No Search Feature yet for Xbox One (When?)

stanislavfstanislavf Posts: 3Members

Love Plex and like the various clients it works with. However, for movies the lack of search function on the Xbox One is a killer. The browse by alphabetically helps, but sometimes one remembers only PART of a title, not the first word.

Search in general would make both video and music killer. I would think the DB on the server could be optimized for easy searching.

Maybe I am missing something, but I did see that "search" was one of the known features that was missing and possibly being worked on for Xbox. This is more a vote than anything else. I have the chat keyboard attached to the Xbox controller so it is vastly easier to type than say with my Roku (where a search function DOES exist!).

Any word WHEN this might be added?

    No word yet, but an update is currently in review with Microsoft.

    Maybe @moussa.uk can shed a light if a search function is implemented :-)

    Hello All,

    is this function is planned or already activated ?
    I'm unable to find it (and I do have a working keyboard - Logitech k830) connected.

    As we see, no one cares about all those problems this app has.
    Really unbelieveable!!!

    Customer-Care is not important for the Devs as long as they are selling enough Plex Passes.
