BitTorrent, the company that develops and maintains the BitTorrent protocol as well as the BitTorrent and the uTorrent software applications, has announced that the uTorrent 3.0 app has reached another important milestone in its development process. And to be more precise, the application has moved past the Alpha milestone and is now available for download as a Beta.

“We are excited to announce that the first beta build of µTorrent 3.0 is here. It’s packed with new features and updates with a focus on convenience and a better, more streamlined user experience,” announced Jordy Berson, Director of Product Management, uTorrent.

If you would like to get uTorrent 3.0 Beta, you can download it here. The regular Beta warnings apply: the application may work poorly, it may not work at all, it may have bugs, it may drive you up the walls. Do not get uTorrent 3.0 Beta unless you understand what it means to Beta test a product.

On the upside, if you do get uTorrent 3.0 Beta you will enjoy a bunch of cool new features. The following ones:

- You can minimize parts of the interface and get a simplified view of uTorrent. You can minimize the parts that don’t interest you and focus on the ones that do interest you.

- A new streaming feature that lets you preview videos before starting a download or watch videos before the download completes.

- A new rating and comment feature that comes in handy when trying to decide if you want to download something or not. You can simply take a look at the feedback provided by other users who downloaded that torrent and make up your mind if you want to get it or not.

- Send large files from within uTorrent. After you drag and drop the file you want to send onto the “Drag files to send” box, uTorrent will create a link that you can give to others or post on social networking sites. When someone clicks that link he will be able to download the file. If that someone doesn’t have uTorrent, he can download an app bundled with the file.

- uTorrent Remote lets you access uTorrent from another computer or from a mobile device. You can remotely start, stop, add, and monitor torrents.

- uTorrent is portable, you can run the torrent client from a USB stick.

- Enhance the functionality uTorrent has to offer by getting apps from the App Studio.
