Finnish cell phone giant Nokia has announced the Nokia Play To app for Symbian 3 smartphones which lets the user share media wirelessly over the network, a report said.

The app, which is still in its beta stages, includes DLNA (Digital Living Network Alliance), which is a platform that lets various portable devices share media flawlessly. The technology was previously found on Android smartphones, a few media players and TVs. Sony developed DLNA in June 2003.

Nokia handsets like Nokia C6-01, C7-00, N8 and E7-00 will have the advantage of the platform as they can log on to a Wi-fi network and share media files such as videos, songs and pictures that have been clicked from the handsets.

The application is still in its developing stages and has been made free for download. Other devices like TV and home network, however, will also need to have the DLNA certification to make use of the application, the Tech2 website reported.
