Encore Music – XDA App Review

Encore Music – XDA App Review

We listen to music a lot on our devices. We now have more providers of music than we know what to do with. Google Play Music and Spotify are some of the more popular options. The issue, currently, is that we end up downloading many apps to do one thing, listening to our favorite music.

Today we are going to talk about Encore an application from XDA Recognized Developer XpLoDWilD. It’s an Open Sourced, Expandable music player for Android. This is TK with XDA TV.

Download the application from the Google Play Store, Encore Music by Fastboot Mobile, then get into the wizard which will help us setup the application. We can setup the actual plugins from here.

First tab we have is the Listen Now tab. This will normally be where you pick up where you left off. Next is the My Songs tab, this is where we all of our songs are listed by artist, albums, and playlists.

Worry not for the next tab is dedicated to Playlists from Google Play or local playlist on your system. The next tab we have here is the Automix. This is the developers’ attempt to give us an automatic list based on mood or genre or type of music you want to listen to.

The developer gives us a separate tab for audio recognition. The history tab gives a list of everything we listened to, regardless of the source of the music. The Lyrics tab gives access to song lyrics of popular songs. The settings tab is where you can setup your providers, your music and audio filters as well separate Bluetooth preferences.

What we have right now is the ability to integrate with Spotify and Google Play. What’s in the works are better media sources and better stability. The best things about this application are that you can join multiple sources into one application, it doesn’t try to keep track of what you’re doing and it’s free. The other note-worthy thing is that it’s also expandable.

Now some of the plugins do cost money, but they’re well worth it, and you don’t want to use the built-in DSP as there is always the option for viper4android which is what I have on my Nexus 6. It’s something you can definitely try and expand upon, and if you want to develop for it this will be something you can get into.

As usual like and subscribe to this channel and like and subscribe to my channel and let us know what other types of videos you would like to see here on XDA. Other than that, I will see you guys soon.
