how do i use recommendations

    I'd like to also throw the weight of my Plex Pass behind this feature request. This really shouldn't be too hard to do.

    The recommend feature only works from Watch Later, I don't use Watch Later.
    I would like to be able recommend whatever I have in my library to friends.

    I simply cannot believe how broken the recommendation and watch later system is.

    I'm using PMP 2.0 and thought, hang on watch later and recommended is at the bottom of the screen, I'll add some top rated stuff for the family to see. Yeah, useless feature. I can't add movies from my own library to either recommended or watch later. Watch later only works with the plex it bookmark which seems to be youtube or vimeo videos.

    Please, dear Plex Gods, give us this feature.

    I found the official feature request for this one, please go to this page and click like on the original post so we can get it fixed/implemented!

    I'll be honest, I've used plex for many years and never understood it's purpose. I thought it would relate to some type of videos that you watched, even nowdays; some type of machine learning that would maybe assist. I would always see it blank and never bothered with it. It's not just you.

    I share my music library with a few friends, including one named Bobbie. WHY IN THE WORLD can't I just tap-n-hold on a song or album (or artist, for that matter) and just say "Recommend" to "Bobbie"? C'mon, developers!! Music is truly alive when it is a shared experience. PLEASE STOP MUCKING THIS UP.

    Please add this feature to the web client and android! I just want to recommend shows to my friends.

    Seriously, this has not been fixed yet? why is it even there.. I am also a Plex pass member.. I love Plex, but these limitations are annoying..
    Can you at least give a status on this absent feature?

  • jjrjr1jjrjr1 Posts: 2,103Members, Plex Pass Plex Pass

    I guess we can safely say there is NO status on this.
    Did you notice the OP is 4 years old!!!

    So, I was just looking to see if there was such a thing in Plex to recommend things to your friends and was happy to find this article:


    I was a little less happy when I couldn't find the option and more unhappy when I found this thread. This is still only available on the iOS app? What's worse is that the article doesn't even state that and it was last edited just last month. I love Plex and I love how feature rich it keeps getting but I sometimes feel that outstanding issues get lost or overlooked for the sake of new features.

    5 years old actually.

    Well anyway, This will probably NEVER get implemented.
    However, With the new implementation of Collections, you could make a collection called recommended and your users can use that to find your recommended content..

    :/ I guess this l o o o n g thread is just a thread in the wind ...
    In the beginning, this thread was anxiously checked daily for the positive words from our great Plex Dev gods .. but with no answer, we then started checking weekly ...... then monthly ....................... then annually. I'm thinking I will check this thread when I am on my way to visit my great grandchildren in an Ubber space car ..
    Actually forget the driving, I'll just check the thread again before I teleport. :) Hopefully I will get to see this fixed.
