The ‘Netflix for Pirates’ has just gotten insanely better for Android users

Popcorn Time users who get their Netflix-style pirated movie fix on Android devices will be extremely happy to hear that the “company” has come up with a brand new version of its Android app that brings some awesome features to the table.

Popcorn Time for Android has reached Android beta 2.1, which brings built-in VPN support, a feature that can help out with hiding your torrent streaming traces, but also support for a vast majority of devices.

In fact, starting with Android beta 2.1, Popcorn Time will work with smartphones and tablets running Android 4.0 or later (rather than Android 4.2, the previous minimum OS requirements).

Moreover, the developers have further tweaked the app’s performance, improving Chromecast functionality, as well as movie loading times.

“The whole experience is much smoother,” developers say, “and we also fixed many minor annoying bugs while we were at it.

Finally, a Popcorn Time version for iOS will be here “soon,” developers say.

To download the new Android app beta version, check the source link below – but also remember that Popcorn Time is still a service that enables movie piracy, and using it may get you in trouble, so make sure you understand how it works before proceeding.
