FrostWire allows you to play music files (MP3 and OGG) without having to run external players or search for Creative Commons License files. The software displays detailed information about the files like a number of seeds, a list of trackers, file size, the estimated time to complete the download, download speed, etc. You can also stream files from the cloud before you download. Start playing the BitTorrent media downloads way before transfers are complete.

One of the most interesting options that FrostWire offers is the ability to share files with other residents of the house on the same WiFi network. FrostWire has a built-in wizard allowing you to create torrent files and share them with other users on the network. Easily access, browse and play all your media in one place. Create playlists and listen to your music in a car using the built-in gesture-based audio player for Android!
