BBC Sounds provides a fresh way to listen to BBC audio with all your favorite programs, podcasts, radio stations, and music, available in one convenient place. With this app, you can explore a diverse range of new podcasts, music mixes, and live sets, listen live to BBC radio stations, and catch up on or replay your favorite BBC radio shows.

Features of BBC Sounds include the ability to listen live to all BBC Radio stations, pause and rewind live radio, see past and future station schedules, download and listen to your shows on the go, continue listening from where you left off on any device, subscribe to BBC podcasts, mixes, and programs, see the latest episodes from your favorite programs and podcasts in one list, get personalized recommendations to discover new audio content, and more.

BBC Sounds also offers a sleep timer and supports Google Talkback as an accessibility service. However, when using the Android Auto enabled version, users must ensure safe driving practices at all times.

This app tracks user listening history and interaction with the app, and collects device information such as device type and OS version. Personal data such as unique identifier and BBC Account data may also be collected for reporting purposes.

To protect user privacy, BBC Sounds provides the option to “opt out” from tracking by filling out the “Forget My Device” form.

By installing BBC Sounds, users agree to the BBC’s Terms of Use and Privacy Policy. BBC Media Applications Technologies Limited is the publisher of this app and a wholly-owned subsidiary of the British Broadcasting Corporation.
