At the end of last March, we anticipate that Poweramp, one of the best, but the best music player available on Android , was about to receive the biggest update in its history, with a huge redesign that would completely change the interface of which, today, is the player used by most users who still bet on having their music in local format
Well, today, finally, all those who want to try a preview of the new and spectacular design of the music player, can already do so thanks to the first preliminary version that has been shared through the official Poweramp forum.
How to test the latest version of Poweramp with brand new design
Since the publication of the official Poweramp forum , they have decided to offer users the chance to try this version 3 of the player, whose main asset is the complete redesign that the application receives . However, the moderator responsible for announcing the arrival of the new version, ensures that it is a beta not intended for use on a day-to-day basis, since its stability does not live up to the stable variant available through Google Play.
