  • Plex APK is companion app for Plex PC version in Windows, Mac, and Linux operating systems. Plex manages video, music files, photos as well as podcasts. This app is able to stream online to various online streaming sites like YouTube, Vimeo, iTunes, BBC iPlayer, and local files in computer and phone. It is also available for smart TV for online watching. The application lets user to synchronize contents from Plex in PC and smart TV and can act as remote control to control the PC and TV’s Plex through internet connection, preferable to use Wifi connection. The application in Android will automatically get connected to the ones in PC or smart TV, which is very convenient. It is proven to be fast in accessing local media in connected device and only slight lag when viewing online content.

    Plex also shows great features in displaying the content with sleek interface and rich metadata and lyrics provider in music player and decent sound quality. Another good feature is Offline mode where users can save online content into offline one as long as it does not violate copyright or store them to cloud provider including Google Drive. Watch Later feature lets user to bookmark certain content to be watched later.

    All of Plex awesomeness apparently has to be restricted in Free version. Those who do not desire for paid application may find this a little disappointing. It restricts playing media like music and video for one minute only. In older version, application frequently crash, and it is not very convenient for phone with low memory. In order to get all the features, users have to get Pass. However, once users purchase or get Pass, thr features are really worth for paid application.
