The uTorrent team just rolled out the invite only alpha release of uTorrent Plus.
Plus is a paid version of the leading BitTorrent client that will enable users to convert videos and transfer files to external devices. It also comes with built in anti-virus, remote file-transfers and a built in media player.
TorrentFreak readers, 500 in total, get a unique chance to give uTorrent Plus a spin for free as part of the testing community. The license key is valid for 13 months so it’s not limited to the early alpha releases alone.
“The feedback we receive from our early testers is invaluable,” .” uTorrent’s Director of Product Management Jordy Berson told TorrentFreak.
“While we are always committed to ongoing development of the free µTorrent, µTorrent Plus offers features people have been requesting for a long time: play any file on any device and added security. We’re really excited for this new version.”
The stable version of uTorrent Plus will be available in a few months. What it will cost, and whether it will be heavily pirated as a result, has yet to be seen.
