Any chance of support for Android Auto?

Not sure how hard it is to add this, and it's probably a ton of work, but I just wanted to see if this has been something that has already been looked into. Spotify was just added, but Plex has the upperhand being that I can load my FLAC library and stream it to my car if I wanted to, as the Pioneer Nex head units now natively support FLAC.

    they have to build in support to not allow video playback whilst the vehicle is in motion.
    that's probably the reason why you don't see any video playback apps available android auto.

    Would guarantee a renewal of Plex Pass for me!

    It might be easier to create a music only app.

    Please consider this. Using non AA apps in my car is inconvenient to the point that I just don't bother. I would pay extra for this.

    This is the sort of feature that would push more users into upgrading to Plex Pass. I am already a Plex Pass user and would love this feature in my car +1 from me

    is it?
    android auto is pretty niche market, and if you add plex users to that market then it becomes even more niche.
    whilst it might be something nice to add to the list of features, i can't see it being anywhere near top of any list of things to add in the near future.

    Really? With the new 'Podcast' library support coming/here, this would make Plex a media 'Big Boy' right up there with Pandora (as far as Media playback on the go...).

    Plex becoming a 'niche market' player implies that they would be 'limited' in their media playback scope as opposed to becoming more broad (encompassing...). I can agree that currently, Android Auto/Apple Carplay are both niche subsets in the auto industry. I just bought a 2017 Honda Ridgeline that includes Android Auto, but without proper app support, it will stay a niche segment. There isn't the broad app library that can utilize the capabilities yet.

    List of ALL the Android Auto Apps on the Play Store...

    Definitely would be huge add to the app. I'm in the process of making Plex my only media app on all devices (just waiting for my Cloud invite). But use in the car would be limited without Android Auto support.

    With the latest update to Android Auto I would love to see support now that Android Auto runs on Android 5.0+ devices. +1

    I would love to have Android Auto to play music in my car without touching the mobile.
