    The shuffle mode is designed to remain active whenever you tap on a new song to play - unless you use the 'Play' or 'Shuffle' icons, which configure their own shuffle options. So just tapping on a song within any Folder, Album, or the All Songs list, etc won't adjust the Shuffle setting.

    However if you play a song from a limited Category (i.e. a category that does not eventually include the entire Library's contents - such as a Playlist, Top Rated, Low Rated, Recently Added, Recently Played, etc) then the All Songs mode is no longer valid so PA would switch that to shuffling all songs within the chosen category.


    exactly that, maybe I should make a feature request for a persistent shuffle switch (all songs) ?

  2. Current situation: whenever I play a song, I always set it to "Shuffle All", but if I pick another song from other lists like Recently Added, it'll get reset to "Shuffle Songs" and I have to manually set it to "Shuffle All" again.

    What I'm looking for: can I pick a shuffle mode and the app will stick to it (albeit making the song queue position change), no matter which category I pick the song from?

    there's an option in app called "No Reshuffle" which I thought gonna do what I want, but I think I misunderstand. "No Reshuffle" only for making sure your songs queue doesn't get shuffled again when you pick a song on the same list / category.

  3. You can use apps like Automatic Tag Editor or Autotagger to embed lyrics. Been using the first one since I found PA doesn't have the feature and it works well enough. If you got your music from PC first, then you can embed the lyrics right then and there, just use mp3tag.

    open the file with mp3tag > select the file > press ALT+T > Add Field (the top left button, paper with star) > Find: UNSYNCEDLYRICS > Paste lyrics on the Value box > Ok

    these are the two methods I use to embed lyrics in my songs.

    Access allowed? What android version?

    I'm also having this problem, I tap save, pick author - name, save. The app says it's saved, but the file is nowhere to be found... but I also don't know where it's saved, checked on Android/Data for the app's file folder and maxmp for Poweramp file folder, nothing.

    Storage permission has been granted, Android 10, Redmi Note 8 Pro.

  5. Honestly, I don't know why you would want Poweramp on PC as there's already robust softwares on music player / management with lots of features and customizations that I think even Poweramp doesn't have. Similar to many apps on android will probably never have its PC port because there are already softwares for those same functions with more sophisticated features.

    If you want some PC music software recommendations:

    - The legendary Winamp : https://getwacup.com/  <- Winamp v5.666 with community bug fixes.

    - AIMP https://www.aimp.ru/ <- solid winamp replacement, switched to it years ago and never looked back (my main music player on PC). Also has android port but it's inferior to Poweramp (in my opinion).

    - Foobar2000 : https://www.foobar2000.org/ <- music player and management software, super customizable, tons of features, and surprisingly very lightweight too. The only downside is that the learning curve is pretty steep to get used to it.

    Those three are the main music softwares on Windows PC that I've used, there are more like MusicBee, MediaMonkey, iTunes (kind of a must if you own iPhone anyway), which I haven't tried.

    So like the default light and dark skins, but with all of the selectable options made available?

    yes, default light & dark skin with more options like the other skins available (for example: enabling simple seekbar without pro buttons, hide one or more shuffle/repeat/visual/sleep buttons, put the rating in track menu, etc.)

  7. With so many fancy skins here, can I request two things? either one is fine

    1. the classic v2 look, I don't know if the current skin engine allows it or not, but I just miss the old neon look of v2

    2. the current default skins but with more options. I find myself changing from skin to skin pretty often just so I feel the app looks fresh, different, and new. I really want to use the default skins but there's just very little options on them, if someone can replicate the default skin but with tons of more options, that'd be great.

    This is just my requests, willing to pay a reasonable price (heck, I've bought some of the skins here, why not more) If someone else want to post theirs in here, feel free.


  8. I have some wild imagination thinking "How the hell do you control Poweramp with steering wheel? do you turn right for next song, left for previous song, and brake for pause?" then I just realized they can put buttons on it

  9. The current one display lyrics in a separate box that obstruct song's information and player controls. To pause the song, I have to dismiss the lyrics first. Maybe an option to replace album art or obstruct album art display instead? song info isn't that important (why are you reading the lyric to a song you don't know), but player control is.


    ulterior motive: so I can post some deep lyrics on instagram while showing off what I'm listening to.

  10. This happened since I updated to Android 10 1-2 months ago. I don't know if there's an option for Poweramp that I need to enable or some extra permission I need to give.

    Poweramp v3-build-882-arm64-play

    Device: Xiaomi Redmi Note 8 Pro "Begonia"

    Android version 10 // MIUI version 12 (though the problem is already there while it's still in MIUI 11)

    Steps to reproduce:

    1. just play any song

    2. whenever the song changes (either because the previous one ends or I change it manually) the miniplayer in status bar doesn't update / still display the previous song info until I press pause and play again.

    That is already available, controlled by Skin Settings > Miscellaneous Options > Move Track Timings.


    doesn't work for me unfortunately.

    @monkeybutt, could you do me a favour and download and run a little dimensions utility and send me a screenshot


    It will show me the configuration of your device allowing me to fine the layout



    additionally, I don't know if it'll help, but I take another screenshot when "Move Track Timing" is off and the buttons are set to "Hide Pro Buttons". This isn't a problem as I already found a skin config that I like, just one last touch that is moving the track timing under seekbar.

    @monkeybutt, positioning those 2 fields low down is a bit of a nightmare. Can you email me your device model and i  will se what i can do.

    Yes the artist album are one field. Skins are a collection of styles and do not allow for coding logic.

    sorry, been on work.

    but its weird since I saw the screenshot on your app page that has the timers under the seekbar. Either I'm using something that prevent it from being in that position, maybe because I've hidden too much elements...

    my device is Redmi Note 8 Pro (Begonia) with Android 10, resolution is 1080 x 2340 pixels, 19.5:9 ratio (~395 ppi density)


    edit: shoot, you said e-mail... oh, well. Should I still e-mail you?
