Fresh out of Plex's new experimental Plex Labs division is Plexamp, the company's take on a dedicated music player. built off the back of nostalgia for the days where Winamp reigned supreme, Plexamp offers up a slick, standalone experience for playing back your music.
Whereas Plex's main offering is focused on playback your whole media collection, Plexamp sets its sights on playing back music and music alone. The miniature player works with both Windows and macOS and supports native playback controls. There's support for playing nearly any music format you can think of, and Plexamp can even be used as a companion control for other Plex players you may have running.
On top of basic playback, Plexamp throws in a number of other niceties, like gapless playback and soft transitions. And for anyone pining for the days where Windows Media Player reigned supreme, Plexamp includes visualizers at which you can stare intensely while jamming out. Plexamp also sports some intelligent features like loudness leveling to normalize playback volume, as well as different types of library stations to create radio stations out of your tracks.
If you have a large local library of music and haven't chained yourself to one of the streaming giants yet, Plexamp looks like it could be an interesting option to check out. That's particularly timely for anyone currently going through the exodus from Groove Music who may be on the lookout for another player.
If you'd like to give Plexamp a try, you can download it now from the Plex Labs site.
