Winamp is a classic multimedia player, currently provides Windows and Android versions, is a free non-open source software.
AOL announced on November 20, 2013 that it would shut down Winamp’s website on December 20 of that year and would no longer maintain and provide download services. On January 14, 2014, Radionomy acquired Winamp from AOL and promised to re-launch the app. After a 4-year wait, in 2018, Winamp finally came back and announced the launch of Winamp 5.8.
Now, after nearly 4 years, Winamp has finally released an update after 5.8: 5.9. Although the version number of 5.9, Build 5.9.9999, is infinitely close to ‘6’, Winamp 6, which Winamp developer Radionomy promised as early as 2018, still has no news, and even a public beta version has not yet been released.
