Feature Request - Ability to Seach Across Multiple Libraries on Plex from Sonos App

Rain-ManRain-Man Posts: 23Members, Plex Pass Plex Pass

Hello, I do very much like the Plex/Sonos integration and have been able to set it up without issue. However, I have multiple libraries and noticed that when I search for music from the Sonos app it will only search the currently selected library. I can understand this from the perspective of browsing, but not searching. Can the ability for the search to access all the libraries, regardless of what library is selected, be added to a future release?

    Yeah, all Sonos services have this problem. Or maybes it just a Sonos problem.

    Anyway, I have three audio libraries:
    * Audiobooks
    * Podcasts
    * Music

    Would love to be able to merge them without having to create a 4th Plex library that points to them all.

    Interestingly enough, it looks like Sonos should already be able to do this. But it doesn't work from my iPad, Android, or Desktop Controller...

    Interesting enough, this seems to be working now. Sonos 7.1
