The first one is obviously Chromecast support. This update basically fixes most bugs and complaints with the earlier version, but we're not even complaining. The new VLC version includes 3D audio that works in tandem with the built-in 360-degree video support to offer a spatial video watching experience.

The updated player also supports 360-degree audio, which changes along with the viewpoint as you pan around a scene - essential for enjoying video via a VR headset. There is also support for more than eight audio channels to deliver a better surround sound experience than before.

VideoLAN, VLC's non-profit overlord, released the much-anticipated version 3.0 of the software last week. The new version also comes with a new subtitle rendering engine that supports ComplexTextLayout and font fallback for multiple languages and fonts, including East-Asian languages.
