Nuvola Music Player Hits Beta, Adds Grooveshark, Hype Machine Support + More

A new beta release of the newly-renamed Nuvola music player is now available for testing.

The application was formerly known as ‘Google Music Frame’.

What’s New?

Three additional cloud music services have been added alongside Google Music support. These are:

  • Grooveshark
  • Hypemachine
  • 8Tracks.com

A menubar has been added to the application, and the preferences dialog has been bulked out with further options, including: –

  • Disable/Enable Try icon
  • Disable/Enable Notifications
  • Window closing rules
  • Proxy support
  • Multimedia keys toggle

Download

The Nuvola player beta can be installed from the Nuvola Beta PPA. The PPA supports Ubuntu 10.04 through 12.04.

Adding this PPA is not recommended for anyone wanting to use a stable release as it will only contain beta-quality builds.
