    Just got the update. Has a changelog been posted anywhere?

    Not that I can see. The only two thing I notice right off the bat is some navigation arrows in the top right corner to move through episodes and now (annoyingly) plays theme music.

    No channel support yet
    No way to continuous play episodes(that I can see)

    @cuzz1369 - you can turn the TV theme tunes off if they annoy you - it's in the Settings screen.

    Channel support isn't there yet. You can do continuous video playback from the season or show, but not from the episode. This is intentional until we have a post play screen (lots of people dislike a sudden play of next episode).

    I'll get the changelog posted now. Thanks!

    Thanks! Having the arrows is an excellent addition, I hated the extra steps involved in going to the next episode.

    I discovered that you can disable the theme music in the app's settings.

    Also, the episode view has changed from tiles to list view. Is there any way to change it back?

    No, you can't change the view type in the season page. We had a lot of feedback (from other big screen apps as well) that a vertical list with more information was more useful for episode lists. It also fits in nicely for some future plans where we want to do more than just 'play' an item.

    My wife is going to be mad when she sees the change haha.

    I also noticed that the alphabet is now on the bottom instead of being a button at the top. On a related note, that annoying bug of going back to the first item on the page after selecting a letter or finishing an episode has been fixed.

    Between that and the episode arrows, this update pretty much fixed all the annoyances I had with the app. Thanks!!

    Some ideas for 1.3 based on 1.2 changes

    1) When I am in the movie or TV-show browsing-section the A....Z below the covers is great. But when I am currently browsing a title which starts with C, I only see an emptly grey box where the C is. Would be great if it was an grey box with a white C inside, so I don´t have to guess that between B and D must be C

    EDIT @ 1) Looking closely I can see the letter in black, it was just too subtle/small for my seemingly bad eyesight :-) ... anyway, maybe you can improve the visibility ;-)

    2) The new vertical Episode list within a Season is great but when I am e.g. at episode 15 and want to use the "go home" button I have to scroll all the way up. Would be great if we could just click right and would land on the go home button

    Great update => Thanks ! :)

    Not that I can see. Looks like you'll have to tough it out at work :P

  • Dom CDom C Plex Employee Posts: 1,232Members, Plex Employee, Plex Pass, Plex Ninja Plex Employee

    If you enable it on the server, you can now delete episodes. Time to take that vacation! ;)

  • wsavonawsavona Posts: 83Members, Plex Pass Plex Pass

    I am seeing a delete option when I hit the button with the three dots

    When you have a minute can you please explain the continuous playback option to me. Don't worry about it if you are gonna explain it in the changelog.

    Yup, just confirmed you CAN delete things now. From episode or movie page just hit the button with the three dots and it will show as an option (assuming you have that option enabled on your server).

  • wsavonawsavona Posts: 83Members, Plex Pass Plex Pass

    Pretty much only thing I want now is Filters/Sorting.

    Thanks for giving the Xbox One more love lately Plex! Moving to that as my full-time Plex device now.

    Not seeing "play on Xbox" option in the Plex for android app either. Was hoping that would make it to the Xbox update as it did on PS4.

    Changelog is here - https://forums.plex.tv/discussion/comment/1009741/#Comment_1009741 - but please ask away if you need any clarifications.

    Filter/sorts and remote control are still on the 'parity hit list'. I don't know when they'll arrive, but we know they're missing.

    Continuous play is a little limited right now, but you can play a whole season/show/library by using the play or shuffle button on that page. We still need to make this respect unwatched status, and just play those items - sorry!

    Great update, but let's hope the Filter/Sort will arrive soon...since it's already there on the 360 version....

    Ideally and I think maybe the easiest way to acheibe this would be a separate button from on deck. Similar as "X" button does direct play from the last update (which was awesome BTW) I can't imagine it would be too hard to make the "Y" button continuously play unwatched episodes.

    This really is the one and only thing I personally feel this app needs. I understand the whole thing about some people not wanting it but its not like that would be the default behavior.
