5 of the best music player apps for Android
posted by Florin T. / Feb 21, 2016, 9:04 PM
Mind you, the apps that you'll discover below - in alphabetical order - aren't released in 2016 (we've yet to see a great music player launched this year anyway), but they're certainly relevant at this moment.
If your favorite music player for Android isn't on this new list, perhaps you'll find it on our older ones (see here or here). If not, feel free to tell us about it in the comments section.

I've found it hard to beat poweramp for listening to my device-local music. Would buy again. Always curious to try other powerful alternatives though.

Also, MyAudioStream audio application. A nice music player and audio streamer to playback or beam music that you have stored on PC, MAC any UPnP/DLNA server wirelessly and transfer to any wireless speakers, AV receivers or TVs.

I've always thought Poweramp had an absolutely convoluted interface that feels like it's still pulling from pre-kitkat android design, I never liked it. Some notables that aren't on this list: Shuttle Player - It's alright, has a really colorful interface. Walkman - Just find a port of it, it's a good music app. HTC Music Player - Again, find a port of it. My favorite Android music app.

I have recently released a new Music Player app for Android. It's called JukeboxPlus.. It makes organizing your music easy with many ways to browse your music, has ability to rate your music, keeps track of what you listen to. Creating custom playlists is easy and fast. The interface is simple to use. I work on the app daily and release new updates as I complete them. I'm currently working on adding in custom color theme options. I'm also working on a feature I call SmartPick. This will add music to your playlist based on your listening habits. It's kind of like Pandora but playing songs from your local music collection. The more you listen to your music, the better it gets at picking the music you want to hear. I should have this working soon. So please give it a try. I'm working hard to make this the most useful player on the market. If you have any feedback or feature requests... email them to me. play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.goudysoft.jukebox

I just bought a new phone (a GS7) and my surpirse was to see no media player (google play music, but it sucks), and coming from sony devices is too weird, then I noticed a HUGE problem: is actually hard to get a decent music player, then I realized how good is "Music" from Sony.... And I have to say, this "review" is superficial, it gives a guide of some players but no deep feature analisys to say "best music players" And here's why. First of all, Is hard to get a player that actually let you change metadata from music files, and even harder find one that let you change and customize album arts. I don't know u guys but I want to get a organized library and make it on the phone is actually a good thing. Another not-analized thing here is the way music players manages another sound from the phone, for exmple, PowerAmp (that appears in almost ALL "best music players" in all web) sucks when another sound from the phone comes, like a notification or a navigation indication from GoogleMaps/Waze sounds, because stops the sound music abruptly and after the other sounds goes off, take a little to come back the music, another ones make the same but after the other sound starts (in some cases the notification sound ends when the player take an action) and other ones doesn't respond at all when another sound sounds.... and there are a lot of examples like how much time takes to make a playlist, etc, etc. Funny thing is, I never realized that those features where a need because Music from Sony actually have all of those.... Anyway, for u phonearena, u should give a more deep analysis in the apps, just not the app itself, u should include the environment (the phone) because all this apps are designed for them (tablets counts too I guess)

Hi, I would appreciate if you give it a try to my first app. It's called Weezzler and it let's you play your phone's music on any browser over wifi. Useful when you want to listen to your music on speakers. You don't need extra hardware or a user.
