MX Player now is not only a media player for our smartphones but it also has a streaming service to watch free movies, series, shows and an ample amount of videos. They are ad-supported but free to stream and download. If you download the videos, you can watch them later when you don’t have network access. If you have network access at the moment, you can watch tonnes of shows instantly. This feature built into the application complements the online free streaming service that they have started. Looking at their content library, it seems that they are targeting users in India and fans of media production that come out of the region. You will find a lot of movies in Hindi, Telugu, Tamil, Bhojpuri and Malayam. Not to worry, as we can also find videos in English or which have been translated across several languages. There is also music but it is limited to their web version for now. So, MX Player is not only a media player app for your Android smartphone but it also offers entertainment and streaming services.
