Text size too small

I find the text for album, song, and movies titles in all views to small. It is not that I cannot read them, but for visibility from a distance I find it hard to focus on what is being played and what is "Up next". I find this to be the case on all the platforms that I own, Windows Phone, Android and iOS. On the Windows Phone I find a lot of wasted space in the music play view such as the album art being bigger than it really needs to be (album art is for general pleasure not reading), the control function area could be a bit smaller, but I understand that easy controls maybe preferred.

It would be nice if there was an option to allow us to increase/decrease font size for each aspect of the view.

    While I'm all for user options and font size would be a nice one- I don't think that the UWP isn't intended to be a 10-foot-experience. It's a tablet / desktop / mobile client. For a suitable 10-foot-experience I'd go for PMP or OpenPHT.

    Running a PC as an HTPC you'll probably run into this a lot across multiple programs. The text sizes we use are actually in line with the actual OS.
    So you will likely want to increase the scaling of the whole OS by right clicking on desktop > Display Settings. Then drag the slider to a higher %.

    In the new Windows Universal version running on the Windows Phone this no longer an issue, for me at least.

    @roguecode The Plex Media Player (PMP) is not picking up text sizes except in "TV" layout.
    See attached.

    I have the same issue as SamLabrador. It kind of sucks squinting at the screen on my 14" Aorus, even with scaling at 300% like SamLabrador it simply doesn't affect the Plex Media Player.

    Can Plex please sort this out?

    PMS: i7-5930k CPU, loads of storage.

    CLIENTS: loads. multiple platforms.

    Wires are still better than no wires :D
