Can we get a drum roll, please? Dailymotion for Windows Phone has been updated (no, this is not a delayed April Fools) to take full advantage of the latest version of Microsoft's mobile platform. The app reveals that we're looking at version 126.96.36.199 and the update should be pushing out as we speak so be sure to keep an eye on Windows Phone Store notifications. So what's new in this release?
As mentioned above, Windows Phone 8 support is included. The app now sports a lens, where users can easily record some footage and upload the end result immediately. It's a welcomed addition to the refreshed user interface, which looks more appealing to the eye. Those who have Dailymotion accounts can login and enjoy more features that are available to members, including uploads, subscriptions and favourites.
Unfortunately, the latest version of Dailymotion doesn't sport fast resume or voice commands, which is a shame as there's definitely some potential there. From the quick few minutes we've played with the new release, the app feels more stable and we didn't experience any crashes that have plagued Dailymotion fans for months on Windows Phone. Is it a superb update? Not particularly, but the added lens is pretty neat.
Be sure to hit us up in the comments if you've spotted anything we've missed. You can download Dailymotion from the Windows Phone Store for free (both Windows Phone 7 and 8 supported). Thanks, Kaush, for the tip!
