At doubleTwist, our exclusive focus is to serve the millions of digital music collectors that are increasingly neglected by the big guys in Mountain View and Cupertino. Over the past several years we’ve introduced a number of audiophile features such as lossless streaming support, 10-band EQ and casting for a wide range of AirPlay, Chromecast & DLNA-capable devices.

But our latest update is bringing something new and unique: gapless playback support that works not only with songs stored locally on your phone but also, for CloudPlayer users, any music stored in the cloud on a Dropbox, OneDrive or Google Drive account. This means you can finally listen to your DJ mixes or iconic albums like Pink Floyd’s Dark Side of the Moon without any annoying gaps between tracks. It will work regardless of whether it’s a download or a stream, a set of files on your SD card or a folder in a distant datacenter.

Keep in mind that for a true gapless experience, your music tracks need to contain special metadata telling the player how to properly play the songs. As long as you ripped the tracks using an app that can correctly embed this metadata (like iTunes or EAC/LAME), they will play without any issues. Gapless playback is supported for MP3, AAC, FLAC, and ALAC.

The new update is now rolling out on the Play Store for both CloudPlayer and doubleTwist Classic Player.
