Christmas Radio

  • Price: Free to download

  • Android version: 4.1+

Many of you still like to listen to the radio, and what better way to get into the Christmas spirit, than to listen to Christmas-y content. Well, there is an app in the Play Store called "Christmas Radio", and it allows you to stream online Christmas radio stations. There are a number of stations included on the list, like, for example: 181.FM – Christmas Mix, Xmas in Frisko: SomaFM, The Christmas Lounge, Christmas Rocks!, and many more.

This radio will be able to provide you with the sound even if you're not in the app. You can continue using your phone while this app is running in the background, without a problem. You can even turn off the display, and the app will continue streaming, but be aware, your phone may kill it in the background. Streaming online content is usually more battery-heavy than your phone would have liked, so it has a tendency to kill such apps, in which case the streaming will stop.

You can take steps to prevent this, of course. You can lock this app in the background, in one way or the other. It all depends on what phone you have, and what software is installed on it. In any case, this app looks very nice, it's really easy to use, and it's free to use. Do note that ads are a part of the experience, though.
