Ranked in these QuestionsQuestion Ranking
Pro Super intuitive way of organizing and browsing albums and artists
You can view all the albums you have in one long list. Clicking on one of them will bring a popup at the bottom of the screen where you will see a list of all the songs on that album.
Pro Queue option lets you change what's playing on the fly
You can add songs to a queue, and then re-order or remove songs as you please. It works similarly to a temporary playlist.
Pro Integrates well with many desktop environments
One example being the conditional use of client side decorations (a.k.a. header bars) depending on the currently active desktop environment.
Pro Works fast and reliably
Pro Integrates with the MPRIS sound menu
This applies for most players in the "Linux world", but not for all. Therefore I consider it worth mentioning.
Pro Super flexible layout
The latest version has a good full-screen layout and is very responsive. Goes very smoothly from full screen to minimal player (also being a GTK+ app).
Pro Online radio integration
The newest version features a nice interface for adding, browsing, and playing online radio stations. This gives you access to more music than you would normally have, which can help expand your music library for free.
Pro Cloud music
Lollypop allow you to play music from the web (iTunes charts and search from Spotify).
Pro Clean interface
Pro Portable version available
Pro Pure sound
Pro Has a waveform seekbar and analyzers
Has a big single-click waveform seekbar and three real-time analyzer visualizations by default.
Pro WASAPI/ASIO support
High-end audio cards can be easily used to their full potential without any additional software due to WASAPI (Player and Pro) and ASIO (Pro) support.
Pro Supports all formats
WAV, BWF, RF64, AIFF, AIFC, FLAC, APE, ALAC, WV, TTA, DSF, DFF, MP3, MP2, MP1, M4A, MP4, AAC, MPC, MP+, OGG, OPUS, SPX, WMA, WMA Pro, WMA Lossless, MP4, WMV, AVI (certain codecs), MID, RMI, KAR, IT, XM, S3M, MTM, MOD
About 8 MB, and about 11 MB with the integrated Soundfont for its MIDI playback synthesizer. Native application, no dependencies (no .NET runtime).
Pro Most actions can be done with a single click
Most actions can be done without having to double-click. Things like navigating folders, playing files, seeking audio, changing volume are all done with a single-click.
Con No equalizer
Lollypop still does not have an equalizer.
Con Requires a well organized music collection
Lollypop will be a pain to use if music is badly tagged. The setup is a one time thing, but it can be a pain to organize a large library.
Con No In-App Volume Control (0.9.242)
It has no in-app volume control, it has to be managed through system 'Sound control/Applications'
Con GTK App
Its a GTK app so integration in other desktops is terrible it also uses GNOMEs ClientSideDecorations so it will break many window managers.
Con No playlists
Or not yet, at least in the forums they say they're working on it
