SiriusXM is adding some new features to its Internet Radio app for Android, bringing it to parity with the iOS update it released back in December. The new version will let you listen to broadcasts from up to five hours in the past, and start playing the current song from the beginning, on the off chance your decision to listen to music didn't coincide with a momentary gap between songs. The app also adds Show Finder, SiriusXM’s programming guide, which lets you set alerts for upcoming programming. The free update is available now from Google Play, but it won't do you much good without a SiriusXM subscription. Right now the company is offering a no-credit-card-required one-week free trial for its $14.99-a-month Internet Radio service ($3.50 if you already have an All Access or Premier subscription), if you want to try before you buy.
