If you will search for “music player” on the Play Store, you will see a list of Android music players which pack so many features that you will be spoilt for choice. But if you are looking for a music player that stands out from the crowd right from the first encounter, then HQ Music for Android 7.0 is the music player you might have been looking for.

HQ Music for Android 7.0 is an Android music player which features a minimalistic design with nothing fancy going on. The USP of this app is that the whole music listening and playback experience is controlled only via gestures. It has gestures for every action that you will be doing on the app except for just three tasks that I will be talking about later.

Note: The app is named HQ Music for Android 7.0 but it works on all Android smartphones with Lollipop v5.0 or higher.

HQ Music Player Gestures:

On launching the HQ Music app, you will see the interface as shown in screenshots below. Here, the Red colored UI signifies that the music playback is currently stopped/paused and Green colored UI shows the music is playing.


And from here, there are six different gestures that you need to use for controlling the music playback. Here is the list of those HQ Music gestures:

  • Swipe up: open track list
  • Swipe down: open track info
  • Swipe left: next track
  • Swipe right: previous track
  • Zoom in/out: volume control
  • Two-finger rotate: track timeline control



And that’s it what you need to do for controlling your music while using HQ Music app. The only options left are for shuffle, repeat, and mark favorite. There are dedicated icons for these three actions which you need to tap like traditional music players.

It is worth mentioning that it is a minimalist Android music player with no extra features like creating playlists, editing song metadata, adding album art, equalizer, and customization. If you are looking for a music player with such features, then this is not the one for you.

Final Thoughts:

HQ Music for Android 7.0 is a visually appealing Android music player with a cool way of controlling music playback. All the app gestures are easy to learn and you can simply control everything even without looking at your smartphone’s display. And even though the app has a minimalist approach, I feel there should be some more features like the ability to create playlists, equalizer, and able to choose what folder’s music content should be played. Hopefully, future updates will add some of these.
