No longer do carriers need to wait for a customized app release, as anyone using that particular HTC smartphone can always head on to Google Play to see what app has been updated by HTC themselves. This time around, it would be the HTC Video Player that has received an update, where this app enables one to play back streaming video as well as locally stored content using what has been described to be “powerful decoding capabilities.”

Well, what are you waiting for? Any update to most apps would be worth checking out right from the get go, and this is no exception.
