Home » News » Native Windows 10 Plex app is now in beta

Plex is currently working on a native Windows 10 app and needs volunteers to test the beta version of the app.  The company published a new app which can be installed side-by-side with the current app so that users can better spot the differences between the two.

Plex is a popular media streaming app already available for Windows Phone and the Xbox One. The version the company is working on is a native Windows 10 app for tablets and desktop computers and the developer informs us that more information about the Mobile app will be offered soon, which means that Plex will also be a UWP app in the future.

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 current Plex app won’t be replaced by the new app version and will be available as far as the Windows Store supports it. This means that Surface 2 owners running WinRT will still be able to use the app. However, only the new Windows 10 app will receive major fixes or new features according to developers.

Until the native Windows 10 Plex app is released, you can use one of these media streaming apps instead.

If you want to register for the beta version of Plex, you can do so here.
