Is it possible to listen to FM radio via Pixel 2 devices?

It is possible on many devices, and on some it requires headphone jack.
Since Pixel 2 doesn't have one, I'd like to ask if it's possible to use the standard FM radio on the smartphone.
Maybe via an app (that doesn't require Internet connection, of course) ?

This can be useful in emergency cases, when Internet is not available or in bad quality.
Can also be useful in normal cases, when the current radio stations are just fine for normal usage.

It's also more battery friendly, and can be used for free.
In a time of crisis, such as an earthquake, when there is no good cellphone reception, this can be crucial.

That's too bad.
Why is it this way, that such a good device is missing many key hardware features that exist on a lot, if not most devices?
I'm talking about: IR, sd card, removable battery, headphone jack...
What made it have such high price? 

Some of the hardware feature could be useful for developers too, such as the IR and sd-card slot (useful to test the APIs of them), so it would make sense to add them. I just don't get why on every year, Google insist not to add those to Nexus/Pixel devices.
Don't you agree?
