What's new

We’re very excited to bring you a great new update, including two of your most requested features, and some important bug fixes.

NOTE: This update includes changes in behavior for AirPlay and Chromecast users; read on to find out more.


WHAT’S NEW:

- Playlists! Now you can create your own music or video playlists to fit any occasion, including smart playlists based on genre, collection and more.

- Movie trailers! After adding trailers to your movie library, you can now view them from the movie info screen, or by long-pressing on movies. You can also turn on Cinema Trailers if you’d like to automatically play trailers before your movies start.

Both of these new features require Plex Media Server 0.9.9.13 or newer.


CHANGES:

- AirPlay devices have been removed from the in-app player list due to several reported issues. AirPlay devices can still be used by selecting them in the iOS AirPlay menu, or using the dedicated AirPlay button when playing content.

- Chromecast is no longer supported on devices running iOS 5. Previously, Plex used a pre-release version of the Chromecast software from Google that we were fortunate enough to have access to. Apps are now required to use the final version of the software, which only supports devices running iOS 6 or newer.


FIXES:

- Some particularly bad bugs that have been around for a while, but were difficult to track down. You should notice an increase in stability during general use.

- A couple of bugs preventing playback of synced content on Chromecast.

- A few other minor issues, including playback of content synced to other devices, remote control of the iOS app from the web app and localization of channels.
