Winamp Music Player Will Make Its Comeback In 2019

Winamp is being updated and reimagined as an audio app for mobile

The last time Winamp was updated was in 2013, when it was then owned by AOL.

According to TechCrunch, the player that was once synonymous with playing fake Weird Al parodies and mistagged Metallica songs from Napster will be back and better than ever in 2019.

"What I see today is you have to jump from one player to another player or aggregator if you want to listen to a radio station, to a podcast player if you want to listen to a podcast - this, to me, is not the final experience", said Radionomy CEO Alexandre Saboundjian. This new version will let you play music which you already have, but also to the cloud, to the podcast, to streaming radio stations and also to your playlist. Saboundjian said that he wants to make Winamp available on every device.

Radionomy CEO Alexandre Saboundjian told TechCrunch that before the big Winamp 2019 release date, they plan to release a minor update on October 18 in the form of Winamp 5.8.

When it comes to Winamp 6, there is no much to say, so we can only hope that a Windows version will come as well. Remember, when you load sounds on your small USB key that was MP3 player, in general you're using Winamp to do it.

Saboundjian hasn't revealed how exactly the app will extract audio media from various sources such as Google Music, Spotify playlists and Audible audiobooks.

Revamped Winamp 6 to launch next year with new experience for computing devices.

To review, Winamp was initially possessed by Nullsoft, the company that later sold to AOL in 1999.

However, the company did not fully disclose further details of the new version. Though some unofficial versions of Winamp reached fans on Android, it wasn't enough. The number is huge. As TechCrunch puts it, Winamp will be "a platform-agnostic mobile audio app that brings together all your music, podcasts and streaming services to a single location". "We have a really strong and important community". But everybody "knows" that Winamp is dead, that we don't work on it any more. Or you can get the official non-leaked version 5.8 that should come out anytime this week (most probably on the 18th).
