Written by Michael Larabel in GNOME on 11 November 2019 at 07:09 AM EST. 13 Comments
Shortwave is a new Internet radio player built for GNOME with GTK3 and has been in development the past year.

Shortwave is a new alternative to the likes of Gradio and other Internet radio players. Shortwave is built using the GTK3 tool-kit and features an adaptive user-interface. Shortwave allows the recording of songs, support for streaming audio to a network device using the Google Cast protocol (for supporting the likes of the Chromecast), and supports the database for finding Internet radio stations.

The initial Shortwave beta is available in source form from the GNOME GitLab server or also as a Flatpak via Flathub.
