It’s been a few months since the popular VLC media player has been updated for Windows Phone 8.1 and Windows 8.1. However, the main developer of the app, Thomas Nigro, has posted word that they are still working on a new release for those platforms. However, work on a true native Windows 10 version has not fully started yet.
In a series of messages on his Twitter account. Nigro stated:
“We’re working on a Windows 8.1 release and preparing the Windows 10 port, it takes time for many reasons. We’ll give news :)”
“But currently, honestly, we’re still focusing on Windows 8.1 instead of Windows 10 because we think many WP8.1 won’t receive W10M.”
“We’ll start working fully W10/W10M when we think we have a good last release to send to the WP8.1 that will not see W10M.”
VLC first launched in a private beta for Windows Phone in December 2014, In February 2015, the team revealed that VLC supported both Windows Phone 8.1 and Windows 8.1 as a universal app. In October, the team reveal that the Windows Phone version had exceeded three million downloads.
