The State of Plex on PS4
Absolutely disgraceful that the PS4 has been totally abandoned by Plex.
Xbox and other platforms got the new UI along with other updates while the PS4 hasn't gotten one since mid-2016, except for one minor update related to stability.
How could you expect people to buy a Plex pass when you can't even ensure they'll get what they're paying for? PS4 is the number one selling console since launch in 2013 and yet it receives 0 attention.
I thought about getting a lifetime Plex pass for my Xbox but given Plex's resilience to update their products, it's really only a matter of time until you abandon the Xbox One and focus on other stupid S**t that your core audience never asked for.
Instead of wasting time adding bloatware features like News and Podcasts, focus on bringing the latest version of your product to all platforms.
Check out the Plex page on Reddit where people constantly complain about the utter crap being added to the app instead of perfecting core features and fixing issues.
Don't give me this rubbish about the time it takes to port the latest version to other platforms. You can't argue that when you have your developers wasting time building other stuff that most people will never use.
News and Podcasts are not things most Plex users are dying for. Such things should be optional add-ons and not something forced down on people and given a higher priority than maintaining the overall application. If Plex continues its path of becoming an all in one bloatware app, I'm gone along with most of your core users.
Again, perfect what you have first and then focus on whatever else you want to add. Don't assume people are happy because you're adding random features, features which are still not even available on most platforms like the PS4.
Quality over quantity.
