Looking for a good packaged app music player for your Chromebook? Meet Remo. “Play your mp3 files on this beautiful music player and control it by your phone. ”
Note: I did not download and test the app to control music from phone because the download was not from Google Play.
- Packaged app
- Light weight
- “p” or space: play/pause
- Up or right arrow: next music
- Down or left arrow: previous music
- Open source https://github.com/rafaheringer/remo
There is a lot to be done though. There are no options to sort music by artist or album. A search feature is also needed.
The UI looks totally nice. I am sure this is something that you guys will enjoy for sure. However, the app is still in beta and you might see some bugs here and there. For me, I was unable to add a folder using the browse icon. I had to drag and drop songs (which is cool too!)
By default, the app has some songs listed in its catalog. To play songs from your own collection, you have to select the Folder icon on the right side and then choose the location and click OK
Anyways, there isn’t a lot to talk about this one. Go ahead and give it a try!
