Winamp 6.0 was confirmed by Alexandre Saboundjian, CEO of Radionomy recently in a Techcrunch interview. As for what that entails, Saboundjian says that you'll be able to listen to MP3s, but also to the cloud, podcasts, streaming radio stations, and your own pre-built playlists with the service.
He added, "People want one single experience". According to TechCrunch, besides the desktop version of the app that is being updated (mainly for compatibility and stability purposes) to version 5.8, there will also be a new version, Winamp 6 to look forward to in 2019.

As a sort of a very pleasant surprise, things are about to change abruptly for Winamp - not only is this one scheduled to make an enormous comeback very soon, but it's also about to change its goal.
Despite the announcement, the official website continued to function amid reports of newer versions unofficially making it to the web. Though some unofficial versions of Winamp reached fans on Android, it wasn't enough. "It's a huge number", he said. The update is supposed to be officially launched in the coming weeks and is a sort of olive branch to vigilant Winamp users who have stuck with the app after it went on life support. This also shows that Winamp is still being worked on and is not completely abandoned.More news: Trump calls Federal Reserve his 'biggest threat'
