A new update is now being rolled out for the VLC app for iOS devices. The app’s version has now been bumped up to version 3.1.0 and the changelog mentions that VLC for iOS now has full Chromecast support, a feature that was often requested by users. This means that iOS users who have VLC installed will now be able to stream local content to a TV through the Chromecast.
Chromecast support was one of the most highly requested features by VLC for iOS users and the company has finally listened to them and added the feature to its app. The changelog also mentions that a bug which prevented files on the phone to not be displayed in the app has also been fixed.
Users will finally also be able to watch 360 videos by moving the phone around instead of having to do that manually by swiping on the screen. The app update delivers stability and performance improvements when decoding H.264/H.265 and improved audio playback quality.
Additional bug fixes address issues where users couldn’t log into Google Drive and where downloaded files might disappear. The latest version of VLC, one of the most popular free media players, is now available for download from the App Store.
