Plex arranges your videos, photos, and music so you can access and share them to any screen. Today, Plex received another update adding Plex Home support, playlist support, and a number of fixes to some other features. Plex’s update is available now on Windows Phone and Windows 8.1, and as it’s a universal app, so is the update.
With Plex, you can access all of your media to any TV (as long as you are running Plex Media Server on your home PC) in your home from your Windows device. At the moment, there is no Windows support for Google Chromecast, but that may be an option in another update. Here is a complete list of the new features and fixes in the newest Plex update:
- Plex Home support
