VLC announces UWP app for Windows 10


VLC  announced that the company is launching a new UWP app for Windows 10 devices soon. VLC will be coming to Windows 10, Windows 10 Mobile, Xbox One, and even Windows 10 IoT. The app won’t be launching for all these devices at the same time, and the company will slowly launch it in new devices. The VLC app for Windows 10 will first launch on Windows 10 Mobile  (most likely Redstone only)  next week in beta, and the official release is planned for early May.

For Windows 10 Desktop, the company plans to launch the private beta in early May, while the official release is planned for mid-May.

The app is also coming to Windows 10 IoT, and the company is apparently working on the app for Raspberry Pi 3, but no release date is available just yet. As for the HoloLens, the company does not have much to share just yet. It is also worth noting that VLC will be dropping support for its Windows 8.1, Windows Phone 8.1 and Windows RT support sometime around May.
