It can also work as a lightweight Subsonic-API compatible server, that can be used with any Subsonic compatible client.

Besides its own Web UI, Navidrome should be compatible with all Subsonic clients. The following clients are tested and confirmed to work properly:
- iOS: play:Sub, SubStreamer and iSub
- Android: DSub, Ultrasonic, Audinaut and SubStreamer
- Web: Aurial, Subplayer, Airsonic Refix, Jamstash and Subfire
- Desktop: Sublime Music (Linux/macOS)
- CLI: Jellycli (Windows/Linux) and STMP (Linux/macOS)
- Connected Speakers:
This project is in active development. Expect a more polished experience and new features/releases on a frequent basis. Some upcoming features planned:
- Multi-valued tags (Multiple Artists, Genres…)
- Smart/dynamic playlists (similar to iTunes)
- Jukebox mode (plays music on an audio device attached to the server, and control from the UI/Mobile client)
- Sharing public links to albums/songs/playlists
