About Stargrid Communications, Inc

Newsbeat delivers short audio summaries of news stories, aggregated from thousands of websites and newspapers, and personalized to each individual user. Users simply turn it on, and listen to personalized news playlists in a lean-back experience while they drive, exercise or go about their work day.

Increasing number of automakers are building connected cars with in-dash telematics systems, enabling drivers to listen to personalized streaming audio content through apps that are built specifically for in-car listening experience. Newsbeat services are tailored to stream audio news to these drivers unlike the broadcast radio tuners in the car.

Our news stories are curated from hundreds of sources – online blogs, traditional news outlets, financial data, weather, traffic, local and live audio streams. This gives our listeners a comprehensive coverage of topics and geographically relevant content.

Our audio streaming services are available on various platforms ranging from smartphones, smart vehicle infotainment systems, social media sites and wearables.
