Yesterday Thomas Nigro shared some information on Twitter about VLC for Windows 10 and now Today VLC announced that the company is launching a new UWP app for Windows 10 devices.
VLC will be available for Windows 10, Windows 10 Mobile and Xbox One and will not be available for all devices at same time!
VLC app for Windows 10 will first launch on Windows 10 Mobile next week in beta and official app release is planned in early May and VLC for Windows 10 Desktop, the app plans to launch the private beta in early May, and the official release is planned in mid-May.
VLC stated for Xbox devices that :
We’ve been working on Xbox One for a long time, even considered a Windows 8 app last year, but we could’nt because of the lack of proper APIs. The work on the Xbox One UWP port started in February, and it’s been a pleasure to follow the SDK updates.
Check out our repo and try it yourself on your Xbox One starting next week. It’s still far from perfect but we have several pieces of code not merged yet in the master branch. The app will be available this summer, when developers will be able to publish UWP apps on Xbox.
VLC will be dropping support for its Windows 8.1, Windows Phone 8.1 and Windows RT support around May.
We will keep updating you on this topic in future! Stay Tuned! 🙂
