that’s on this app. You have got some MAJOR EDITING to BRING BACK some of the old WITH the new! I feel like my subscription has just plummeted to a mediocre service, I’m really debating on cancelling if they don’t bring back and improve their main qualities of their app. BRING BACK THE OLD APP!!!
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
Great new redesign, some suggestions
by Nelson Ned on 2019/03/30 19:42
UPDATE: Happy that you quickly fixed the landscape iPad issue. CarPlay app is kind of a hot mess. When it works it shows there is tremendous potential for it. But alas, it doesn’t always work. Sometimes it just refuses to stream or update or show anything really. Then there is the sporadic but extremely annoying display of channels and favorites. Often it will only show the first couple of pages of channels and favorites. You can’t see any of the higher numbered channels or favorites that are on the later pages. This is super annoying and I really wish this would be fixed. Finally, Apple Watch app with stand-alone playback on cellular. Please, please, please with a cherry on top. OLD REVIEW: I’m very happy with the performance and new design. It has been working great. Hopefully you bring landscape mode to iPad as the newest version doesn’t have it. Also I really hope you consider an Apple Watch compatible app. Nothing would compliment my cellular Apple Watch more than being able to stream Sirius XM on it. Your UI wouldn’t have to be that complicated. A simple way to select stations and pause, play, volume, favorites, etc. Come on guys and gals. I know you can make this happen. Also I’m having an issue with my favorites not showing all the stations on all devices. My iPhone seems to show them all but my iPad does not. Hopefully the synchronization of favorite stations across all devices can be fixed.
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!
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???
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???
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.
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!
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.

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.
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.
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.
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! :-)
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.
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
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
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.
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.
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
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!

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.
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.
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.
Terrible
by Keeper007 on 2018/02/02 00:37
Unfortunately, this app (for me at least) is riddle with problems. It actually does ok if you are listening to something live. But becomes very problematic when trying to go back and listen to past programs. It constantly says “Trying to recover audio”. When trying to skip past the commercial, it will skip all the way to the live portion of the channel. Then you have to start the show back over and TRY and skip forward to where you left off. If there was another option than using this app, I would totally be all for it. Unfortunately if you want to listen outside of the car or play past shows, be prepared for a potential headache. This company is way to main stream to have an app that is this terrible. Just my opinion and I hope the finally update the app to something that worked more often than it doesn’t. Especially if you are going back to listen to past show.
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.
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!

Limited Skips
by dvelarde_0o0 on 2020/10/30 07:17
Why do I have a limited number of skips for a service that I pay for!? Imagine if Netflix didn't let you skip around on their content. I might consider cancelling my subscription if I can't use it the way I want to use it.
This app is good, but...
by jakeswenson on 2020/10/29 17:56
This app works well and the design is really nice. Considering how often most users probably listen in the car, it would be great to have Siri commands for tuning to particular channels within the app. That would truly take this app from good to great. A widget for the iOS 14 Home Screen with one-click station favorites would also be amazing! Hoping to see these two things implemented soon
Bad
by boybop on 2020/10/28 19:57
Actually could not get me through the sign in screen and when I clicked on the help button here on the App Store that led me to it saying you need a qualifying subscription are you kidding me this is ridiculous
Wont open 9 out of 10 times
by Khabibulin04 on 2020/10/28 18:13
This app is trash lately
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.
Lacks basic media player features
by dswena on 2020/10/27 23:53
My primary issue with this app is that lacks the ability to Rewind and Fast forward. My in car SiriusXM radio supports these features but apparently not the phone app. Only Pause and Go Live. This provides for a frustrating user experience.
Glitchy
by jeffthedrunk on 2020/10/27 20:42
I wish the app would keep my place and stop having issues when playing shows. I get error messages far to often and close then open the app and it looses my place constantly.

Siriusxm
by Gizmo8619 on 2020/10/24 13:40
App overall is pretty good but I have an iPhone Xr and it will not go to landscape mode. I have tried everything. Fix this and I update rating. Other than that I have had no problems
Runs two minutes behind from live XM
by hmt3 on 2020/10/24 03:21
I like the ability to use the service outside the car; as an essential worker, this is very convenient. But I have to keep it on streaming when I get back in the car, because it is about 2 minutes behind the live feed on the radio. I do have to reload it after about 90 minutes, but that is a minor annoyance. Please add the app to the Apple Watch.
Apple Watch
by lauren9814 on 2020/10/24 03:02
Please add an Apple Watch app!!
Okay, when it works.
by Oyster Bay Billy on 2020/10/23 05:53
This is a review of the app, not SiriusXM as a service. The app is buggy. Half the time it doesn’t start up but just goes into about-to-open mode. And when it does open, it is not an I tuitve user interface. The app is useless most of the time.
What customer support
by Moocowguy 69 on 2020/10/23 00:53
All they do is sell you on re-subscribe
Love the app
by ya boy lotty on 2020/10/22 16:09
I wish there was a way we could save shows to listen to later though or maybe listen to your favorite shows whenever you feel like it
Works most of the time
by tairten5k on 2020/10/20 20:47
Only gotten it to work once since the update! Seems like it only works every other update
Love the app, but...
by Kicker0927 on 2020/10/20 14:14
Love the app. I’d give it 5 stars IF they offered Apple Watch support. Why does Pandora have a fantastic Watch app, but SiriusXM doesn’t? SiriusXM owns Pandora.
Amazing.. but
by awesomekeys24 on 2020/10/19 21:04
Will the Christmas channels be all year or just until after Christmas?
oh i hate this lame app, and lame company
by procul on 2020/10/19 17:30
Totally lame channel selection - classical music has been around for how many centuries and how many styles and we have two choices: Lame and Lamer? And one Jazz channel? But we need 802 rock pop and rap channels? And 100 idiots talking about yesterday’s basketball game 24/7. Totally lame crashing slow app that needs constant updating and gets worse all the time, incompetent programmers (picture of John Hurt the British actor for a Mississippi John Hurt blues song), and all the $$$$$ we pay, just to listen to the radio. The only good thing is access to the Pandora stations. And they’re pretty lame too.
App does not work!
by ChaosIQ on 2020/10/19 00:08
Junk, not working, annoying prompting.
Incredibly annoying.
by Trumpster81 on 2020/10/18 16:15
I was driving in a 5Ge area, 5 bars..(a few minutes ago) and the app says no connection. Are they trying to cause accidents?!?! My iPhone didn’t lose connection at all, the pandora stations and live stations are just terribly programmed. Also at the border of IL/IN near Terre Haute, EVERY SINGLE TIME in that area, everything blanks out, I’m forced to reboot my iPhone completely. I just got a new SIM card so I’m good there. This app stinks. It needs a massive overhaul.
BIG ISSUE
by Spyderfxst on 2020/10/17 23:45
Since the last update this app is horrible. It drops out will cellular and then says “ internet lost” Then I have to turn off my phone to reboot the app. This is very annoying and needs looked at.

Comedy of errors
by TJ32157 on 2020/10/15 23:48
I’ve had Sirius for a while now, but over the past few weeks/months they just can’t get it together. One time my car radio just stopped working for days and they said I changed my receiver, which I didn’t. A few days later I was told the same thing and now I can’t even login to my account because my username apparently no longer exists. All of this while having a current membership. Makes no sense.
Ehhh
by shals3 on 2020/10/15 17:36
You’re app is ok but it buffers too much and then it freezes my tv and I have to reset it. Why I pay nearly $30 a month for this is beyond me. I enjoy having the luxury of music on my tv but for the price I wish I wouldn’t have so many issues!
Casting to Google Devices in iOS 14
by CraigApps2e on 2020/10/14 16:10
When are you going to fix casting to Google devices from Apple devices running iOS 14? As I understand it the app has to request permission to access the local network
Only one problem

Great app, only problem is that it only allows a 60 minute sleep timer I usually like to set two or three hours.

App not working

After app update it wont let me login and crashes...
They have locked me into a subscription.
by fhvcghnj on 2020/10/11 13:52
I tried canceling my subscription but it is required to have a radio or account number. I was never given either of these. I’ve tried customer service but no one has helped. I need this fixed. Don’t subscribe to this service if you have intentions to cancel because they will make it hell.
Bad release

Useless
by I prefer B8ZS on 2020/10/11 11:15
Cannot sign in. And yes, I verified my username and password three times. The usual customer support is to delete the app and reinstall. Lather rinse and repeat. So, when that happens, how is it user error?
CarPlay still buggy
by BarrDDS on 2020/10/10 16:03
CarPlay conversion of the app is essentially functionless.... favorites and stations don’t load . Have to directly use phone. Hopefully will be dealt with in future updates.
Terrible still
by volumedepletion on 2020/10/09 15:47
Even with the latest version of the app and the latest iPhone, this app is still terrible. Even when you have strong signal it still cuts out on programs even if you've download them to your iPhone. Now it's constantly giving you messages about having a message in your notifications folder and there's nothing there. And it's still almost impossible to listen to anything on demand without the program getting interrupted and restarting. Still terrible. Update: 2/28/17 Still terrible. Even with a brand new iPhone and new phone provider. Constantly disconnecting from shows. Makes me not even want to use it. Update: 2/2/20 Was good and back to terrible. The app itself is fine but the Bluetooth connection is always intermittent no matter what the speaker. For example, if you play any other app from Apple Music to CNN they all connect fine and stay connected. Please fix this. When music cuts in and out it inevitably leads to leaving the app and playing music from somewhere else. For such a high monthly cost it should work flawlessly and it doesn’t. Worked great then now it cuts in and out while in Airplay. Again, Apple Music works fine with no interruptions so it’s this stupid app!! PLEASE stop fixing it then breaking it. It costs too much money Update 10/9/20 New update causes glitches. Unbelievable how bad this app has constantly been. Please fire everyone on it and start fresh.

CarPlay is still broken
by Rogifan on 2020/10/09 03:01
I would give this app 5 stars but CarPlay is still a complete broken mess. Sometimes stations don’t launch at all, recents and favorites don’t show up. Very frustrating. Please fix now.

Audio Stops, Eliminate Skip Restrictions, Foward/Rewind Feature Needed.
by Snow Leopard User on 2020/10/07 18:40
Hopefully, SiriusXM reviews these ratings, and aggressively communicates corrective actions for their app development team. It is annoying when listening to programming and the audio silenced, while the content continues to play. Currently, forcing the app to close and reopening it has been a solution to get the audio playing again. However, there are instances where the programming jumps to the live feed when reopened, thus losing the content I was enjoying. Additionally, please eliminate the skip restrictions for live content, and incorporate a forward/rewind feature for live content.
Hands down one of the worst streaming apps
by Dr00Skee on 2020/10/07 17:26
This app is so clunky and useless. I have to change my password every other month because they have incredibly difficult password requirements. Then, half the time the app won’t load. This week particularly I have not been able to load in. Just enter my info and the loading screen spins. Can’t wait until Howard retires and I can cancel because all of the content has declined severely over the last 10 years.
App does not work.

App won’t log in
by BlasterMaster47 on 2020/10/07 04:29
No matter what I do the app will not log me in. Once I enter my email and password nothing happens accept the Sirius loading screen. Bug fix and the ability to log in would solve the issue and my negative review. PS brand new subscriber to the service too. Not starting off too well. Hopefully no one else has this problem. Current or new!

SiriusXM Siri Support? Mac OS?
by IntheFairway on 2020/10/04 19:37
With the introduction of iOS 14 where is the Siri support with SiriusXM? Literally almost every other music audio company has implemented it. Spotify, YouTube music, and even Pandora which SiriusXM now owns! With Mac OS Catalina introducing catalyst apps, here’s hoping they port the iPad SiriusXM app to the Mac because airplay 2 would be a great feature from the dock instead of the web browser. While we are at it how about implement a new Apple CarPlay recent preset based logo station name on the first screen shown after launching the SiriusXm app! Apple even introduced this in there new iOS 13 Carplay Radio section Please prepare the app for iOS 14 Siri integration, HomePod, and CarPlay to support the growth metrics the shareholders will be watching SiriusXM to provide! Thank you

XM Radio Stinks
by Valdito on 2020/10/01 23:35
Siriusxm need better developers and more channels if XM want their customers to stay. App keeps on crashing and buffing mostly all the time. Even if you uninstall and than install the app it won’t fix its self.
Couldn’t connect my new Tesla
by dmgias on 2020/10/01 21:42
I spent 4 hours today trying to get SiriusXM to work in my new Tesla Y. I cancelled my subscription. We had Sirius subscription in my last 2 cars and I will miss having it in my new one. In the previous cars there was an icon for you to click on to have it work. When I contacted your customer service the people were very nice. In a couple of the calls they wanted radio ID or ESN number. TESLA wasn’t able to provide that to me. One person sent me a text with directions and that didn’t work. I couldn’t call her back or have her call me. Do you still call it Customer Service?

Endlessly Buggy
by antm22 on 2020/09/30 19:38
I don’t know why anyone would give this app more than 2 stars. The dev and testing teams have horrible attention to detail. It crashes randomly, it’s often slow to load favorites and recents, AirPlay 2 support is buggy and the CarPlay integration was only done to check the box and say the app “works” with CarPlay. They update it roughly once a month and the most obvious things never get fixed. I’ve sent them feedback thru the app with screenshots and nothing gets addressed. I’ve been a customer for well over 10 years. When my subscription is up in a few months, I will likely not renew. I do enjoy the content SiriusXM offers but the app is needlessly frustrating.
App keeps freezing or dropping
by email gal on 2020/09/30 17:25
In the last month, this app has been so frustrating. It either freezes in place and you have to change the channel to restart it or it drops completely and goes to a completely different channel. It works so sporadically that I’m almost at the point where I don’t want to keep trying.
Free trial hassle
by Skylar C. on 2020/09/30 01:47
I spent over 50 minutes on chat trying to talk their customer service into cancelling my account while they (very slowly) tried to give me their sales pitch. It took the CSR 5 minutes to respond to each of my replies. Don’t fall for it and give them your credit card details. Oh and you can’t cancel online because logging in requires your account number (which they do not provide.)

by coledog188 on 2020/09/29 18:55
But this app is such sh*t that I had to. Every time I play a show from the same day but a prior time, one segment plays and then it skips to “live”. Most of XM’s content is crap so I like to listen to specific shows that air at specific times. Just stop being “cute” and make a freaking working app!! Hire a 10 year old and you will automatically have a better product than your 40 year midlife crisis coder has put together.

Update late Sept 2020 Getting even worse. Only garbled sound now coming from HomePod Developers - are you even paying attention at all Update Sept 2020 Now have more steaming issues. iPhone X keeps cutting out connecting to JBL Bluetooth speaker this weekend. Also getting static going from iPad Pro to HomePod. Seriously, static, like a analog radio Listen all day, multiple channels, on my iPad sending it to my Home Pod. At various points will just stop sending signal to the Home Pod. I switch over to Apple Music and it works fine. Use Safari to play, works fine. Use local music, works fine. Just the Sirius app. Restart the iPad, starts working again. Please fix

Apple Watch Compatible???
by OULitig8r on 2020/09/27 13:48
The service is fine. However, it’s hard to believe that there is no Apple Watch compatibility! I go to the gym daily. It would be great to stream XM radio from my watch to my Jabra ear pods. I can with other services...Apple Music for example. I dont want to pay for two services. Right now, Apple Music has me covered in the car, at home, at the office, and at the gym. Please make this app compatible with Apple Watch!

Will not load past logo
by Bv0312 on 2020/09/23 12:45
The app is broken again,too much inconsistency. As of now it is not usable at all will not go past the serious logo screen and then says no connection. When it does work it stops with full signal or great Wi-Fi connections. These issues have been sporadic over the last several months, it gets fixed and then happens again with another update.
Need watch app PLEASE!!!!!
by John Bauerlein on 2020/09/22 20:08
I purchased an Apple Watch w/cellular access so I would not have to carry my iPhone when I listen to music on my daily walks. I also like to listen to SiriusXM radio while on my walks, which necessitates carrying my iPhone and negates the ability to use the cellular feature on my watch. Please create a watch app so I can leave my iPhone at home when I listen to SiriusXM on my walks.
Really hard to cancel
by wee1895 on 2020/09/22 12:24
Do not get this unless you have the utmost patience when it comes to dealing with your account. The online support is as good as useless. I never got the app to work in my car. Then when I went to cancel because I was being charged 23$ per month I had to spend 15 minutes on the phone. Once you get past the teleprompter and start talking to a human they try there hardest to keep your account active. Watch out.

Friggin terrible
by defjoe72 on 2020/09/18 19:24
I write this based on how great Sirius, themselves, keep saying about the app. Howard Stern is always beaming about it. But it’s terrible. It’s buggy as hell. It gets stuck displaying the same song for hours. Constantly have to close it and open it for it to be current. Loses favorites all the time. No connection constantly. For how great they like to say it is... nope. It’s not like I live in the woods. Orlando Florida. Strong cell signal all the time. Bad bad bad app.
Bad for almost 10 years now
by Matt_Box on 2020/09/18 17:28
Randomly stops, downloads disappear, forgets favorites, pretty much what everybody else has been saying. You would think they would have had all the bugs worked out by now.

Great Mobile App/ Terrible CarPlay App
by xwigginsx on 2020/09/16 00:34
Works awesome on my devices , however Apple CarPlay leaves a lot to be desired. I know the idea is that it is hands free and voice activated , however the SXM app doesn’t support either. Needs a complete re work.

I listen to the app all the time when riding my motorcycle. Since the latest update, got logged out and it will not log back in. It stays on the logo and never logs in. I let it go for over 30 mins and still didn’t log in. Deleted and reinstalled the app and still nothing!! PLEASE RESOLVE THIS ASAP!! Or I will cancel my subscription!!
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.
Great App
by TaxisLatka on 2019/02/08 22:43
NEW REVIEW (Feb. 2019): Another quick fix to the annoying download issue. Great response. App is back to working great. OLD REVIEW (Feb. 2019): The new update is awful. It’s now back to the same issue of downloaded shows not opening from the last place they were being listened to. You can listen to a downloaded show for two hours and then when you go back to the app instead of it saving your place and continuing playing where it was, it goes back to some previous point at the very beginning of the show. Very annoying and it’s happened before. Thought they had it worked out but now this issue is back. Please fix as soon as possible as this makes the app almost unusable. Wish I never updated. Should’ve stuck with the last version that actually worked. Very angry. OLD REVIEW (2018): Love the updated app. It’s the best. The addition of video is pretty cool, but the Stern Shows are loaded fast (usually same afternoon). Had an issue with holding place of downloaded shows, but it appears to have been resolved. A+
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.
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.
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.
New features but lacking polish
by drew_petricc on 2018/11/08 20:01
Lots of glitz and glamour over the new features, & call me crazy, but it actually seems *harder* to just get to my downloaded shows now... Also, if there’s something that looks cool on my home page, better remember it or keep swiping b/c it just scrolls away after a few seconds... sure it’s good to show the different options, but annoying. It also seems to have obfuscated which is actually a new show, or even to just get to what is actually playing live on 100 now. For all its faults, this was not an issue with the old version. All this complaining aside I do like the new app and addition of video clips etc. I’m just looking forward to some revision with usability/ease of use in mind—so keep it up dev team!! Thanks for a great app, I will change to five stars when updated! I do like the more streamlined way to manage/delete downloads and the addition of forward and backward skipping by a few seconds (which was sorely needed). So it’s great & I love it—that’s why I’m saying it just needs a few revisions to be the best in my opinion, thanks.
The more I spend time with this..
by Phantom2089 on 2018/05/14 23:02
The more I’m regretting my app update for it. Why would you fix something that was not broken?? I really hate this new update. There are more cons to point out than pro’s on this! Con: -No mix customizations (BIG NO!) -No info description on each channel and shows within that channel, nor do they provide twitter/phone number to call in the radio channel! -adding favorites just doesn’t work. -backtracking only goes so much as 3 hrs instead of 6 hrs. -there’s no schedule for when upcoming shows are going to broadcast. -channel freezes and locks if your app ended up foreclosing on you or you foreclose the app. (I was always able to resume where I left off EVEN when I foreclosed it, now it makes me lose my place wherever I’m in. REALLY FRUSTRATING ESPECIALLY WITH GRATEFUL DEAD CONCERTS!!!!) -no bright/dim light interface option, I hate how bright this design is now, especially late at night. -takes longer to connect to audio when it used to not on data connection. Pro’s: -Video on-demand for Howard Stern -audio scroller is a bit easier when you want to rewind or fast forward a lot. And that’s all the pros that’s on this app. You have got some MAJOR EDITING to BRING BACK some of the old WITH the new! I feel like my subscription has just plummeted to a mediocre service, I’m really debating on cancelling if they don’t bring back and improve their main qualities of their app. BRING BACK THE OLD APP!!!
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
Great new redesign, some suggestions
by Nelson Ned on 2019/03/30 19:42
UPDATE: Happy that you quickly fixed the landscape iPad issue. CarPlay app is kind of a hot mess. When it works it shows there is tremendous potential for it. But alas, it doesn’t always work. Sometimes it just refuses to stream or update or show anything really. Then there is the sporadic but extremely annoying display of channels and favorites. Often it will only show the first couple of pages of channels and favorites. You can’t see any of the higher numbered channels or favorites that are on the later pages. This is super annoying and I really wish this would be fixed. Finally, Apple Watch app with stand-alone playback on cellular. Please, please, please with a cherry on top. OLD REVIEW: I’m very happy with the performance and new design. It has been working great. Hopefully you bring landscape mode to iPad as the newest version doesn’t have it. Also I really hope you consider an Apple Watch compatible app. Nothing would compliment my cellular Apple Watch more than being able to stream Sirius XM on it. Your UI wouldn’t have to be that complicated. A simple way to select stations and pause, play, volume, favorites, etc. Come on guys and gals. I know you can make this happen. Also I’m having an issue with my favorites not showing all the stations on all devices. My iPhone seems to show them all but my iPad does not. Hopefully the synchronization of favorite stations across all devices can be fixed.
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!
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???
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???
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.
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!
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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! :-)
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.
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.
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.
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
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!

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.
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.
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.
Terrible
by Keeper007 on 2018/02/02 00:37
Unfortunately, this app (for me at least) is riddle with problems. It actually does ok if you are listening to something live. But becomes very problematic when trying to go back and listen to past programs. It constantly says “Trying to recover audio”. When trying to skip past the commercial, it will skip all the way to the live portion of the channel. Then you have to start the show back over and TRY and skip forward to where you left off. If there was another option than using this app, I would totally be all for it. Unfortunately if you want to listen outside of the car or play past shows, be prepared for a potential headache. This company is way to main stream to have an app that is this terrible. Just my opinion and I hope the finally update the app to something that worked more often than it doesn’t. Especially if you are going back to listen to past show.
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.
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!
