There are over 250 pre-set stations to choose from, and users can create their own stations by simply entering the name of a favorite artist or song.

Genius Shuffle is another new 11.1 feature, providing a way to hear songs that “go great together.” Each click of the Genius Shuffle button starts up a fresh shuffle of tunes so you can hear something new.
