What is FrostWire?

FrostWire is a free, open source BitTorrent client first released in September 2004, as a fork of LimeWire. It was initially very similar to LimeWire in appearance and functionality, but over time developers added more features, including support for the BitTorrent protocol and a full blown media player.

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.


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
 - Updated SoundCloud search & download api.
 - Improved search suggestions.
 - Improved transition between My Music and Home screens.
 - Multiple crash fixes in music player.

FrostWire now back on Google Play. Not Banned Anymore!

Yesterday FrostWire was temporarily removed from the Google Play Store and is now back up after a new stripped down version without YouTube got approved by the Google compliance team. and other App Stores will still distribute the full featured version, now dubbed FrostWire Plus.

With recent stability fixes FrostWire for Android has climbed all the way up to #30th on the Google Play’s Top Free Android Apps and was holding strong for weeks! Yesterday, April 2nd 2015, after an app review (probably prompted by the spike in user interest and app ratings), Google decided to remove it from the Google Play store.

We’ve received this email:

Google Play FrostWire Removal Notice Email

Google Play FrostWire Removal Notice Email

We were informed that FrostWire for Android distributed via Google Play can no longer have YouTube as one of its search result and download sources, as this functionality is not compliant with the YouTube Terms of Service and therefore the Google Play Developer Distribution Agreement. We decided to remove this capability in order to adhere to Google Rules and continue to distribute and market our application on the Google Play Store.
Today, after submitting the stripped down FrostWire app, it passed the compliance review and it is back on the Google Play store. It took a little more than a day but we are happy to be back!

What does it all mean in practice?

Users downloading FrostWire from the Google Play store will receive the basic app version without YouTube as one of the search sources. All other features will not be affected. Depending on what keywords a user enters, he or she might get slightly less search results and therefore options for files to download.

We are already working on including more search sources, both BitTorrent and cloud based to offset the loss of YouTube content and will be still offering the full version – now named FrostWire Plus, on our homepage and in other App Stores.
Stay tuned for more updates shortly!

FrostWire 6.0.1 released. Available now for download.

We can proudly say this is the leanest, and fastest FrostWire release we’ve ever made, and we’re only getting started with the performance improvements.

Download it now for free from the Official FrostWire Website:

Windows installer
MacOSX installer (64-bit)
Ubuntu (.deb) installer (64-bit)
RPM installer (64-bit)
TAR.GZ installer (64-bit)

The most fundamental upgrade about the 6.x series is the complete removal of the Azureus Torrent engine, we’ve replaced it with frostwire-jlibtorrent, a Java wrapper of the powerful libtorrent library.

The performance benefits are very palpable on search, downloads and other aspects of the application.

Having Libtorrent under the hood will allow us to continue working on the enablement of advanced features for expert BitTorrent users.

We’d like to invite everyone out there to benchmark FrostWire 5.7.7 against FrostWire 6.0.0 and let us know what they find, we’d love to make FrostWire 6 superior in every respect to the FrostWire 5 series.

Contributors are needed to keep moving the project forward at a faster face, we are now converting donations received into bitcoins which are deposited into a “Tip for commit” fund. All the contributions accepted into the project automatically trigger tips to the authors in bitcoins.

Anybody can help, you don’t need a bank account, or paypal account to receive your tips, all you need is a free Bitcoin wallet which is software you can download to your smartphone or PC, tips are effective immediatly after contributions are merged to the frostwire-desktop, frostwire-common, frostwire-jlibtorrent, and frostwire-android projects.

FrostWire 6.0.0 running on Ubuntu Linux

FrostWire 6.0.0 running on MacOSX

New FrostWire 5.5.2 out – Look Mom, No Java required (full changelog)


A very important FrostWire update has been released featuring about 20 bug fixes and enhancements.

Mac users that had issues with 5.5.1 and downgraded to 5.5.0 should update to 5.5.2, lots of issues were fixed for the Mac platform as we get ready to submit FrostWire to the MacOSX App Store.

Look Mom, No Java required (on Windows, Mac coming soon)
A major change in 5.5.2 for windows is the way that FrostWire uses the Java Runtime Environment.

Before 5.5.2 our installer would check if you had a suitable Java Runtime Environment installed and if it wasn’t there it’d try to download Oracle’s JRE and install it in your computer. This complexity introduced the possibility of several thousand FrostWire installations to not finish properly, our files wouldn’t be decompressed correctly and many of you couldn’t run FrostWire.

After 5.5.2, it doesn’t matter if you have Java installed or not. Our installer comes with a Java Runtime Environment, now every FrostWire running 5.5.2 will be running the same exact version of the JRE thus getting rid of JRE Fragmentation issues. FrostWire comes with a JRE compiled from source by the FrostWire Team, it includes several fixes after the public release of the JRE 7u10 update, and you should feel FrostWire performing a lot better if you’re on Windows.

Lately the Java Runtime Environment has been getting a lot of bad press due to security exploits that affect Java Applets on web browsers, please know that these security vulnerabilities do not affect FrostWire in anyway.

Please let us know of any issues, or enhancements you think are of the utmost importance and we’ll try to include it on 5.5.3 which we hope will have some major changes in the UI, towards our final design for FrostWire 6, which will focus on making the user experience a lot friendly and according to more modern design trends in software applications.

Enjoy and share responsibly.
