Updates make this app worse, not better
by BamaTim on 2021/09/16 16:05
Here’s the deal: I’m just not going to use an app that intentionally makes it difficult to skip over program breaks. I don’t give a flip about your ad revenues, I already pay for the service so no sympathy is due. Making the app sluggish using the time line is, in my opinion, exactly the way XM wants it. XM has obviously let the accountants run things, what with the ever shallowing playlists, inexcusable commercials on the allegedly commercial stations (a promo for your other channels is still a commercial), etc.
Song update not working
by Pbsqueak on 2021/09/16 09:46
Good day I like to leave the favorite page open. I look at the songs playing and will switch channels if a song I like comes on. But the favorites page takes along time to update. I’ll log in at say 5 pm and listen to a few songs. Then I will close it down and open it a few hours later. It still shows the songs from when I left off. I would like the option of refreshing the screen with the current songs playing. It takes 5-10 minutes sometimes for all the channels to get current. This is frustrating.
5.7.8+ won't start in offline mode
by IKoNK on 2021/09/16 01:06
On an airplane, I started my app (5.8.5) to listen to my downloaded shows. Wouldn't start! Whaaat? As soon as I landed, I upgraded to 5.8.6. Same deal! Back home, I tried different versions, and finally found one that works: 5.7.6. Ridiculous!! So now I'm downgraded to 5.7.6, until you guys fix it again. Why is SiriusXM releasing so many useless buggy updates? And who approves them without adequate testing? Fire that person NOW!!!
Doesn’t work with sonos
by Danny B. Cape Cod on 2021/09/15 16:54
I subscribed for my vehicle and downloaded the app so that I can listen to Howard throughout my house on Sonos. After about 10 minutes, the show cuts out and it shows as paused on the sonos app. When I restart, it restarts the whole show. It’s worthless to me. I’ll be cancelling my subscription.
They aren’t listening to us
by eddie pugh on 2021/09/15 13:00
CarPlay app has been broken for a LONG TIME. No switch channel buttons built in, won’t load, favorite channels won’t load. It’s awful! I wish they would put some thought and testing into this and try! They have good programming and wonderful channels, but for customers like myself who do not have Sirius XM directly in their car and do not wish to have an external radio just to listen they make it nearly impossible. Please Sirius, fix the CarPlay and add a “next channel” button on screen, and make it actually load!
Excellent service, awful app
by maxwell7999 on 2021/09/15 03:38
This app is absolutely awful. On all of my devices it randomly stops playing. Certain channels the “go live” button randomly disappears and I have to swipe up to close the app in the background to get it to reset. I also have problems listening to Fox news I do not have with any other stations. Go figure. I love SiriusXM, but I’m going to drop the service if the app does not improve soon.
Insane amount of bugs
by eGARBAGE on 2021/09/14 04:25
App does not work well, especially for Howard. Stops on own all the time. How do you not test this prior to releasing??
Treats the customer as a criminal
by Buckwinn on 2021/09/13 11:49
Has a “feature” that cuts the stream after thirty seconds EVERY TIME you open it to make you press play to insure you’re actually listening.
App is Trash
by Jenwastinghermoney on 2021/09/13 01:08
I’ve had my subscription for 5 months and haven’t ever been able to get past the login screen. It’s absolutely pointless (or purposely misleading?) for Sirius to push the whole “stream in your car and anywhere with the app upgrade” spiel when their app is nonfunctional. Apparently they aren’t paying attention to any of the poor ratings they’re getting on here or they simply don’t care. I’ll be canceling my subscription as it makes little sense to pay for a subscription only to listen for the few minutes I’m in my car per day. Sirius must do better.
App still blows
by DesignatedDriver on 2021/09/12 18:24
I thought I would retry Sirius after in subscribing some time ago, but this app is still garbage. It loads the logo and then hangs. I have no time to waste on cheaply written and obviously untested software.
Zero Stars
by clubhoused on 2021/09/11 16:49
Such garbage. $11.99??? For 350 channels??? Absolutely a rip off. Much better options for free.
Wanted till like it
by JW12Ace on 2021/09/10 20:34
I’m using a free trail. I like the app but unfortunately I cannot move over my subscription to another vehicle or add a subscription without calling around. There’s always an error in which I’m Afraid if I ever sign up it will be troublesome trying to cancel since simple tasks don’t work.
Sound quality - lossless not available
by Big D 1556324 on 2021/09/10 12:36
At the maximum sound quality setting, the fidelity is not bad, but it is definitely not lossless like Apple Music or Amazon music. I think it’s time Sirus mandate their DJ’s only use lossless compression and hire an app developer to update the app to handle lossless compression. Don’t listen to people who say there is no difference. Listen and compare it for yourself. It’s night and day, even on crappy headphones.
Worst app for a paid subscription
by KomradeBanana on 2021/09/09 12:13
This is possibly the worst app I have ever used for a paid subscription. I thought the point of a subscription besides content is also app innovation and updates. I’ve used this app for years and its awful. Same issues for years. The interface is terrible and hard to navigate, the app can go day’s without ever connecting. The app auto pauses randomly. I have now used this app on many different iPhone models over many years and nothing has changed. I am skeptical of the good reviews. SiriusXM is pretty much known to be an unethical company, with absolutely terrible customer service (I’ve been a subscriber for over 16 years -I love satellite radio but I can’t stand SiriusXM as a company and they have the monopoly on satellite radio so there’s really nowhere else to go for the content that I like).I’m pretty sure they hired somebody to write positive reviews because that would be way cheaper than actually having to spend money to fix the app.
Constantly “stops” now
by Otj287 on 2021/09/09 11:44
Used to be fine. Since the last update, I can’t listen on the app for more than a few minutes before it just stops. I have to reach the phone, then click start again, and the process continues. iPhone 11 with latest updates.
Not worth it
by icurnme on 2021/09/08 22:36
Worthless app. Used to work fine, but updates have rendered it useless
Fix this app!!!!
by CA DogMom on 2021/09/08 19:37
All I get is “trying to connect” and song titles no longer update. Push a fix for this worthless app instead of your “Try It” feature. This used to be a good app, but lately it’s been junk.
This app it's God awful
by Shimmer401 on 2021/09/08 15:29
Xm radio is awesome. But this app is awful.
Quit working through CarPlay
by skepr on 2021/09/08 13:53
I’ve used this through CarPlay for a year. With the last two updates, the songs don’t update on the CarPlay screen. They still do on the phone, but the CarPlay app doesn’t update no matter what I do. I have rebooted the car radio and my phone. I get whatever was playing when I plugged the phone in and it never changes. Looking at the ridiculously tiny text on the phone screen while driving is dangerous… which is why I spent $400 getting CarPlay in the first place. Now it’s useless.
Doesn’t load
by Happy Umbrella on 2021/09/07 22:36
FIX IT!!!! 😤
Can use a lot of work
by StephanieB-CST on 2021/09/07 21:01
I use this app often as I work. Lately, it seems to always lag. I try to play a song and despite my connection to internet or cellular data, it rarely plays it. I try to go live, it’s behind or it just won’t connect. If I try to listen in my car, despite it being a clear, sunny day, it has to search for a signal. If y’all can’t get your stuff together, I’ll cancel my service
HORRIBLE app
by Username123436 on 2021/09/07 20:28
For a company as large as Sirius XM Pandora Stitcher, you’d think they’d be able to find SOMEONE who can create an app that just works. Stop trying to make it fancy! Just make it work consistently. That’s all we want.
Mobile app doesn’t update songs on Sirius VM channels
by ILoveFirstWave33 on 2021/09/07 19:54
When I open the SiriusXM mobile app on my iPhone running iOS 14.7.1 (this issue has been happening for the last year and before release of iOS 14) when i see a song title i like on a particular station, i select it and listen to the song, if the next song played isn't for me, i look for a new song title on a different station…”This is when the PROBLEMS start”…all the stations showing songs that are currently being played, ARE NOT the songs being played when you select that channel !?! This happens everyday when i use the mobile app on my cell phone while using home wifi or my Sprint mobile data plan…my husband has the same cell/same iOS, but with TMobile…and has exact same issues. The only way to correct this glitch, you need to get out of the mobile app and then re-launch/log back into the SiriusXM app on your cell, so the mobile app refreshes the channels. Can you please fix this!! It’s very frustrating…thx, customer since 2013
New software update that came out today is terrible!
by Phantomzoner on 2021/09/07 14:33
My phone can no longer even open the app. Please push out an update up fox this!
Impossiblely tiny font
by Pattybeee53 on 2021/09/07 04:14
Why why why do you have to use ant poop for a font? So many choices and you guys go for the invisible. I got this on the cheep for my car but the iPad version is almost useless. Plus I have to search through all the icons to find my favorite picks. Just not a good deal.
Waste of my time
by SoCAL 11 on 2021/09/06 22:23
Does not work with iPhone 12. Despite numerous attempts to logon, the app directs me to upload my logon info many times over and over. Horrible experience and a waste of my time. Long time subscriber with two accounts but will consider dropping my subscription. My time is more valuable than having to enter my logon info too many times. I’ll never get my 30-60 minutes back. You have been warned.
Hatred
by awesometurdrocks on 2021/09/06 03:48
Im literally doing this just because of the but its annoying doesnt make me wanna get it and ive heard it 38 times today and thats just today
Doesn’t work
by Meetlaw on 2021/09/04 05:51
Every time I try to sign into the app it says try again later.
DJs are too loud
by Broken1X on 2021/09/03 22:03
I turn the music up and have the volume just right, but then the DJ comes on and they are like 50% louder than the music. It makes me have to turn it up and down constantly or I feel like I’m being screamed at by the DJ.
How aggravating
by VictorConforti on 2021/09/03 12:28
I went through the whole pass word set up to get this started, then a half hour trying to get the app, where the user name and password need to be reset. I’m 3 month into my subscription when sirrus finally contacts me to link my phone. This is just added crap.
Hate the app love the content
by H2O Tester on 2021/09/03 11:51
This app is easily the buggiest of all the apps I have ever used. I use the app everyday and I have to force close the app numerous times just to get it to change channels. I have to force close the app if I am listening “on demand” and want to update to “listen live” and so on it just never stops. I love the content but I won’t be renewing this fall.
Horrible audio quality
by kane250 on 2021/09/03 08:57
Listening to music on this app you have to crank the volume and the sound itself isn’t very clear. It sounds like compressed garbage in a tin can. The company isn’t incentivized to do better because they don’t have competition.
App stops playing
by Sheri27 on 2021/09/02 12:45
I really enjoy this app however it keeps stop playing and goes to pause mode. iPhone 8, iOS 14.7.4.
Can’t sign in after update
by Whipdong on 2021/09/02 03:45
Friday the app was working fine and now I cannot log in on the app. I can login on my laptop as well as thru Chrome browser on my phone. Very frustrating that I can no longer listen to music on my runs.
App stopped working.
by pu55ycat on 2021/08/31 17:07
Will no longer open on my iPhone or iPad. Just the splash screen and that’s it. Killed the app several times. No luck. About to cancel if this doesn’t get fixed.
I can’t open the dang app
by B.K.! on 2021/08/31 16:55
After freezing, I updated the app and now it won’t load upon opening. Yesterday it was running into strange issues playing two songs at once, freezing and stopping the streaming of channels. (My phone auto-updates apps so it hasn’t been running an outdated version.) I like what the app strives to do, but the bugs are really annoying.
Doesn’t load
by zep123jh8976 on 2021/08/31 16:52
If you are looking for an app that allows your screen to light up blue with the SiriusXM logo in the middle but never progress past that screen, this is the app for you.
Extremely Difficult to Cancel a Subscription
by CheapGasUser on 2021/08/31 15:26
SiriusXM only allows a subscription if you agree to auto renew and provide a valid credit card number. The only way to avoid an auto renewal is to cancel the subscription before the auto renewal occurs. You can purchase or manage a continuing subscription through an online account, but cannot cancel online. You must call a number listed in the online account to cancel. The call is greeted by a voice response computer that is apparently not programmed to recognize my cancellation request so it transferred me to a real person. The real people were too busy to talk so the only option offered was to message chat at applicable data rates. The message chat was another computer that kept advising me of subscriptions available for purchase. Eventually, the computer recognized I wanted to cancel and began asking questions why I wanted to cancel. Instead of completing the cancellation request, the only option offered by the chatting computer was to transfer me to a real person to message chat with. The real person would only chat with me after I completed a verification form. Did I mention that the computers had already recognized my account and were trying to sell me subscriptions. They just wouldn’t allow cancellations. Eventually a real person arrived and began letting me how what subscriptions were available for purchase. After multiple back and forths that escalated to me asking if they were going to allow me to CANCEL and what part of CANCEL did they not understand they began processing the cancellation request. There is no GOOD reason not to allow cancellations through one’s online account. Instead, SiriusXM mandates auto renewal subscriptions, inadequately staffs the cancellation phone lines and adds multiple steps that make the cancellation process very extended and time consuming.
It’s a good app
by Joshua Liberti Posada on 2021/08/31 15:17
It’s a great app don’t get me wrong just that it should be free cuz if I wanna listen to sxm I can go to my car instead of paying or I’ll just make a bunch of gmail emails to keep listening for free
Just broken
by mpstamm on 2021/08/31 11:44
This isn't an app …. Apps actually wark!
What happened?
by Jathoms on 2021/08/30 21:45
Great app until recently. Suddenly it will not let me catch up to live time and now it is putting a buzz in the sound when I’m listening to CNBC
Need a screensaver
by Nine Times Six on 2021/08/30 21:38
Great App! It just needs one thing. I’m using it on my Apple Tv. It could really use a screensaver.
Good luck trying to cancel your subscription
by Moodiator on 2021/08/30 17:27
Canceling is worse than trying to pull teeth!
App stopped working
by *_*DG*_* on 2021/08/30 14:01
All of a sudden it logged me out last weekend when I login I keep getting the same screen and I’m going in circles. It’s frustrating that we pay so much for a service we can’t even access.
Great app
by elodini on 2021/08/29 21:53
I just got a new car with no built in XM radio but have apple car. Love all the extra stations that I did not have access to with my other car. I do have some issues at times will not load and list of favorites will not load and have to go through app. The subscription is through my husband. What would be good under favorites you can make separate favorites as I have to scroll through his to reach mine. Otherwise this app is great.
App for iPhone
by shythed5221 on 2021/08/29 10:10
It did work once now says having trouble with app, so much for paying for service you can’t even use smh
App Download Splash Screen Only
by Phil_Mediator on 2021/08/28 21:06
I downloaded the app on both iPhone and iPad. When clicking on the downloaded icon, I get only the Splash Screen saying SiriusXM. Nothing more. No options. Just the splash screen. I would give no stars if I could. Chat support was worthless.
System
by Cletus1079 on 2021/08/27 19:32
I’m wondering what the developers do for this company? The app constantly freezes after z20 minutes of play all the time. This works about as well as the resident in DC.
Zero stars
by Mary Borgendale on 2021/08/27 19:27
This is the absolute worst app. It hardly ever works.
Doesn’t work
by teallady11 on 2021/08/26 18:32
This app does not seem to work with my iPhone. I’ve tried to login and every time nothing. Finds my accounts and then nothing. Waste of my time.
Going in circles
by Awesome-kid23 on 2021/08/25 19:25
You’d think that with the technology that they have to have to run the radios that their website and app would be better. I feel like I’m dealing with 1999 technology. Keeps sending me back and forth from login page to finding my account then click listen and goes back to login page! I used to love this app now I can’t get into it.
We need an Apple Watch App
by JustinRP37 on 2021/08/24 20:38
Overall the SiriusXM app works great, but we really need an Apple Watch app now, especially as so many other music services offer one. I love running and leaving my phone at home. SiriusXM is not cheap by subscription standards, so please come out with a watch app!
App stops
by subeyondchic on 2021/08/24 16:44
For no apparent reason the app stops playing. I often have to hit the play button in the middle of a program
Love the shows, hate the app performance
by neopreneman on 2021/08/23 23:06
Frustrating app constantly freezes up or disconnects during a show. Cannot cut grass on a riding mower using Bluetooth headphones without the app disconnecting. Not the headphones because they work fine listening to my music. But I look at the phone and app is trying to re-connect.
A paid app that doesn’t work
by metalfan665 on 2021/08/23 17:08
It’s ridiculous that this app has constant connectivity issues despite being a rather expensive paid app. Also it drains your battery unreasonably fast. Until they update their app and make it more stable and reliable it gets 1 star
On Demand and Search not working
by Mich123elle on 2021/08/23 15:52
The app is such a nightmare. When it works I love it, but every time they revise it, there are so many problems that drag on forever. Right now all the shows I “favorited” have vanished, and you can’t find them through the search bar. So frustrating. Basically unable to listen On Demand, since you can’t find the shows to play.
Too Many Issues
by Siriusly Not Happy on 2021/08/23 15:38
Like others have mentioned this app constantly shut down in the middle of listening. It constantly loses connection. Now I can’t even use the search menu to find shows I listen to on demand Come on Sirius, do better. This is ridiculous!
Now I remember why I stopped subscribing.
by Mr. Mediocrity on 2021/08/23 14:29
The app, when it works, is elegant, fully-featured, and easy to navigate. Unfortunately, it’s marred by constant crashes, the audio just stops for no reason after a few minutes, and other times the play button “loading” circle will just spin indefinitely. You have to close the app and try again. It’s frustrating when I push play for my motorcycle ride to work and then as soon as I get on the road, it just stops and I can’t do anything about it unless I want to pull over and hit start again. There’s a lot of bugs to work out, but it’s so inconsistent that I don’t recommend it. It’s fine if it’s free and you normally just use SXM in your car or whatever, but it’s not worth paying for if you listen exclusively with the app.
Always something
by JMoKMo on 2021/08/23 13:55
On demand hasn’t been working for three days now. Even when it does “work” it’s hit or miss if I can actually get it to play or be available to play. If you listen live and pause to continue later it will not pick up where you left off. Such a frustrating app!
App won’t open
by 4Vegan on 2021/08/23 13:08
I can’t get the app to open since the last update. There’s no point in having a subscription if you can’t access it.
It stinks again
by MaxAgHammer on 2021/08/23 09:48
This app’s developers really screw things up at least a couple times every year, and they’ve really done it this time. One of the worst updates I’ve ever seen is this one. Let’s just list the worst problems: - search no longer works at all: No Results, no exceptions. - favorite shows list? Erased! - favorite episodes list? Erased! And will not update even if you manually try to add an episode to it. Teflon? - Go Live button during playback? First it’s here, then it’s gone! No way to get it back except force quit and restart. Peek-A-Boo? - playback and live listening will both just halt, as though the user pressed pause, for no reason, at random. This problem has survived numerous updates. Bug? Feature? Permanent? If I Ran The Zoo, I’d fire everyone from the development team, hire a new development team to fix All The Bugs, and then fire those developers once they’d finished. There should never be any reason to add NeW fEaTuReS to the Sirius/XM app, beyond those that have existed (well, when things are working properly) since over two years ago. Just fix the bugs and call it a day, please. If I had to guess why this app is so terrible so often, I’d say it’s probably the underlying web programming of the Sirius/XM service itself, which is terrible on iOS but is also really unpleasant on a computer’s web browser. No one wants or needs new features; we just want the old features back, with no more persistent, annoying bugs. It’s amazing how badly an otherwise enjoyable and convenient service can be ruined by a frequently terrible app, and in that department, Sirius/XM never ceases to amaze.
Big problems
by FreddieBT on 2021/08/23 05:21
All my favorites disappeared, which happens a lot, but even worse is this time when I search for my shows to re-favorite them it says they don’t exist!!! So frustrating!
App completely useless
by darkwater66 on 2021/08/23 01:42
Only says “No data found” for any Howard shows. I didn't update but app logged me out and wiped all my downloads. Won’t remember any favorites and can’t download content. It’s pretty much useless. The only reason I kept my subscription was to download and listen to Howard during my commute. Looks like I can cancel my subscription. Seems like Sirius is actively trying to lose customers? Should be zero stars but have to leave at least one…
Great App When it works
by diana933l on 2021/08/22 21:03
App can be unpredictable. Randomly removes favorite shows. Makes on demand content unavailable. Currently I am even unable to search my favorite shows. Only option is to listen to them live. Support from Sirius is non existent. I have it 2 stars because I like the content when it works
sirius xm app wants me dead
by ohhelloitsjulia on 2021/08/22 20:11
this app is so frustratingly terrible, there will be times pretty regularly where it legitimately does not function. like nothing will load, nothing will play, and it happens with such regularity & always lasts for an indeterminate amount of time. i also hate that there isn’t an option to skip ahead or behind like10-15 seconds at a time like other audio media platforms. accidentally skipping to the next segment when i’m in the middle of doing something & having to go back and find my spot again… makes me wanna kill or be killed, either one is fine
App needs update
by Temphx on 2021/08/22 20:07
I wish they would get better at updating what song is playing. So many times I’ve gone to a station because a certain song was playing! Ha psyche it’s not.
Junk App & Customer Service
by Tudorose on 2021/08/22 17:23
App won't work with any Bluetooth or Chromecast device I have. It will connect for a couple seconds and that's it. I can listen on my iPad but whoopee. Good luck trying to cancel.
Glitches too often
by TheInfamous on 2021/08/22 16:26
Three or four times a year, the app loses my saved channels and shows. They’re lost for a few days each time and then magically reappear. I reached out to customer service and they didn’t have an answer for why it was happening or how to fix it. This issue has been going on since I subscriber 3-4 years ago.
Never works!
by lyla88888 on 2021/08/22 16:14
I’m sick of paying for this subscription and not being able to actually use it. The app always freezes or is loading. It’s happens at least 4 times a week. This is ridiculous! How long has sirius been around? Get with the times!
Glitchy
by katmac27 on 2021/08/22 14:46
This weekend I cannot search for past shows. Is there a problem with the app yet again. I also get pauses in some of my shows. I pay for this content so please fix these issues.
Fix the search option
by Tjosephc on 2021/08/22 12:22
This gets a one-star from me at the moment. Your search option pulls up nothing. None of the shows, no news, nothing. There’s no option to download anything. Fix this now and I’ll change it back to 4 stars. Fix this issue now.
MISSING SHOWS
by gjhfhjfgujhg on 2021/08/22 06:42
The app is terrible and will crash unexpectedly or just be missing shows constantly. I only pay for Sirius to listen to two shows and these will completely be missing from the app at least once a month for days.
Terrible app

Consistently doesn’t work. So so frustrating. Search feature quits working. Shoes disappear. Shoes quit playing. The most frustrating app
keeps pausing
by Pimpdaddu on 2021/08/21 20:35
Even when I have cellular internet it keeps pausing. Big problem when my trucking company is strict that I don’t use my phone while driving. The commercials on the talk channels have the volume twice as loud.
Worst

This app never works. Yet there’s no alternative. Someone with brains please take over this department
No more on demand content?
by Speedysd98 on 2021/08/21 16:15
This app has given me nothing but trouble. The CarPlay features are sub par, and now, the on demand content has been wiped from the app? That was literally the only thing keeping my subscription to this service.
Podcast failure!
by DJS tunes on 2021/08/21 15:45
This app works great when listening to music but for some reason is total crap when listening to podcasts. It stops playing midway thru most podcast especially older episodes. Happens when either streaming or downloading. The only way to hear more is to restart the whole episode and hope it doesn’t stop again.
Broken again!
by carlmahawkian on 2021/08/21 15:04
All favourite shows are gone. No shows show up in search now. All channel specific content is gone on iOS app. You need to get it together on this mobile experience.
Frustrating
by tomfrye33040 on 2021/08/21 11:48
I find the lengthy delay between the app and the radio extremely annoying and the fact I have to turn the turn start off every time I use the app is also annoying as is “minultem not found” Update. Now the songs don’t update when in car play. Once I load my favorites up the songs don’t change unless I get out of favorites and go back in. It makes terrestrial radio look good
Widget please

AND… Still freezes
Good, but very glitchy
by cjn1000 on 2021/08/20 16:28
Pro: When it works, it’s great. Sound quality, downloads, pause/resume, 1 hour back, and several other convenience functions are nice. Con: One of the most “connection challenged” apps I’ve ever used, and I’ve used many. There are random—and I mean RANDOM—connection drops (even in ideal conditions, where all other apps are connecting perfectly), some that last a few seconds, some that last hours. Customer service is good about issuing credits for egregious outages, but connectivity issues come close to making this app intolerable.
App still broken
by Voyager29 on 2021/08/19 19:56
Even with the current update they go live button still disappears off screen on multiple devices
Not serious about their service.
by Bobsabin on 2021/08/19 03:17
What a joke this company is. The website and app have simply the worst customer service interface ever created. They actually make you call them and be on hold for 45 minutes just to cancel their rarely working service. AVOID.
Good luck Canceling
by JadedKay on 2021/08/18 14:33
Free trial is a lie. They will do anything but let you cancel. Do not sign up if you do not intend to keep this long term. There is no way to cancel on your own but reps will tell you that over and over. When they do start the process they ask you a thousand unnecessary questions and will disconnect the chat if you don’t respond quick enough. Finally talked to someone who told me there’s no way to stop auto-renew and my best bet is going to be to call right before renewal and cancel.. I’m sure they won’t let me cancel then either. I have a feeling I’ll be charged before they let me cancel and I probably won’t ever see that money again. Very frustrating.
Upgrade made things worse
by Bos57 on 2021/08/17 20:57
With every upgrade this app gets worse. Now you can’t go to a live program. You have to exit the channel then go back into it. It was so much better years ago when you couldRewind slightly to catch things you might’ve missed or listen to programs from earlier in the day. Go back to the way things were 10 years ago. They were much better
Most boring interface ever

Crashes All the Time
by Mr. Spectacular 1 on 2021/08/17 06:51
The app would be fine, except that it crashes all the time. It’s not too time consuming to just restart or refresh it, but it’s been this way for years. It crashes on different devices. You’d think they’d invest in fixing it, but I guess not. If it just didn’t crash all the time (and by all the time I mean several times in a minute some instances) it would be fine. Just fix it already.
Female artist channels non-existent
by Level ransome on 2021/08/16 20:47
I just noticed SiriusXM has ZERO female musicians highlighted with their own channels. All kinds of men and male groups, but women apparently are invisible at SiriusXM. Well, this female’s money is no good there, so I cancelled my long-term subscription today. I urge all female subscribers to do the same. This is disgusting, they don’t even deserve one star.
Songs don’t update in play list
by Grumpusdog on 2021/08/16 18:10
I’ve had SiriusXM for close to 20 years. The app is ok. I just wish that when I was scrolling through my favorites it would show what was currently playing. Not what was playing when I opened the app two hours ago. I mean when I open the channel guide on my tv it shows me what is currently on the other channels not what was on earlier in the day. At least be able to refresh the channel list to show current programming instead of having to close and relaunch the app.
Needs to work on kinks.
by anthony12275 on 2021/08/16 13:37
With each update app gets worse. App seems so busy the way it’s laid out. App also freezes often. Also the older downloads are not available. You would think at this point they would get it right.

App not working

App stopped working yesterday morning. Still unable to log in after deleting and reinstalling app. Sirius XM stated to change password. Same issue.
App will not load

I’m suspecting that there is a conflict between the app and iOS, but the app opens to the logo/blue background but fails to open further. Just started today.
Keeps crashing
by NoFlowersForMeToday on 2021/08/12 11:42
Starting Tuesday, August 10th, the app randomly started buffering, and there’s nothing I can do to get it to start playing again. My phone will show that my wifi connectivity is perfect, but the app still won’t play. It takes a few hours before I’m able to listen again.
Disappointed “Currently” Aug 2021

Crashes…A LOT! And for no good reason…
by RelentLess5150 on 2021/08/12 11:25
This app crashes so much I’m looking for an alternative…not many choices though. No matter if I’m on WiFi or the LTE with FULL BARS, it’ll just stop, crash, and say “Offline.” Not good. I deleted it and then reinstalled and now it won’t even open. 👎🏾👎🏾

Serve a 2nd vehicle for free, or use as a fix for an obstructed antenna
by RV Sciencephile on 2018/06/23 13:55
By purchasing the high end SiriusXM service for one satellite receiver, you get this excellent streaming capability as a free bonus. If you have a smartphone with a decent data plan, you don’t need to increase satellite charges by adding a subscription for the other vehicle(s). Get it for one, then use your phone to stream the web based service thru the Bluetooth or cable connection to the audio system in your additional vehicle(s). It’s a terrific bargain for me, as I have 2 cars and two RV’s, and I can get full channel service for all four with just one subscription. Also, for those with vehicles (like my truck camper) that have difficulty getting a clear usable obstruction-free sat signal for their partially shadowed antenna, you can subscribe to service for the vehicle radio, then when in conditions when your antenna isn’t reliable, switch to using your smartphone for streaming to that radio from the same sat account via cell service providers. Thanks SiriusXM for offering this excellent, flexible service at a fair package price!
Awful, awful app
by JohnnyW34 on 2020/10/28 16:46
The app is awful. From what I’ve read about the app online, and from the many users who expressed the same complaints as me, I have a strong suspicion that the positive ratings on here are fake. Especially given the number of ratings versus the number of subscribers that Sirius has. I’ve had the app for a while now. Like many, I suspect, I only use it to listen to the “Howard Stern Show.” But the various functions on the app that are supposed to enable you to restart the show from scratch if you don’t tuning immediately when Howard begins, well those functions don’t always work. And if you pause the show at any point, and go back to it, more than half the time it does not resume where you left off. Sometimes, it doesn’t even happen after a pause. If you are walking somewhere listening to the show but not in real time, and you walk through a store’s WiFi or something, the play jumps to the live feed. I’ve read that these problems are very common. A lot of people with the app express this same dissatisfaction. I have brought it to the attention of Sirius, only to be told that I should delete the app and re-download it. Their customer service is as bad as their app. Frankly, because I am so reliant on the app to listen, I am strongly considering canceling my subscription altogether.
I Love Channel 90 so I bought Premium Pkg
by RealTennesseeMcCoy on 2020/04/05 16:13
I am huge racing fan and especially L❤️VE NASCAR and LeMann racing fan. I began listening to XM Radio my 2005 BMW X-5 and I’ve had it ever since. Now, SirusXm Radio, Initially, I only listened to channel 90 Nascar Radio. Over years I have listened to ESPN OR Fox SportS during college football season. We have it in all 4 cars and two of the tractors. I had not deeply explored other channels until I begin using the app on my mobile device when I’m mowing in Spring amd Summer 12-16 hours a week. They even have workout music by the decade and most recently added Indy Channel, with hosts, Jack Arute and AJ Allmendinger ! Call and they will negotiate a price with you. Only one warning..if you give a credit card number they will auto renew every year. I did not like that and it took a month for them to understand I would either be billed at home the old fashioned way- or cancel. Auto renew takes away a locked in price. They renew at market price.. which was always double the rate I got when I called or this last period I did online via chat session.
God help you if . . . . . . Update
by Queenbeedlg on 2018/06/01 14:24
Like me, you use your iPad in landscape mode. I’ve changed every relevant setting I can think of to get this app to load in landscape mode (as it once did prior to one of the latest updates) but, alas, to no avail. This is so much of a problem that saving the $20 a month I pay for this service is under serious consideration. It’s too much money to pay for the inconvenience of having to turn my iPad 90 degrees to read the app. I would have given it less than one star had that been possible. Update: I’m happy to report that the people at Sirius were listening and have addressed this landscape vs. portrait mode problem. It’s nice to know that there are still some companies out there who listen to their customer’s complaints and respond to them positively, especially in such a short period of time. Happily, I will not have to cancel my subscription, and I can recommend this app without reservation at a solid 5 stars.
Too many bugs
by DJ Joey G on 2019/09/03 21:23
I have MANY apps on my phone and this one has to be one of the most unreliable. Too many issues to list here but the top two that make me crazy are #1 It stops working randomly mid shows, doesn't matter if its while listening to an on demand episode, a download or live. The app would go into a never ending loading state or just crash completely. #2 the most annoying and dangerous bug is when the app randomly starts playing in my pocket at the worst times. I listen to some XL rated shows with adult language and these shows that i haven't listened to for a few hours or sometimes haven't listened to that day at all will just start playing, full volume, in my pocket. The app is not running so i cant even kill it, i have to frantically turn the volume down then go into my control center and pause it. Its gotten to the point where if i’m going into certain places i have to turn my volume all the way down because i cant trust the app to not start playing, or i need to make sure the last thing i listen to is “safe”....Also when my phone connects to the bluetooth in my vehicles it just starts playing if i want it to or not, again the app isn't even running. Its ridiculous.....
No landscape mode; update horrible for RadioClassics
by PetiteFrog on 2018/06/07 23:02
UPDATE: Thanks for adding the landscape mode back - although why on earth was it removed in the first place??? I have upgraded my rating from 1 star to 3 stars. What would give it one more star - display the times of the previously played RadioClassic shows. I have no idea what played when. You provide the option to listen to earlier shows, but the segments aren’t descriptive enough so I am having to go through all of them to find the show I want to listen to. PREVIOUS REVIEW: As others have stated, not having the ability to view using landscape mode is very annoying. However, not nearly as annoying and useless as what the upgrade has done to the RadioClassics station. Before the update, I could see all the programs that played in the past 5 or 6 hours and select one of those shows - easily. Now —- you can’t see the time a previous show was played and have to guess which item it is in the viewable segments. Viewing all the segments is nearly impossible. No way to easily see and select earlier segments. The upgrade has made the RadioClassics stations impossible to navigate.
CarPlay buggy, no chrome cast support but good sound quality
by Cypherstream on 2018/10/25 02:17
So glad they recently added Apple CarPlay, however it’s very buggy. Many times favorites don’t load, recents may not load, or the car play screen is just blank. It does work better if you unlock your phone first, but who can do that if your driving and have your phone put down (it auto locks fairly quickly). What is wrong with SiriusXM not offering chromecast functionality? It seems this would be the easiest way to get SXM in your house. To be able to chrome cast SXM would be a great asset to listen at home when doing household work. Other than the very buggy CarPlay support and lack of Chromecast feature, the sound quality is far better than what you get on the actual satellite. You also have access to many more channels and on demand content. This is why I prefer to use the app via CarPlay instead of my cars built in XM tuner. My car only goes up to channels in the 200’s. The app has channels into the 700’s! I’m no longer missing out on Faction or the Emo Project, indie 1.0, or Rock Bar. If only CarPlay worked all the time, this would be a killer app.
Favorites won’t save & keep getting deleted
by Food Jock on 2020/06/18 20:38
Does Sirius even read these user reviews and care about customer service? For 2 months all my favorites keep getting deleted. Lately it seems to occur almost daily, sometimes even twice in a day. Before that it had been every couple weeks. I’ve seen other reviews claiming the same thing. Do you even read the user reviews? Last month I even sent a Feedback email to tech support reporting the issue and was given a response that they will reply back within 24 hrs. Nope. Nothing. Not even a follow up. And meanwhile, the problem has gotten worse and it’s very time consuming to constantly go back & forth re adding shows to the favorites list. In addition, 3 times in the past week and as recently as last night, I haven’t been able to access anything because the app keeps saying “we’re sorry but you seem to be offline. Please check your WiFi connection or try again later.” There’s been absolutely nothing wrong with my internet & WiFi. This used to be my favorite app and I use it daily mostly for MLB Radio. But lately this app has been horrible and I’m paying too much money for an annual subscription to put up with this crap.
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
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!
Mobile app doesn’t update songs on Sirius VM channels
by ILoveFirstWave33 on 2021/09/07 19:54
When I open the SiriusXM mobile app on my iPhone running iOS 14.7.1 (this issue has been happening for the last year and before release of iOS 14) when i see a song title i like on a particular station, i select it and listen to the song, if the next song played isn't for me, i look for a new song title on a different station…”This is when the PROBLEMS start”…all the stations showing songs that are currently being played, ARE NOT the songs being played when you select that channel !?! This happens everyday when i use the mobile app on my cell phone while using home wifi or my Sprint mobile data plan…my husband has the same cell/same iOS, but with TMobile…and has exact same issues. The only way to correct this glitch, you need to get out of the mobile app and then re-launch/log back into the SiriusXM app on your cell, so the mobile app refreshes the channels. Can you please fix this!! It’s very frustrating…thx, customer since 2013
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.
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.
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.
Great once you you can get what they promise.

I have loved having SiriusXM. I received it as a gift from my daughter so I could listen to baseball. With it, I can hear our beloved Cleveland Indians from my home in New England. (We lived in northeast Ohio for 17 years.). Problem was it took days and several calls to get what my daughter paid for. The station I needed didn’t come in on my radio and it seemed to be quite a problem to get it to work. Worse yet, my husband on a totally different account tried to add the Indians station, and while SiriusXM was quick to charge him for the extra station, they failed to let him know that for some reason his brand new car had the wrong type of radio to get the higher stations. (He already has a basic XM radio package, so still have no clue what the issue was.) The reps that help are very nice, but it should be as easy to get the stations you are looking for, as it is for the XM folk to take your money.
Can’t sign in
by teaboneski on 2020/04/02 01:03
I’ve been using this app for years and there are always issues. The current one (and it’s kind of a big one) is that I can’t get passed the login screen. I’ve been trying to log in since March 11th, when I was logged out randomly (which happens occasionally with most subscription apps, so no big deal). Today is April 1, and I still haven’t been able to log in. I know my credentials, so that’s not the problem. I can still log into my account on the web, it’s just the mobile app I can’t sign into. I type in my credentials and the SiriusXM logo pops up and loads indefinitely. I’ve reached out to support (phone and email) but it’s impossible getting in touch right now, which is understandable in the current circumstances. I get it, I just don’t want to be paying for something I can’t use. You also can’t cancel your account without speaking to a representative. As stated above, that’s nearly impossible right now. And there’s no online option to cancel. Not sure what to do at this point.
Sometimes it works
by Thome258 on 2019/11/06 13:06
This app has to be the worst app for issues. Sometimes it works fine then they update it and it never fails that it causes issues. If you email customer service you get the same response every time. They tell you to delete the app and reinstall it. I don’t want to have to do that at least once a month because then I lose all the shows I’ve downloaded . I don’t have unlimited data so I like that I can download the shows I’ve missed onto the app to listen to in the car. I just wish it was more consistent and didn’t have an issue every time they put out an update. Right now the issue is that if I stop listening to a show and go back to it later it will restart from the beginning and not where I left off. Then I have to try to figure out where I was. I wish they’d add a forward button that only went like 20 seconds instead of having to either forward past a whole segment or slide to another part of the show but not knowing where you’ll end up stopping.
Free at Last!
by Fadiddle on 2019/07/18 00:49
With all the other great providers of streaming music that are free out there, this was the best thing they could have done. We are already paying for the service, and requiring additional payment like it was before for the streaming service, you turned many people away. Not just from streaming but from your service altogether. That would be like my internet service saying I had to pay for service on each device that was connected to the same service, I was already paying for. Glad y’all were able to buy pandora and work it out for us(the paying customers) to enjoy your service the way it should be; “Anyway we want to enjoy it, Anywhere we want to enjoy it.” Keep doing business like this, and you’ll not only have me as a loyal customer, but many, many more!
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.
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.
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.
Garbage App
by THE-MACHINE on 2021/07/16 17:34
This app is complete garbage, it will constantly stop playing rendering it completely useless. I have been a customer for over 15 years and can honestly say, the customer service has become dismal. I called to get technical support, it was answered by someone who spoke English poorly and was hard to understand. I was then transferred to their “Advanced Technical Support” and again was answered by another person who didn’t speak clear English l. But, as a bonus, this person was obviously reading from a script and began asking questions the had nothing to do with solving the problem. I had made it clear that I was calling from the very phone the app was on, this individual asked me several times to attempt to access a channel on the app. I explained about 5 times that I can not play the application and talk on the phone simultaneously. After the 5th time of exposing this, I eventually said this was a waste of time and hung up. With out resolving my issue, I’m now here, extremely frustrated. If you’re expecting good service, think again.
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.
Very slow to start playing
by Straight Answers on 2021/02/18 19:39
While I love the Sirius stations, the mobile app is problematic. Whereas Pandora almost never has any issues starting up and playing whether on WiFi or not, Sirius is horrible! 9 times out of 10 when I want to start listening I tap the station I want, from my favorites, and the little play arrow turns into a circle that spins for a very long time. Like, some days it does that for hours without ever playing. Yes, I have uninstalled and reinstalled the app. Yes I have closed the app and reopened. That has never changed anything. It is still very much a pain and very unreliable as to whether I will actually get to listen to anything via the app. On average I’d say it takes 15 -20 minutes to get it to start playing. This is regardless of whether I am in my office right by my wifi modem or out on 5g service. Just as problematic either way. Find out how Pandora is so reliable and do that, please. Otherwise, I won’t renew when this subscription expires.
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.
Ok but crowded
by DocMagi on 2020/11/16 19:45
At a point an app can become crowded and more complicated than needed. This app is one of them and less would be better. It plays music and videos but because of the clutter the main purpose of the app is lacking. Tried using it on the Apple TV but that is silly because whoever designed the app apparently has never used the Apple TV app or just likes pretty pictures. Deleting it off the tv because it simply freezes up and is worthless. The phone app works but again simple is better with less clutter and less bandwidth required to load and run. Actually you seem to be going in the wrong direction especially considering how expensive your service is compared to better streaming services. When Pandora comes with a car radio I imagine your subscriptions with decline a great deal. Shame that your service is worse and your prices increase.
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
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.
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!
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.

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.
Terrible
by Keeper007 on 2021/03/02 19:09
Unfortunately, this app (for me at least) is riddle with problems. It actually does ok if you are listening to something live, but becomes very problematic when trying to go back and listen to past programs. It constantly says “Trying to recover audio”. When trying to skip past the commercial, it will skip all the way to the live portion of the channel. Then you have to start the show back over and TRY and skip forward to where you left off. If there was another option than using this app, I would totally be all for it. Unfortunately if you want to listen outside of the car or play past shows, be prepared for a potential headache. This company is way to main stream to have an app that is this terrible. Just my opinion and I hope they finally update the app to something that worked more often than it doesn’t. Especially if you are going back to listen to past show.
Love the app, but needs a playback speed option for OnDemand
by Poo ln a Cup on 2019/10/12 16:20
I really wish there was a playback speed option for OnDemand. I listen almost exclusively to SXM talk & comedy OnDemand, but I miss a lot of episodes of shows that I love and have listened to for years. The problem with so much good content is finding time to listen to it all. I could listen to more episodes if I could play shows at speeds of 1.25x, 1.5x, etc. Aside from that, this version of the app is great. I’ve been a loyal subscriber for well over 10 years and most of that has been using the app (iOS) or online subscriptions. Developers have really paid attention to what subscribers want and this version has way less crashing than ever before and now with videos and the AppleTV app, it is a total game changer for the platform.
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.

Updates make this app worse, not better
by BamaTim on 2021/09/16 16:05
Here’s the deal: I’m just not going to use an app that intentionally makes it difficult to skip over program breaks. I don’t give a flip about your ad revenues, I already pay for the service so no sympathy is due. Making the app sluggish using the time line is, in my opinion, exactly the way XM wants it. XM has obviously let the accountants run things, what with the ever shallowing playlists, inexcusable commercials on the allegedly commercial stations (a promo for your other channels is still a commercial), etc.
Song update not working
by Pbsqueak on 2021/09/16 09:46
Good day I like to leave the favorite page open. I look at the songs playing and will switch channels if a song I like comes on. But the favorites page takes along time to update. I’ll log in at say 5 pm and listen to a few songs. Then I will close it down and open it a few hours later. It still shows the songs from when I left off. I would like the option of refreshing the screen with the current songs playing. It takes 5-10 minutes sometimes for all the channels to get current. This is frustrating.
5.7.8+ won't start in offline mode
by IKoNK on 2021/09/16 01:06
On an airplane, I started my app (5.8.5) to listen to my downloaded shows. Wouldn't start! Whaaat? As soon as I landed, I upgraded to 5.8.6. Same deal! Back home, I tried different versions, and finally found one that works: 5.7.6. Ridiculous!! So now I'm downgraded to 5.7.6, until you guys fix it again. Why is SiriusXM releasing so many useless buggy updates? And who approves them without adequate testing? Fire that person NOW!!!
Doesn’t work with sonos
by Danny B. Cape Cod on 2021/09/15 16:54
I subscribed for my vehicle and downloaded the app so that I can listen to Howard throughout my house on Sonos. After about 10 minutes, the show cuts out and it shows as paused on the sonos app. When I restart, it restarts the whole show. It’s worthless to me. I’ll be cancelling my subscription.
They aren’t listening to us
by eddie pugh on 2021/09/15 13:00
CarPlay app has been broken for a LONG TIME. No switch channel buttons built in, won’t load, favorite channels won’t load. It’s awful! I wish they would put some thought and testing into this and try! They have good programming and wonderful channels, but for customers like myself who do not have Sirius XM directly in their car and do not wish to have an external radio just to listen they make it nearly impossible. Please Sirius, fix the CarPlay and add a “next channel” button on screen, and make it actually load!
Excellent service, awful app
by maxwell7999 on 2021/09/15 03:38
This app is absolutely awful. On all of my devices it randomly stops playing. Certain channels the “go live” button randomly disappears and I have to swipe up to close the app in the background to get it to reset. I also have problems listening to Fox news I do not have with any other stations. Go figure. I love SiriusXM, but I’m going to drop the service if the app does not improve soon.
Insane amount of bugs
by eGARBAGE on 2021/09/14 04:25
App does not work well, especially for Howard. Stops on own all the time. How do you not test this prior to releasing??
Treats the customer as a criminal
by Buckwinn on 2021/09/13 11:49
Has a “feature” that cuts the stream after thirty seconds EVERY TIME you open it to make you press play to insure you’re actually listening.
App is Trash
by Jenwastinghermoney on 2021/09/13 01:08
I’ve had my subscription for 5 months and haven’t ever been able to get past the login screen. It’s absolutely pointless (or purposely misleading?) for Sirius to push the whole “stream in your car and anywhere with the app upgrade” spiel when their app is nonfunctional. Apparently they aren’t paying attention to any of the poor ratings they’re getting on here or they simply don’t care. I’ll be canceling my subscription as it makes little sense to pay for a subscription only to listen for the few minutes I’m in my car per day. Sirius must do better.
App still blows
by DesignatedDriver on 2021/09/12 18:24
I thought I would retry Sirius after in subscribing some time ago, but this app is still garbage. It loads the logo and then hangs. I have no time to waste on cheaply written and obviously untested software.
Zero Stars
by clubhoused on 2021/09/11 16:49
Such garbage. $11.99??? For 350 channels??? Absolutely a rip off. Much better options for free.
Wanted till like it
by JW12Ace on 2021/09/10 20:34
I’m using a free trail. I like the app but unfortunately I cannot move over my subscription to another vehicle or add a subscription without calling around. There’s always an error in which I’m Afraid if I ever sign up it will be troublesome trying to cancel since simple tasks don’t work.
Sound quality - lossless not available
by Big D 1556324 on 2021/09/10 12:36
At the maximum sound quality setting, the fidelity is not bad, but it is definitely not lossless like Apple Music or Amazon music. I think it’s time Sirus mandate their DJ’s only use lossless compression and hire an app developer to update the app to handle lossless compression. Don’t listen to people who say there is no difference. Listen and compare it for yourself. It’s night and day, even on crappy headphones.
Worst app for a paid subscription
by KomradeBanana on 2021/09/09 12:13
This is possibly the worst app I have ever used for a paid subscription. I thought the point of a subscription besides content is also app innovation and updates. I’ve used this app for years and its awful. Same issues for years. The interface is terrible and hard to navigate, the app can go day’s without ever connecting. The app auto pauses randomly. I have now used this app on many different iPhone models over many years and nothing has changed. I am skeptical of the good reviews. SiriusXM is pretty much known to be an unethical company, with absolutely terrible customer service (I’ve been a subscriber for over 16 years -I love satellite radio but I can’t stand SiriusXM as a company and they have the monopoly on satellite radio so there’s really nowhere else to go for the content that I like).I’m pretty sure they hired somebody to write positive reviews because that would be way cheaper than actually having to spend money to fix the app.
Constantly “stops” now
by Otj287 on 2021/09/09 11:44
Used to be fine. Since the last update, I can’t listen on the app for more than a few minutes before it just stops. I have to reach the phone, then click start again, and the process continues. iPhone 11 with latest updates.
Not worth it
by icurnme on 2021/09/08 22:36
Worthless app. Used to work fine, but updates have rendered it useless
Fix this app!!!!
by CA DogMom on 2021/09/08 19:37
All I get is “trying to connect” and song titles no longer update. Push a fix for this worthless app instead of your “Try It” feature. This used to be a good app, but lately it’s been junk.
This app it's God awful
by Shimmer401 on 2021/09/08 15:29
Xm radio is awesome. But this app is awful.
Quit working through CarPlay
by skepr on 2021/09/08 13:53
I’ve used this through CarPlay for a year. With the last two updates, the songs don’t update on the CarPlay screen. They still do on the phone, but the CarPlay app doesn’t update no matter what I do. I have rebooted the car radio and my phone. I get whatever was playing when I plugged the phone in and it never changes. Looking at the ridiculously tiny text on the phone screen while driving is dangerous… which is why I spent $400 getting CarPlay in the first place. Now it’s useless.
Doesn’t load
by Happy Umbrella on 2021/09/07 22:36
FIX IT!!!! 😤
Can use a lot of work
by StephanieB-CST on 2021/09/07 21:01
I use this app often as I work. Lately, it seems to always lag. I try to play a song and despite my connection to internet or cellular data, it rarely plays it. I try to go live, it’s behind or it just won’t connect. If I try to listen in my car, despite it being a clear, sunny day, it has to search for a signal. If y’all can’t get your stuff together, I’ll cancel my service
HORRIBLE app
by Username123436 on 2021/09/07 20:28
For a company as large as Sirius XM Pandora Stitcher, you’d think they’d be able to find SOMEONE who can create an app that just works. Stop trying to make it fancy! Just make it work consistently. That’s all we want.
Mobile app doesn’t update songs on Sirius VM channels
by ILoveFirstWave33 on 2021/09/07 19:54
When I open the SiriusXM mobile app on my iPhone running iOS 14.7.1 (this issue has been happening for the last year and before release of iOS 14) when i see a song title i like on a particular station, i select it and listen to the song, if the next song played isn't for me, i look for a new song title on a different station…”This is when the PROBLEMS start”…all the stations showing songs that are currently being played, ARE NOT the songs being played when you select that channel !?! This happens everyday when i use the mobile app on my cell phone while using home wifi or my Sprint mobile data plan…my husband has the same cell/same iOS, but with TMobile…and has exact same issues. The only way to correct this glitch, you need to get out of the mobile app and then re-launch/log back into the SiriusXM app on your cell, so the mobile app refreshes the channels. Can you please fix this!! It’s very frustrating…thx, customer since 2013
New software update that came out today is terrible!
by Phantomzoner on 2021/09/07 14:33
My phone can no longer even open the app. Please push out an update up fox this!
Impossiblely tiny font
by Pattybeee53 on 2021/09/07 04:14
Why why why do you have to use ant poop for a font? So many choices and you guys go for the invisible. I got this on the cheep for my car but the iPad version is almost useless. Plus I have to search through all the icons to find my favorite picks. Just not a good deal.
Waste of my time
by SoCAL 11 on 2021/09/06 22:23
Does not work with iPhone 12. Despite numerous attempts to logon, the app directs me to upload my logon info many times over and over. Horrible experience and a waste of my time. Long time subscriber with two accounts but will consider dropping my subscription. My time is more valuable than having to enter my logon info too many times. I’ll never get my 30-60 minutes back. You have been warned.
Hatred
by awesometurdrocks on 2021/09/06 03:48
Im literally doing this just because of the but its annoying doesnt make me wanna get it and ive heard it 38 times today and thats just today
Doesn’t work
by Meetlaw on 2021/09/04 05:51
Every time I try to sign into the app it says try again later.
DJs are too loud
by Broken1X on 2021/09/03 22:03
I turn the music up and have the volume just right, but then the DJ comes on and they are like 50% louder than the music. It makes me have to turn it up and down constantly or I feel like I’m being screamed at by the DJ.
How aggravating
by VictorConforti on 2021/09/03 12:28
I went through the whole pass word set up to get this started, then a half hour trying to get the app, where the user name and password need to be reset. I’m 3 month into my subscription when sirrus finally contacts me to link my phone. This is just added crap.
Hate the app love the content
by H2O Tester on 2021/09/03 11:51
This app is easily the buggiest of all the apps I have ever used. I use the app everyday and I have to force close the app numerous times just to get it to change channels. I have to force close the app if I am listening “on demand” and want to update to “listen live” and so on it just never stops. I love the content but I won’t be renewing this fall.
Horrible audio quality
by kane250 on 2021/09/03 08:57
Listening to music on this app you have to crank the volume and the sound itself isn’t very clear. It sounds like compressed garbage in a tin can. The company isn’t incentivized to do better because they don’t have competition.
App stops playing
by Sheri27 on 2021/09/02 12:45
I really enjoy this app however it keeps stop playing and goes to pause mode. iPhone 8, iOS 14.7.4.
Can’t sign in after update
by Whipdong on 2021/09/02 03:45
Friday the app was working fine and now I cannot log in on the app. I can login on my laptop as well as thru Chrome browser on my phone. Very frustrating that I can no longer listen to music on my runs.
App stopped working.
by pu55ycat on 2021/08/31 17:07
Will no longer open on my iPhone or iPad. Just the splash screen and that’s it. Killed the app several times. No luck. About to cancel if this doesn’t get fixed.
I can’t open the dang app
by B.K.! on 2021/08/31 16:55
After freezing, I updated the app and now it won’t load upon opening. Yesterday it was running into strange issues playing two songs at once, freezing and stopping the streaming of channels. (My phone auto-updates apps so it hasn’t been running an outdated version.) I like what the app strives to do, but the bugs are really annoying.
Doesn’t load
by zep123jh8976 on 2021/08/31 16:52
If you are looking for an app that allows your screen to light up blue with the SiriusXM logo in the middle but never progress past that screen, this is the app for you.
Extremely Difficult to Cancel a Subscription
by CheapGasUser on 2021/08/31 15:26
SiriusXM only allows a subscription if you agree to auto renew and provide a valid credit card number. The only way to avoid an auto renewal is to cancel the subscription before the auto renewal occurs. You can purchase or manage a continuing subscription through an online account, but cannot cancel online. You must call a number listed in the online account to cancel. The call is greeted by a voice response computer that is apparently not programmed to recognize my cancellation request so it transferred me to a real person. The real people were too busy to talk so the only option offered was to message chat at applicable data rates. The message chat was another computer that kept advising me of subscriptions available for purchase. Eventually, the computer recognized I wanted to cancel and began asking questions why I wanted to cancel. Instead of completing the cancellation request, the only option offered by the chatting computer was to transfer me to a real person to message chat with. The real person would only chat with me after I completed a verification form. Did I mention that the computers had already recognized my account and were trying to sell me subscriptions. They just wouldn’t allow cancellations. Eventually a real person arrived and began letting me how what subscriptions were available for purchase. After multiple back and forths that escalated to me asking if they were going to allow me to CANCEL and what part of CANCEL did they not understand they began processing the cancellation request. There is no GOOD reason not to allow cancellations through one’s online account. Instead, SiriusXM mandates auto renewal subscriptions, inadequately staffs the cancellation phone lines and adds multiple steps that make the cancellation process very extended and time consuming.
It’s a good app
by Joshua Liberti Posada on 2021/08/31 15:17
It’s a great app don’t get me wrong just that it should be free cuz if I wanna listen to sxm I can go to my car instead of paying or I’ll just make a bunch of gmail emails to keep listening for free
Just broken
by mpstamm on 2021/08/31 11:44
This isn't an app …. Apps actually wark!
What happened?
by Jathoms on 2021/08/30 21:45
Great app until recently. Suddenly it will not let me catch up to live time and now it is putting a buzz in the sound when I’m listening to CNBC
Need a screensaver
by Nine Times Six on 2021/08/30 21:38
Great App! It just needs one thing. I’m using it on my Apple Tv. It could really use a screensaver.
Good luck trying to cancel your subscription
by Moodiator on 2021/08/30 17:27
Canceling is worse than trying to pull teeth!
App stopped working
by *_*DG*_* on 2021/08/30 14:01
All of a sudden it logged me out last weekend when I login I keep getting the same screen and I’m going in circles. It’s frustrating that we pay so much for a service we can’t even access.
Great app
by elodini on 2021/08/29 21:53
I just got a new car with no built in XM radio but have apple car. Love all the extra stations that I did not have access to with my other car. I do have some issues at times will not load and list of favorites will not load and have to go through app. The subscription is through my husband. What would be good under favorites you can make separate favorites as I have to scroll through his to reach mine. Otherwise this app is great.
App for iPhone
by shythed5221 on 2021/08/29 10:10
It did work once now says having trouble with app, so much for paying for service you can’t even use smh
App Download Splash Screen Only
by Phil_Mediator on 2021/08/28 21:06
I downloaded the app on both iPhone and iPad. When clicking on the downloaded icon, I get only the Splash Screen saying SiriusXM. Nothing more. No options. Just the splash screen. I would give no stars if I could. Chat support was worthless.
System
by Cletus1079 on 2021/08/27 19:32
I’m wondering what the developers do for this company? The app constantly freezes after z20 minutes of play all the time. This works about as well as the resident in DC.
Zero stars
by Mary Borgendale on 2021/08/27 19:27
This is the absolute worst app. It hardly ever works.
Doesn’t work
by teallady11 on 2021/08/26 18:32
This app does not seem to work with my iPhone. I’ve tried to login and every time nothing. Finds my accounts and then nothing. Waste of my time.
Going in circles
by Awesome-kid23 on 2021/08/25 19:25
You’d think that with the technology that they have to have to run the radios that their website and app would be better. I feel like I’m dealing with 1999 technology. Keeps sending me back and forth from login page to finding my account then click listen and goes back to login page! I used to love this app now I can’t get into it.
We need an Apple Watch App
by JustinRP37 on 2021/08/24 20:38
Overall the SiriusXM app works great, but we really need an Apple Watch app now, especially as so many other music services offer one. I love running and leaving my phone at home. SiriusXM is not cheap by subscription standards, so please come out with a watch app!
App stops
by subeyondchic on 2021/08/24 16:44
For no apparent reason the app stops playing. I often have to hit the play button in the middle of a program
Love the shows, hate the app performance
by neopreneman on 2021/08/23 23:06
Frustrating app constantly freezes up or disconnects during a show. Cannot cut grass on a riding mower using Bluetooth headphones without the app disconnecting. Not the headphones because they work fine listening to my music. But I look at the phone and app is trying to re-connect.
A paid app that doesn’t work
by metalfan665 on 2021/08/23 17:08
It’s ridiculous that this app has constant connectivity issues despite being a rather expensive paid app. Also it drains your battery unreasonably fast. Until they update their app and make it more stable and reliable it gets 1 star
On Demand and Search not working
by Mich123elle on 2021/08/23 15:52
The app is such a nightmare. When it works I love it, but every time they revise it, there are so many problems that drag on forever. Right now all the shows I “favorited” have vanished, and you can’t find them through the search bar. So frustrating. Basically unable to listen On Demand, since you can’t find the shows to play.
Too Many Issues
by Siriusly Not Happy on 2021/08/23 15:38
Like others have mentioned this app constantly shut down in the middle of listening. It constantly loses connection. Now I can’t even use the search menu to find shows I listen to on demand Come on Sirius, do better. This is ridiculous!
Now I remember why I stopped subscribing.
by Mr. Mediocrity on 2021/08/23 14:29
The app, when it works, is elegant, fully-featured, and easy to navigate. Unfortunately, it’s marred by constant crashes, the audio just stops for no reason after a few minutes, and other times the play button “loading” circle will just spin indefinitely. You have to close the app and try again. It’s frustrating when I push play for my motorcycle ride to work and then as soon as I get on the road, it just stops and I can’t do anything about it unless I want to pull over and hit start again. There’s a lot of bugs to work out, but it’s so inconsistent that I don’t recommend it. It’s fine if it’s free and you normally just use SXM in your car or whatever, but it’s not worth paying for if you listen exclusively with the app.
Always something
by JMoKMo on 2021/08/23 13:55
On demand hasn’t been working for three days now. Even when it does “work” it’s hit or miss if I can actually get it to play or be available to play. If you listen live and pause to continue later it will not pick up where you left off. Such a frustrating app!
App won’t open
by 4Vegan on 2021/08/23 13:08
I can’t get the app to open since the last update. There’s no point in having a subscription if you can’t access it.
It stinks again
by MaxAgHammer on 2021/08/23 09:48
This app’s developers really screw things up at least a couple times every year, and they’ve really done it this time. One of the worst updates I’ve ever seen is this one. Let’s just list the worst problems: - search no longer works at all: No Results, no exceptions. - favorite shows list? Erased! - favorite episodes list? Erased! And will not update even if you manually try to add an episode to it. Teflon? - Go Live button during playback? First it’s here, then it’s gone! No way to get it back except force quit and restart. Peek-A-Boo? - playback and live listening will both just halt, as though the user pressed pause, for no reason, at random. This problem has survived numerous updates. Bug? Feature? Permanent? If I Ran The Zoo, I’d fire everyone from the development team, hire a new development team to fix All The Bugs, and then fire those developers once they’d finished. There should never be any reason to add NeW fEaTuReS to the Sirius/XM app, beyond those that have existed (well, when things are working properly) since over two years ago. Just fix the bugs and call it a day, please. If I had to guess why this app is so terrible so often, I’d say it’s probably the underlying web programming of the Sirius/XM service itself, which is terrible on iOS but is also really unpleasant on a computer’s web browser. No one wants or needs new features; we just want the old features back, with no more persistent, annoying bugs. It’s amazing how badly an otherwise enjoyable and convenient service can be ruined by a frequently terrible app, and in that department, Sirius/XM never ceases to amaze.
Big problems
by FreddieBT on 2021/08/23 05:21
All my favorites disappeared, which happens a lot, but even worse is this time when I search for my shows to re-favorite them it says they don’t exist!!! So frustrating!
App completely useless
by darkwater66 on 2021/08/23 01:42
Only says “No data found” for any Howard shows. I didn't update but app logged me out and wiped all my downloads. Won’t remember any favorites and can’t download content. It’s pretty much useless. The only reason I kept my subscription was to download and listen to Howard during my commute. Looks like I can cancel my subscription. Seems like Sirius is actively trying to lose customers? Should be zero stars but have to leave at least one…
Great App When it works
by diana933l on 2021/08/22 21:03
App can be unpredictable. Randomly removes favorite shows. Makes on demand content unavailable. Currently I am even unable to search my favorite shows. Only option is to listen to them live. Support from Sirius is non existent. I have it 2 stars because I like the content when it works
sirius xm app wants me dead
by ohhelloitsjulia on 2021/08/22 20:11
this app is so frustratingly terrible, there will be times pretty regularly where it legitimately does not function. like nothing will load, nothing will play, and it happens with such regularity & always lasts for an indeterminate amount of time. i also hate that there isn’t an option to skip ahead or behind like10-15 seconds at a time like other audio media platforms. accidentally skipping to the next segment when i’m in the middle of doing something & having to go back and find my spot again… makes me wanna kill or be killed, either one is fine
App needs update
by Temphx on 2021/08/22 20:07
I wish they would get better at updating what song is playing. So many times I’ve gone to a station because a certain song was playing! Ha psyche it’s not.
Junk App & Customer Service
by Tudorose on 2021/08/22 17:23
App won't work with any Bluetooth or Chromecast device I have. It will connect for a couple seconds and that's it. I can listen on my iPad but whoopee. Good luck trying to cancel.
Glitches too often
by TheInfamous on 2021/08/22 16:26
Three or four times a year, the app loses my saved channels and shows. They’re lost for a few days each time and then magically reappear. I reached out to customer service and they didn’t have an answer for why it was happening or how to fix it. This issue has been going on since I subscriber 3-4 years ago.
Never works!
by lyla88888 on 2021/08/22 16:14
I’m sick of paying for this subscription and not being able to actually use it. The app always freezes or is loading. It’s happens at least 4 times a week. This is ridiculous! How long has sirius been around? Get with the times!
Glitchy
by katmac27 on 2021/08/22 14:46
This weekend I cannot search for past shows. Is there a problem with the app yet again. I also get pauses in some of my shows. I pay for this content so please fix these issues.
Fix the search option
by Tjosephc on 2021/08/22 12:22
This gets a one-star from me at the moment. Your search option pulls up nothing. None of the shows, no news, nothing. There’s no option to download anything. Fix this now and I’ll change it back to 4 stars. Fix this issue now.
MISSING SHOWS
by gjhfhjfgujhg on 2021/08/22 06:42
The app is terrible and will crash unexpectedly or just be missing shows constantly. I only pay for Sirius to listen to two shows and these will completely be missing from the app at least once a month for days.
Terrible app
by Cancel subscription on 2021/08/21 21:44
Consistently doesn’t work. So so frustrating. Search feature quits working. Shoes disappear. Shoes quit playing. The most frustrating app
keeps pausing
by Pimpdaddu on 2021/08/21 20:35
Even when I have cellular internet it keeps pausing. Big problem when my trucking company is strict that I don’t use my phone while driving. The commercials on the talk channels have the volume twice as loud.
Worst

This app never works. Yet there’s no alternative. Someone with brains please take over this department
No more on demand content?
by Speedysd98 on 2021/08/21 16:15
This app has given me nothing but trouble. The CarPlay features are sub par, and now, the on demand content has been wiped from the app? That was literally the only thing keeping my subscription to this service.
Podcast failure!
by DJS tunes on 2021/08/21 15:45
This app works great when listening to music but for some reason is total crap when listening to podcasts. It stops playing midway thru most podcast especially older episodes. Happens when either streaming or downloading. The only way to hear more is to restart the whole episode and hope it doesn’t stop again.
Broken again!
by carlmahawkian on 2021/08/21 15:04
All favourite shows are gone. No shows show up in search now. All channel specific content is gone on iOS app. You need to get it together on this mobile experience.
Frustrating
by tomfrye33040 on 2021/08/21 11:48
I find the lengthy delay between the app and the radio extremely annoying and the fact I have to turn the turn start off every time I use the app is also annoying as is “minultem not found” Update. Now the songs don’t update when in car play. Once I load my favorites up the songs don’t change unless I get out of favorites and go back in. It makes terrestrial radio look good

AND… Still freezes
Good, but very glitchy
by cjn1000 on 2021/08/20 16:28
Pro: When it works, it’s great. Sound quality, downloads, pause/resume, 1 hour back, and several other convenience functions are nice. Con: One of the most “connection challenged” apps I’ve ever used, and I’ve used many. There are random—and I mean RANDOM—connection drops (even in ideal conditions, where all other apps are connecting perfectly), some that last a few seconds, some that last hours. Customer service is good about issuing credits for egregious outages, but connectivity issues come close to making this app intolerable.
App still broken
by Voyager29 on 2021/08/19 19:56
Even with the current update they go live button still disappears off screen on multiple devices
Not serious about their service.
by Bobsabin on 2021/08/19 03:17
What a joke this company is. The website and app have simply the worst customer service interface ever created. They actually make you call them and be on hold for 45 minutes just to cancel their rarely working service. AVOID.
Good luck Canceling
by JadedKay on 2021/08/18 14:33
Free trial is a lie. They will do anything but let you cancel. Do not sign up if you do not intend to keep this long term. There is no way to cancel on your own but reps will tell you that over and over. When they do start the process they ask you a thousand unnecessary questions and will disconnect the chat if you don’t respond quick enough. Finally talked to someone who told me there’s no way to stop auto-renew and my best bet is going to be to call right before renewal and cancel.. I’m sure they won’t let me cancel then either. I have a feeling I’ll be charged before they let me cancel and I probably won’t ever see that money again. Very frustrating.
Upgrade made things worse
by Bos57 on 2021/08/17 20:57
With every upgrade this app gets worse. Now you can’t go to a live program. You have to exit the channel then go back into it. It was so much better years ago when you couldRewind slightly to catch things you might’ve missed or listen to programs from earlier in the day. Go back to the way things were 10 years ago. They were much better
Most boring interface ever

Crashes All the Time
by Mr. Spectacular 1 on 2021/08/17 06:51
The app would be fine, except that it crashes all the time. It’s not too time consuming to just restart or refresh it, but it’s been this way for years. It crashes on different devices. You’d think they’d invest in fixing it, but I guess not. If it just didn’t crash all the time (and by all the time I mean several times in a minute some instances) it would be fine. Just fix it already.
Female artist channels non-existent
by Level ransome on 2021/08/16 20:47
I just noticed SiriusXM has ZERO female musicians highlighted with their own channels. All kinds of men and male groups, but women apparently are invisible at SiriusXM. Well, this female’s money is no good there, so I cancelled my long-term subscription today. I urge all female subscribers to do the same. This is disgusting, they don’t even deserve one star.
Songs don’t update in play list
by Grumpusdog on 2021/08/16 18:10
I’ve had SiriusXM for close to 20 years. The app is ok. I just wish that when I was scrolling through my favorites it would show what was currently playing. Not what was playing when I opened the app two hours ago. I mean when I open the channel guide on my tv it shows me what is currently on the other channels not what was on earlier in the day. At least be able to refresh the channel list to show current programming instead of having to close and relaunch the app.
Needs to work on kinks.
by anthony12275 on 2021/08/16 13:37
With each update app gets worse. App seems so busy the way it’s laid out. App also freezes often. Also the older downloads are not available. You would think at this point they would get it right.

App not working

App stopped working yesterday morning. Still unable to log in after deleting and reinstalling app. Sirius XM stated to change password. Same issue.
App will not load

I’m suspecting that there is a conflict between the app and iOS, but the app opens to the logo/blue background but fails to open further. Just started today.
Keeps crashing
by NoFlowersForMeToday on 2021/08/12 11:42
Starting Tuesday, August 10th, the app randomly started buffering, and there’s nothing I can do to get it to start playing again. My phone will show that my wifi connectivity is perfect, but the app still won’t play. It takes a few hours before I’m able to listen again.
Disappointed “Currently” Aug 2021

Crashes…A LOT! And for no good reason…
by RelentLess5150 on 2021/08/12 11:25
This app crashes so much I’m looking for an alternative…not many choices though. No matter if I’m on WiFi or the LTE with FULL BARS, it’ll just stop, crash, and say “Offline.” Not good. I deleted it and then reinstalled and now it won’t even open. 👎🏾👎🏾

Serve a 2nd vehicle for free, or use as a fix for an obstructed antenna
by RV Sciencephile on 2018/06/23 13:55
By purchasing the high end SiriusXM service for one satellite receiver, you get this excellent streaming capability as a free bonus. If you have a smartphone with a decent data plan, you don’t need to increase satellite charges by adding a subscription for the other vehicle(s). Get it for one, then use your phone to stream the web based service thru the Bluetooth or cable connection to the audio system in your additional vehicle(s). It’s a terrific bargain for me, as I have 2 cars and two RV’s, and I can get full channel service for all four with just one subscription. Also, for those with vehicles (like my truck camper) that have difficulty getting a clear usable obstruction-free sat signal for their partially shadowed antenna, you can subscribe to service for the vehicle radio, then when in conditions when your antenna isn’t reliable, switch to using your smartphone for streaming to that radio from the same sat account via cell service providers. Thanks SiriusXM for offering this excellent, flexible service at a fair package price!
Awful, awful app
by JohnnyW34 on 2020/10/28 16:46
The app is awful. From what I’ve read about the app online, and from the many users who expressed the same complaints as me, I have a strong suspicion that the positive ratings on here are fake. Especially given the number of ratings versus the number of subscribers that Sirius has. I’ve had the app for a while now. Like many, I suspect, I only use it to listen to the “Howard Stern Show.” But the various functions on the app that are supposed to enable you to restart the show from scratch if you don’t tuning immediately when Howard begins, well those functions don’t always work. And if you pause the show at any point, and go back to it, more than half the time it does not resume where you left off. Sometimes, it doesn’t even happen after a pause. If you are walking somewhere listening to the show but not in real time, and you walk through a store’s WiFi or something, the play jumps to the live feed. I’ve read that these problems are very common. A lot of people with the app express this same dissatisfaction. I have brought it to the attention of Sirius, only to be told that I should delete the app and re-download it. Their customer service is as bad as their app. Frankly, because I am so reliant on the app to listen, I am strongly considering canceling my subscription altogether.
I Love Channel 90 so I bought Premium Pkg
by RealTennesseeMcCoy on 2020/04/05 16:13
I am huge racing fan and especially L❤️VE NASCAR and LeMann racing fan. I began listening to XM Radio my 2005 BMW X-5 and I’ve had it ever since. Now, SirusXm Radio, Initially, I only listened to channel 90 Nascar Radio. Over years I have listened to ESPN OR Fox SportS during college football season. We have it in all 4 cars and two of the tractors. I had not deeply explored other channels until I begin using the app on my mobile device when I’m mowing in Spring amd Summer 12-16 hours a week. They even have workout music by the decade and most recently added Indy Channel, with hosts, Jack Arute and AJ Allmendinger ! Call and they will negotiate a price with you. Only one warning..if you give a credit card number they will auto renew every year. I did not like that and it took a month for them to understand I would either be billed at home the old fashioned way- or cancel. Auto renew takes away a locked in price. They renew at market price.. which was always double the rate I got when I called or this last period I did online via chat session.
God help you if . . . . . . Update
by Queenbeedlg on 2018/06/01 14:24
Like me, you use your iPad in landscape mode. I’ve changed every relevant setting I can think of to get this app to load in landscape mode (as it once did prior to one of the latest updates) but, alas, to no avail. This is so much of a problem that saving the $20 a month I pay for this service is under serious consideration. It’s too much money to pay for the inconvenience of having to turn my iPad 90 degrees to read the app. I would have given it less than one star had that been possible. Update: I’m happy to report that the people at Sirius were listening and have addressed this landscape vs. portrait mode problem. It’s nice to know that there are still some companies out there who listen to their customer’s complaints and respond to them positively, especially in such a short period of time. Happily, I will not have to cancel my subscription, and I can recommend this app without reservation at a solid 5 stars.
Too many bugs
by DJ Joey G on 2019/09/03 21:23
I have MANY apps on my phone and this one has to be one of the most unreliable. Too many issues to list here but the top two that make me crazy are #1 It stops working randomly mid shows, doesn't matter if its while listening to an on demand episode, a download or live. The app would go into a never ending loading state or just crash completely. #2 the most annoying and dangerous bug is when the app randomly starts playing in my pocket at the worst times. I listen to some XL rated shows with adult language and these shows that i haven't listened to for a few hours or sometimes haven't listened to that day at all will just start playing, full volume, in my pocket. The app is not running so i cant even kill it, i have to frantically turn the volume down then go into my control center and pause it. Its gotten to the point where if i’m going into certain places i have to turn my volume all the way down because i cant trust the app to not start playing, or i need to make sure the last thing i listen to is “safe”....Also when my phone connects to the bluetooth in my vehicles it just starts playing if i want it to or not, again the app isn't even running. Its ridiculous.....
No landscape mode; update horrible for RadioClassics
by PetiteFrog on 2018/06/07 23:02
UPDATE: Thanks for adding the landscape mode back - although why on earth was it removed in the first place??? I have upgraded my rating from 1 star to 3 stars. What would give it one more star - display the times of the previously played RadioClassic shows. I have no idea what played when. You provide the option to listen to earlier shows, but the segments aren’t descriptive enough so I am having to go through all of them to find the show I want to listen to. PREVIOUS REVIEW: As others have stated, not having the ability to view using landscape mode is very annoying. However, not nearly as annoying and useless as what the upgrade has done to the RadioClassics station. Before the update, I could see all the programs that played in the past 5 or 6 hours and select one of those shows - easily. Now —- you can’t see the time a previous show was played and have to guess which item it is in the viewable segments. Viewing all the segments is nearly impossible. No way to easily see and select earlier segments. The upgrade has made the RadioClassics stations impossible to navigate.
CarPlay buggy, no chrome cast support but good sound quality
by Cypherstream on 2018/10/25 02:17
So glad they recently added Apple CarPlay, however it’s very buggy. Many times favorites don’t load, recents may not load, or the car play screen is just blank. It does work better if you unlock your phone first, but who can do that if your driving and have your phone put down (it auto locks fairly quickly). What is wrong with SiriusXM not offering chromecast functionality? It seems this would be the easiest way to get SXM in your house. To be able to chrome cast SXM would be a great asset to listen at home when doing household work. Other than the very buggy CarPlay support and lack of Chromecast feature, the sound quality is far better than what you get on the actual satellite. You also have access to many more channels and on demand content. This is why I prefer to use the app via CarPlay instead of my cars built in XM tuner. My car only goes up to channels in the 200’s. The app has channels into the 700’s! I’m no longer missing out on Faction or the Emo Project, indie 1.0, or Rock Bar. If only CarPlay worked all the time, this would be a killer app.
Favorites won’t save & keep getting deleted
by Food Jock on 2020/06/18 20:38
Does Sirius even read these user reviews and care about customer service? For 2 months all my favorites keep getting deleted. Lately it seems to occur almost daily, sometimes even twice in a day. Before that it had been every couple weeks. I’ve seen other reviews claiming the same thing. Do you even read the user reviews? Last month I even sent a Feedback email to tech support reporting the issue and was given a response that they will reply back within 24 hrs. Nope. Nothing. Not even a follow up. And meanwhile, the problem has gotten worse and it’s very time consuming to constantly go back & forth re adding shows to the favorites list. In addition, 3 times in the past week and as recently as last night, I haven’t been able to access anything because the app keeps saying “we’re sorry but you seem to be offline. Please check your WiFi connection or try again later.” There’s been absolutely nothing wrong with my internet & WiFi. This used to be my favorite app and I use it daily mostly for MLB Radio. But lately this app has been horrible and I’m paying too much money for an annual subscription to put up with this crap.
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
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!
Mobile app doesn’t update songs on Sirius VM channels
by ILoveFirstWave33 on 2021/09/07 19:54
When I open the SiriusXM mobile app on my iPhone running iOS 14.7.1 (this issue has been happening for the last year and before release of iOS 14) when i see a song title i like on a particular station, i select it and listen to the song, if the next song played isn't for me, i look for a new song title on a different station…”This is when the PROBLEMS start”…all the stations showing songs that are currently being played, ARE NOT the songs being played when you select that channel !?! This happens everyday when i use the mobile app on my cell phone while using home wifi or my Sprint mobile data plan…my husband has the same cell/same iOS, but with TMobile…and has exact same issues. The only way to correct this glitch, you need to get out of the mobile app and then re-launch/log back into the SiriusXM app on your cell, so the mobile app refreshes the channels. Can you please fix this!! It’s very frustrating…thx, customer since 2013
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.
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.
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.
Great once you you can get what they promise.

I have loved having SiriusXM. I received it as a gift from my daughter so I could listen to baseball. With it, I can hear our beloved Cleveland Indians from my home in New England. (We lived in northeast Ohio for 17 years.). Problem was it took days and several calls to get what my daughter paid for. The station I needed didn’t come in on my radio and it seemed to be quite a problem to get it to work. Worse yet, my husband on a totally different account tried to add the Indians station, and while SiriusXM was quick to charge him for the extra station, they failed to let him know that for some reason his brand new car had the wrong type of radio to get the higher stations. (He already has a basic XM radio package, so still have no clue what the issue was.) The reps that help are very nice, but it should be as easy to get the stations you are looking for, as it is for the XM folk to take your money.
Can’t sign in
by teaboneski on 2020/04/02 01:03
I’ve been using this app for years and there are always issues. The current one (and it’s kind of a big one) is that I can’t get passed the login screen. I’ve been trying to log in since March 11th, when I was logged out randomly (which happens occasionally with most subscription apps, so no big deal). Today is April 1, and I still haven’t been able to log in. I know my credentials, so that’s not the problem. I can still log into my account on the web, it’s just the mobile app I can’t sign into. I type in my credentials and the SiriusXM logo pops up and loads indefinitely. I’ve reached out to support (phone and email) but it’s impossible getting in touch right now, which is understandable in the current circumstances. I get it, I just don’t want to be paying for something I can’t use. You also can’t cancel your account without speaking to a representative. As stated above, that’s nearly impossible right now. And there’s no online option to cancel. Not sure what to do at this point.
Sometimes it works
by Thome258 on 2019/11/06 13:06
This app has to be the worst app for issues. Sometimes it works fine then they update it and it never fails that it causes issues. If you email customer service you get the same response every time. They tell you to delete the app and reinstall it. I don’t want to have to do that at least once a month because then I lose all the shows I’ve downloaded . I don’t have unlimited data so I like that I can download the shows I’ve missed onto the app to listen to in the car. I just wish it was more consistent and didn’t have an issue every time they put out an update. Right now the issue is that if I stop listening to a show and go back to it later it will restart from the beginning and not where I left off. Then I have to try to figure out where I was. I wish they’d add a forward button that only went like 20 seconds instead of having to either forward past a whole segment or slide to another part of the show but not knowing where you’ll end up stopping.
Free at Last!
by Fadiddle on 2019/07/18 00:49
With all the other great providers of streaming music that are free out there, this was the best thing they could have done. We are already paying for the service, and requiring additional payment like it was before for the streaming service, you turned many people away. Not just from streaming but from your service altogether. That would be like my internet service saying I had to pay for service on each device that was connected to the same service, I was already paying for. Glad y’all were able to buy pandora and work it out for us(the paying customers) to enjoy your service the way it should be; “Anyway we want to enjoy it, Anywhere we want to enjoy it.” Keep doing business like this, and you’ll not only have me as a loyal customer, but many, many more!
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.
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.
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.
Garbage App
by THE-MACHINE on 2021/07/16 17:34
This app is complete garbage, it will constantly stop playing rendering it completely useless. I have been a customer for over 15 years and can honestly say, the customer service has become dismal. I called to get technical support, it was answered by someone who spoke English poorly and was hard to understand. I was then transferred to their “Advanced Technical Support” and again was answered by another person who didn’t speak clear English l. But, as a bonus, this person was obviously reading from a script and began asking questions the had nothing to do with solving the problem. I had made it clear that I was calling from the very phone the app was on, this individual asked me several times to attempt to access a channel on the app. I explained about 5 times that I can not play the application and talk on the phone simultaneously. After the 5th time of exposing this, I eventually said this was a waste of time and hung up. With out resolving my issue, I’m now here, extremely frustrated. If you’re expecting good service, think again.
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.
Very slow to start playing
by Straight Answers on 2021/02/18 19:39
While I love the Sirius stations, the mobile app is problematic. Whereas Pandora almost never has any issues starting up and playing whether on WiFi or not, Sirius is horrible! 9 times out of 10 when I want to start listening I tap the station I want, from my favorites, and the little play arrow turns into a circle that spins for a very long time. Like, some days it does that for hours without ever playing. Yes, I have uninstalled and reinstalled the app. Yes I have closed the app and reopened. That has never changed anything. It is still very much a pain and very unreliable as to whether I will actually get to listen to anything via the app. On average I’d say it takes 15 -20 minutes to get it to start playing. This is regardless of whether I am in my office right by my wifi modem or out on 5g service. Just as problematic either way. Find out how Pandora is so reliable and do that, please. Otherwise, I won’t renew when this subscription expires.
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

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.
Ok but crowded
by DocMagi on 2020/11/16 19:45
At a point an app can become crowded and more complicated than needed. This app is one of them and less would be better. It plays music and videos but because of the clutter the main purpose of the app is lacking. Tried using it on the Apple TV but that is silly because whoever designed the app apparently has never used the Apple TV app or just likes pretty pictures. Deleting it off the tv because it simply freezes up and is worthless. The phone app works but again simple is better with less clutter and less bandwidth required to load and run. Actually you seem to be going in the wrong direction especially considering how expensive your service is compared to better streaming services. When Pandora comes with a car radio I imagine your subscriptions with decline a great deal. Shame that your service is worse and your prices increase.
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
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.
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!
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.

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.
Terrible
by Keeper007 on 2021/03/02 19:09
Unfortunately, this app (for me at least) is riddle with problems. It actually does ok if you are listening to something live, but becomes very problematic when trying to go back and listen to past programs. It constantly says “Trying to recover audio”. When trying to skip past the commercial, it will skip all the way to the live portion of the channel. Then you have to start the show back over and TRY and skip forward to where you left off. If there was another option than using this app, I would totally be all for it. Unfortunately if you want to listen outside of the car or play past shows, be prepared for a potential headache. This company is way to main stream to have an app that is this terrible. Just my opinion and I hope they finally update the app to something that worked more often than it doesn’t. Especially if you are going back to listen to past show.
Love the app, but needs a playback speed option for OnDemand
by Poo ln a Cup on 2019/10/12 16:20
I really wish there was a playback speed option for OnDemand. I listen almost exclusively to SXM talk & comedy OnDemand, but I miss a lot of episodes of shows that I love and have listened to for years. The problem with so much good content is finding time to listen to it all. I could listen to more episodes if I could play shows at speeds of 1.25x, 1.5x, etc. Aside from that, this version of the app is great. I’ve been a loyal subscriber for well over 10 years and most of that has been using the app (iOS) or online subscriptions. Developers have really paid attention to what subscribers want and this version has way less crashing than ever before and now with videos and the AppleTV app, it is a total game changer for the platform.
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.
