Nuvola Player
Cloud music integration for your Linux desktop

About Nuvola Player

Nuvola Player is a runtime for web-based music streaming services providing more native user experience and integration with Linux desktop environments than usual web browsers can offer. It tries to feel and look like a native application as possible. However, it cannot overcome common drawbacks of web-based music streaming: some music streaming services require Flash plugin and web apps usually have higher memory usage than native apps.

Music Streaming Services

Install Nuvola Player

Nuvola Player 3 project officially supports and provides packages for Ubuntu 16.04, 16.10 and 17.04, Fedora 24-25 and Debian Stretch and Sid. The Nuvola Player developer has tested installation and functionality in clean virtualized instances of these distributions and can assure reasonable user support in case of problems.

However, Nuvola Player should also work on other modern Linux distributions, but user experience might not be optimal (e.g. inconsistent look and behavior) and quality of user support depends on complexity of an issue.
