One of the best features of Apple’s TV app is that you can access most of your other streaming apps in one place. While not all major platforms are supported in this way, some of the larger ones, including Amazon Prime Video and Disney+, are – and it looks like you’ll soon be able to add Plex to that. listing.
In a tweet spotted by 9to5Mac, Podcaster Will Sigmon discovered that the latest Plex TestFlight beta includes support for Apple TV app integration. Once the company releases the software, you’ll be able to see Plex content in the Apple TV app. It will also appear in your Up Next queue, as well as in your recommendations.
Now, before those of you with Plex servers get too excited, Sigmon said he was unable to get content from his personal server to appear consistently. 9 to 5 suggests this could be because Plex plans to only make content from its free streaming service available this way through the Apple TV app. It’s also worth pointing out that the integration may not work in all countries where you can get both Plex and the Apple TV app. Anyway, we reached out to Plex for more information and will update this article when we hear from the company.
With Plex’s TestFlight program at full capacity, you can’t try the integration if you haven’t already signed up for the beta. And at the moment, there is currently no deadline for a public release of Plex 7.14.
