The Metro versions of the VLC media player program sure are taking their sweet time to get here. VLC for Windows 8.1 is one of the most anticipated apps on Microsoft’s flagship platform.
And the good news is that it should hit the Windows Store any moment now. According to the developers most of the development work on the app is now complete.
Now the same can be said for the Windows Phone version of the app.
In a recent announcement, the team behind the app have confirmed that they managed to make some substantial progress with development in the Metro environment, meaning the app should be here in the coming weeks.
As WMPowerUser notes, the developers plainly confirmed that they are working on the Windows Phone 8 version of the app, without providing any further details on the matter.
Prior to this the Windows 8 and Windows RT versions of the apps were said to be in priority development, but now fans of the Windows Phone platform can also enjoy media (hopefully including the streaming options) on their device using VLC.
With things entering the final stage, chances are that we are looking at a release window between December and January, at least for the Windows 8.1 and Windows RT 8.1 flavors of the app.
