Navigating your music.

Browse your music library with Nativ Vita's intuitive user interface concept.

All music that is stored on the built-in hard disk drives will appear under the LOCAL MUSIC category, and the shared music library in your network will appear in the NETWORK MUSIC category. Navigating your music is simple and you will feel right at home. We use the same popular categories you know from the music player software on your computer or smartphone. And a few more.

    This software is really well done. I thought I’d soon try a roon subscription but because I own most music I listen to (and have it stored on the Vita) and since your browsing software is done so well I’m going to stick with this (at least for now). Thank you.

    Is there a way to play a random selection of songs within a specific genre?

      Hello Steven, this is not possible right now. I will add this to the wish list as it seems to be a great feature.
