Doppler has become a popular application among users who prefer to have their own music library with HiFi audio support. The Mac version of the app was updated on Thursday with an important new feature that allows users to import their music library from the Music app or even iTunes.
As detailed in a blog post by Brushed Type, the company behind the app, Doppler for Mac 2.1 brings a much-awaited option for users.
Now, after opening the app for the first time, you can finally select “Import from Music” to setup the app using your current music library. Doppler will quickly import all your songs from the Music app (or iTunes, depending on the macOS version of your Mac).
The developers explain that the import process not only copies songs and playlists, but also library metadata. This means the app imports details like the number of plays and even the date a song or album was added to the library. However, it should be noted that Doppler does not yet support smart playlists or star ratings.
Importing your music library into Doppler doesn’t just copy songs and playlists, it also automatically includes some of the “metadata” you’ve created over the years. Play count, date added to library, and liked status are all stored in Doppler.
It’s never been easier to move your library to Doppler and we’re so excited for people to try it out!
Another new feature in version 2.1 is the ability to change the folder where Doppler songs are stored. This option was available in beta for some time and now everyone can use it. This allows users to store the Doppler folder on an external USB drive. Additionally, the update improves integration with third-party apps such as Meta, Mp3tag, and Yate.
Doppler 2.1 is now available for download. The update is free for current users. For new users, a lifetime license of the app costs $30. More details can be found on the Doppler website.
