Dailymotion reveals overhaul of Window 8 Phone app
Dailymotion has unveiled a revamp of its Windows Phone 8 app at the Mobile World Congress, which has featured services including Facebook connect, mobile upload and video discovery.
Dailymotion users can now share videos with friends directly from the app using the Windows Phone’s social integration, including via Facebook,which has been fully integrated for instant publication on Timeline and immediate social distribution.
The app’s new upload features include direct publication from any Windows Phone 8 smartphone, with the option to choose from videos already saved in a local library or to record and upload videos on-demand.
Adaptive bit-rate controls and quality optimisation have also been utilised to offer better network usage while limiting mobile bandwidth consumption.
Additionally, Dailymotion’s Windows Phone 8 app will highlight new content from Dailymotion’s library through instant Live Tile updates on the device’s Start screen.
Vincent Martin, VP distribution and business development at Dailymotion, said: “We are always working to find new ways to allow users to share their creativity with the world and discover new content that inspires them, and this updated Windows Phone 8 app is the perfect tool to do just that.”
“Apps come to life on Windows Phone thanks to features like Live Tiles, Lenses and deep social media integration,” said Todd Brix, general manager, Windows Phone Apps, Microsoft Corp. “Dailymotion takes advantage of all these features and more to enable users to both discover and share their own videos in new and interesting ways.”
The new app is scheduled for release to the Windows Phone 8 store in April.
