Nuvola Player 4.5

Nuvola Player

Already a few weeks ago, we received the new update of Nuvola Player, for those who do not know him yet, I can tell you that is an online music player focused on various music streaming services that allows us to connect various services like Deezer, Google Play Music. Spotify,, Mixcloud, among others.

Nuvola Player has another great feature that is compatible with various desktops and sound apps among which it has support for Elementary OS, Unity, Gnome, etc.

The new update Cloud 4.5 It is the fifth version of a series of updates rolling on the way to version 5.0 of Nuvola. This latest version adds integration of progress bar and volume bar in Deezer and Google Play Music, a fix for long-term problems with the Flash plug-in by achieving better detection of missing Nvidia drivers.

Web application integration scripts can use these features to allow the user not only to display the current track time and playback volume on MPRIS clients as well as to search for any track and change the Volume. Currently, only Deezer and Google Play Music scripts support these features, but others will follow.
