Your cellphone doesn't have an FM radio feature? Want to know why? Here are some reasons why FM radio has been removed from today's smartphones.

Along with the emergence of various new technologies on smartphone devices, apparently this condition has also eliminated of legendary features on cellphone, including an FM radio feature.

If in past this feature was never absent from smartphone vendors in their products, now majority of latest smartphone releases actually no longer carry this feature.

So, what exactly is reason that makes this FM radio feature no longer present in latest smartphones today?

Had become one of the legendary features on cellphone which was finally eliminated, of course there are several reasons behind this decision. Want to know anything? Here's my take on some of reasons why radio feature is missing on most of today's latest smartphones.

I think main reason is because now internet connection is very easy to access. It is undeniable that emergence of an internet connection has been able to change various things, including habits of internet users.

If in past television, newspapers, and radio were some of media that many people really needed to get information, now cause presence of internet, everything can be obtained easily anytime and anywhere as you like. In fact, because internet and social media platforms in it also make television world that used to be busy now becomes empty of viewers.

Therefore, as it becomes easier for someone to access internet, it is not too surprising that radio feature, which used to be a mainstay feature on most cellphones, is now finally removed from cellphones.

Next reason may still be related to internet connection, namely emergence of several platforms that make it easy to play music, listen to news and other conveniences that can be accessed via smartphones.

Not only as a medium for latest information, on radio we are also sometimes entertained by various kinds of song titles which are usually requests from listeners. It is considered capable of providing interesting musical entertainment, therefore in past not a few people deliberately opened radio applications to just listen to songs.

Unfortunately, radio feature no longer looks attractive since emergence of various music streaming applications such as Spotify, Joox, and others that offer songs from abroad and various music genres.

With increasing number of music streaming applications as well as various game applications as well as social media that offer more interesting functions, this of course affects number of radio application enthusiasts that is decreasing.

In fact, at this time maybe only a few people still use radio applications and that's usually because cellphones they use are still old school so there is no other entertainment that can be obtained from their cellphones.

Seeing fact that the number of enthusiasts for radio applications on cellphone is decreasing every year, it is therefore not surprising that finally cellphone vendors see radio applications as a feature that they no longer need to present. Evidently, currently most of latest cellphone releases, especially flagship cellphones, no longer have FM radio applications in them.

Well, those were some of the reasons why FM radio feature was finally lost or intentionally omitted in most smartphones today. If you think that FM radio feature on latest smartphone is important right now, isn't it?

Here in our country, radio is still in trend and it is good to know that some Dj's are still able to keep on trend. Maybe it just depends on every country innovation.

I guess you're right. Here in my country, some phones do not have access to an internet connection. That kind of phone needs radio to keep them aware of what's going on in the country
