Songbird uses Mozilla XULRunner and GStreamer media framework cross-platform frameworks. Songbird currently runs on Windows and macOS. In 2012, an Android version and an iOS version were released. Songbird at one point also supported Solaris and Linux, but this support was dropped. As a result, users forked Songbird and created a Windows, Mac, and Linux compatible derivative as Nightingale. Songbird announced on June 14, 2013 that it will stop all operations and close its doors on June 28. The company was unable to fund other activities and, as a result, all related operations and services were discontinued.
