Winamp has just released their Winamp 1.0 client for Google Android devices, allowing users to sync their music wirelessly from their Winamp Desktop library to their Android device over their Wi-Fi network. Get your copy of the Winamp Android application for free here or through the Android Market here.

Most Android devices of version 2.2 and above can connect Winamp to the free online radio directory service SHOUTcast, which has thousands of radio stations in its directory. Users can browse these stations easily from the Winamp home screen.

Winamp has completely redesigned the home screen and “Now Playing” screens. It now supports genre browsing, search and a left/right swipe gesture to change tracks, plus it has the ability to use Google’s voice command “Listen to” to activate Winamp. The “Now Playing” screen shows album art, title track and artist information and more. The user can press and hold the song information to interact with Pandora, YouTube or the Amazon MP3 store.

A brand new feature is the ability to download free tracks using the Winamp for Android home screen. Users can stream tracks individually and if they like them they can download them instantly to their Android device for free.

Player controls remain persistent while within the Winamp application, allowing easy access to the home screen as well as track navigation.

Widgets are available for Winamp playlists or the Winamp player, giving easy access to your favourite tunes.

If the Last.fm client is installed, Winamp will support scrobbling of tracks to last.fm.

The new Winamp client now supports 12 languages and has fixed various bugs since the first release.
