SiriusXM has been working on a Windows 10 app since December of 2015. Not much was known about the app, but fast forward to 2016 and we now know the company is beta testing the app right now, meaning that the SiriusXM app could find its way to Windows 10 devices sooner rather than later.
The SiriusXM app is part of the Universal Windows Platform, which means it will be available for Windows 10 desktop and Windows 10 Mobile as well.
If you’re a SiriusXM subscriber, the company will be sending out beta invitations, so keep an eye out for that. It is not yet clear if every subscriber will be invited, but the most important thing here is that the official launch of the app isn’t too far away. Then again, it all depends on how well the beta testing goes.
Here’s what SiriusXM had to say:
We are establishing a select group of listeners to help us test our Windows 10 app before it is released to all subscribers. We’d like to invite you to be a part of this testing experience. You will gain advance access to the latest versions of the app and have the opportunity to help shape the future of SiriusXM’s Windows 10 streaming experience.
SiriusXM is one of the most popular US-based satellite radio services around. Its popularity has risen in recent years due to the Howard Stern show, its flagship program of sorts.
With Windows 10 now being the most popular Windows operating system in the United States, we expect more companies to port their apps to the Windows Store to take advantage of what users want, and to give them something they never knew they would have needed in the first place.
