For those who like to collect and make use of an extensive media collection, there is a very good chance that Plex plays a role somewhere along the line. The Plex app is one which has proven to be extremely popular among Android device owners and not in least part due to the app being able to sync up with the desktop version quite nicely. As well as a ton of additional added features for those who make use of a Plex Pass subscription.
The same can be said for owners of the NVIDIA SHIELD. As although there was an Android TV compatible version of Plex already available, the last major update to the NVIDIA SHIELD brought with it an unrivaled level of Plex integration. Which essentially meant that Plex can operate solely from the SHIELD with the SHIELD acting as a fully fledged Plex Server, no addtional hardware needed. Now, Plex is improving the service again as the company has today announced an integration with Sonos.
As a result of today’s announcement, Plex users who also own any Sonos products will now be able to access their entire Plex music catalog through the Sonos app. There are a number of benefits to this sort of integration and none more so than the ability to remotely access Plex audio content on any Sonos speaker. In addition, the integration will be able to take advantage of various additional benefits like ‘sonic fingerprinting’ which looks to ensure that unorganized collections are far more organized when you need them to be. Although some of these features are reserved for Plex Pass members. Either way and whether you use the free version of Plex or are a Plex Pass member, the combination of Plex and Sonos will mean that Plex users are able to make use of another highly-integrated and intuitive way to engage with their media collection. Needless to say, if you happen to own the NVIDIA SHIELD and Sonos speakers then this will prove to be quite the new feature with your collection stored and provided by the SHIELD and the Sonos app able to pick up and stream to your speakers.
