Stretto v2.0.0 Release Notes

Release Date: 2019-01-28 // over 5 years ago
  • 🚀 The last 2 years of work towards the next version of Stretto have culminated in a website I'm proud to release as version 2.0.

    ⬆️ The new website has an upgrader so you can export your old Stretto libraries as JSON and it will automatically re-find your tracks as youtube or soundcloud items.

    🆓 This new website behaves quite differently to the old version, instead of maintaining copies of all your local media files, it simply backs every track with a youtube or soundcloud song and plays it transparently through an iframe. Think of it as a way to let youtube and soundcloud host your music for you free of charge.

    Some key features it is launching with are:

    • Chart discovery, find new music from the top charts of iTunes and Spotify
    • Import from Spotify
    • Automatic lyric fetching
    • 👍 A basic Android app (supports loading your library and playing songs at this point, no offline caching yet)
    • 🆓 Completely free and hosted by me so you don't have to!
