Yukusoona Posted August 5, 2020 Share Posted August 5, 2020 Dear makers of Poweramp, I have installed Poweramp on my Samsung Galaxy S9 (android 10) to try out an alternative to Samsung Music. So far I like the app very much, thank you! I'd like to purchase it. One of the things that drove me away from Samsung Music, i.e. my phone's stock app, was a way to manage play lists in a better way and to control music via voice input (using google assistant while I am driving my car). I miss the following two things: - There are 5 different random categories, which are activated by repeatedly pressing the "shuffle" button or by pressing and holding it. Anyway, in my case I would only need one of the shuffle categories ("shuffle songs from current playlist"). Maybe in a future update, you could allow to restrict shuffle modes to those ones, the user actually needs / wants to have? In my case, I could then easily switch between "shuffle" and "no shuffle" by simply pressing once without having to double check whether I ended up in the right category. - I really love to start a playlist by voice command (google assistant) while in my car. Unfortunately, when I finally manage to start a certain playlist by voice command (which is not easy in itself, playlists are often not properly recognized), it would always start in "no shuffle" mode. So when I give the voice command to play "my favorites", Poweramp would always begin with the first song on the list and go further song by song. It's a pity... Poweramp does not begin in "shuffle mode" even if I try to implement it in my voice command. After the playlist has been started, though, I can add a new voice command via google assistant saying "shuffle". Poweramp accepts my command but it ends up in "shuffle all songs", leaving the playlist that I have just activated and wanted to listen to. So, to sum up: I dearly miss an option to start a specific playlist in random mode by voice command. Thank you very much! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
