BitTorrent has offered its uTorrent beta client for Android a facelift by updating it slightly. The update involves the option of Wi-Fi only feature. The only other point the changelog of Version 1.13 states is that stability issues of the uTorrent client for Android have been fixed. BitTorrent provided a lot more details about the first change, a small but very crucial one for downloading purposes. The Wi-Fi only feature gives the user the option to choose to download only while they are on Wi-Fi networks.
The Wi-Fi only mode downloads only while the device is in a Wi-Fi area. At other times, it pauses the download, only to resume it again while accessing a Wi-Fi network again. This relieves the user from having to incur mobile data charges while downloading media. BitTorrent calls it as intelligent downloading, possible while on-the-go. The update puts no size or speed limit on the media files to be downloaded. In addition, BitTorrent also brings RSS subscriptions to popular artists for its users.
The beta version of uTorrent for Android was launched in an unassuming manner around two months ago. The application still remains in the beta version. BitTorrent has not yet given a date for the release of the final version of the product.
The application, in spite of not being in its final form, has a lot to offer its users. At the moment, the other mobile operating systems like Windows Phone, iOS and BlackBerry do not seem to be getting this interesting application. As for iOS, it is unlikely that uTorrent for this OS will be released, at least not anytime soon. Apple does not allow the many BitTorrent clients and remote clients of iOS into the App Store.
The new version of uTorrent beta for Android can be downloaded from Google Play Store.
