Already noted the progressbar bug, more customisability will be soon be added in future releases.

Assistant works with those media controls, but doesn't work with "Play music on Timber" or related commands. It seems like it just recognizes the word timber as a song and not the program.

Also, there's a bug that you can drag down the now playing bar and it will disappear.

Same here. Definitely a bug.

Liking the app so far. It reminds me of Augustro Music Player. That has some nice features in settings like being able to hide/show unwanted tabs. Not suggesting you copy it or anything

A black OLED mode would be awesome.

Also there is no way to sort albums eg. Alphabetical, duration, etc. Suggestions:

1. Add a scroll bar to make it easier to browse through large libraries. I have 3,223 songs 😃
2. Add sorting option for albums
3. Add a settings page to customize and change various things
4. Add Crossfade
5. Maybe after a while you can add theming. Best thing is to make color/ theme adapt to album cover
6. Add ability to blacklist songs/ song folders for those media files that keep popping up in the song library
7. Add swipe up to access playing queue
8. Add a dark mode, one that automatically switches to black in the evening - similar to Twitter app
9. Maybe add a homepage?

I've attached some concepts that you could maybe use for inspiration 😃

In the folders section I can't browse above the up arrow (/sdcard internal memory?) so it won't let me browse to my external SD card, although the tracks and albums on the external SD card appear on tracks and albums sections.

A very nice and simple app to use, enjoying it so far. This is a bug I noticed.
*App doesn't stop playing when another media player is active. Eg. Play Music, YouTube etc.

I have two questions / ideas for further development:

Does the player depend on android's media scanner to get its media library, or we can specify a folder for the player to scan and import the media on its own?
I see a cast icon, can we cast only to google cast supported devices, or to dlna devices also?

@naman14

You have created a beautiful music player, will try it out some more over the next few days

I would take the opportunity to ask some questions. First, is there a way to sort by album artist? You know, there are a lot of music tracks from artist A, but one or more songs from the corresponding album of artist A might have some featured artist B, so sorting by artist will result in having "artist A" as well as "artist A feat. artist B", though both tracks are from the same album. I know, sorting by album might solve this, but I would like to have all music from artist A shown in one place, regardless if there are tracks by aritis A featuring other artists. Is such an implementation possible?

The second question: is there a way to help with translation? I would like to help translating it to German language. Some translation platform like crowdin would be the easiest way in my opinion.

This is what I see. I would expect the artwork to be square rather than cropped at the sides. This is on a Mate 20 Pro so not a low res device.

Hmm, figuring out the problem with assistant not recognizing 'play on Timber' commands.
Will fix the playing bar dragging bug
