So we already told you about PLEX, basically mission control for all your media, and now the company has announced the addition of — ta da! — podcasts. Designed to give users the easiest-to-use, most customizable podcast experience, on any device, with no subscription or media server required, they also added a whole new look that includes new customization options for mobile apps. (We especially like the cross-device feature which means we can listen to a podcast on a jog and then pick up where we left off on the work computer.)
Plex has doubled down on their commitment of a customizable, personalized media experience. Now, YOU get to choose what types of content you want to see, what appears on your home screen and browse by what you want to play (rather than where it comes from). What’s not to like?

- Play local media on your Android device (including 3D and 360/180 video)
- Offers a selection of “scenes,” such as a drive-in movie theater, adding that extra layer of ambiance to your viewing experience
- VR streaming is free for all Plex users and a Plex Pass is required for the co-watching feature, as well as some of the “scenes,” though Plex is offering co-watching to all for a week at no cost when you start using Plex VR.
