The S8 doesn't have an FM radio.

 

It's a dead feature seeing as you can just download Tune in or radio apps to listen for free. Etc.

@Cawts  Use the search bar to  find the app and if one is not found then it doesn't have a FM radio in it.

Re: S8 fm radio

It is far from a dead feature, the trouble is tunein etc only work if you have a strong mobile signal and it uses your data allowance, which is not very helpful if you are in a rural area.

I was under the impretion that the S8 has the radio chip fitted and it was up to the network to activate it.

@Cawts  It's not fitted with one.  Read THIS and go look at comms.

As with many Samsung devices they differ from Region to region.

 

The European model doesn't come with an FM radio.

 

It has been rumoured that they will be releasing a US model (in USA Canada etc) which comes with an FM radio.

 

I love in the rural countryside of Oxfordshire and regularly travel back home to the more so rural area of Hereford (more people love in Gloucester City than the county of Hereford)

 

I stream Chris Country DAB app constantly whilst I'm driving and have no issues with signal.
