Question [Q] ? enable FM Radio on G3

Back long ago, I had a Motorola E815 flip phone.

It had an FM radio.
My DROIDx had an FM radio.
My Thunderbolt had an FM radio.

Our Gym broadcasts audio for the TVs over FM radio.

I've just received the G3.
Is there an app or combination of apps or hacks that can take me back 10 years to plug in the wired headset and tune the station?

thanks!

Works fine with the build in app, at least for me, are you sure you have the international variant?
Another option would be spirit fm, worked fine for me on the s3 on aosp roms which had no fm support out of the box, but if you don't have the d855 you won't have the hardware for it, so it also won't work.

Current Device

That is the issue. I'm on verizon and i think they disabled the radio as they have done in the past.
