VLC app on Windows 10

The VLC app for Windows 10 Mobile smartphones and Windows 10 computers has updated to Version 3.1.0.

While this update is undeniably a small one, it does come with a pretty major feature; support for ChromeCast. No other features were added to this update but the support for ChromeCast should please many users who had been wanting this functionality, especially since it’s already a feature on the desktop and Android versions of the VLC app.

Surprisingly, the app developer mentions on his website that he’s also working on the Windows 8.1 VLC app as well for those using devices that don’t support the modern app. He also teases a potential update for the Windows Phone app as well.

VLC is a popular media playing app that’s relatively lightweight and supports a wide variety of file formats. Do you use VLC to play media on your device? Let us know in the comments below and then follow us on Twitter for more Windows 10 app news.
