BitTorrent has launched a stable version of the uTorrent web, a web-based torrent client that allows users to download and play torrent files in the browser itself.
uTorrent web was available in the beta version previously, and now the stable version has been launched by BitTorrent, the company that owns BitTorrent and uTorrent. The specialty of uTorrent Web is the fact that users can play audio and video before the downloading finishes. The streaming happens inside the browser. The company has said that the web version will go by the name “uTorrent Classic.”
Once you have installed uTorrent web, you can search for content from the search box present in the web version and on other torrent sites as well. Files can be streamed instantly, and playback is lag free. If the subtitles are included in the torrent file, they are automatically added to the videos.
The web version also provides options like choosing the language you want to use, your default download folder and the option to open torrents in a new tab. Moreover, you can also pick uTorrent web as your default torrent client.
According to BitTorrent, the web client of uTorrent will make it easy for users to download and stream torrent files.
“With a simple download to play experience as the focal point of µTorrent Web, we see more users successfully downloading and playing torrents than with any other product in BitTorrent’s history.”
uTorrent Classic is compatible with the Windows platform across different browsers such as Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, Internet Explorer, Opera, and Microsoft Edge.
BitTorrent has said that the web client is available for Windows as of now, but they have plans to make it available for other operating systems as well.
