The world's greatest desktop music player may be experiencing a rebirth soon. It will still have all the fixes to allow the app to function properly in Windows 10.
Nothing actually happened after that, though, and the dream seemed dead-until last month, when a Winamp 5.8 beta leaked online.
The legendary music player Winamp is finally getting its much-needed makeover for its return next year. This special spot will be specifically geared towards Android and iOS users. The company wants to earn back its fans loyalty, so the original desktop app is going to get updated as well.
"It will be a completely new version, taking into account the heritage of Winamp, but with the possibility to obtain a richer listening experience", - quotes the edition of TechCrunch, Radionomy CEO Alexander Saboundjian. But Winamp 6, the one that acts as a hub for all your listening needs, is set to grace mobile devices sometime in 2019.
But Winamp is making a comeback.
It must be noted that all these apps like Spotify, Google Music, etc. have their own apps, so Radionomy will have to provide a better incentive to convince users to try Winamp 6.
However, the company did not fully disclose further details of the new version. The question now is whether software like Winamp music player still has its place in the landscape today. But turning Winamp into a universal player for all things audio is just one side of the medal.
What led to the downfall of Winamp?
Remember Winamp? It was one of the first platforms for digital music and was big in the early nineties.
One app in mind that already does this with competing streaming services is Sonos' Controller app, but that's only so you can play audio on the brand's wireless speakers, rather than natively on your device. Something else that contributed to its fall was that it wasn't made available officially on mobile platforms.
The official version 5.8 release is coming this 18 October.
"Users of Winamp are everywhere". This is a huge number. It has a strong community.
It has been reported that Winamp still has over hundred million monthly active users, most of which reside outside the US. "This is not the case". If Winamp could move into that space, it would immediately improve the ecosystem.
