VLC for Android beta released in Google Play Store
After a long wait, the beta version of VLC Player for Android is finally available in Google Play Store. Dubbed as Neon, the beta version of this popular desktop media player only supports the devices powered by ARMv7 processors; however more variants are on the way to support other devices.

As expected the Android version brings several features that are present in desktop version to mobile like ability to play local files as well as network streams.


  • Plays most local video and audio files, as well as network streams
  • Houses media library for audio and video files, and allows browsing folders directly.
  • Support for multi-track audio and subtitles. Also comes with support for auto-rotation, aspect-ratio adjustments and gestures to control volume.
  • Includes a widget for audio control, supports audio headsets control, covert art and a complete audio media library.

"This version is not meant for everyone," noted VLC team in the Google Play listing. There are still several bugs to fix and it is slower than the final version.
