    VLC for Windows has been updated for Windows 10, now featuring a new name. Having previously been called VLC for Windows 8, the app is now referred to as VLC for Windows Store.

    "Its been a long time since we updated the VLC app on the Windows Store. Last update was released on May, 19th, and April 23rd on Windows Phone. Today, were releasing an update on VLC for Windows 8.1 and Windows 10. It has been optimized to run flawlessly on Windows 10. This new version brings tons of changes and bugfixes," app developer Thomas Nigro stated in an official blog post.

    So what's new in this major update? First of all, the user interface has received a major overhaul to match the new Windows 10 style. The app is supposed to run faster on lower-end devices like the Surface RT and Lumia 520/620. There are new animations and a beta version of the Win2D component. The app also features improvements to the music library, video library, search, and more.

    I have the latest "desktop" version of VLC. Does the metro version have any advantages over the desktop version? Is there an advantage in having both? All I see in the store is VLC for Windows 8, is that it?
