You can now watch Plex in VR with Google Daydream

Media streaming giant Plex has launched Plex VR, a standalone Android application that lets you view VR content saved on your home server on any VR headset that’s compliant with Google’s Daydream platform.

Plex VR bundles a slew of neat features, including a co-watching room, where you can invite up to three friends to tune into a show with you in a movie-friendly environment (a drive-in cinema or an apartment) – provided at least one person has a Plex Pass subscription.

In addition to accessing whatever’s stored on your server, Plex VR also supports local media playback. That means you’ll be able to fire up the application to access any immersive (180- or 360-degree) content saved locally on your Android smartphone.

Here’s Plex VR in action:

The application, which was built in partnership with esteemed VR developer Alex Keybl, is available to download from the Play Store right now. It’s free to use, though some features – like co-watching – are exclusive to customers with a Plex Pass.
