Android beta 2.3 is here!!!

Hey lovely Androiders,

We didn't forget you with the whole hype around .....

On the contrary!! We've been hard at work on beta 2.3 and it came out fab!!

So what's new?

1. Subtitles support on Chromecast!!! Yes, you’ve all been asking nicely for a while now, we promised that it was in the works, and here it is!!! Now you can watch . from your Android on your TV screen with subtitles!! Woohoo :)
***DESKTOP USERS: Since Google blocked our subtitles on Chromecast ., we’ve been working very hard on finding a work around which will bring back the subtitles support on Chromecast for you all. We’re happy to say that we found a way to make this work and this . will be released in a few days, so stay tuned!!

2. Subtitles for TV shows!!! Yes, you’ve all been asking nicely for a while.. ;-)

3. Favorites!! Mark what you want to watch so you can queue it up and watch it later!! Just click the <3 in the movie/TV show details view and it’s added to your favorites list. Don’t want it there anymore? Just give it a long “click” and it will be removed.

4. Subtitles can be changed while watching a movie on your device or on Chromecast! In case you suddenly realize you speak a different language and you want to see subtitles in that language…

5. On this new . you can also change the VLC player hardware . in settings.

6. Crash report!! This is awesome for us (and you as well!!). If . crashes you can easily send us a crash report so we’ll see what caused it to crash and fix it for next time…

7. Portrait .

8. We did some general bug fixes and improvements. In general. ;-)

Enjoy :mrgreen:
