Poweramp-alpha-build-709-uni.apk 709

About This File

Note: this release is based on the original Poweramp user interface (from the 700-704 alpha releases). It does NOT feature the new Material Design interface that is available to test in the currently feature-incomplete build 790. For forum discussion thread for build 709, please see https://forum.powerampapp.com/topic/11400-poweramp-alpha-build-709/

• fixed some dither options causing no audio

• Android 4.3/4.4 support restored

Adjusted hi-res output on various devices - big thanks for the community feedback!

  • Snapdragon 845 devices (e.g. Sony XZ2) - improved Hi-Res Output detection
  • Sony XZ/XZ1 - improved Hi-Res Output detection
  • Lenovo X3 - reenabled 24bits
  • OnePlus (1st edition) - disabled DVC for Hi-Res output due to forced speaker playback
  • Added new per-output option - No Duck - for cases when notification causes issues. Activated by default for Hi-Res output for some Snapdragon 625 devices (Asus Zenphone 3)
  • HTCs @ 7.0 - improved Hi-Res Output stability
  • Nexus 6P - fixed notification coloring


  • Updated Direct Hi-Res Experimental Output. Now with support for various Android 7/8 devices
  • Added Direct Hi-Res new Direct HD variant. Includes support for LDAC/UHQ BT (up to 96khz)
  • Added support for 88.2/176.4/352.8/384khz sample rates (where supported and properly reported by the device)
  • Poweramp now tries to get and show actual device sample rate (except for Samsungs). Some outputs (e.g. USB DAC, LDAC BT) force specific sample rate, despite shown by Poweramp. E.g. Android will accept and report 96khz for BT with AAC codec, resampling audio in the process back to 44.1khz
  • Updated and added OpenSL HD output from Poweramp beta-preview (enabled for Android 8+). Includes support for LDAC/UHQ BT (up to 96khz)


  • Backported Notifications from Poweramp beta-preview, also updated/polished them for Huaweis, Meizus, Vivos, and some other devices with non-standard notifications
  • Backported dithering. Fixes a few cases when dithering is not properly applied

NOTE: for Android 8, Direct Hi-Res is supported on Snapdragon SOCs (e.g. hi-res enabled Asus, Nokia, LG, HTC devices)
NOTE: Direct Hi-Res does not support DVC for Samsungs @ Android 7 (but Hi-Res + DVC is supported by OpenSL HD for Android 8+, or for Samsungs @ Android 5/6)
NOTE: for "absolute volume" BT devices, DVC is not generally supported. You may try to disable "absolute volume" in Android Development settings in this case
NOTE: due to the audio output changes, all output settings are set to defaults
