Xbox One and Alexa WorkAround

Hi All,

So a lot of xbox one users myself including will be a little gutted that alexa does not work for this console. Its a shame we always seem to be waiting for the client update for this brilliant media centre console.

People may have done this but no one mentioning so thought i would just tell this community.

Anyway, My work around.

Just load Internet explorer and login to plex and hit Launch, (I Book Marked this so its on main GUI),

Ask Alexa to ask plex to select a player - Alexa then told me there is only one player online which as been selected by default (WebApp Internet Explorer)

I then sat back, and everything seems to work perfect to me so far

If anyone else as any work arounds let me no :)
