About this app

substreamer is a completely free app to use with subsonic compatible music servers (subsonic, airsonic, navidrome, ampache etc). Your music when you want it, where you want it, online or offline.

Easily see newly added, recently played and most played albums or just grab a list of random albums or songs for something different.

Like that song? Play similar songs with a tap!

Discover new songs and old favorites by genre and time period with SubStreamer radio. Pick your filters and get a random generated playlist, just like radio without the ads!

Got a song stuck in your head? Sure that you have it on an album somewhere but just can't remember where? Just search!

Connect your subsonic server with your account and Substreamer can also tap into to give you more information about artists, songs and albums in your collection and recommend similar artists, similar songs or give you a list of the top rated songs in your own collection for you to explore.

Build up a play queue of your favorite rock songs and just hit save as playlist to have it stored on the server for later.

Of course you can also just hit your favorite album and press play.

Oh and if Music isn't enough we also support podcasts that you have synced with your subsonic server both online and offline!

Chromecast Support.

Full offline support. Store albums, songs and playlists and podcasts on your device and listen offline.

Keep your starred songs automatically synced to your device!

Automatic caching of upcoming songs for smooth playback.

Easy playlist management for adding single or multiple tracks to a playlist or starting a new playlist.

Radio mode generates random playlists for your chosen genre or time period (or both!)

Quick lists of random / recently played / frequently played and newest albums right up front.

Search for artists, albums, songs integration for fetching artist info, recommendations and playlists based on ratings scrobbling

Airplay support (just open the volume controls in the player to access airplay directly or use the control center by swiping up from the bottom of the screen)

if you run into any bugs please let me know, i use this app every day myself and am always trying to make it better!

The new update is great. I love the radio options off of artists and songs. Very Sweet. My only gripe is that I like to keep tabs of my music on my phone and the folders its in. I like to use airsonic to download music to my phone and don't have to rely on an internet connection to have music always on my phone. Then listen to that music and the stats go back to airsonic. There is no option as to which folder the music gets downloaded to or to tell if a song is available locally on the phone. Also I can't find a way to download all starred songs. I really appreciate the hard work.

Thanks for the review! Offline Music and Offline Podcasts are listed in the menu, these list all of the songs/albums/podcasts/playlists that are stored offline If you're offline when listening substreamer currently doesn't record the plays (on my TODO list) Local/SDCard storage option is coming as is easy offline sync for starred songs

So far, this is my favorite Subsonic streaming app, it's got a very clean modern look and is very easy to use. Two features I wish it had would be the ability to share music by sending external links like the Subsonic app and the ability to add albums and artists to playlists. Being able to add only one song at a time is hardly ideal but otherwise, I'm pretty pleased with it.

Thanks for the feedback, I'll look at expanding the playlist functionality a bit. Check out the new version it's a big refresh.

Just trying this again, I did some time ago and didn't like it, it is much improved now. I'm happy I decided to give it another try. A feature I would love is to be able to swipe left or right for next/previous track on the now playing screen, it would make it much easier to skip a tune you don't like when driving or whenever. I am impressed with the playlist builder and the queue options. Add the swipe option and this will become my go-to android subsonic app. DLNA casting would be most welcome too.

Swipe for the now playing screen is coming, it's on my list. I have chromecast support but it uses the chromecast SDK. Not sure what would be involved with DLNA casting but I am happy to look into it in the future. Check out to keep up with releases and new features or to share feedback!

What's new

Fix: Android vesions under 10 incorrectly prompting for storage access on start, causing failures on some devices.
