Language Filter

plex-web

#1

For almost a year now, PMS has had language filters available through its API. But we have yet to see this implemented in any Plex client. Since Plex Web is the the primary place to get your library organized, it would be the best place to start see these implemented.

 

Please? Pretty please?

I understand.

Dear Plex Team, please implement the Language Filters in clients!!!!

I completely agree with you Gundy!
(it will be perfect to learn foreign languages)

Given that filters are being upgraded with custom filter support in Plex/Web 3, maybe it's also time to add support for filtering on additional properties, such as audio languages?

Any news on this, now that 3 months have passed? This seems like pretty low-hanging fruit given that the whole filtering framework is already there.

That's a feature I would really appreciate, any progress on development?
