Other Android Users

For our releases, we provide a .APK file that users can use to manually install or "sideload" the app onto their device. This is useful for users who have a Plex Pass subscription. Once the app is installed, simply sign into your Plex account in the app to unlock it.

Tip!: If you're not sure how to "sideload" onto your device, Google, Youtube, or other resources should be able to help you out.

The APK files can be found alongside the release notes for each release. To find them, go to our "Release Announcements" forum and look for the most recent post in the Plex for Android thread.
