Start Quicker, Finish Quicker! Also features Windows 10 Fluent Design!

During the beta test stage, users loved our new Audials Home and were impressed by the updated speed!

You'll be Surprised When you Open the New Audials!

The new Audials only takes five seconds to open when using an average PC. Without our current improvements, some users have to wait up to 13 seconds. The general processing speed has been especially improved for limited-performance PCs. Longer playlists in your music collection are now smoother to use and are no longer an effort for notebooks. Exiting Audials is now also equally as fast.

Looking Good - Audials with Reworked User Interface and New Windows 10 Fluent Design

Microsoft has started to gradually introduce their new Fluent Design for Windows 10. This didn't faze our usabiliity experts; instead they put all their efforts and ideas into working on and simplifying layouts, menus, toolbars, lists and switches in order to adapt them to the new Fluent Design. Nothing was neglected. Nobody has to miss out on any functions. Users of previous Audials generations will intuitively find their bearings. Audials 2018 is easier to use and, thanks to the new user interface, provides quicker results.

Music Wishes

Less work and quicker access to more music

In comparison to cumbersome YouTube downloaders and other recording tools, Audials has been unchallenged and on top for over 10 years. Every year, we are faced with the challenge of upping our game in order to make sure you have quicker and easier access to top-quality music. Audials One 2018 is once again proof that we have lived up to this challenge. 

The Wish list now Offers even more Options and is more Powerful than Ever

Previous generations of Audials 2018 sometimes required you to put in some extra work yourself. We're aware that this can be an irritation and have therefore put the entire working process to the test, shaken it up and made sure to improve any time-wasting aspects:

The wish list now offers even more options and is more powerful than ever
  • Use multiple wish lists at once.
  • With our new non-stop wish list, you can make Audials constantly look for the latest hits.
  • You can now edit the wish list and use the drag-and-drop function to add new wishes or delete old ones.
The wish list now offers even more options and is more powerful than ever
  • With the new Audials One 2018, you can listen to a track while creating your wish list and highlight it as the best version.
  • At the end, Audials will automatically sort out your music collection and delete any additional versions or duplicates. This saves you a lot of work and storage space.
  • You will receive more and better information on the status of each individual track. As of now, a green tick indicates that a track has been verified as the best version.
You know what your music wishes are?

Sometimes we like to find albums and hits using the extensive repertoire of the Audials music database with the discographies of the artists.

But sometimes we already know exactly what we want. From now on, you can simply type in your music requests as soon as they occur to you and you'll be immediately directed to the wish list. Isn't that clever?!

More Fun with Audials

You're definitely going to like the new user interface. We promise! Simply use the drag-and-drop function to add tracks to your wish list. Within the blink of an eye, you can switch between your wish list and looking for music. You'll also love the new representation of the artists.

Only the Best Version Counts

Back in the day, it used to require a lot of work if you wanted to download a track in good quality as most sources of music were extremely inconsistent in their quality of music. Throughout the course of our Audials generations, we've been making additional improvements every year in order to make sure that Audials does the work, making your life easier. We have now added two major helpers to the mix:

Only the best version counts

With Audials One 2018, you can now determine the settings for the minimum quality. You choose the quality, Audials will sort out the rest.


We've also added a filter for adjusting the minimum quality so that you can determine the exact quality of the tracks you wish to choose from.

Save and Play Search Results from YouTube & co.

Save and play search results from YouTube & co.
  • With Audials, you can record and save music off the internet, but there's no need for that anymore. Not to worry though: You can still save your music as MP3s.
  • With our new Audials One 2018, you can save tracks and entire discographies by your favourite artist without downloading them.
  • The referral links of tracks and albums are saved along with the cover artwork and can be added to playlists and played when you're connected to the internet.

You no longer need to record music and save it as an MP3 in order to establish your own free and legal music collection. In the not too distant future, you will be able to use these link-based playlists in the Audials apps. This means you are able to save your phone's storage space and avoid the irritation of transfering the files. Sounds great, right?

It's all about the Artists - See them from a different perspective!

In previous generations of Audials, artists were displayed in different ways depending on the functional area. This is no longer the case! We've now introduced consistency into how they are displayed on Audials. This will enable you to get to know the various facets of your favourite artists:

You like Madonna? Type her name into the search bar and...

  • the radio tab will provide you with the best stations for Madonna,
  • the music search function will direct you to all her albums and hits,
  • you'll be directed to Madonna in your music collection,
  • Madonna will appear at the centre of the music universe and music zoom, and similar music will be displayed.

Depending on the name, you will also see podcasts and TV shows. Type in the name once and the new Audials software will display everything about the artist in each functional area. Search, find, record and listen - one name, so many possibilities! Now on Audials One 2018!

News on your Favourite Artists now Available with the Music Search Function and Music Wishes

To remain up to date on your favourite artists, Audials received news via Facebook and Twitter. From now on, you will also receive the latest news on all your favourite artists via the music search function and music wishes. In combination with our new Audials Music Zoom, it's an interesting way for you to discover more about the artists of this world.

With our new recording schedule, you can put your feet up and let Audials do the work!

Whoever thought that, after our streaming recorder was voted "Software of the Year" multiple years in a row, we would stop improving it should think again. You can now use the recording schedule to automatically and continuously record movies off Amazon and Netflix.

Scheduling Recording on Audials is Child's Play

Scheduling recording on Audials is child's play
  • Briefly let the movie start playing on your browser.
  • Audials will then take note of the link you are streaming.
  • It's that simple - Add the movie to your recording schedule!
  • Once you've collected all the movies you want, let Audials get started with the recording.

How does it work? Once you've sorted out which movies you want to be added to your recording schedule, it takes just one click and Audials will take control of your browser and record each movie in the best possible quality off Amazon or Netflix, taking into consideration the performance capacity of your Windows PC. Simply leave it to do its work over night.

Video on Top

We've thoroughly worked on our video recorder and have made major improvements to the recording process. All previous and new device profiles for smartphones, tablets etc. will benefit from our new Audials encoding backends.

Top-quality Video Recordings

  • We've continued to optimize the recording process for adaptive streaming. If, for example, the provider changes the resolution, the recording will continue undisturbed.
  • To guarantee high-quality recordings, your Chrome browser will be opened in a special mode.
  • With weaker/medium-performance Windows PCs in mind, we have made numerous improvements to guarantee an even better quality of video.
  • Audials assesses the performance capacity of your PC. If it looks as though your PC will be unable to produce smooth recordings, the resolution will automatically be adjusted to a suitable level.
  • Thanks to a number of special optimizations on individual recording sources, Audials will continue to ensure that you can record video streams from the most significant providers in top quality.

Up-to-date Video Encoding

  • The so-called Audials encoding backend that is used to create video files in every desired video format has been reworked and is now completely up-to-date in terms of technology. The conversion speed has been improved for a large number of file formats.
  • You can choose between videos of the same size and better quality or videos of a smaller size and equal quality.
  • With the new encoding methods H.265 or HEVC, high-quality video files are much faster to produce.

Screen Recording Function for your Own Videos
