Clip Activates FM Chip On More Phones


Clip Interactive announced that the FM chip listening option has been expanded to four more mobile devices. In addition to the HTC One M8, consumers who own the HTC One M9, HTC Desire 610, Sharp Aquos Crystal, and LG G3 will now be able to listen to local FM radio via the FM chip and the Clip Interactive app, with no data streaming. Clip Interactive's ability to pick up radio stations will only work in the select markets that the company is monitoring. The FM chip is activated by the wireless carrier through support in the specific Android build for a phone.

Clip Interactive's Chief Technology Officer Peter Shoebridge said: "Activating the FM chip on more devices benefits the listener as they can reduce data usage and enjoy the real-time broadcast. The industry can expect more announcements about additional devices in the coming weeks as we continue our mission to provide interactive radio to the masses."
