Support android 13 media player by targeting api 33


Recommended Posts

Please add support for the new android 13 music notification by targeting android api 33! It will add much more functionality if implemented with shuffle and repeat toggles and will also look much nicer on updated devices. Having these extra toggles in the notification for quick access will be a great improvement to Poweramp's usability on newer android versions. Powermp is my favorite music player, but I am using YouTube music temporarily because of the continence the a13 music widget gives when fully supported. Once Poweramp supports this though I'd switch back in a heartbeat.

 

I'm not sure if this is possible but having them toggle through all of Poweramp's shuffle and repeat modes would be even better! I'm not aware of the full abilities of the new now playing notification but based on Poweramp's overall focus on functionality I hope once it is implemented it will live up to that amazing quality and functionality that I see thought all other aspects of the app. I am truly looking forward to see how this will be done.

@drazini yes, but this (targeting SDK 33) automatically disables Legacy File Support which is needed more (for example, to access files in Downloads or other "private" folders) vs changed buttons in the notification. Occasionally, we'll move to SDK=33 and further, but not right now. Thanks for the request!

@maxmp would it be possible to implement something like what youtube music does where you select the folders that you want the app to access music in on your device, thus allowing it to access your music on the newer SDK version?

It appears that Musicolet has been avle to implement the updated android 13 music player while still being able to access yhe downloads folder, perhaps Poweramp could take after this implementation?

@drazini thanks for the information, I will check what's going on with Musicolet and if possible that will be added to Poweramp.

Edit: Musicolet uses Android system media library which don't support 50% of formats Poweramp support, nor other stuff like .cue, .lrc, etc., plus there are also other limitations.

Actually Musicolet does warn about that.

For Poweramp I guess, All files access permission would be better, but that requires permission from the Google and few release iterations, which are planned, but will not be available immediately.

Hello, sorry for intruding the topic. Oneplus has this contextual info for music on the Always On Display since OOS 13, but so far only Spotify seems to be supported. Is this also linked to SDK33, or requires some other work on the app? Is it possible for your to support it?

@adsubzero as soon as 13 hits my OPs that can be investigated, and if possible, implemented. Note that Poweramp implements all APIs possible, so if this is something strictly forced for some specific players, it may be not possible. Thanks for the request!
