New µTorrent 3.0 Beta – Streaming, Sending, Remote Access and More

We are excited to announce that the first beta build of µTorrent 3.0 is here (download). It’s packed with new features and updates with a focus on convenience and a better, more streamlined user experience. Highlights include:

Now watch videos much sooner with our new streaming feature. By using progressive/sequential download techniques, start watching before your download completes, or simply preview content before committing to a full download.

The new rating and comment feature also helps you to assess torrent files with immediate feedback from other users who have previously downloaded the same torrent. 

Easily send large files – for example home movies, large videos taken with your cell, and photos – to your friends directly from µTorrent. Select any file on your computer, drag it into the µTorrent “Drag files to send” box and µTorrent will create a Web link. Enter a friend’s email address or post the link to social media. Recipients can easily download the torrent, or if they don’t have µTorrent, download an app bundled with the file. Simple!

µTorrent Remote
Access your µTorrent client through a Web-based user interface from another computer or mobile device. Start, stop and monitor torrents in addition to adding new torrents. µTorrent Remote is also available in our new Android app. Check it out here.

New Simplified View 
At any time, you may now minimize parts of the µT interface for a simplified view of the client. Not only does this assist new users by focusing attention on the most important client features, but it also allows anyone to cut out distractions to focus on the business of finding, getting and playing content. 

Portable Mode 

Now, run your µTorrent client directly from a USB key, and take it with you wherever you go.

Additional Apps Available
New apps are always being added to your Apps Studio. Apps include our Spotlight artist, content catalogues like Khan Academy and TEDtalks, plus  feature apps that add great new functionality to your µTorrent client. As always, µTorrent apps allow you to choose only the features you want, giving you control over your client size and experience.

Other Improvements
µTorrent 3.0 also has many updates and improvements for increased performance and stability. It has improved Web seeding that speeds up the process of finding the original source of a single-source file and takes out the uncertainty of whether or not you can find and download the file.

Thank you in advance for downloading the µTorrent 3.0 beta. Your feedback.will be invaluable in advance of the full release. Better still, stop by the IdeaBank to contribute or vote on your favorite feature ideas. And many thanks to all the testers who downloaded the alpha version and shared your feedback. It’s really appreciated.

    In the new 3.0 beta, it is no longer possible to column sort the percent complete column (Status)… 🙁 in the previous versions it was possible to have either ascending or descending values (percentages) for this column

    This is fantastic, I have been using this for a couple of weeks now and it works great. I’m glad I updated my computer so I could game on it cause this works so much smoother.

  • poor poor me

    yep, exactly why I went with utorrent in the first place.

    because I wanted more bloat.

  • dennis

    This release seems to fix my 2.1/2.2 problem with a very slow startup on a (very old) 512M/DDR XP PC where it would overload the CPU/DISK for about 1 minute whenever starting a new download.

    Love uTorrent 3. Haven’t tested the 64bit client as I have serious seeding & downloading to do. I find there are few to none when it comes to errors except for currently.

    I just downloaded utorrent – I had to do this manually as the download the site gave me days ago was not .25345. This makes no sense since this beta was out when I was fed a earlier version.

    What upsets is that the version I received was actually one of the first with a serious bug. It was hogging all amounts of resource and visible anywhere in the system. Cursor, video, anything & everything.

    Obviously whatever the bug, it’s since been squashed, but when notification of an update was needed the most, the system failed. If I didn’t know & have whatever experience I do, the pc could have, should have crashed, causing messes that come from these incidents.

    Mind you I’m not complaining about the prior bugged beta, we know the possible dangers (or should), I am complaining & whining about the lack of notification… A buggy version happened, it was fixed and we were none the wiser.

    Could it be that it’s bugs prevented the usual pause for an upgrade notification? Whatever it was I hope you know where the problem was.

    I really like uTorrent & more each day, some of the new ideas being outstanding. Please keep it that way.

    Is there any interest in a bill-to-phone option for charging your customers?

    I recently installed utorrent 3.0 and decided to uninstall it immediately. My operating system is Windows Vista Home Premium and my Internet Explorer version is 9.

    After uninstalling utorrent 3.0, I can no longer watch any videos. When I click on any video, I get the error message that I must install the latest version of Flash Player which I have several times: Version I have even turned off my virus protector during the installation and have enabled active x scripting in my browser. I even uninstalled and reinstalled the lates version of JAVA: JAVA 6 Update 27 (build 1.6.0_27-b07).

    I am at a complete loss to know where to procede next!
