‘Ubuntu One Music’ Android app adds new features, support

The Ubuntu One Music application for Android has been updated with album art display, playlist editing/creation and support for the playback of .ogg and non-DRM iTunes tracks.

The Ubuntu One Music app allows you to access and stream music from your Ubuntu One account directly to your Android device – wherever you are*. It’s not a “free” service – requiring a subscription to the Ubuntu One Mobile package at $3.99/month – but a 30 day free trial is available should you wish to whet your appetite before biting.

New features

So what’s new? Playlist support has been super-charged for one; you can now create, edit and deleteplaylists ‘in-app’. A longed for feature that was a bizarre omission in the first place.

The update also sees ‘overall speedimprovements’ when accessing large libraries which, along with newly-added playback of .ogg and non-DRM iTumes files, gives users”…faster access to more of [their] music wherever [they] are in the world.”

Finally, album art fans will be pleased to see saved cover art displayed during playback of tracks.
