winamp windows 10

If you miss the good ol’ Winamp media player, we’ve got an excellent piece of news for you: a new Winamp version will land next year, adding full Windows 10 support. How cool is that?

As a quick reminder, you can download and install Winamp on your Windows machine even to this day. The only problem is that the program is not compatible with the latest Windows 10 versions.

As a result, you’re going to experience a plethora or technical issues, ranging from launch errors, video playback problems, audio issues, and so on. In the worst case scenario, Winamp may even freeze your computer.

Winamp for Windows 10 is in the works

Windows 10 users have been asking Winamp’s developers to create an updated version of the tool for years. Now, their prayers have been finally heard.

Not only is a new Windows 10-compatible Winamp version coming in 2019, but it also packs a series of additional features that will definitely going to make it extremely popular among users. Here’s what Winamp’s devs revealed so far:

There will be a completely new version next year, with the legacy of Winamp but a more complete listening experience. You can listen to the MP3s you may have at home, but also to the cloud, to podcasts, to streaming radio stations, to a playlist you perhaps have built.

Winamp competes with other streaming services

Taking into account all the features listed above, it becomes clear that Winamp is taking on the major streaming services currently available on the market. Now, the question is: will Winamp succeed?

We’re sure that there will be a huge wave of new users coming shortly after the tool‘s release. But does Winamp have what it takes to keep its user base? The competition in the streaming, podcast, and cloud industries is fierce. Building a solid user base won’t be an easy task.

Most likely, Winamp will play the nostalgia card. We’re sure that many fans of the program will download the new version driven by curiosity. Only time will tell if Winamp’s resurrection will be successful or not.
