Plex is Rolling Out a New App For Roku & Apple TV Users





Today Plex a popular media center app rolled out an updated user interface for Roku and Apple TV users. This newly updated app offers improved controls over what you will find on your Plex home screen. You can now easily turn on or off sections to customize it just the way you want it.

“The new UI represents months of hard work, extensive user testing, and ongoing conversation with our community. It’ll continue to be a focus of our efforts as we work to bring the new conventions to our other big-screen and mobile apps, but we’re super happy with the reception to date.” Plex said in a statement on their website.

Here is how Plex describes these new features:

  • Restoring some basic usability qualities that suffered a bit under “type-first”. Fewer clicks to get where you want to go. More discoverable actions and sources. More intuitive gestures and navigation. Fewer distractions with things you shouldn’t have to care about.
  • Ownership and customization. You have complete control over your navigation—you tell Plex what you care about, we build an experience for you, and if you don’t like it, you can rearrange sources, hide sources, and more.
  • Improved functionality in a multi-source world. Features like Search need to work perfectly to deliver exactly the results you want.
  • At the core of the experience is the sidebar. In addition to being a better use of screen space than the top menu, it lets you see all the stuff you care about, and none of the stuff you don’t.
