Nuvola Player provides a tight Linux desktop integration for web-based media streaming services such as Spotify, YouTube Music, Apple Music and others. The goal is to achieve more native user experience and tighter integration with Linux desktop environments than usual web browsers can offer. It tries to feel and look like a native application as much as possible. Nuvola offers background playback, handling of media key, integration with media player applets, Last.fm scrobbling, lyrics fetching, and much more.
For us, Linux is not a secondary platform but the system we love and use every day.
The following web-based music streaming services1 are supported by Nuvola Player:
Although Nuvola should work in all Linux desktop environments, we currently test only GNOME (Ubuntu, Fedora), Cinnamon (Linux Mint), Mate (Linux Mint), Unity (Ubuntu), and Pantheon (elementaryOS). We hope to explore other desktops in the future.
