Plexamp was born out of a combination of passion for music and Plex. It was one of the early fruits of Plex Labs – the place for employee passion projects and community creativity. Built by a handful of people in their spare time, Plexamp may or may not have started over a few whisk[e]y sours.

Over the years Plexamp has evolved from a small, highly opinionated music player, to being the flagship place for music in Plex. As a standalone application, it provides a (highly customizable) focused experience for music, with features found nowhere else. It's also everywhere you'd want to be, including iOS, Android, macOS, Windows, and Linux.

No Money, No Cry

We want every music user on Plex to have the best possible experience. Rock solid streaming and high quality audio, in a streamlined application which is a treat for the eyes. This is why we've decided to release a new version of Plexamp which allows everyone to use it, absolutely free.

While there are tons of pro features in Plexamp for our Plex Pass subscribers, the free functionality still offers an array of enviable features.
