    Great app. Have used for years. Do your research on hardware and video encoding before driving into this. As you can see from most of the reviews, people clearly do not know what they are doing when it comes to setting up their servers. My only issue with the app is mobile sync features. They stay stuck at pending for android unless I delete the device from the authorized list, uninstall the app, and then add the device back. Besides this I've had no issues recently.

  2. Mike Glover-avatar

    Love Plex! I've set it up for myself and others. Bought the lifetime access. I wish they would bring back being able to pull the video from a cloud service like Google Drive or Dropbox. Otherwise, works great and rarely have any issues. Able to access my library wherever I have a good connection. Looking forward to more great things coming from Plex.

    Once I installed the app not knowing that they're going to charge me to activate it on my Android phone. To find out that I can't cast it to my smart TV from an LG Q70. I want my money back. Not to mention I downloaded the app on my Smart TV and it won't work there either without a subscription.

  4. Josh R-avatar

    Great app confusing choices in design. Why can't you manually change anything? Why does it all have to be automated meaning you have to learn how it thinks first in order for it to automate corrdctly? I don't know. Seems needlessly complicated however once you figure it out it's a really cool system overall. I'm worried at some point I will have more issues but for the time being I've figured out most of the quirks so this app is really cool right now.

    Very easy setup. Very easy to navigate and I wish I would have taken this leap earlier. I can seamlessly watch videos, shows, listen to podcasts and music on all my devices with no effort in worrying about formats for each platform. I have a roku TV, couple fire sticks, windows laptop, ubuntu laptop, Xbox and iPhone on my network. All content works on all devices. Great product!

    I played with Plex since it was recommended by friends after i got a TV with built in Roku. Works great for me. Easy to set up my library even though i had to rename hundreds of movies. I like it, works for me, no issues encountered. The metadata can use some work. Movies and show with names same as older shows will show incorrect metadata at times.

    Plex Server is great at organizing your media. The Android app does go back and forth with every update on overall ease of use, but the ability to automatically sync shows on my phone before I travel is quite convenient. All in all, I am quite pleased with the service the Plex family of software is able to provide.

    Will work for a while. Errors have always caught up no matter which android device I use. Disappointing since it costs on this platform but the free smart TV app works perfect on all TVs. Can't believe I paid for this on 3 android (family) accounts and all have stopped working at some point and in this case, less than 2 months since I installed it on this brand new device

  9. Dave Cardona-avatar

    I used to be a big fan of Plex and when it when the developers released a mobile app I was delighted! However, as others have mentioned, with every update there seems to be a new set of problems that affect the app in one way or another. The user experience suffers and in turn we are forced to write reviews such as this! With all the advancements in the automation of QA with tech like CI/CD, how is it possible to release software with critical bugs?

  10. Matthew Borgholthaus-avatar

    Matthew Borgholthaus


    Works great! When it works, it works amazing! Could be a bit easier to access the whole library for Photos and Videos that you have made yourself as it is hidden a bit in menus. Also could be nice to get notifications of when the server is down and an error code possibly to explain why it went down.

  11. cody hutson-avatar

    cody hutson


    I like to consider this app as a one time use. Meaning you get to use it without any issues one time, and then it won't load any of your content without having to log out/login or uninstall/reinstall. Pretty disappointed in the software compared to the service as a whole. I think this is a selling point on the paid service which is even more ridiculous.

  12. Jack Dixon-avatar

    This is everything I've always wanted in music streaming, and more. After ditching iTunes years ago, I finally have all my own music back, with the ADDED BENEFIT of mixing in music from TIDAL that I don't own with playlists of my own music. Automatic mobile photo uploading is just a plus. I discovered Plex when I started to disengage from Google and got my own NAS (Synology). Integration of Plex and TIDAL on my NAS is seamless. Couldn't be happier.

    Just keeps getting slicker all the time, use this app often. I use it to watch movies so I don't keep the wife awake,some wireless headphones and good to go! I turned my 67yr old mom onto it recently and she picked up navigating before I could get annoyed with all the texts & calls asking questions. Worth the $5 a month for your Plex pass! IMO been running a plex server in our home for the past 6yrs now, the app is available on whack of platforms and they are updated regularly.

    Great app, as for the other users that have problem regarding video is not streaming correctly that is in most cases bad video format, as for app and server sync it working excellent. I use plex server and app for few years, also use for RPi 2 and 3, PCs and everything work fine without any lags or problems, for those that have problems they didn't configure server properly or similar. Just continue with like this...

  15. Joshua Kelly-avatar

    Joshua Kelly


    as an ex Kodi user, I can say I like Plex, but it has it's downsides. I used it for a while now and the premise is great, but like most of this community built software, it is buggy as hell. I love being able to watch my own movies on demand but every version I have has issues of some kind. The Android version has been horrible for playback recently, even on my 5G home network. The network and server are more than fast enough to handle even 4k HDR Blu-ray. I'll update when stops being an issue.

  16. Steve Hopkins-avatar

    Steve Hopkins


    Echo what others have said, seems to be getting progressively worse with regular connection issues - spinning wheel until force closing and re-opening the app, likewise bits of my library appearing unavailable and inconsistently remembering my place in large audiobooks (offering to resume from 16 minutes rather than the nearly 5 hours I had listened to!!). Having said all that, when it works it works really well and the underlying system is full of potential just a shame the developers don't seem to listen to the feedback of their users.

  17. James Mills-avatar

    James Mills


    The server is incredible and I love Plex as a whole but there is a MAJOR issue breaking the app with this version on Android. No matter if it's an Android phone, tablet or TV, playback just STOPS while playing anything on this update (7.29.x). Please look into this, and I will share on your forums and other places.

  18. Samuel SA WALTERS-avatar

    Samuel SA WALTERS


    Bait & Switch! :( Why does it say under FREE FEATURES "• Enjoy streaming of any media on your Plex Media Server to other Plex apps"? In order to play my personal videos (stored on my PlexServer) on my phone via this app, I have to either activate a paid Plex subscription or pay $4.99+tax via the Google Play Store for a 1-time activation. Not cool.

  19. Bronze Warner-avatar

    Bronze Warner


    Great system. Super stoked to use it. Im annoyed that the premium feature is so expensive monthly and while i want the features, I'm not willing to pay monthly and not have it count towards the lifetime subscription cost so i intend to wait till i have some spare change and jump for the lifetime subscription to premium.

    Every update breaks this app. The users have to get used to the new layout and things they do every single time they upgrade... It's annoying. Apart from that the app does not work for me since the last update... It was such a great idea but the execution in the mobile app is horrible.

  21. John Kilgore-avatar

    John Kilgore


    3/5/20: STILL no list-view for subfolders, nor line-wrap for file names. Makes it hard to find the video I'm looking for. 6/19/20: Very convenient. However, when browsing library, there is STILL no list-view for subfolders, nor line-wrap for file names. Makes it hard to find the video I'm looking for.

    I mostly use the mobile app for listening to podcasts. They've fixed the bug where you can't play downloaded podcasts. However, I still can't skip forward or backward when playing a downloaded podcast, or select a spot to play from. It causes the podcast to start over from the beginning. Force closing the app and reopening usually allows you to play from where you were before it started over, but this is highly frowned upon doing while driving.

    Music sorting is gone every time app is restarted. For example, I select SORT / Album Artist, and after restarting app it's back to SORT / Title (default sorting). App works perfectly on iOS, but not on Android. Being a paid app these things should be taken care of. UPDATE 15/03/2020: After the latest update released on 11/03, the sorting issue is solved. Thanks!

    Plex has fulfilled a need I had in my life so succinctly that I will always have a place in my heart for it. I have considered buying a lifetime pass but the benefits wouldn't affect me and I am concerned about the future of the company/program, but for the last four years Plex has suited my needs so well with very few hiccups. It takes some tailoring to iron out the kinks, especially when a new update rolls out, but I am still in love with Plex.

  25. Amod Pandya-avatar

    Amod Pandya


    Frustrated with synced content. They really need to make accessing synced content seamless. Half the time the app keeps wanting to connect back to server on a weak data connection. There's no way for me to force it to go offline. Why not just make a tab call sync like Netflix which always shows the synced content in one place all the time (with or without data connection).

    New video player DOES NOT WORK! For android tv, the new player doesn't work, never has. Every time the app updates, I have to go back into settings and disable the new video player. Please fix it. The back button on shield doesn't work, and the video is not full screen, it jitters, and the sound cuts in and out. Did plex even test it on the shield? It's kinda their flagship android tv box, so annoying for paid service!

    Android app does not stream my music on mobile data. Only works on wifi, which I don't use when I'm not at home. It seems like it's playing, but no sound. Videos work fine, which I don't watch on my phone, I only want to stream my music on a s10 with android 10.

    Best app to store your media and share it with family, friends and whomever else. No need to carry arround hard drives, flash sticks or have many of it at home to store ur media. All stored in one place with multiple access to it. Watch media from your laptop, desktop, smart TV's,IPads, cel phones with many users watching whatever they like simultaneously. We'll done Plex we can't thank u enough. I have not yet seen any app like this, Thank u Plex Team.

    If I had dollar for every minute I'd spent troubleshooting Plex over the course of the years trying to get it to work, I'd have enough to build my own app to replace this stunningly unreliable application. As mentioned in other reviews, it's a lottery as to whether updates break or fix problems, and break something else. Please stop releasing junk on to people.

    Last night the app used a lot of my battery. Today I tried to update server. Something went wrong it said and I should install manually. It left my server broken and inaccessible. Went to website to download server. Message says: looks like we can't retrieve downloads at this time. So no server to download. Let's go the forums... Log in... Veerryy ssllooww... Message after long time: there was a problem signing in to Plex. I'm mad...

    I like to use the sub titles option but they seem to never sync with the actor's lips! Now as at March 2020 the app keeps crashing and I'm unable to watch may favourite TV shows. The only fix seems to be to uninstall then reinstall which will be ok for only one episode, then the process needs to be repeated.

    Having infinite loading issue reported by Eggroley on here. Streams don't actually load. Emailed support email listed here and they have an email autoresponder saying they're unable to provide help. DO NOT purchase anything in the Plex app. Even though I updated the app still having infinite loading issue. When you email support this is what they reply with As much as we would love to talk to every single one of our users, we are simply unable to provide one-on-one support via email.

    It's as bad as it can get. It turns 300+ USD device (Shield) to a completely unusable piece of hardware. It crashes on everything - adding a new video, playing a video - you name it. It slows down the device to a halt. If you can avoid it - please do. Never, ever pay them a cent.

    I used to use Plex a long time ago and I was pleased with the experience. I recently decided to build another Plex server and I'm happily surprised at how well Plex has aged. The software is very good, there is very little manual maintenance for meta data on my library, Plex handles it all. I'm definitely considering purchasing a lifetime Plex pass, but at $150, I'm on the edge.

  35. Erik-avatar



    Awful. Don't waste your time. I'm connected to WiFi and all I get is 30-60 seconds of play time and then I get booted back to the menu. Even when I download, or "sync" the episode i still get booted. I have the app on my TV and I've never had a problem. But this? Terrible. Don't waste your time.

    This app allows me to connect to my home media server and access my movies and tv shows in high quality from anywhere. There have been zero issues with the app, there is a learning curve to get everything setup but plenty of resources to figure it out.

    I'm not even able to create an account since someone used my main email address. I tried a few alternatives and Plex won't let me create an account with any of them! Useless. I'm glad I didn't pay to activate before getting an account (which the app let's you do!).

    I have plexpass lifetime. Plex is a really low IQ app. It offers options to "customize" it that are useless and the standard options on what you will see on home screen lack desirability completely. The stuff plex wants to push will constantly come back in your face no matter how many times you disable it. I am beginning to REALLY dislike companies that openly ruin the user experience to nakedly advance their own monetary advantage at costumer expense.

    Finicky at best on Android. I recently discovered this and created a server. The Android app is absolutely atrocious!! Its an embarrassment that the app continues to crash and has connectivity issues. Had to manually point this app and PS4 app to my server. Takes 5-8 connection attempts on android to STREAM MUSIC. I LOVE Plex and its possibilities, but its Android app is some hot garbage. Fix the crashes for 5 stars. I'm also a lifetime subscriber and dont regret it.

    At first it wasn't great but it has matured a lot over the years. I tired it recently and it is fantastic. The only problem is they don't really handle music videos very well. Also they could give discounted lifetime passes more frequently. Still waiting for a discount...

    Used this primarily for music. The interface is functional but uses out of date interface theming and also doesn't follow common UI patterns so it's often hard to figure out what screen you're in or how you got there. The paid offline feature is also buggy, sometimes refusing to download, or skipping songs in a playlist causing it to misreport what song is currently playing. I've switched to Tidal as it has an attention to polish, down to handling of metadata, and streams FLAC just as well.

    Absolutely shocking app. Premium member. Connected to WiFi only allows play back of music for seconds then freezes. The android app does not appear to buffer/cache the music and thus playback is shite. I have paid for Plex Pass and to be honest I would be happy get to get money back. Really is unworkable on home WiFi. And before anyone asks my home network and WiFi is fine.

    I love Plex. As soon as I add a movie or w/e it immediately adds it to the 'home page' list, nice graphics included. Organizes every season of a series . Although it isn't as tolerant of imperfections as VLC, it serves a whole different purpose.

  44. John Bonner-avatar

    Worse every update. Every update something new has broken. Sometimes playback works on one device but not another. The mobile app is a big lose. Home screen doesn't function and has not function for three or four months with no help from Plex on the forms.

    Great app for streaming pretty much all media, had a few minor hiccups initially with not being able to resume films after pausing and slight video to audio sync (now & then) but after upgrading the server pc to an i5 with 8gb ram they seem to have resolved it. Can now also stream to multiple devices without any lag or syncing issues. Streaming in house to multiple android devices and tvs. Great app.

    I like the previous versions better because it was easier to navigate. There is a new bug that makes it so that when I leave a WiFi network I have to restart my whole phone to access synced content. If this gets fixed I'll be happy to change this rating but untill then I'll have to wait.

    I'm on v7.29 version. It works well. But the problem is Plex Media Server remote agent didn't work (it works flawlessly before). I've try port forwarding, manually port setting, but I can't seem to use it outside my local network again.

    I am using this app on my Galaxy tab s5e. Issue 1: I filter the content in my library to show only unwatched. When I finish watching the last episode in a show and hit the back bottom to return back to the library the app crashes. Issue 2: When I try to cast to my TV from the app it shows that the episode starts and starts playing on device (no picture as expected) but it does not display the content on my TV. I am trying to cast the a Chromecast ultra. Offline watching could use some work.

    For movies & music it's the best home experience. I've used Kodi for offline music & videos but that requires constant transfers between hard drives & inferior UI. Plex simplifies by AV files as I only manage 1 database & stream to LG TV, Android box, tablets & phones. My family loves it too!

    Plex is great when it works. With every update, it gets worse, not better. I also just realized that for years Plex was converting the video playback to a lower quality bitrate by default for no reason. Horrible. Use VLC player instead

    Great app. After the learning curve. It doesn't seem to like being controlled by multiple computers- my workstation and notebook. If I update the one I didn't install the software on originally, it stuffs up. I have to do it in the original again and it comes back.

    Media buttons don't work. UI for listening to audio books is pretty rubbish (clearly thinks all audio must be a song). Doesn't work well with Android auto, won't continue playing what was already being played before launching auto.

    Plex is not fun on Android. Synced music regularly refuses to play; sometimes it plays but no audio whatsoever. Sometimes it just crashes. I'm dissapointed that I pay a monthly subscription for a music app that can't play music.

    I love plex but this android app is clunky, it is slow and not user focused. The search features is crazy, search for a movie name... It returns other results first, most people would wa t movie / tv show results first and actor data after

    How do you make the app so much worse with every update? How does sync still not work correctly after years? Stop adding nonsensical things like tidal support and B-list movies that no one will ever watch. Fix the core functionality.

Instead, the onus is on the customer to search through 1000s of pages on a forum to try and find the answers. Not to mention when you do post, no one from Plex answers. Very frustrating, shouldn't be allowed to sell something if it's clearly still in beta.

    One of the last few updates has made the app unusable. Audio cuts out after 10 seconds. Wow, almost a year later and these issues arent fixed. These developers dont care at all.

    For the last 6 months PLEX "updates" do not work on nvidea shield. Apparently this has been an issue for users for over a year and they still haven't resolved.

    This app is horribly buggy. I constantly have to force close the application and reset my Chromecast cause the damn app freezes and nothing can be done. Unacceptable for a paid service. Please fix it.

    It was such a good app! Well, before the update. Now I don't even know how to use this complex, and difficult new species! Please fix! It has so much potential to live up to!!!

    Would have been great in the 80s but didn't have this technology in the 80s. User interface is pretty pants too. Nice try but needs so much more and current content.

    Really nice interface, the only thing that doesn't work for me is starting rescanning the library from the app. Other than that very smooth for a lifetime Plex supporter.

    I use Plex a lot. However, this app is buggy. When switching from one album to another, it doesn't seem to work so I have to force close it and start again.

    Even though my home internet connection, which is used as the connection for my server, is slower than desired, having my files in FLAC available anywhere definitely puts this app above most. Truly enjoying it. 👍🙂

    Simply unusable =[ Touch your phone, switch apps, receive a message on your phone while something is playing and it all stops. Or it randomly stops mid way through a song.

    Its great as a media server but tries to push other unwanted services onto users. If I want tidal or plex movie or podcast I'll use separate apps. Focus on being a media server.

    Audio needs attention! I use Plex on my phone to listen to podcasts when I go to sleep but every now and then the podcast stops. Sometimes I'm able to load Plex back up and press play to resume (from where it last buffered to) but most of the time I have to restart the pod cast. Very frustrating as the podcasts are nearly an hour long and takes a while to skip back to where i was. Current ui is awful. Please bring back the old one!!

    Hard to navigate. Took forever to find media from plex media server on my pc. Playback was completely glitched and unwatchable. Kodi is a much smother experience in comparison.

    I paid for this app, and now it is asking me to pay a second "one-time" fee to reactivate it. Reaching out to support has not yielded any results. DO NOT BUY THIS APP!

    Sync not working properly. It downloads ok, but soon after it starts downloading it just says it's synced even though it's still downloading in the background.

    Well in my opinion this app is pretty awesome . They have new movies, great selection and most of the shows one could want to watch. The only shows they lack is reality TV shows.

    I love Plex and it's really useful but this app is atrocious. If it doesn't get stuck in a loading loop it's playing the video in a tiny portion of the screen. If it's not doing that then it's forgetting how to sync files leaving an annoying notification on my phone all day. If it's not doing that then it's forgetting how to order my TV libraries. All to access a service I'm paying for on my own hardware. The UI is slow and unintuitive too. I'm running out of space now but you get the point.

    It was much better before it started forcing news feeds and their streaming stuff on me. I just only want to see my personal library and nothing else.

    If there are multiple users set up on the account, this app SHOULD make you pick a user when first logging in (like it does on the PC) but it does not, it just automatically logs you in as the main user. This messes up play history for everybody, not to mention it allows my kids to access the content that they are normally blocked from.

    Update 3/12/20: Just changed to a new phone. Now it won't play downloaded podcasts, just keeps re-popping up "An error occurred while playing this item" message repeatedly. As soon as I delete the download it plays fine. This isn't ideal as I'm not on an unlimited data plan with my carrier. Is nothing sacred anymore?

    Plex is the best platform to stream and organize your home/personal media. There is some room for improvement on the UI and glitches to sort however this doesn't stop me from still enjoying Plex to the fullest. I highly recommend Plex to everyone. I also recommend getting the Plex-Pass. Lifetime pass is the most economical option over monthly plan.

    Stuttering playback on Fire Stick since last update rendering it unwatchable. 30 seconds smooth, 10 seconds of what looks like frame skipping, and so on...

    While Plex is still superior to most other media managers, the android client has been progressively getting worse. It seems the development team is busy adding "bells and whistles" such as unwanted and counter-intuitive home screen customizations while ignoring core functionality and outright dropping other desirable features. The current version of the client crashes more frequently than older versions (I still run 6.13 on most devices) and it no longer supports some of my media formats

    It works great with a media collection of 2k movies, 100 series, 10k+ photos... Although it does sometimes have problems beaming audio to chromecast.

    Plex is a great idea and works pretty well (well enough to support them by purchasing a Plex pass), with a couple caveats. The movie playing works great to all my devices (phones, computers, ps4). The music playing in the phone app gives me some trouble (search internet for an issue in which music stops playing after a while) The sync feature to the Plex phone app is awesome, but clunky (e.g. if i download e.g. a tv season, can't start playing first episode until whole season downloads)...

    Plex templates on most devices are so well constructed that use is a total breeze.. I have to rate Plex as "Best Cat in Show." How ever even how we should all strive to better ourselves I do believe Plex has more room before. What I would like to see with Plex is just a bit more similarity between how options and folder files are accessed across all platforms. It's so sad when sometimes I cannot make a continuous playlist or queue on while playing soft tv noise at night to help to fall asleep!

    latest update isnt working well at all. keeps spinning as if loading but rarely connects to server. must clear cache to get to work again. also if it does connect a couple times in a row it forces me to reset my home screen settings. rolling back to an older version in hopes that it will work as well as it used to. 5 star rated app previously

    My last review was written years ago and I commented on the horrible offline syncing feature. Its still horrible. I have synced files that just won't play. Half the time, the offline library does not even show up and requires an internet connection before it can show anything ..not sure if Plex understands what "offline" means.

    Plex is hot garbage and yet still somehow the best service available for media sharing. If you're not a computer science major then just stay away, you spend more time trying to figure out why your server randomly dropped remote access than you will do anything else. There's no tech support, just forums with hundreds of other frustrated users. If you're desperate for a media sharing platform then this is the one but know that it will eventually erode your sanity.

    Very good looking app. Yes, you can stream your content to mobile but after you pay these guys a little fee.. (one time fee) ... And i paid it too, so i was very much enjoying watching my media on phone. But then after a few weeks suddenly Plex remote features broke... I can now longer control Plex running on my TV. Which i was able to do a few weeks back. Fix the remote and I'll give 5 starts next time... March 2020 remote fixed

    Broken since the latest update. As others have observed just spins and never loads content from the server. Clear cache & data required to fix. Sync to device is a shambles for more than a few items, if you think it will maintain a local copy of even the most modest music collection think again. Can't believe I thought paying for this was a good idea. Maybe rolling back and doing some proper testing? Lots of h4 unsupported format errors which vanish on second attempt.
