Customer Reviews

Love SomaFM but please let me disable “now playing” popup

I have to edit my previous review where I complained about the new SomaFM notifications. I figured out how to disable them (under system settings, notifications!). All good now, 5 stars!


Please bring back the icons to the Soma FM desktop app!

It’s really annoying to have to read the names of all of the stations before I can choose the one that I want to select.

In the past I would just scan the unique icons for each station to quickly pick the one that I wanted.

Other than that, I love what this service has done for my work life, stuck in a cubicle all day :)
