Spotify releases 'Spotiamp,' a new lightweight client honoring Winamp Even though Winamp's supposed shut down date of December 20th has come and gone and the software is still available, streaming giant Spotify has released a "tribute" to the media player, a new client dubbed "Spotiamp."
Says Spotify: "To honour the engineering skill and passion that goes into building wonderful software that millions of people enjoy we would like to share a small tribute to honour the great legacy of Winamp. Spotiamp is a fully functional music player where you can login using your Spotify Premium account and stream music. We hope this will give you some nice memories of the days before Spotify!"

The new client is extremely lightweight, just like Winamp, and uses Winamp's familiar design and UI.

Also incredibly, Spotiamp supports Shoutcast and Winamp visualization plugins, such as Milkdrop2, which are easily some of the most popular features of the media player.
