The Official Dailymotion Windows Phone app is redesigned with the latest update


Dailymotion.com is a popular website that has a collection of over 40 million videos that include movie trailer, music videos, humorous videos and more. The Dailymotion Windows Phone app is the official app for the website and delivers the site's video contents to the small screen of your Windows Phone.

The app was updated today to version 3.0 which likely includes the customary minor bug fixes and performance tweaks but most notably gives the Windows Phone app a new look.

The redesign comes across a little cleaner than the previous installments with pages highlighting recommended videos as well as videos from the Cinema, Music and Sports channels.

Dailymotion Screens

You also have access to your own videos, playlists and favorites from your Dailymotion account. Don't have a Dailymotion account? No worries, you can still access the full video library without a membership.

There isn't a change log available for this latest update but it appears that the update also adds an Age Gate setting to allow uncensored material/adult content to be viewed. If you pick up on any other new features with the version 3.0 update to Dailymotion, let us know in the comments below.

The official Dailymotion Windows Phone app is free, available for Windows Phone 8 and 7.x devices. Please note that the update only applies to the Windows Phone 8 version of the app. For those looking prefer videos from a larger screen, Dailymotion also offers a Windows 8 version that is also free.

Thanks, littledictator, for the tip!

Just checked and yes, you do have an age gate setting which will allow videos that "may not be suitable for younger viewers".

Alot of unused space there. Fill it up with more content instead a huge font that takes up a nice amount of screen real estate. I wish developers would see this in their apps and do what the Xbox music team has done with their app.

Dailymotion is a good place to see all the uncensored stuff, much more freedom than youtube :)

Yes it plays really smooth. I installed the app and already played a couple of videos using Wi-fi. For HD videos, there is a way to turn off HD by simply tapping on the screen.

Tried it me self... Looks good... Watched few videos... But its buffering a lot even though I have a decent internet connection... Youtube plays smooth... This one buffers.... :/

Microsoft should buy Dailymotion and pit this against YouTube.  If you can't beat them, buy up a competitor and then try to compete!

The French government would make it really difficult for them to buy DM though.

Because if they bought it then there would probably be this big outcry for MS to make sure all the content is filtered for nudity and profanity like YouTube. Better they leave it alone.....

I heard somewhere, that French government not allowing Microsoft to buy dailymotion, because they don't want all the EU companys to be under USA companies. And I hope that Microsoft won't buy it so it will have no restrictions like YouTube. But otherwise I'd like Microsoft to buy it to compete with YouTube. Meh if Microsoft would cooperates with dailymotion it would be damn great.

Liked the previous DailyMotion app and was excited to update to this new version.  When I did this, it would not run.  So I hard booted my phone.  Still would not run, so I uninstalled the app and reinstalled the new one.  It will now run, but all of my Favorites are not listed.  So not sure just what to do, particularly since I can see my Favorites via the website.  Anyone else having this problem and more importantly a solution?

Okay, may have found an answer to my problem and a possible bug.  When a look at my Favorites and they are sorted "Most Viewed" the Favorites screen is blank.  But when I change the sort order to "Most Recent" they magically appear.  It I return the sort order to "Most Viewed", they disappear again.  So, if I don't sort to Most Viewed, I can see my Favorites.

Google don't want to make any apps to their competitive companies that are still not quite popular. This is because google don't want people to switch to Windows phone
