VLC 3.2.3 Update for Android is Introducing Bug Fix for Subtitles “Lost On Multitasking” Error

VLC is the media player that you need if you want to watch entertaining videos on both your PC and smartphone. The Android version of VLC can play any video and audio files but not just that, the app also supports network streams, network shares, drivers and ISO files. Although, this is not the best thing about VLC. What truly makes VLC shine is the fact that the media player is updated on a constant basis with improvements and today we are going to check out the latest update.

VLC 3.2.3 Update

The new update is changing VLC’s version number to 3.2.3 and we are advising everyone who enjoys using the media player to keep their smartphones connected to a stable Wi-Fi network so that they can be among the first ones to download it.
