Is DLNA app ‘Nokia Play To’ incompatible with Windows Phone 8.1?

Play toNokia’s DLNA streaming app Nokia Play To seems is incompatible with Windows Phone 8.1 update. I tried to install it on my Lumia 525 running Windows Phone 8.1 and it gets installed on the phone, but while launching the app, one encounters the error.

Something went wrong and Nokia Play To need to close. Try restarting your phone and then reopen the app

I have tested the version 3.0 of the app earlier on a Lumia 520, so I don’t think it is a question of not supporting Lumia 525. ‘Play To’ is one of my favorite and most used app on my Lumias and as DLNA play on my 808 PureView. So I am missing it on my Lumia 525. Hope, Nokia / Microsoft fixes it soon. Are you facing similar issue with Play To or is it working fine on your Lumia runing Windows Phone 8.1?
