Radionomy, the company that bought WinAmp back in 2014, told TechCrunch that the old desktop media player is coming back from the dead. Its primarily going to relaunch as a music service aggregating mobile app, but Radionomy said that the desktop app is getting some love too. Although it leaked earlier this year, the deskop version of WinAmp is officially getting updated to version 5.8 on October 18, while the mobile app and version 6 of the desktop app are supposed to come in 2019. "What I see today is you have to jump from one player to another player or aggregator if you want to listen to a radio station, to a podcast player if you want to listen to a podcast - this, to me, is not the final experience," he explained. It's all audio, and it's all searchable in one fashion or another. So why isn't it all in one place? The planned version of Winamp for iOS and Android will be that place, Saboundjian claims. On desktop, "the war is over," he said, and between the likes of iTunes and web apps, there's not much room to squeeze in. But mobile audio is fractured and inconvenient.
