Plex on the web gets smarter with media searches

The new interface may give you a reason to skip Plex's native apps.

Plex's web interface just got much, much better at helping you find that favorite movie. The company has introduced a revamped dashboard for its media front end that's at once smarter and more organized. The search feature now finds everything across multiple categories as you type, and it's both considerably faster and more forgiving -- even if you don't know how to spell "Stellan Skarsgård," you'll probably spot both him and the movies he stars in. Navigation is easier, too, as you'll get the latest discovery features front and center, with better mouse and touch control as well as zoomable posters. Check it out now if you regularly venture beyond Plex's native apps when browsing your media collection.
