    After FM was removed I have been looking for an app to replace it. But most apps don't have the speaker functionality. Does anyone know any app that has this feature?

    I wish there were one. A few days ago I was looking for a decent replacement with RDS and option to use speaker as well. Couldn't find any FM Radio app with these features.

    The one called "FM Radio" can do it.

    Says it is unavailable. But many have posted reviews in the past month.

    Maybe it is unavailable in your region. Try changing your region and checking again.

    maybe the app has been taken down permanently as recently Microsoft has taken down approximately 100,000 apps from store due to the developers not including the age rating to it.

    I contacted one of FM radio developers, and he told me that Microsoft API's don't support Radio through loud speaker.

    Holy cow you are correct!
    The app is misleading! When you go to the settings of the app it has a loudspeaker option, but when you click it, it takes you to a website saying it can't do it. WTF

    I did some more searching around, I am a programmer too. It looks like there is an API for choosing where to output sound, but it only works with VOIP calls. However, it looks like you can tell the OS "Yeah this is a VOIP call trust me *wink* *wink*" and then it will work with generic audio.

    I guess radio app developers haven't done this so far. I could try this when I have time in a few weeks.

    Edit: The only problem till now, though, is that W10M UWP APIs still don't have access to the radio I think. Thus, you'd have to target WP8 or something like that to be able to make an app with radio access. Maybe (hopefully) voting on user feedback will help...

    This is more a quick and dirty fix, and not what you want but could get you through......

    Go to Walmart and buy a cheap speaker that has a fairly long 3.5 mm patch cable ( as cable is antenna ). I use Radio FM + an under $10 speaker.

    Not the fix you want but was the only fix I could find short of learning how to code

    I now connect it to a speaker which i had at home. I use the radio fm tune app. A pretty neat app. Shows the signal strength and all.
