Poweramp provides an audiophile-grade sound quality output for most Android devices, yet it is still a music player that packs inside lots of other great functionalities. As new updates become available, additional features get jammed and as is the case with the latest beta, there are a number of fresh ones coupled with the ever-needed set of bug fixes. Let's first check out the official release notes for V3 build 823 and afterwards continue with our regular feature breakdown part.
Basically, Poweramp now natively supports casting to Google Chromecast-enabled devices, including TVs and more.
