New developments indicate that the SiriusXM application on Android is currently down and not working for most users.
Complaints of the application not working have begun flooding Twitter and other social media platforms. We’ve listed a few reports for reference below.

Based on reports, it seems that the SiriusXM app for Android stopped working properly a couple of days ago.
Some users claim that the app keeps buffering while others say that the application does not work at all and keeps shutting down by itself.
A few disgruntled Android users have even made their way over the Google Play Store to leave negative reviews on the SiriusXM app.
Naturally, having to pay for a service and then be unable to use it for a couple of days would grind anyone’s gears.
Thankfully, the truckloads of complaints haven’t gone unnoticed by the SiriusXM team since they’ve been responding to several user complaints stating that they’re aware of the issue and are working on a fix.
While the issue has been officially acknowledged, SiriusXM support has not shared any specific details as to when it will be fixed.
As usual, we will post an update once new details emerge. Feel free to drop a comment and let us know if the problem has been fixed for you.
