Mono is for discovering and listening to music. It gives you access to the entire world of artists, their releases, their top tracks and their media. You can configure and prioritize music sources for playback, including your local files, Soundcloud, Subsonic and of course YouTube - either on your device or on Chromecast. You can also view artist bios, images, concerts and similar artists and build, save and share playlists easily. There are also many ways to automatically build playlists, from top tracks overall, by genre, by country, by tag as well as Billboard charts.
Soundcloud integration has been improved significantly and now offers the following features
- Soundcloud on Chromecast
- Explore all Soundcloud genres to build playlists in seconds
- See Soundcloud users' tracks, playlists and likes directly from their track or by typing in their name
- For any generic track, step through all Soundcloud artist/track matches to chose the one for your playlist.
Permissions (working on making these optional)
- Calendar - to post concerts
- Microphone - to speak text
- Location - to see concerts in the vicinity
Subsonic is supported for those of you that want to stream your own music. You will need to download the server onto your desktop/laptop (www.subsonic.org) and set it up with your music library.

, especially the negative and creative varieties. We know many of you are using the features successfully but there are a few users who cannot seem to even run the app at all. We have tested on many devices but not every one, so rather than just trashing the app please give us an opportunity to figure out why it won't run for you by sending device specs, ROM version, and as much information as possible as to what is happening. If we then fail to resolve the issue by all means trash it.
