BitTorrent Inc. has removed the invitation system for µTorrent Web making it in public beta. Falcon allows its users to stream the torrent content before it has finished downloading & to access there downloads anywhere with a simple GUI.
This January they launched Project Falcon, which introduced on-demand streaming and a secure web access feature called µTorrent Web.it allows users to access their downloads from anywhere through a secure web interface. Another new feature is that it allows users to stream videos so they can start watching before the download has fully finished.
The initial release of the Falcon project has been invite only since the start of the year, but now BitTorrent Inc. decided that the time was right to open it up to the public. Users can create an account and try it out, privacy and security guaranteed by BitTorrent Inc.
Aside from the features that are currently implemented, uTorrent has other big plans still in the pipeline for the new client and the web interface. Among other things, the Falcon release is expected to make it easier for users to find torrents.
The uTorrent team didn’t want to comment on how such torrent search capabilities will be integrated, but Simon Morris has stated that they are working on “better ability for torrent sites to promote content or search within the client.”
When we asked if this means that uTorrent will come with a built-in torrent search engine, Morris said that they are more interested in “APIs rather than bloating the uTorrent user experience.” We’ll see what this means in the months to come.
The current release of Falcon is µTorrent 2.1 Alpha Build 19702 is quiet stable than previous releases (Like Releases near 192xx are very buggy).
