Plex Media Player Goes Free for Everyone, Adds Kodi Add-On for Plex Pass Users


It’s been more than a year since the Plex Media Player app launched, and now some important changes are finding their way to users.

First and foremost, the Plex Media Player app is now available, for free, for everyone. At the same time, the folks at Plex are integrating its web app into the Media Player, so users on the desktop can use that interface, instead of the TV-centric one, while on the computer.

The other big addition is the new Kodi add-on. Kodi is another media server, so for folks who use both Plex and Kodi, but weren’t a fan of jumping back and forth, will no longer have to. Plex users can now find their Kodi library right within the Plex app. You need to be a Plex Pass user to access the Kodi add-on.
