As expected, AOL has sold Winamp to Radionomy, a streaming music company. Radionomy announced the acquisition of both Winamp and streaming software Shoutcast today while offering a glimpse of future plans for the products.
Radionomy noted that “[t]he Winamp media player offers the ability to listen to, watch and manage music, video, podcasts and Internet radio on desktop and mobile devices, while customizing the experience to personal tastes.”
Radionomy CEO Alexandre Saboundjian said the company has big plans for Winamp. “Its role is clear in the future evolution of online media—we plan to make the player ubiquitous, developing new functionalities dedicated to desktop, mobile, car systems, connected devices and all other platforms,” he said in the press release.
