Apple Watch Client App Request

PresenceOfMindPresenceOfMind Posts: 25Members, Plex Pass Plex Pass

Now with Apple Watch 3 and LTE(celular connection). We seen Apple pushing the watch to become a stand alone device more and more. It's time for the plex team to start looking forward and develop a plex client app for apple watch.

    I think you’d end up with a dead watch in less than an hour. I don’t think it’s useful at this point.

    Plex Media Server Plex-Pass.

    I'm also interested in this... even if its just for music. I don't want to pay for Apple Music, I want to use my own server.

    I'm also interested.. with support for offline music (workouts)

    Yes... PLEASE bring Apple Watch support! I'm somewhat shocked to see it take so damn long considering Plex started on iOS and the Apple Watch is the most popular wearable.

    I've been loading all my music into Plex and would love the ability to stream music from my server directly to my watch!!

    Yes, I want this for music, too.

    Music may not come, apple currently isnt allowing music on watch apps without approval, even spotify isnt able to get on watch os yet.

    Why would it be dead? Wouldn't using it as a remote simply hook the player to the server directly?

    It seems like it would be an obvious beneficial addition to me.

    Music streaming has actually become pretty efficient in terms of battery consumption. The watch could download a full album pretty quickly with LTE download speeds, then stop using the LTE service and play back off the local cache, thereby preserving battery.

    And here here for an Apple Watch client!

    This is would be good, to being able to listen to music from my plex server without the need of having my phone. Thorugh my apple watch series 3 and airpods, would be amazing feat, if they can pull it off. It would round my plex expeerince to being dam close to perfection. And also remote controling my plex media player through my watch. (being perferection would be having music videos back, but thats for a different thred and reasoning why that got removed)

    We're still evaluating what functionality could potentially be provided by a watch app. Unfortunately, streaming music playback directly on the watch won't be possible with the current APIs that Apple expose for use by third party developers :disappointed:

    Hi jam,

    It's great to hear Plex is already looking at this. That's the first step.
    I know there are more watch apps been implemented or upgraded to work as stand alone but at this stage there might still be some limitations.
    Another approach would be to connect the iwatch to iphone and have the audio streamed. I suggest to have a look at that.
    This would be a first version until Apple releases the APIs you required to develop the functionality directly on the iwatch.
    Maybe this helps.
    Cheers

    Remote on Apple Watch would be great to have. Fingers crossed!

    At home, I'm running a 48TB QNAP 871T 16Gb RAM serving 2 x LG 48" TVs, 4 x Samsung 42" TVs, all via Apple TV4 & Plex. Each can transcode HD MKV without any bumps all at the same time.
    4 iPads, 3 iPhones, 2 x Mac Mini & 1 iMac. So wish I had bought Apple shares years back
