Plex is by far one of the best streaming options out there today and now the company is working on a native Windows 10 app for PC and tablet users. Plex isn’t for everyone as you’ll need a library of content (or a friend with one) to take advantage of its services, but if you do have a library of content, you can stream that content from your home server to any device, anywhere. Plex has brought native apps to iOS and Android and now are working on a native Windows 10 app as well, and from the sound of it there will be a Windows 10 Mobile version as well.
After months of hard work, we’re excited to announce that we’re opening the beta for the native client built specifically for Windows 10!
In order to help us identify and work out any kinks, we’ve decided to publish a new app which can be installed side-by-side with the current app. This way the community will be able to easily try it out and let us know their feedback, without any concerns about breaking their current app.
At the moment, we’re only looking for feedback on the tablet/desktop app. We’ll be posting more info on the Mobile client soon.
The company is looking for beta testers right now to test the new native Windows 10 app alongside the old app for desktop and provide feedback. It’s probably a good idea that the company is comparing their current app against their new app to give beta users a chance to see improvements and suggest different features.
From what Windows Report is saying, the old app will still be usable by older devices that don’t support Windows 1o but it will no longer have updates or support once the new app hits. If you’re interested in being a beta tester just hit Plex up to apply and put your two cents in.Source: Windows Report
