Does the Pixel provide over the air FM reception?

I use the FM reception at the gym and while riding my bike so I want to make sure I don't lose FM over the air reception with a new phone.

Hey Kevin, unfortunately the Pixel can not be used as a FM radio.

Kevin:  All modern smart phones have an FM tuner embedded.  However, cell carriers in various countries do not allow it to be used as they want you to use data they sell you to access radio via internet.  There are growing lobbys in various countries trying to get this changed for public safety reasons.  See these articles on the topic:
