Latest Update For Plex App On Android Allows You To Play Files Stored On Your Phone

Story from: Digital Street

Plex, popular media server, has just released a major update to its application for Android. You can now open and play pretty much any video file stored on your Android device or SD card, without you having to play it through a third-party player anymore.

The latest update for Android will now allow you play local video files including .MP4s, .MKVs, .AVIs, .WMVs, and .WMDs, among other formats, within the app. The Plex app offers a DVR-like function, allowing you to also scheduled live TV recordings to take on apps like VLC.

Sometimes users may find themselves downloading files from torrent sites that can be difficult to play on mobile so the ability to open practically any video format will come in handy. 

The Plex app will also automatically fetch metadata for your media file. If the file is recognised, the title, artwork will show. 

The update (v6.0) is rolling out to Android phones and tablets and can be downloaded via Google Play, and will come soon to the Amazon App Store.
