The Plex Skill enables users to get information about and control playback of their media library on any Plex compatible device. Once you have installed the Plex Media Server, you can start playing your favorite movies, music, and TV shows on your devices, all by voice.
Now you can plop down on the couch and say Alexa, ask Plex to play The Big Lebowski without ever lifting a finger.
The Plex Skill also provides information like What's On Deck or can even Suggest Something to Watch.
Have a killer music playlist you put together? You can ask to Play the playlist Backyard Barbecue or even request to Play the Artist Outkast.

Now put down that remote and enjoy your media, all controlled by your voice.
