Popular VLC media player is getting a major Android release after a year of total silence
For starters, VLC version 2.5 adds Android Auto support along with 360-degree videos. Also, if you have a device powered by Android Oreo, you'll be able to enable PiP (Picture-in-Picture) mode in VLC.
Furthermore, a new Search activity and integration with Google Now are now included in VLC, along with a more dynamic and Material-compliant UI. You'll also notice some audio improvements in the video player and better RTL support.
Finally, both the app and the video player should now have improved startup speed. Videolabs has already released VLC 2.5 in the Google Play Store, so you can go ahead and try it out now if you need a more than decent media player.
