Plex Home has arrived to deliver new features allowing users to have better control over sharing and their media in a multi-member family household. Users can choose who they want to share their media content with and create separate user profiles for different members of their family in Plex Home. This is enabled as Plex has moved the server management to the web app.
Additionally, with more control over sharing, you can share albums or selected songs with specified members.
There's also fast switching between different user accounts and you can set up PINs as well to protect the accounts.
Lastly, Plex is opening up its Plex Pass so everyone in your Plex Home will have access to it, not just the main Plex Pass account holder.
To experience Plex Home, be sure to download the latest version of the Media Server for Windows. Then, use one of the apps with Plex Home support to stream to your connected TV. Plex will be updating the rest of its apps soon.
