It has online music streaming from Spotify and Deezer (among other streaming services like Google Play Music, Hype Machine, Deezer), last.fm integration, systems integration (local files), and a responsive user interface.

Harmony previously it was open source until the developer had to make the "difficult but necessary decision to move Harmony to a commercial model" because it did not receive enough support from the community to help sustain the project.

So that the player has a free evaluation version (with all the available features) with which the user can decide if it is worth making the payment for this software.
