Playing music via streaming is the norm these days, however, there are still irreducible users who cling to their music library. Neat and carefully chosen files to delight your ears.
5 reasons to buy the Google Home Mini
We are going to give you five reasons why we recommend that you buy the new Google Home Mini, one of the two Google smart speakers.
Ears that if you want to enjoy all that music library, you will need a player with which to listen to it. Within the ecosystem of Google Play Store applications there are millions of options, we also have the ubiquitous Google Play Music. But is there any worthwhile alternative? The short answer is yes.
Press Music Player
The main problem with Android players is usually based on two aspects, advertising and shopping, one or the other are always present. Applications that promise you the best of the best and once installed, disappoint us.
This is where our protagonist comes, arrived directly from the XDA Developers forums, a player full of options, free and free of annoying ads. Just to clarify that when I say free, it is 97%, since if we want to unlock the 5-track equalizer we will have to go to the paid version.
But if we put in the balance what it offers us for free, compared to what we do not have, this player offers a very positive experience to users. And it has enough arguments to be taken into consideration.
The first thing we will see as soon as it is executed is its appearance, based on the design lines of Material Design. Fluid lines, pleasant colors and an intuitive environment to use, in addition to being customizable through the use of themes.
Pulsar is distributed in five tabs, among which we will find:
- Albums: Our discs ordered according to our criteria.
- Artists: The artists of our albums.
- Folders: Our music library in the form of folders.
- Genders: List of genres that our library contains.
- Songs: All the songs that we store on our device.
As we can see we have the option of play via folders or using the information stored in our music files. Regarding the latter, I must say that Pulsar has been the only one that has respected all the data and the cover of the discs, something that Google Play Music does not do.
Another trick of this player is its seeker, surprisingly good, offering the results we are looking for in a few seconds. As we write, it will show us those results that fit our criteria, distinguishing between Albums, Artists, Genres or Songs.
If we go into what is music playback, Pulsar offers a good balance between simplicity and range of options. Along with the classic random or repeat mode, we will find the possibility of varying the playback speed and information from our music archive.
Although our protagonist is not alone there, since it offers the option of selecting our favorite tracks, sharing the song we are listening to and a menu full of interesting options. Among which we highlight:
- Add to Playlist: We can make our playlists in a simple way.
- Edit labels: Add or complete the information of the disc we are listening to.
- Set as: The song that we are playing, will be set as alarm, notification tone or ringtone.
- Disconnect timer: We will set the time it will take until playback stops, so it won't continue to loop.
And these are only the settings during playback, if we enter the settings menu of the application we have a varied selection of options. Some only aesthetic and others tremendously useful.
This improves Spotify for free with its new Android application
Spotify has been updated and brings a lot of news. Some are purely static, but their big change is for users of the free subscription.
We positively highlight the possibility of set excluded folders, this way we will avoid that the WhatsApp or Telegram audios appear in our library. A simple detail that many will appreciate when browsing their library.
Do you still have few options? And what if I tell you that we can also select whether we want continuous playback or merging between songs. Not to mention the option to download the cover of our music or enable the playback from the lock screen of our phone.
Pulsar presents itself as a good candidate to be the player of those who continue to enjoy their music files, offering options that not even Google Play Music gives the user. Besides being totally gratuitous, except for the equalizer, comes in Spanish Y ad free. What are you waiting to try it?
