Plex users on Windows have been stuck with an old Windows 8 app for awhile now, but that changes today. The media streaming server's desktop app has been completely rebuilt for Windows 10 as a Universal Windows app -- giving users the same Plex experience across tablet, desktop and mobile platforms. Well, almost the same experience: Plex says it's still working on the mobile release of the UWP app, but promises it will be along soon.

Naturally, this update bakes in a few Windows 10 specific features. Specifically, Plex for Windows now boasts Cortana support -- and when the mobile version of the app does launch, it'll use Windows Continuum: the feature that allows mobile apps to morph into their full-sized desktop apps when a Windows Phone is connected to a monitor and keyboard. The app also features a new UI, and support for Plex Hubs and discovery. Ready for an upgrade? Head to the Windows Store (the listing might not be updated yet, but if you install you will get the new version) or check out the source link below.
