Winamp makes a Comeback, to Compete against Spotify and Deezer?

Winamp, a popular Windows media player, will shortly reopen, and registration for its forthcoming beta test is now open.

Because of its vast features, plug-in support, skins, and customization choices, Winamp is one of the most popular media players for Windows. Radionomy bought it in 2014 after being sold to AOL in 1999. Winamp 5.8 was the most recent version published in 2018.

Then, just a few days ago, the business announced on social media that “something exciting is happening” with Winamp. According to its website, the business is working on Winamp for the next generation, which will be “fully remastered” rather than merely an update. According to the company, it will also be a “innovative revamp of the world’s most iconic audio player,” according to the company.

There are no specifics yet, but it is expected to connect customers with their favorite musicians and serve as a home for music podcasts and radio stations.

Winamp will also aid artists and audio creators by providing them more control over their content and connecting with fans and earning a more equitable income.

Based on the hints, it appears that the new Winamp will be an audio streaming platform to compete with Spotify and Deezer. We’ll find out as soon as possible.

In the meanwhile, anyone interested in becoming a beta tester can sign up at Winamp.com.
