Plex on the brand new Android TV!

06.25.14 72 Comments

No doubt you’ve been glued to the interwebs, watching the Google I/O keynote. Is the next version of Android named Lollipop, Lickable Lemur, or Limoncello? I’m honestly not sure, because I’m writing this the night before. But what I do know is that an awesome new platform has launched: Android TV.

Now if there’s a new way to get content on your TV, we try our hardest to be there from the start, and we’re super happy to let you know that Plex will be available when the Android TV launches. Mind you, this is no simple port of the big-screen Android app for the Google TV, this is much, much more. Starting with the finger-licking delicious new UI of the Android TV, we’ve completely redesigned the Plex home screen, and added exciting new ways to explore your media. Also, the app integrates perfectly with some of the amazing new Android TV features, including voice search. Lastly, media you’re most likely to want to watch next is displayed on the Android TV home screen.

Obviously, Android TV isn’t available for users yet, but we wanted to give you a rare peek at what’s coming in the near future.

Feast your eyes on these screenshots, dear reader! Is this the sexiest version of Plex yet?
