Play option gone on Amazon Fire TV

LuscosLuscos Posts: 9Members, Plex Pass Plex Pass

Didn't see this asked anywhere so wanted to see if anyone knew. I have a Fire TV, an up to date Plex app, and an up to date plex server.
The play option is gone from the app on the Fire TV I can cast to it from another device but can not directly play it from the Fire TV. Any ideas or was this removed?

    Same issue, recently got my gen 1 AFTV out of storage after moving. Formatted AFTV and updated latest version of the firmware, reinstalled Plex app. Can't play any videos using the Plex app on AFTV but can chromecast stream to it. What gives?

    So as an FYI I found a way around the AFTV not having a play option. I side loaded Kodi onto the AFTV and then installed the Plex Video Add-on and Kodi gives me a play option. So a small work around until, I hope, they add the play button back to the AFTV app.

    I forgot to state it is a First Gen Fire TV. I got a New Fire Stick and it has a play option.

    Is there no play button on the pre-play screen or there is a button but it doesn't work? If there is no button, can you post an image of the pre-play screen?

    I asked for one of those images a while back (in some other thread apparently) - as I too am mystified by this entire thread.
    No 'Play Button'?
    That sounds like an incomplete installation or something and also sounds quite serious.
