    I don't understand why PA doesn't sync files from the available clouds. I just use CloudPayer and it works very well... But with it I haven't the same power of sound I heve when listening by PA. True deception! 

    Thank you for confirming that PA sounds better. Much appreciated!

    I REALLY hope they add the capability to play from Google drive very very soon!!!

    You'd have to check on your specific device to ensure it's working, on some devices even though the underlying chipset supports high-res, the Android firmware does not.

    I C. How do I do that? I have the T-Mobile OnePlus 6T. 

    Thanks!

    To clarify what Max wrote in the first post, some builds using the old (non-material design) interface - numbered 70x - can run on Android 4.4 and earlier. However the final release of v3 requires library features that are only provided for Android 5 (Lollipop) and above.

    For users of legacy systems (KitKat and lower) the old releases - e.g. 588 - will continue to be available for you to use, but you won't be able to run anything newer than build 709.

    Hey Andre, 

    Have we confirmed that the latest Poweramp's Hi-Res Output actually works (aka, it completely bypasses Android Audio, or the Snapdragon's lesser quality DAC)? There was some debate about this a few months back that it actually wasn't enabled despite appearing to be. 

    Thanks! 

    P.S. SO happy V3 OFFICIAL VERSION is finally out!! And that we can move the album metadata OFF the album covers too!!!!!!

    Poweramp has now officially been updated from the aging v2 product to a brand new Material Design v3 release, and Google Play users will receive the new version, and any future updates, automatically. This is happening in a staged manner across all markets over an approximately one-month period, which has already commenced. Even though this is a major update it is a free upgrade, so existing paid licences will continue to work. Note: Poweramp v3 is only compatible with Android 5.0 (Lollipop) and higher, however users of devices running KitKat (4.x) and earlier can still continue to use the old final v2 build (588).

    The brand new design and features have taken about three years of solid work by the developer, in conjunction with lots of feedback from the userbase via these forums - including numerous alpha and beta test releases, thread discussions and user-polls. For the past year or so, Google Play users have also been able to opt-in to the beta testing programme too via the app main page in the Play Store. Lots of tweaks and adjustments have taken place since those early betas, and many interface features are now user-configurable as a result (including the positioning of text items on the player screen, the number and type of control buttons, the thumbs/stars ratings system, and several styles of seek bar).

    Skins and themes are already starting to become available for v3 should you want to adjust the look of the app still further, but please note than older v2 skins will no longer work (unless their devs update them) because the interface elements have all been completely rebuilt and it is not possible to make them backward-compatible.

    Even with this lengthy and interactive development cycle, some users have been finding the sudden changes are a bit unexpected and even overwhelming, and there is obviously going to be a bit of a learning curve as the entire app has effectively been rebuilt from the ground up. Think of it as waking one morning up to find your old 2010 car has been replaced with the latest 2018 model - and for free too!

    If after trying v3 for a while you find you still prefer the older, simpler design - or that the new features (such as the improved high-res audio engine) are not important to you - you are welcome to join the KitKat users and continue to use the old v2 product for as long as you want. An installable .apk file can be downloaded from the Downloads tab at the top of this page, and you will need to turn Auto Updates off in Google Play's Poweramp page. Please remember that v2 is now considered to be a legacy product, so if you continue to use it there will be no further updates or bug fixes, and it cannot be guaranteed to work forever with future Android versions.

    The development of Poweramp is an ongoing process of course, and everyone is very welcome to get involved with the discussions here, request new features or changes, and report any bugs. Please make your comments sensible and constructive,  with details about exactly what you would like to see changed and why (screenshots are great for this), as just jumping straight in with "this is ***** bad because it's changed from what it looked like before" is ultimately pointless, and your comment will be treated with the contempt it deserves.

     

    Hey Andre,

     

    Yeah JUST saw this the other day. SO very happy this finally happened!! Love that you can adjust where the album metadata displays, the 100-step volume option, Hi-Res Output, the awesome UI that outdoes the rest, etc!! Great job Max!!!! 👌👌

    Versions of Poweramp 3 , 806 at the moment are release candidates which means that once max is happy all the small issues have been ironed out, an official version will be released on google play. Only people following the forum will know about v3 so you are in effect part of a fairly small group who have been able to try out the new version.

    Ok. I just hope it's soon. I tell ppl all the time about Poweramp, but most people aren't willing to sign up for Beta. Hopefully he resolves the album info blocking the album cover art issue too. But really everything else seems fine now to me. No playback issues, trouble importing settings files in Beta, etc. 😎

    Thanks!

  6. So what's the story with Poweramp now? We're on V3 Build XXX but if you go to official (non-beta) Poweramp, it reverts back to V2. Why hasn't an OFFICIAL version been released yet? Or, if it will be, when is that happening? I just don't get how you can have beta V3 versions out there but now official one yet??

    If you take a look at the green rectangle I've marked, I feel like that part occupies a little too much space than is necessary for just play/pause and forward/backward buttons (don't mind the repeat,shuffles and  visualisation buttons, I accidentally included them in that rectangle). If you can decrease that area's size and hold that thought while you look at the orange rectangle I've highlighted, that part is totally not necessary. It was really nice the way it previously was with the three dots that expanded a menu with all the necessary options.

    Considering these two parts, a lot of space can be made to adjust the song's tags instead of putting them on the cover art.

    I don't like anything on top my cover art. The cover art is important for me and I don't want anything obscuring it. An option to choose to change where the tags are displayed would be greatly appreciated. I love all the other visual upgrades you guys have made in v3.

    I COMPLETELY agree Pete! It doesn't make any sense to cover it up.

    Applies to Internal DAC only (Wired Headset/AUX in Poweramp output settings).

    Please post your device (with optional ROM/Android version) if Poweramp alpha Hi-Res audio works for it.

    If it doesn't work, check this thread: 

     

     

    Hi Max, 

    I was wondering, like USB Audio Player Pro, will V3 have an option to bypass Android audio processing if a better DAC is detected (either internally as with the LG V30 or externally)? 

    This Hi-Res Output appears to just be to support Hi-Res music files, but not to bypass Android audio processing? Or am I wrong?? Please kindly let me know. 

    Thank you!!

    A lot of people in the main discussion thread for build 790 have been saying that they don't like the way that Title/Artist/Album text is currently overlaid in solid black boxes obscuring the lower-left of the album artwork. This occurs in both the main Player Screen and also in Grid View library lists. I thought a poll might be interesting to crystallise those views, and gauge what the overall userbase really thinks - maybe the majority are happy just the way it is?

    For clarity, we're talking about the black boxes containing the wording "Breakfast in America" and "The Very Best of Supertramp" in this sample image:

    This is not binding of course, but it'd be interesting to see the results.

    Hi Andre, 

    I think it would be best BELOW the cover art. Cover art shouldn't be obstructed. Having it below makes it neater and less messy. 

    Great thread!!

    Poweramp-rc-build-797-uni.apk

    https://play.google.com/apps/testing/com.maxmpz.audioplayer

    RC Build 797:
    • slightly increased selected item contrast
    • fixed crash on category change
    • fixed lockscreen not always appearing
    • Folders Hierarchy is now always enabled by default
    • widgets now should survive reboots better
    • fixed constant reloads (flashing) on Android 7-
    • fixed few crashes due to the translations
    • fixed Enqueue and stay in the list option
    • improved BT/headset keys support for Hi-Res audio output on Android 8+
    • removed Send Album - Artist with Metachanged Title option, as it doesn't work for new Androids anyway
    • clear action for Recently Added / Recently Played / Most Played
    • app icon (launcher) shortcuts (Android 7+)
    • few other bug fixes and small improvements

     

     

    Hi Max, 

    This RC Build 797 version looks fantastic!! 

    One issue that I know others have reported that I'm having is I've noticed that when letting Poweramp play tracks (from song to song) on its own, sometimes this version will stop at the end of a song, and NOT play the next song unless I manually swipe over to it. Please fix this issue before releasing V3.0. 

    Also, I am again requesting that you kindly include a parametric EQ (doesn't have to be anything fancy) with Poweramp since many users like myself rely HEAVILY upon custom EQs in order to enjoy the BEST sound possible. If this is time consuming, then please just release V3.0 and then perhaps add this to v3.1 or whatever in the near future. But if not, please just add it to V3.0. 

    Hope all is well with you and your team. 

    Thank you so much!!

    Good info. Thanks Andre!

    When will the final version be available?

    My android 4.4 device is not compatible with v3 requirements and a final version is necessary

    Regards

    I'm still waiting to find out about this too. I just wish they'd release it already. As long as it has the 100-step volume and is stable (parametric EQ would be great too), I'll be happy!

    Also will the update take full advantage of my quad dac in my LG v30?

    That's a good question too. Though I myself downsample all my Hi-Res albums to 256-512 kbps AAC, which doesn't sound ANY different than the original Hi-Res resolution it comes in, but takes up much less space and less power to play it. So I wouldn't worry about it either way to be honest.

    @clever__man any idea as to more specific time frame as the last date was missed I understand he's working hard and wants it to be complete and the best product player before he releases it but before you gave a specific date now it's soon can you please find out within the week within the next day or two or next two weeks in August by mid August, etc. as to when it will be released I think it's fair to request this I've not griped about an ETA on the forum before I'm just wondering it would be nice to know thanks Max Andre Clever man androiddd for the info.

     

    Yes I would love to know this too! I've been hearing "soon" for 4 years now. This app wasn't free, so for that I think customers deserve more clear communication. I do also appreciate all the effort put into updating Poweramp as well!

    I'm going to remove non-relevant comments such as ETA requests, skin questions (yes, but not until closer to v3's official release), etc.

    Andre 

    Hi Andre,

    Any update as to the OFFICIAL v3 release date? I tried to download the beta versions posted on here but it says file not found. 

    Thanks! Hope all is well with you.
