Read First: Poweramp v3 is now the official version of the product, with new features and a new user-interface

Recommended Posts

Hi.

Some time ago I bought the full version of the program.
V3 works great on the phone. The problem appeared when trying to install on a multimedia station in a car. From Google Play, I only see version V2. I can install the V3 version only from the apk file.

After installing Poweramp V3 from the apk file, Google Play continues to show the need to install the V2 version.
How to deal with this ?

Head Unit:

Android: 8.1

CPU: Intel Airmont eight-core 1.8GHz SC9853i 64-bit

GPU: Dual core Arm Mali-T820.
RAM: LPDDR4 4GB 
Flash: Samsung 32GB
Res: 1024x600

It's because you have an Intel chipset, PA v3 is not optimised for Intel devices any more so Google will want to install v2 by default (which did have an Intel-specific version).

However the v3 versions from the website here will work fine on your device, and the Play Store unlocker will continue to work fine as long as you install from Google first and then install the newer APK.

Hi Andre, thank you for your answer.

Now it is clear.

I confirm that apk from the website works fine. Unlocker from Play Store works too.

Some small discomfort is that Play Store still wants to install the old version for a new one :)

Thanks again for the quick response.

 

PS.

Can you just answer me why the Poweramp V3 is not officially in the Play Store if it works properly on Intel chipsets?

At least I do not see any problems on the Intel device.

I assume it's a historical thing in the way these things are flagged, but I don't know for sure. Most modern Intel devices don't seem to need specific builds though, and Intel are moving out of the mobile-device chip market anyway (hence no specifically developed PA code for them now).
