Clementine was created due to the transition from version 1.4 to version 2 of Amarok, and the shift of focus connected with it, which was criticized by many users. The first version of Clementine was released in February 2010.

- Listening to Internet radio from Spotify, Grooveshark (now defunct), Jamendo (January 2014 catalog), Last.fm, Magnatune, RadioTunes (Formerly Sky.FM), SomaFM, Icecast, Digitally Imported, SoundCloud and Google Drive and possibly Google Music in the future.
