BitTorrent has released a native uTorrent client for Android devices. This is the first official uTorrent app from the uTorrent team that has been released for Android devices. Using this app, Android users will be able to search torrents, download, subscribe to RSS feeds and play videos. The beta release is available for download from Google Play for free.
With the release of this new app, BitTorrent is trying to cater to the huge demand for torrent clients with Android devices. This new release has been well received by Android users although iOS users will be disappointed to know that no such release for them is around the corner. This release has not come across as a surprise as there had been reports in February about BitTorrent working on a mobile app for Android users.
In the official blog of uTorrent, the team was quoted saying,”For the past few months our engineers have been hard at work developing a mobile BitTorrent app that is worthy of the name “µTorrent.” They added that team’s focus was to develop an app that is fast, light, powerful and better than any other app currently in the market. Users can try out the beta version of uTorrent app from Google Play store.
Although the client is the first from BitTorrent, it is not the only torrent client available in the market. Main rivals of the uTorrent client from BitTorrent are tTorrent, aTorrent, Frostwire and aDownloader all of which has already been downloaded by millions of Android users.
