Recommendations

The Recommendations feature allows you to "recommend" or "suggest" an item to one of your friends so that they can watch it. The following kinds of items can be recommended:

  • Watch Later
  • Recommendations
  • Channel content

Recommending a Watch Later Item

Before you can recommend an item, you'll first need to log into your Plex account in your Plex app. Once you do so, you'll go into the area containing the item you wish to recommend. For the examples below, we'll use the Watch Later in Plex Web App.

From your Watch Later queue, go into the item you wish to recommend. Then, hit the Menu button:
