VideoLAN's multi-talented VLC media player has taken a while to reach Android in finished form -- long enough that the developers revived the iOS app in the meantime. At last, though, it appears to be ready for prime time. The team has updated VLC for Android (you may see the old version listed for a short while) to drop the beta tag, making it officially complete. That's not entirely true in practice, mind you. The version notes still talk about previous fixes for Android 5.0 Lollipop and devices using newer ARMv8 processors, and Chromecast streaming support (unveiled in June) still isn't here. This is more of a formality than a major update, then, but it's still an important milestone for one of the better-known audiovisual apps.
