    Maybe you know Microsoft removed the FM Radio app back in may, but with the last insiders updates, I am not able to open any FM app (I tested 5 of them, and even resetting my phone didn't change anything).

    It's look like their drop the API, that was added in Windows Phone 8.

    Maybe they really want to drop FM, or there are building the FMRadio class for Windows 10!

    How popular of a feature is the FM radio? With the availability of dedicated music playing apps like Groove Music, Pandora, Spotify, etc do we really need FM radio? And then of course there is TuneIN Radio which lets you play FM, AM, and even HD radio stations from all over the planet! You can download it at the Microsoft store...

    Well, a lot of people use FM. I buy a WP because of this. It costs nothing, and it's more reliable than web service. To specify, my local station does not offer good internet quality.

    And it does not answer my question...

    I'm honestly suspecting some underlying bug since you're on an Insider build where things can be slightly or very messy behind the scenes.

    Microsoft removed the built in FM App. After which 3rd party FM Apps still provided function. I'm on Official and have FM radio right now via the 3rd party Windows FM Radio App.

    I agree with xandros9. It's likely a bug in the Insider build.

    Try a Soft Reset (hold the Volume Down + Power until the phone vibrates and reboots). Hard Reset may be drastic for this. You might have to wait for the next build to sort it out.

    Nothing change about that. But it's seems like it is not specific to FM apps but to app that give music (Spotify, for example).

    Just wondering, what app are you using?
