Plex has been working on its official native Windows 10 app since May, recently rolling out a major update to the beta version of the app. More specifically, Plex Beta is now a UWP app and introduces a new user interface and Cortana improvements.

The latest app version, Plex Beta 3.0.31, is currently available only for PCs and tablets and the mobile version should be released soon.

Native Windows 10 app
Built from the ground up to take advantage of Microsoft’s new Universal Windows Platform.
New UI
A completely redesigned beautiful UI, which works and looks great across any device and screen size.
Cortana
Hubs and discovery
Continuum (on mobile)

Users have already confirmed that the Plex Beta is now more keyboard friendly and that the new user interface is indeed more intuitive.

The fact that Plex is now a UWP app means that all Windows 10 platforms will soon run the app without limiting user access to Plex. Secondly, it’s easier for its developer to make changes and improve the app as every change will automatically be available on all Windows platforms.

Plex is a popular media streaming app already available for Windows Phone and the Xbox One. This app serves as a great replacement for Microsoft’s Media Center. It helps users to organize their videos, music and photos into collections, allowing them to stream media content from one place.

The current Plex app won’t be replaced by the new UWP app, as it will be available as far as the Windows Store supports it.

You can download the Plex app from the Microsoft Store for free.
