BitTorrent has announced an alpha test for a new version of its uTorrent client: uTorrent Plus. The company is planning to charge users of the new desktop app $25 a year, for extra features including transcoding and syncing. That means making it easier for users to convert their downloaded files into suitable formats for their various other devices, then transferring them over. “µTorrent Plus offers a few key things our users have been asking for, most importantly play any file on any device and added security,” says director of product management Jordy Berson. “While we are fully committed to the free µTorrent, we’re really excited to offer people something new.” We sense rightsholders may be somewhat less excited about the new client. Source: GigaOm
