The official VLC app for Windows 8 users has been greatly expected, and it finally got released with a huge delay. And now, also quite late, the app has been updated for the Windows 8.1 version.

Available for a few good months on the Windows Store, the official VLC app for Windows 8 has seen a huge revamp which makes it fully compatible with Windows 8.1. VideoLAN said the following on the release notes – “In this update, we rewrote most of the application to be ported to 8.1. This update should improve a lot the decoding speed. This should also fix numerous bugs and crashes.”

However, the team also was quick to remind that this is still a beta version, which is quite annoying. The updated app comes with a very simple menu on the left, instead of the top. There’s also a search bar, followed by a home, videos, and music tab. When you’re home, you get a snapshot of your video and audio library.

What’s interesting is that this new design is almost the same as a recent early screenshot shared by a VideoLAN developer on Twitter, and which was aimed for Windows 10. So, this means that, most likely, the Windows 8.1 design will be the same as for Windows 10.
