Is the Xbox One Plex app abandoned?

This seems to be an abandoned app, no meaningful updates in over a year and a half. It's slow, missing key features, lists dont remember your position when coming back to them after being inside a list item.

Are there not enough Xbox One users to warrant supporting this app? There's somewhere in the neighborhood of 30 million xbox ones sold. Would more Xbox One users change the approach to supporting this app? Or are video game platforms not preferred by Plex as clients? I didn't have a lot of experience with it but from using it a little a couple years ago the PS4 app didn't seem to work very well especially in terms of streaming performance.

It's a shame because the Xbox has some nice video features, the video PQ is excellent on it.

I'm a hard core Plex lover and consistent financial supporter, it just bums me out that my client platform of choice seems to be considered unworthy of support by the Plex team.

    No, the app is not abandoned. A lot of the recent fixes that have gone out have been server side fixes so they don't necessitate an update to the app. Even with that there has been a major change to the core platform of the Xbox One which added a lot of time to the current update in the works.

    Good point jmckee, but I understand seththetechy's question, as the Xbox One client is one of the few apps that has yet to see the updated design. This hasn't changed much since even the Xbox 360 days.

    I can only speak anecdotally, but the app itself is pretty solid and works well (why fix something that isn't broken?), but the lack of design updates is a bit disappointing.
