      Poweramp v3 - Next Beta Release Planned for April 2018   03/14/2018

      As you may be aware, the Poweramp developer has been working hard on an updated material design user interface for Poweramp v3 which required a full ground-up rebuild of the code and is taking some time to get to a beta-test stage. See the forum thread for more details and to discuss, but it is currently hoped that the next Beta Test release will be ready for April 2018.

Can i use this as a server?

4 posts in this topic

Hi, 

I'm liking Poweramp but I have a question regarding media server. I have a minix u9-h and will be running my music from that as a headless unit. Can I use Poweramp on my phone to control my music (UPnP)? These kind of features make Media Monkey a powerful app but I prefer the interface of Poweramp.

You can run Poweramp on any Android device and play back on that device (or via Bluetooth speakers) but the song files which are scanning into its Library must be located on that device's local storage rather than on a network.

Hi Andrew, thanks for the reply.

I noticed that server support have been discussed a number of times and one response suggested that this might have been lined up for v3. Any plans to implement this feature in Poweramp? It's kinda my number one criteria for a music player.

Certainly output to DLNA / Chromecast /etc is planned for v3 (this will not be until after the initial release though). I'm less sure of what plans are in place to allow PA to play non-local media (streamed sources, network, etc)
