Version 12.9.7 of the UC Browser is now available, and it comes with multiple improvements and some new additions. For example, the latest version allows you to customize your homepage by adding festival themes.
The homepage toolbar has now a new section, just for videos. By tapping its button you will be able to play various short videos. The browser also allows you to download them, and if you want to show your friends one of the videos, you can share it as a WhatsApp status.
This tab has two sections: “Recommend” and “UC Show”. The Recommend section is for horizontal videos, while the UC Show one displays vertical videos. The browser also offers support for non-buffering video playback when you use a Wi-Fi connection.
Find Diyas, Win Prizes
The browser has a campaign titled “Find Diyas, Win Prizes”, which promises gifts for the users who manage to find Diyas. Rewards vary from UCoins to other prizes. Those who want to earn UCoins will be happy to hear that it will be easier to do this by performing various tasks such as reading, sharing, and commenting on the news.
You will also get five UCoins for searching, website viewing, video playing, bookmarking, and downloading. Make sure that you are signed in to the UC Centre in order to receive your rewards.
