The Plex app is available on smart TVs from Sony, Samsung, LG, and more.

Plex has updated its smart TV app with a clutch of new features, the company announced earlier today. In a typically chirpy blog post, the company pointed out the TV app is available to millions of users around the world who own smart TVs from Sony, Samsung, Vizio, LG and Toshiba TVs, as well as Opera TV-based devices. (A comprehensive list of supported TVs can be found here.)

As a result of this update, you can finally access your photos and music collection via the smart TV app, which now boasts powerful discovery features, support for photo slideshows, and a music mini-player. The app's users can also access and play their music playlists, the company said, promising similar support for video playlists in a future update.

Finally, around five months after it was first introduced, Plex Home support has come to the TV app. This means you can use so-called "managed" user accounts created by the Plex Media Server admin--say for your children--and switch between both managed and regular user accounts quickly without having to manually sign out and sign in again.

Please note, however, that the aforementioned features are only available to Plex Pass subscribers. A Plex Pass subscription costs $5 a month and comes with a slew of benefits, including cloud sync, mobile sync, Plex Home, free client apps and much more.
