Odio – A Beautiful Modern Radio Streaming App

Open Source Radio Streaming App
Written by Martins Okoi

Odio is a new, free, and beautiful source software for streaming radio stations. It has an intuitive UI that resembles that of Spotify with a search field that sits in the top navigation bar for accessibility.

The main app window is the Home tab which lists radio station suggestions as “Featured“. You can filter the listed radio stations by “Top Click” and “Highest Voted“.

Apart from using the search field, you can search for radio stations by countries, languages, and tags.

Features in Odio

  • Beautiful, clean User Interface.
  • Free to use.
  • Available for download on GNU/Linux, Mac, and Windows.
  • Closed source.
  • Search for stations by countries, languages, and tags.
  • Light and dark theme.
  • Save stations to the library.

Odio is in beta stage since it was first released in October. Shortly over a month later, the Linux version has been released, “Quick Play” has been added to list view, and social icons have been added, besides several bug fixes. This is indicative that Odio is here to stay – especially since it looks more modern than many alternative titles out there.


Odio is free but not open source. That not withstanding, it is available in the snap store so you can easily download it and check it out for yourself.
