Cortana or voice control with plex

I am wanting to control plex with voice control and on the plex support page as seen here- https://support.plex.tv/hc/en-us/articles/231365928-Controlling-the-Windows-App - it says how cortana can help play movies with voice activation from your plex server using the windows app. I have tried this using the correct syntax but no luck. Has anyone got this working or maybe other solutions using alexa or some kind of voice control or automation?

    Moved to the windows store app section since this is specific to this player.

    Has there been any update on this? I have tried everything, but Cortana says "Sorry, I can't play music on Plex." I am using the new 2.1 Plex Media Player.

    Are there any news on when plex will play well with Cortana? I am on Windows 10, v1709 update.
