Nokia Play To gets test version for Lumias

Nokia gave Windows Phone owners a rare experiment Friday. Play To should give at least Nokia's own phones, like the Lumia 800, the ability to share their photos and videos through DLNA. The option allows sharing to Blu-ray players, desktop apps, and some TVs.

Audio is currently left out of the Play To app, which is still in active enough testing that Nokia is asking for as much feedback as possible. Some known bugs include compatibility with some Sony Bravia TVs and higher-resolution clips. Media server support isn't yet included and currently rules out the PS3 and Xbox 360 as targets.

DLNA support isn't new in Windows Phone and was present in our LG Optimus 7 when the platform launched in fall 2010. Relatively few devices have supported it since, however.
