No FM radio

My Samsung Galaxy S21 is missing the FM radio feature advertised by Samsung. Please enable it.

That's on Samsung. I wasn't one to use FM radio, but this thread had me curious since I use an unlocked S20 aka not a Verizon phone.

The default Samsung radio app isn't anywhere. I tried using nextradio and that doesn't work. After looking online, people had radio working fine until an update from One UI 2.5 to 3.0 disabled it. This is my first and last Samsung product I will use. Their official forum doesn't show any signs of doing anything.

I like listening to the radio too. I want to ensure I help as much as I can. Did you check to see if it available to download in the Samsung store? -AmberF_VZW

I am happy to help you get your FM radio working, Doggo. If you have this available in your device, you can dowload an app to access it, but this requires headphones to be plugged in as the antenna. If the device does not have a headphone jack, this option may not be available. Were you able to find an application to download?

Nextradio says

"FM radio is unavailable

We'd like to bring you local FM radio, bit NextRadio doesn't have access to the FM radio in your device. Let your wireless carrier know that you'd like to listen to free FM radio or your phone with NextRadio!"

Iceykitsune, were there any recent changes to your device? Do you have the latest software installed on your phone?
