New: Try Experimental Features starting on 6.4.6 for Desktop

Good morning! We’re so happy to announce that soon we’re going to release FrostWire 6.4.6. for Windows, Mac, and Linux.

FrostWire 6.4.6. for desktop has a new advanced settings section to let you try features at your own risk.

There’s 2 kinds of features: `ALPHA` and `BETA`.

  • ALPHA features come turned off when you first install FrostWire.
  • BETA features com turned on when you first install FrostWire.

For example, the current `VPN Drop Protection` feature is still deemed alpha, we still have some important work to do, and we don’t know if it’s unstable yet to be tested by everyone out there. The feature would therefore be an opt-in feature for those who want to try ALPHA features.

Once the feature is ready for a first try with lots of users, we can promote it to `BETA` and it will be on by default on most FrostWire’s out there, except on those users curious and risk-averse enough to disable `BETA`features.

Also, if you run FrostWire from source code, ALL features are enabled by default.

Want to try it? Download FrostWire 6.4.6. pre-release today!

What is FrostWire?

FrostWire, a BitTorrent Client & YouTube Downloader that makes it easier to search, download, play and share content from the BitTorrent network & cloud sources, all in one place, announced today its new ‘preview’ and ‘play as you download’ capabilities for Android phones and tablets. The new preview feature not just enables users with a more convenient way to find and discover content, it makes downloading optional in some cases.

Get a VPN

If you want to protect your privacy while you’re browsing on the Internet, or using FrostWire, or any App, we strongly recommend you to get a VPN. VPN stands for a Virtual Private Network. It’s a service that provides you a secure encrypted connection to other computers on the internet, some VPN services also provide anonymity when connecting to servers and other computers online. If you do not connect to the internet via VPN, all information coming out of your computer, including your IP address, is open to whoever wants to access them.
