iHeartRadio today announced that it plans to release an Android Wear app on October 15th. The company, which recently rebranded from Clear Channel to iHeartMedia, says that the app will support all current Android Wear devices.

The iHeartRadio Android Wear app does more than simply show notifications, as it allows users to control the volume of their current station and give songs a thumbs up or thumbs down. Users will also be able to control their stations by using their voice.

For those unfamiliar, iHeartRadio allows users to stream a variety of online content, including music and radio stations. Users can stream more than 800 Clear Channel stations with the service, in addition to creating personal stations based on specific genres and bands.

The full feature list is as follows:

  • Voice Search ­- Listen to more than 1,900 live radio stations or create your own based on a library of more than 450,000 artists by simply saying “Z100” or “Rihanna”
  • Favorites ­- Quick access to view and play saved stations or shows
  • For You – Browse tailored recommendations based on specific music preferences and listening habits
  • Thumbs Up / Thumbs Down – Provide on the spot feedback to tailor future music recommendations, plus enjoy the ability to scan live stations across the country

The Android Wear iHeartRadio app will be available on October 15th for free.
