Those who haven’t ever heard about Winamp as one of the most popular media players are probably living in cages. If you have a computer, then you should be familiar with Winamp. If you have a digital device, then you must know the name. You can enjoy the features as well as expecting the new arrivals and updates in 2019.
Winamp Overall Good and Bad
If you want to enjoy videos and music, this tool is basically included in the essential entertainment tools that you can find easily (and also free) in every system. Of course, there are some great benefits to enjoy from it.
For a starter, you can enjoy a wide array of plug-ins availability. This will definitely boost your entertainment enjoyment to the highest level. The navigation is also simple and easy – and you will deal with flawless operation. Moreover, you can also enjoy easy streaming, format conversion, and also disc burning.
On the negative note, Winamp hasn’t made any updates recently which are a bugger. And the lack of auto-tagging is also a serious downside, especially in this modern era. If you don’t want to be left behind, you should enable the tagging feature.
This app is basically like a one-stop library for music and entertainment. But it is more than just a library – it is your source of entertainment. You can sync the collections to a smartphone or mp3 player. You can also stream it easily – music sharing is made effortless and simple. Converting music and ripping is definitely nice when using this app. There are also some built-in features that will improve user experience to the highest level.
The Updates in 2019
Do you know that Winamp has existed for around 21 years? Pretty neat, huh? Despite the rumors that it isn’t as powerful as other competitors or the features are getting lame, the app will be back in 2019 with the claimed better updates and features. This time, the app is coming back as an audio mobile app that can combine streaming service, podcasts, and music all together.
According to a trusted source, the app will retain the signature style but with much-improved features and ability. The users should be able to enjoy their mp3 collections at home, to podcasts, to the playlist, and to the cloud. Not to mention that the app is available for Android and also iOS. Although the Android version is already available, the new one is said to be better. There will be the desktop version too along with the release of the mobile app.
It should be interesting to see how the service is going to deal with the modern era, especially since the last app has been considered outdated. But with the upcoming desktop and mobile app launch, there is always a hope that it will be better – as promised. It is also interesting to see how they are going to integrate some of the signature styles (which have been embedded and been a part of the operation) with the modern improvement. Hopefully, all of the features of Winamp will be better, newer, and fresher – just as they have promised.
