VK, originally VKontakte, is a very large social networking site that’s popular in Russian-speaking countries. Russia is of course where it’s super popular, but it enjoys a healthy following in Ukraine, Azerbaijan, Kazakhstan, Moldova Belarus and Israel. Today the official Windows Phone app has been updated to take advantage of a great new feature found in Windows Phone 8.1 – People hub integration.
Head into the Windows Phone Store and you’ll find VK (vk.com) at version 3.2. Here’s what you get with this version:
- People hub integration
- Bug fixes
We don’t have a VK profile, but we’re impressed with the people hub integration. As you may or may not know, Facebook and Facebook Beta are the only two major apps officially in the Windows Phone Store with People hub integration. Those who nabbed the beta version of Twitter will also have it, but that’s still not technically official. To us that means VK is the first app to get People hub integration outside Facebook.
Congrats to them and we hope anyone with a VK account enjoys. Let us know what you think of the integration!
Thanks for the tip Denis!
