New look app?

I've seen versions on plex run on newer samsung smart TVs and it looks amazing compared to the current layout of the app. Any ideas on if and/or when we may see a change?

Hi nicbruzzese
Unlikely I would say - the plex app in this forum (for 2010 to 2015 Samsung TV’s) was developed by Orca and is a rock steady app with lots of features. For health reasons Orca has said he will not be developing this app going forward - though we all hope his health improves - without him there wouldn’t be a Plex app for these TV’s.

The newer Plex app for 2016 + Samsung TV’s is being developed directly by Plex - there is a separate forum for it on these boards, and as you can see if you look at the forum has a number of issues and is not as full featured as Orca’s. Having used both I much prefer Orca’s.

I’m not 100% sure but I doubt that the Plex people are developing an app for the older TV’s when there is a perfectly good one already available?

I am going to hope this is the case. My Samsung 2012 e-series doesn’t need anything newer when the one I have now isn’t broken … If it’s not broke, don’t fix it :neutral:
