Winamp for Android 1.0 is now available!
With Winamp & Winamp for AndroidTM you can wirelessly sync your music over Wi-Fi, import your iTunes library, and stream thousands of Internet radio stations with SHOUTcast.
The latest release of Winamp for Android features a completely redesigned Home screen, Now Playing screen, and lock-screen player. You can also download free music, browse songs by genre, swipe album art to change tracks, and use Android's "listen to" voice action to playback music in Winamp. We also added additional language support for Dutch, Italian, Spanish & Turkish.
Download and Stream Free Music
Thanks to our friends at Spinner, from the Winamp for Android Home screen, you now have access to Free Music. You can stream songs individually and if you like them, download them directly to your Android device.
Now Playing Redesign
The new Now Playing screen offers a clean and streamlined interface. Tap on the screen to reveal additional options including the info button, extras button, shuffle & repeat. In addition to biographies, discographies and photos, the info button now also offers a news link to articles about your favorite artists.
Similar to the desktop version of the Winamp Media Player, there's a new notifier that pop-ups during track changes or when you hit play/pause. The notifier gives you additional track information for the song you're listening to.
Now you can swipe left or right on the album art to change tracks.
Home Screen Redesign
In addition to a more polished UI, we've added two buttons to the Home screen: "Free Music" & "Search".
We took this opportunity to redesign the lock-screen player to have the same look and feel as the updated Now Playing screen.
Integration with Android's "Listen To" Voice Action
Use your Android's Voice Action to listen to artists and songs in Winamp. Outside of Winamp say "listen to...". Inside of Winamp, simply say the artist, album or song name. Make sure you enable Winamp as a searchable item in your Andriod settings.
SHOUTcast Featured Stations
The SHOUTcast Radio Directory is available on Android 2.2 and above (excluding certain non-compatible devices). In this release, we added a Featured Stations list, as well as updated the Now Playing page.
We have seen issues streaming SHOUTcast on certain devices (e.g. Motorola Droid X). Stay tuned to the Winamp blog because in an upcoming release, we are building native SHOUTcast streaming in the Winamp for Android app enabling us to offer an enhanced playback experience on all devices.
*Note: If you've experienced issues with SHOUTcast streaming over your cellular network, try streaming over Wi-Fi.
Additional Language Support
With the latest release, Winamp for Android now supports 12 languages including: English, Dutch, German, French, Italian, Japanese, Polish, Portuguese (Brazilian), Romanian, Russian, Spanish & Turkish. We plan on adding support for additional languages in future releases.
