Why this is the final update on Songify 1.x
This is the final update to Songify 1.x because we want to focus on 2.0 which we want to build from scratch. We do this in order to have an app that is maintainable, sustainable, and extensible. We have a lot of planned features but at this time we don't have any planned release date. Development takes its time, especially if you consider, that Songify is just a free-time project of two friends. If you want to keep up with the development, feel free to join our Discord.

  • Added a selection to the blocked Artists when adding a new one
  • Added an option to set the max song length in minutes
  • Added Edge (Chromium) as supported Browser for Youtube
  • Added Opera Browser as supported Browser for Youtube
  • Added more Bot-Responses
  • Added Bot-Commands
    • !song -> Displays the current song in chat
    • !pos -> Displays the queue positions of the user's song requests
    • !next -> Displays the next song in the queue
  • Added an option to automatically announce the current song in chat when the song changes
  • Added Russian, French and Spanish translations (using deepL)
  • Removed Nightbot support since we now need proper oAuth to access the API. Too much work for 1.x
  • Songify now won't use up 100% of your CPU in certain scenarios
  • SplitOutput now works as intended
  • Improved error logging upon unhandled exception
  • Made Youtube via Chrome significantly better in performance
  • Renamed Youtube (Chrome) and Deezer (Chrome) to Youtube (Browser) and Deezer (Browser). The code automatically detects which browser is used: The first browser found will be used, the order is Chrome -> Edge -> Opera.
  • Changed the way VLC and Foobar getting fetched. There were issues when the name of the file was not in a specific format.
  • Changed SettingsWindow to be wider to fit for all languages
  • The Save-Button in Settings / Spotify is gone (thankfully)
This Version fixes a crash that can occur when the Album Cover is used in OBS and on some rare occasions it just crashes randomly when trying to save / display the album cover. The Cover now gets downloaded to a temporary file and then the old one gets overwritten with the new file. This is a better approach instead of downloading to the same file over and over again because the old way sometimes leaves the albom cover in OBS weirdly artifacted.
  • Autoupdater (Songify now updates automatically!)
  • User-Blacklist. Stop poeple from requesting songs
  • German Translation (more will come soon)
  • Custom Bot-Responses. You can now change Bot-Messages for the following events:
    • Artist is blocked
    • Song is already in queue
    • Max number of songs per user reached
    • Song is longer than 10 minutes (this number is still hardcoded)
    • Error fetching songdata
    • Song added successfully


  • It was possible to run multiple instances of Songify, this is not the case anymore
  • Songify now starts minimized (systray) if its enabled (thanks @SHWotever)
  • As per request we changed the trailing whitespaces to be optional (enabled by default). You can now set the amount of spaces and if they should be added in the first place.
  • Songify no longer stores settings in %localappdata%/Jan_Blomacher. From now on Songify settings will be stored in %localappdata%/Songify.Rocks.
  • Added global exception handling. If Songify crashes on you the log should help us see why!

  • History Window won't crash anymore
  • Changed the way the player selection gets stored, should work without issues now
  • Removing single artists from the blacklist didn't save, it does now.
  • If there were no artists in the blacklist there would still be an empty row in the datagrid, this is also gone now
  • You now can display the requester in the output. Right click the output-format textbox and you can add 'Requester'. Everything contained within {{ and }} will only be displayed when the current song is a requested song. For example: {artist} - {title} {{requested by @{req}}} will output San Holo - don't forget to breathe today requested by @ inzaniity This is useful to see who requested the current playing song in Twitch chat.
  • Album Cover will now be deleted if no song is playing
  • A new widget tool to have a nice browser source widget in your stream! Click on File -> Widget and customize the widget the way you like! Make a new browser source and paste the link that is displayed under the widget to get it on stream!

  • Song Requests via Twitch won't get added multiple times to the queue
  • Song fetches via Spotify Web API weren't accurate enough
  • Song Requets now work even though Spotify was on pause for a long time (saving device ID)
  • Fixed Song history issue with non-german Windows OS
  • Sorting the queue window would cause the queue to not update
  • Fixed double space in output string if `{extra}` was empty. You now don't have to put spaces for scrolling in the output. We decided to hardcode 10 spaces in
  • Fixed size not being correct after popups were displayed
  • Songify now remembers where it was and starts at the same location. Child windows will also start on the same location as the main window
  • Some minor internal changes to cleanup the code a tiny bit
  • Spotify API Integration
    • Link your Spotify Account in Settings -> Integration
    • Get detailed song Info such as every Artist, AlbumCover and so on
    • You can now download the Album Cover
  • Spotify Songrequests
    • Songrequests via Twitch Channelrewards (enable messagelogging to get the ID)
    • Songrequests via `!ssr` Chatcommand (it has an adjustable cooldown)
    • Artist Blacklist (so you never hear that annyoing artist again!)
    • Specify the maximum number of Songrequests per user
    • You have to connect your Twitch account in order for this to work. You can do so by filling in your Credentials under Settings -> Integration
  • New Windows for Blacklist and Song Queue
  • New Website: https://songify.rocks
  • Reworked the online History Website
  • Songrequests can be viewed on the web* You now can split Artist and Title in 2 seperate text files.

  • Fixed pause text not working properly
  • Fixed a crash that happened when the hidden config.xml file was empty

  • Redesigned the MainWindow to have a menu bar at the top. The inline buttons in the title bar just felt too cluttered with the new additions.
  • "Varius Artists" will be cut from the Artists

  • Song History
    • Songify can now keep track of your tracks! There is a new button in the title bar in which you can enable the history. It also creates a "history.shl" file which is basically a XML file that you can open with any editor. The history creates new entries for each day to keep things clean.
  • Support for VLC, foobar2000 and Deezer(web)
    • You can now select VLC, foobar2000 or Deezer in the player selection. (VLC and foobar local, Deezer as web/Chrome like youtube)
  • Fixed a bug that caused the software to crash when the notification was shown, the window closed and the notification forced again
  • Fixed a bug where songs that contain ' " ' wouldn't upload.
  • Removed all text from the titlebar buttons
  • removed all icons in the player selection
  • Added tooltips to all titlebar buttons
  • The online history is just a "naked" table, design comes whenever I feel to do it. But it at least converts to your local timezone
  • Made this version to be 1.1.0 instead of 1.0.10. Else it messes up with the updater.
  • Chrome custom timer
    • You can set your own timer rate. Settings -> System
  • Logs
    • If the software encounters any issues a log file called currentdate.log will be created in the same directory. For example: 05-14-2019.log
  • YouTube (Chrome)
    • Fixed an issue where "- Youtube" would always be at the end
    • If you experience heavy CPU Usage on Chrome is, try increasing the timer rate in the settings.
  • Song-Upload
    • Fixed an issue where the song wouldn't upload after a few successful tries
  • Config
    • Changed the way the config files are written and read. When the software shuts down a hidden config.xml file will be written and on start, the same file will be read. This is so updating becomes more convenient in case the old "just override the exe file" wasn't working properly
  • Added song-info Upload
    • Check Settings -> Output and clickt the button with the little chain to copy the link to the clipboard
    • Works with most chatbots including Nightbot, Streamlabs, Streamelements and Moobot.

  • Examples (replace URL with the URL provided by the software):
    • Nightbot:
      • $(urlfetch URL)
    • Streamlabs:
      • {readapi. URL}
    • Streamelements:
      • ${customapi. URL}
    • Moobot:
      • Response -> URL fetch - Full (plain) response, URL to Fetch -> URL
Fixed an issue where the fetching of the song wouldn't start on app launch.
