Two days after a revamped version of the VLC Windows 8.1 app went live in the Windows Store, a new update to that app finally adds support for Windows RT. That means owners of the Surface RT and Surface 2 tablets, among other Windows RT-based products, can check out the popular media player for the first time.
The announcement was made today by Thomas Nigro, the main developer of the universal VLC app for Windows 8.1, Windows RT and Windows Phone, via his Twitter account. Keep in mind that this update just went live in the Windows Store, so it may take several hours for the Windows RT version to become available for everyone.
Nigro has already stated that the shared code for the universal app means that updates for all of the Windows versions should go out quicker from now on, with the goal of getting out one update a week.
