Finebits launches free, ad-supported version of Sonca media player

If you're in the market for a new media player on Windows 10, Finebits has released a free version of Sonca you can check out. In exchange for dropping the regular $10 price tag, however, Sonca Lite (as the free version is known) is supported by ads.

Originally launching in October, Sonca became one of our favorite media players for Windows 10. The app is designed to work with any local music, movies, clips, or audiobooks you have stored on your phone or PC. It automatically organizes tracks and their information, helping to bring some order to your collection. In addition to local storage, however, Sonca goes a step further by connecting to cloud services where you may have music stored, like Dropbox, Google Drive, and OneDrive.

Sonca runs across PC, HoloLens, Surface Hub, Xbox One, and Windows 10 Mobile. Further, the app supports Windows Timeline and Continuum.

If you want to give Sonca a shot, you can grab Sonca Lite for free at the Microsoft Store. The paid version is also currently on sale, dropping the price down to $1.
