Doppler will receive a major update next week, bringing notable track and album functionality to the increasingly popular third-party music player app for iPhone.
For those who are not familiar, the Doppler app offers users an alternative way to explore their music library, with an adaptive minimalist interface with a focus on editing album artwork / metadata on iPhone and taking it into Support importing MP3, FLAC, AAC and WAV file formats without having to connect to a computer.
In December, Doppler listening reports were added, giving users a stylish snapshot of their listening habits over the year.
And in the latest v2.3 update scheduled to roll out on February 23, Doppler users will be able to ask Siri to play specific albums, songs, and playlists in Doppler. Siri commands such as “Play all James Blake songs in Doppler” or “Play playlist of my favorite songs in Doppler” are now supported in English, French, German and Spanish.
Users will still need to include “in Doppler” at the end of commands so Siri knows which app to use, but the developer says that should change in iOS 14.5.
Doppler will also support Siri suggestions starting next week. As Doppler is used, Siri can learn patterns on how and when music is listened to. For example, when headphones are connected, Siri can intelligently suggest music to play.
In addition, Doppler 2.3 will integrate with Spotlight search. Songs and playlists appear in search results on the Home screen. The results can be used to open them in Doppler or to start playing without having to open the app.
The third and final integration is Doppler for CarPlay – a custom CarPlay application for accessing and playing Doppler library content. The CarPlay interface offers library-wide play and shuffle buttons, as well as recently added albums and popular artists, albums and playlists. Siri support is also included, so Doppler can be controlled in CarPlay with voice only.
Doppler costs $ 6.99 and is available for download for iPhone from the App Store. [Direct Link] Interested readers can subscribe to the Doppler mailing list to receive notification when the v2.3 update is live.
