Plex is already a popular service with people who want to catalog their video collection and majority of its features have revolved around the video experience, now though Plex is ready to branch into the world of music. Today some new features have been announced that deal squarely with music as the aim is to put users’ music experience at par with their video experience, at least that’s what Plex is saying.

The Plex music experience will allow users to stream songs, playlists and albums from their music library to all of their devices. New features bring the ability to view music videos provided by Vevo, automated recommendations and organization, improved artist info and much more.

Plex has made this announcement during the Consumer Electronics Show 2015. It is going to provide an early look at these premium music updates during CES 2015.

These updates include native support for all major audio formats, with full support for FLAC. Plex is capable of transcoding music files on the fly and can automatically adjust format and quality based on bandwidth to ensure the best possible playback experience.

Plex will use Gracenote for enhanced music recognition and artist information so that users get the most accurate information associated with the music in their library, regardless of the original source. It is now also capable of one-click import from iTunes.

These upgrades will be available for Plex users over the next few weeks.
