Popcorn Time for Android updated to beta 2.3 adding subtitle support The team behind Popcorn Time has unveiled the latest update for the Android version of the popular software.
Updates are a bit smaller than previous releases, but many movie fans will be happy with subtitle support for TV shows, and subtitle support for Chromecast.

Says the company:

So what's new?

Subtitles support on Chromecast!!! Yes, you've all been asking nicely for a while now, we promised that it was in the works, and here it is!!! Now you can watch Popcorn Time from your Android on your TV screen with subtitles!! Woohoo :)

***DESKTOP USERS: Since Google blocked our subtitles on Chromecast solution, we've been working very hard on finding a work around which will bring back the subtitles support on Chromecast for you all. We're happy to say that we found a way to make this work and this solution will be released in a few days, so stay tuned!!

Subtitles for TV shows!!! Yes, you've all been asking nicely for a while.. ;-)

Favorites!! Mark what you want to watch so you can queue it up and watch it later!! Just click the <3 in the movie/TV show details view and it's added to your favorites list. Don't want it there anymore? Just give it a long "click" and it will be removed.

Subtitles can be changed while watching a movie on your device or on Chromecast! In case you suddenly realize you speak a different language and you want to see subtitles in that language...

On this new version you can also change the VLC player hardware acceleration in settings.

Crash report!! This is awesome for us (and you as well!!). If application crashes you can easily send us a crash report so we'll see what caused it to crash and fix it for next time...

Portrait orientation

We did some general bug fixes and improvements. In general. ;-)
Enjoy everyone!!! GOOOOOOO ANDROID!!


Overall, a very nice upgrade which should improve performance and add some more subtle features. You can get it here.

Best app for ANY device all year long.

Kinda thinkin' that Popcorn Time should be up for Nobel Peace Prize.
