I use Foobar, Spotify and Google Music

Looking for one app that can do all three at the same time, that's my dream media player

Clementine can do spotify and google drive (not sure if thats the same as google music?). It also does others such as grooveshark, lastm.fm etc.., but you do need premium accounts to stream music from spotify, grooveshark, and last.fm afiak.

Nope, Google Music allows you to upload some 20,000 MP3s or something like that and plays them and created playlists of them within a browser. There are also some third party iPhone/Pod/Pad apps that interface with GMusic too. I haven't found a Windows player that will capture GMusic yet.

according to this bug report the reason its not implemented is there is no official api yet:

probably why no other players have it yet either.

How come you don't use AIMP's library? I'm not yet at the stage of comprehensive management because the moment I've got my first 640GB HDD I've downloaded A LOT of linux distros that came with free music. Right now I just delete songs I don't like that happen to pop up on shuffle, but I do plan for something more organised eventually.


For two reasons: the Aimp library is an independent window/tool (?) from the player, and I prefer the way WMP manages the library, specifically the album art grouping and the way I can browse by folders..

I use xbox music on w8, jetaudio. But mostly listen to music on the go so music player on lumia 920...

I don't understand the craze about customizing the heck (esp looks) out of your music player. That's so 90s. Just use a player that has good library feature and can produce great sound. Then minimize it to tray ffs.
