How do you play an album?

I have the plex windows app. I have no idea which version, it doesn't say.
When playing a music album, it only plays one song, then you have to manually click next-track to go to the next track. Is there any way to automatically play an entire album?

    You can click on the 'Play' button when entering the Album you want to play. Or create a Playlist to play a collection.

    Only issue is, playback is currently broken, the App will play the first item (music, video etc.), then crashes to Desktop.

    So, the option is there, just doesn't work.

    Mine doesn't crash, but it only plays one track then stops.

    yeah, you lucky...it crashes with me with whatever i play, even movies, tv etc. Plays the first item, then crashes to desktop. Been waiting for a fix for quite a while now. Wish there was an alternative to Plex that worked, but really regretting spending money on my Plex Pass.

    Are the authors aware of this bug? Playing an album seems to be the most obvious basic function imaginable, yet you can't do that? This is absurd.

    Absurd is the word, app is going nowhere, even getting worse over time since anniversary update.
    Now completly broken for me can't even play music at all since i switched to plex cloud.

    Maybe they will stop fixing a sinking ship and start from scratch, actually charging money for this is a scam...
