You don’t need an IPTV: Plex is updated with great new features in the app
Now that the persecution against pirated IPTV is getting worse, many users are looking for free and legal alternatives to enjoy their favorite content. Streaming services like Netflix are the main alternative, although there is an app that has managed to attract many users by giving them control over their multimedia library. We are talking, of course, about Plex, the free alternative to Netflix .
A streaming app that was originally born to access our personal files and content over the Internet and whose popularity has grown a lot in recent years. Plex made it extremely easy to create your own server, from which Android apps, Android TV, and many other systems can access and play content.
Over the years, Plex has evolved from a simple server to a gigantic platform with commercial agreements with major distributors like Warner Bros. For example, many users use Plex to find new movies to watch, thanks to the included trailers. , or rate the ones we have seen and recommend them to our friends.
Now, Plex takes another step in that direction with the latest updates that the app has received, which include important changes in operation. To start, the big news is “Discover Together”, a new section that basically turns Plex into a social network based on the friends you have already added to the app.
Unlike other social networks, which rely on algorithms to recommend content, Plex will be based on the movies that users we already follow on the platform are watching; Although it is true that the task of finding people to follow and knowing what they are watching or what they have pending on their list has been made easier. Each user has a profile, with their avatar and their information, but we can choose which parts we want to make public, such as activity. It also allows you to post comments and start watching the same movie with your friends .
That Plex has decided to add a social network to its app does not mean that the main function has been abandoned, far from it. In fact, in the latest update Plex has finally answered users’ prayers, implementing some of the most requested changes. For example, we can finally remove the AutoPay limitation ; Until now, Plex allowed you to play one episode after another, but with a limit of two hours, which is not much in these times of binge-watching in which we binge-watch series. Now, in the settings it is possible to vary the time limit, or remove it completely.
