How To Use FM Radio On Sony Xperia Z

Learn how to use FM Radio on your Sony Xperia Z. The FM radio in your phone works like any FM radio. For example, you can browse and listen to FM radio stations and save them as favorites. You must connect a wired headset or headphones to the phone before you can use the radio. This is because the headset or headphones act as an antenna. After one of these devices is connected, you can then switch the radio sound to the phone speaker, if desired.
