Nokia “Play To” Just About to Drop for Windows Phone 8
A couple weeks back, we learned that Nokia could be working on an update to bring some features that existed in its Windows Phone 7 lineup to the company’s Windows Phone 8 Lumia. At the time, we were talking about a flip-to-silence mode, but also mentioned other old features that could be making the leap to WP8, including DLNA support by means of the company’s Play To app. It’s now looking like the latter, at least, really is just around the corner, with word tonight that its release is just another week or two away.
This news comes from a Nokia staffer on the company’s Beta Labs forums, responding to user inquiries. We realize, such a promise is slightly less reliable than news formally posted to Nokia’s blog, or given outright in a press release, but this employee states the app’s arrival quite matter-of-factly, and without leaving much room for ambiguity.
Based on that timetable, it would make a lot of sense to see Play To for Windows Phone 8 featured among what Nokia intends to show off at the MWC, with the software’s public release either occurring right then or slightly afterward.
