Yes, we talked about the Play To app for Lumia smartphones that run on the Windows Phone platform at the end of last week, but here are more details just in case you want to know about everything that there is to know. Available from the Nokia Beta Labs, the app itself will be made available for the Nokia Lumia 610, Nokia Lumia 710, Nokia Lumia 800 and Nokia Lumia 900, letting you enjoy closer moments with your family and friends, streaming videos and photos from your smartphone all the way to the TV thanks to DLNA connectivity. Of course, you will need a DLNA-capable device in your living room in the first place, and just to make sure you do, head on to the DLNA Certified Product Search page and look for your device. Even if you lack a DLNA device, you can always download and install it on your smartphone just for bragging rights’ sake when the situation calls for it. Of course, since it is in beta, there are known issues with it – including the Sony Bravia TV that prevents video from being shared correctly, and high resolution video too, might fail as well. There is also no support for Media Server functionality and it cannot be detected by devices like the Microsoft Xbox 360 and/or Sony Playstation 3. [Press Release]
