Plex users can now play their movies, TV shows and music just by asking Alexa

This is [Plex] ’s first step into home automation, and, as of launch, there are still a few limitations. For starters, it can’t actually play your music directly on an Amazon Echo speaker, Amazon Tap, or Echo Dot yet – but the company says it’s hoping to make that possible in the future. It also doesn’t support playback of media from some Plex devices, including LG Smart TVs, Xbox 360 and Xbox One players, but that’s expected to change in time. Plex Cloud is not supported either, nor is voice control of the “Photos,” “Other Video,” and “Watch Later” sections in the Plex media player software. – Sarah Perez, TechCrunch
