Yandex Radio is a music streaming service, an online radio station from Yandex that broadcasts music, depending on the user’s tastes. Yandex Radio Online allows users to independently select a genre, era, occupation, mood to select musical works played on the air of a virtual radio station.
Yandex Radio is a streaming (streaming) broadcasting service, unlike music radio stations such as Avtoradio, Russian Radio, Retro FM, etc., which broadcast a software product created at a particular station. Yandex Radio is a virtual radio station on which the user independently forms what he will listen to, depending on his preferences and interests.
Yandex provides a huge selection of music: more than 100 music channels and a library of more than 20 million pieces of music are available to users. The music channels contain collections of playlists by genre, mood, occupation, era. The Yandex.Radio service is closely related to the Yandex.Music music service, from where you can also go to the radio. Yandex Radio uses tracks from Yandex Music on the air.
Features of Yandex Radio
The closest analogue of the Yandex Radio service is the Pandora (radio) music streaming service, available only to users from the United States. In Russia, there is a somewhat similar service Zvooq (Sound).
To listen to Yandex Radio based on your preferences and interests, it is recommended to register on this online service. Register on the service using your Yandex account from email. Registration in Yandex Radio is available through social networks (VKontakte, Facebook, Odnoklassniki, Twitter, My World Mail@Ru).
After registering with Yandex Radio, based on your listening history, your personal unique radio station will be generated that matches your musical tastes. A registered user directly influences the broadcast of music, approving or, conversely, disapproving of the compositions that sound on the air, independently forming the broadcast of the station.
Of course, no one forbids listening to Yandex Radio for free without registering on the service, just in this case, the music will be less in line with your preferences or interests. The process of forming a choice of user interests is somewhat reminiscent of a similar function in Yandex Zen .
Yandex Radio has a paid subscription, in which the user will receive the following benefits:
- lack of advertising in Yandex.Radio and Yandex.Music (the subscription is the same for both services);
- higher quality music sound.
When used free of charge, short audio commercials are sometimes broadcast between the played musical compositions. I don’t think it bothers most listeners.
Yandex Radio is available not only as an online service that can be listened to on a computer; for Android and iOS mobile operating systems, you can download the Yandex Radio application from the Google Play Market or the App Store.
Using the Yandex Radio online service is practically no different from using the versions of the application for mobile devices, the differences are only in the features of the PC interface and the mobile device.
In this article, I made an overview of the Yandex Radio online service. The service requires constant access to the Internet.

Launch your personal station (“On your wave”) in order to listen to Yandex Radio hits. In the central part of the service page, the cover of the album of the piece of music played on the air is displayed, in the darkened areas, the covers are displayed: on the left – the sounded composition, on the right – the next track.
When you move the mouse cursor over the sounded track, and then click on it, the broadcast history opens. The user can restart playback of one or another track that has already sounded on the air.
If you move the mouse cursor over the next track, and then click on it, the playback of this song will start without waiting for the current track to end. Thus, the transition between compositions is carried out if the next piece of music needs to be broadcast.
Click on the button with three dots to listen to a track on Yandex Music, share a track with friends, or share a station. This option is available to registered users.
On the Yandex Music service, other works by this artist are available for listening.
