Make your media beautiful

Plex keeps track of your media
Recently added content is presented front and center so you can instantly see what’s new. Plex also knows which movies and shows you’re watching, so you can easily pick up where you left off or play the next episode.

No problem, Plex also works on Chromecast, Amazon Fire TV, Roku, Google TV, Xbox, PlayStation®, VIZIO, and many late-model smart TVs. Plex is even available on most network-attached storage devices.
Playlists, for endless entertainment
Create your own customized music or video playlists to fit any occasion, including smart playlists based on genre, collection, and more.
