“Play To” DLNA App for Lumia’s Already Available in Marketplace

| June 24, 2012 | 36 Replies

A second app that was promised in the WP Summit besides the “camera extensions” which were released yesterday was the Nokia Play to DLNA app; which allows you to share content from your phone onto any device that’s connected to your wireless network (Tv, Laptop, tablet etc..).

   The Play to app was also promised to come “in the following weeks” yet has made it to the store in under three days, so once again Kudos to Nokia for the fast action, if only the phones were deployed this fast :)

One Point I’d like to make that might sound a little silly is the name of the app, not that there’s anything wrong with “Play to” I just wish it was called “Nokia Play To”  that way it would be grouped Under the letter “N” along with Nokia Tv,Music, Reading, maps, Drive, Transport (you get the idea); acting as a simple reminder that Nokia offers SO many services to their users; like I said… Kind of silly.

To find the App you might have to “see all apps by Nokia corporation” as it currently sin’t showing up under the “nokia collection” of the marketplace; alternatively you could just scan the QR code below and save some time.

    Not bad, but don’t see a need for it as I have never streamed anything from my phone to any device. If I record a video on my Lumia 800, I’ll just straight away load up Zune to copy it directly to my PC and watch it from there, but hey, that’s just me.

    I also saw this on the Malaysian Marketplace just now but have to click on the ‘Nokia Corporation’ link too to find it as it isn’t listed in the Nokia Collection list.

        thanks!”

        Same case here. Can’t download it at all and I’m on the Malaysian Marketplace. Only that Play To app is downloadable.

      Same here, not something use all that often, but nice to have handy.

    Still playing Catch Up the 808..not there yet..

    • Just Visiting says:

      @Paul Grenfeld…Not sure why your comment was made; The LG Windows Phones already have a DLNA app installed on their devices, and Nokia is simply bringing the apps originally launched on Symbian to Windows Phone.

      Perhaps Nokia will even bring Nokia Reading to Symbian devices.

    your right with the name the name is very important thing! look at lumia name samsung galaxy 3 and the iphones 1,2,3,4, and playstation1,2,3 .should have called it Nokia play too. for me nokia are still great & this time next year i think ms & nokia will be releasing a phone out called the XPHONE. (xbox 360,xbox 720)

  4. Colm says:

    • kunwar says:

      that waas the beta version , in the beta you could only stream photos and videos only, but in this version v1.2 you can stram music also

    • Jay Montano says:

      That’s what I was thinking too but then realised I downloaded it from betalabs. I remember disliking the app because I found it unintuitive and could not get it to work.

  5. John says:

    N9 has something similar but more sophisticated in the form of: Push-UP+Tweak-UP+Helium

    Solid start though, and hopefully they continue to build on it.

  6. Petey says:

    Doesn’t work with my crappy Sony BDV-E970 and Lumia 900. Nokia E7 works just fine. What is the problem? Help anyone.

  7. invertol says:
