AOL released an updated version of its media player Winamp. The new update offers users a collection of new product features and enhancements including a comprehensive new multimedia artist discovery experience, integration of the new AOL Radio powered by CBS Radio, a customizable toolbar that lets users control Winamp from their browser, a commerce platform to purchase digital downloads, physical CDs, and ringtones, and language support for Simplified Chinese, Traditional Chinese, Korean and Japanese.
Leveraging AOL Music, Truveo and SHOUTcast Radio, Winampâ€™s newly launched artist discovery experience provides users with a robust multimedia experience giving music fans unparalleled access to artist songs, bios/news, related videos, radio stations, and photos. Users can get extended information about artists they already know, or discover new artists by exploring recommended artists that are either similar to or have influenced their favorite artists.
Winamp also allows music fans to purchase digital downloads, physical CDs, and ringtones. The commerce platform which will be extended to include tickets in the near future, allows multiple commerce providers to be integrated into Winamp.
