8 Zip Lite now lets you unpack any archive file type

Users of 8 Zip's free version are in for a treat, as a feature previously reserved for the paid version is now available to all. Thanks to its latest update, 8 Zip Lite now carries support for unpacking all archive formats. Previously, the Lite version of the app only supported unpacking the .zip format.

From the changelog:

  • Now 8 Zip Lite can unpack all archive formats, before it was possible only in paid version.

If you haven't yet had a chance to check out 8 Zip, the app allows you to archive or unpack all sorts of archive file types. The app also boasts a number of extra features like music and video playback, Continuum and Windows Hello support and more. To top it all off, 8 Zip recently went fully universal across both Windows 10 PC and Mobile, so it's worth checking out.
