Plex For Android

By on December 15, 2014

Plex is quite a non famous app available around us for a long time; unfortunately due to unknown reasons (probably poor marketing), Plex didn’t get traction and fame it deserved. But now thousands of people are moving toward this amazing app and service. Recently Plex updated their Android app to provide better user interface and overall structure to its users. In case you don’t know what Plex is, it is an app and service that helps you manage your media collection on multiple devices.

We already have Google Play Music for that, right? But there is a little difference between these two. Plex is not just about music, it also supports photos and videos as well as audio collection. You can manage your movies and all other media collection from a single app. It is very easy to setup Plex on your home media server. Though Plex does not stream your contents from its server but it allows you to make your own device a server. If you have a spare Windows Box or Mac Mini at your home then it is a good idea to make that your home server and then leave it on when you want to stream your media.

First of all, you have to download Plex software for your home server; you can download it from their official website. Plex server software is available for many desktop platforms including Windows, Mac, Linux, CentOS, Fedora and Ubuntu. After downloading and installing the software, things are quite straight and you can easily configure that according to your need.

Amazingly, Plex allows you to access your own contents as well as some global contents. There are many channels available on Plex from where you can stream media directly without a subscription or anything else. Plex app for Android does what it is suppose to do. It gives you access to your home server and all the media stored on that server. The app allows you to see recommendations from your friends and you can make your own playlists to listen to your favorite music and watch your favorite videos. From “My Library” tab you can easily access all of the media stored on your home server.

The most amazing thing about Plex is its multi platforms availability. As Plex server software is available for many different desktop platforms, its mobile app is available for many different mobile platforms including Android, iOS and Windows Phone. On the other hand, Plex is also available on Samsung and LG Smart TVs well as for Roku and Google TV. How Plex makes your home PC a media server is beyond extraordinary. Plex app is available for Android devices from Google Play Store for $5 that seems a fair deal considering the features and options it provides.
