Nokia pushing out fix for Play To, addresses issues with GDR3 Developer Preview

Nokia recently confirmed issues with an update for Play To on Windows Phone, which enables users to stream media, such as photos, music and videos to other DLNA enabled devices. The issue was that those running the GDR3 Developer Preview and the latest version of the app were missing crucial software components required for both to get along in harmony.

Today, Nokia has unveiled a fix, which should hit the store in a week or so. 

If you have been suffering from the black screen bug in Play To and are running the GDR3 Developer Preview, it's because you're missing some important components the app requires. There are two ways for this issue to be resolved. The first is an automatic fix with the Lumia Black release – which has only just kicked off – alongside a version 3.0 update for Play To from Nokia.

The second option, since it may take some time for all affected users to receive Lumia Black, is to wait for the company to release a fix, which is expected to be published in a week's time. We'll keep you posted as to when the fix is available.
