New FrostWire for Android now with “Play before download” (Streaming Preview – v.1.6.0)

A huge new update for Android is here.

We’ve finally done what you’ve been always asking for, “Play before download” (FrostWire Plus only) and “Play while you download” (available on basic too)

Play before download, a.k.a. “Preview”

Starting on FrostWire Plus 1.6.0 for Android (the one available only on our website, also 100% free), YouTube and SoundCloud search results can be streamed for preview, this way you can know ahead of time if this is the file you need for offline access, or if you just want to play it, you can do so.

Play while you download

But what about .torrent downloads? Given the distributed nature of the file pieces on the Bittorrent network, TODAY it’s harder to give you the same experience we can give you when streaming from a cloud source, we could do preview, but you’d be frustrated how long you’d have to wait in most cases.

Therefore, you can start any media Bittorrent download, and while you’re on the transfer screen you can wait for a Play button to appear. Once this button appears you can start playing the file before it finishes the download.

But I have FrostWire Basic only! I want previews too
Then just get FrostWire Plus on our website right now! it’s absolutely free.

Changelog:

FrostWire 1.6.0 - AUGUST/03/2015
 - Streaming Previews on search results before download. (FrostWire Plus only)
 - Play .torrent media files while downloading.
 - Upgrade bittorrent engine to jlibtorrent 1.0
