Player Winamp will restart in 2019

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

A couple of weeks ago, I shared news to our social channels of the Internet Archive's effort to pay homage to the legendary music player Winamp.

Speaking to TechCrunch, Alexandre Saboundjian, the CEO of Radionomy-which purchased Winamp in 2014-said that the new version will offer "a more complete listening experience".

"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", Saboundjian added.

"People want one single experience ..." Most people probably moved on from Winamp around the time when iTunes started picking up popularity, however, and now only a small, dedicated community still swear by the antiquated player.

For the moment no exact release date scheduled, but the mobile app Winamp should point the tip of his nose in 2019.

Saboundjian hasn't revealed how exactly the app will extract audio media from various sources such as Google Music, Spotify playlists and Audible audiobooks. The revamped version of Winamp is slated to arrive on both iOS and Android.

Winamp's user base was uncountable in the late 90s, considering it was the default audio player for many.

From version 3 onwards, your skins could be completely freeform, which meant that you could shape windows however you liked, decide where buttons would go, and which features would be accessible through the interface.

Winamp was quite a popular music app in its heyday. For more information, head to the app's official website. It will bring together everything media that you care about, like your music, podcasts, and streaming services.

Winamp has been a desktop player traditionally but that is about to change with the release of the next version of Winamp in 2019.

According to Executive Director Alexander Sabungan Radionomy, Winamp still has about 100 million monthly users: "Users of Winamp are really everywhere". Or maybe ever. But here we are, with newfound knowledge that Winamp isn't dead.
