App Reviews

  • Don't recast when the app opens

    By JonNRb
    Please for the love of f**k fix this. The Google Cast spec _explicitly_ says you are not supposed to start a new session unless the user initiates a new session. If I, let's say, start casting YouTube or turn off my TV, when I open Plex again it thinks it's time to cast again. This turns on my TV or interrupts something else. Stop.
  • Doesn’t work without internet

    By Bulle72
    The main reason for using Plex is to play media for my children while travelling. I use a WD MyPassport WirelessPro running Plex. The only problem is that if you don’t have a working internet connection the whole system doesn’t work. It’s very frustrating and defeats the purpose for me. I have reverted to downloading content on Netflix and iTunes and let them watch that.
  • Happy for a long time

    By Raze Tepes
    Recently upgraded to lifetime. Can’t recommend enough.
  • There remote connections are broken.

    By Frank Panduh
    Been a plex pass user for years, they recently broke the Remote connections and haven’t fixed it for months. Use EMBY till they fix it. It’s been like 4 updates and no fix or contact from support. I hold hope that one day it will be a great service again. Until then use anything that works.
  • No lossless ALAC sync to iPhone?

    By rjcola27
    I am a new user who pays monthly for pass as well. I’ve been very happy with two exceptions. 1. This is a Roku issue but I’ll mention it here anyway just in case someone from Plex is reading this. I really want gapless music playback. You can’t listen to albums from Pink Floyd and side two of Abbey Road like this. It’s very annoying to say the least! 2. From my windows computer I want to sync ALAC 16/44 lossless to my iPhone for offline playback. Why can’t this be done? Why does it have to be converted to MP3 first? I know I can download directly from my phone but if I’m on my windows computer already I should be able to make it happen from there as well.
  • Desyncs with Chromecast

    By texjer
    I have to restart the Plex app a lot because it just stops controlling Chromecast.

    If you have an iPad it does not work at all
  • New interface is not intuitive at all!!

    By fonehome
    Bring back old unified library. Simple swipe from left showed me all my sources as is still available on the webpage. New design makes it insanely more difficult to find my sources. Have to go to three diff sections why before was in one place. And please change that volume control interface. Don’t need all the controls coming up when just changing volume.
  • AirPod connection needs attention

    By pilchak1
    After months of going back and forth, I finally took the plunge and paid full price for the Lifetime Plex Pass. I must say, i was immediately disappointed by the poor interfacing with my AirPods. In particular, if I pause the music by a double tap to my AirPod, and the phone goes to sleep before I want to restart the music, the app will not play music to the AirPods again without closing and rebooting the app. To be explicit, connectivity is not restored by a double tap of the AirPod when the phone is off, on but on the lock screen, on and logged into the phone but not on the app, or even when logged back into the phone with the app open. Furthermore, opening the app and pushing play will cause the progress bar to advance but there is still no music playing. Please address this in a future update. As another suggestion, there also needs to be a less clunky way to switch between online and offline browsing mode — maybe assume if no server is available default to offline mode?
  • Wow love it
