This New Beta Version of VLC Is Made for Windows 10, Xbox One and HoloLens

VLC is already available for Windows 10, but this recently released “modern” beta runs on the Universal Windows Platform. This means it will get some special features, including Cortana support and live tiles, and it will be perfect for Xbox One, Windows tablets, and even HoloLens when it launches.

Although this version of VLC is in beta testing, it still does pretty much everything that the regular version of Windows does. You will have access to local and remote video libraries, music playback and everything else.

Beyond that, there are tons of Windows 10-specific features like Cortana support, Live Tiles, Album Pinning, and Continuum. Right now, the beta version of VLC supports Windows 10 desktops, tablets and mobile devices. More interesting is the promised support for Xbox One, Surface Hub and Hololens coming soon. While you have been able to use the desktop version of VLC with Windows 10 for a while now, this version contains some Windows 10-specific features that might be worth checking out.
