Clear Channel’s iHeartRadio released today version 5.0 of its Android app with a new section for deeper recommendations of radio stations. The related iOS update is scheduled for release next week.

The new “For You” personalization service suggests stations based on location, genre, and music you previously listened to and liked. iHeartRadio has also rebuilt its search functionality in order to make it faster.
