Microsoft has announced that multimedia app ‘Plex‘ is now live and available on Xbox One today. Plex for Xbox One is available immediately as a Plex Pass Preview to Plex Pass subscribers for free.
Plex for Xbox 360 is also free to Plex Pass subscribers and will be available soon. For those without a Plex Pass, Plex for Xbox One and Xbox 360 will be made available in the future for a one-time fee. The apps initially support video only, but rest assured that Microsoft are working hard to add music and photos. The Xbox app requires the latest version of the Plex Media Server, so be sure to upgrade today.
In the new Xbox apps, you’ll find a newly-designed UI and several new discovery features that Microsoft are planning to bring to other big-screen apps over time. Your media’s artwork will now take center stage as you browse through your video collection, where you will marvel at the new ways to explore your media, including awesome ways to discover similar content and receive personalized suggestions based on your own viewing habits.
