    If you mean the FM transmitter, that is a hardware feature, and as such it is either built-in in a device or not.

    I am not sure what you mean.
    We can probably agree that the Nokia Lumia 1020 and 1520 are flagship devices. Opening their specification pages, https://developer.nokia.com/Devices/...ns/Lumia_1020/ and https://developer.nokia.com/Devices/...ns/Lumia_1520/ reveals no FM transmitter feature in any of the two. Of course it may happen that it is present in some other Lumia model(s), but it is certainly not a platform feature.

    EDIT: I managed to craft a search for FM transmitter enabled devices: https://developer.nokia.com/search/s...fm_transmitter - no Lumia models are listed.

    It's possible that he's referring to the capability of the Qualcomm SoCs that are used in the Lumias. Those have the digital side of the functionality covered (FM-Transmitter and FM-Receiver). However it's unlikely that the analog components that would be required are in the devices and so far no tear-down has revealed any such hardware so I'd pretty much assume that there is no way to get this working with existing hardware. Given how many devices nowadays support A2DP Bluetooth streaming I would not count on the capability being a priority.
