How do I use mood information for tracks?

Tip!: Mood information about tracks is a feature of our Premium music libraries, which require an active Plex Pass subscription for the Plex Media Server account.

When using a Premium music library, one of the many pieces of information gathered about your collection (with the help of Gracenote) is "mood" information related to each track. Because your server has that information, it allows you to browse your collection based on different moods.

Browsing Moods For Tracks

Since moods are associated with individual tracks, the primary way to access them is to browse your library "by Track". You can currently do so using either Plex Web App or the Plex for Windows 8.1 app.

In Plex Web App, open the music library and then switch the view to Tracks.

In the left actionbar, use the button top open the Options menu.

Now choose a New Filter and then Moods. You can now select different moods to view.

Once you've chosen one or more Moods, you can play or shuffle the list of filtered tracks as desired.

Browsing Moods by Album

For apps that don't allow you to browse "by Track", you can also access the mood information "by Album".

In Plex Web App, open the music library and then switch the view to Album.

In the left actionbar, use the button top open the Options menu.

Now choose a New Filter and then Moods. You can now select different moods to view.

Once you've chosen one or more Moods, you can play or shuffle the list of filtered albums as desired.

How Do I Use Them On Other Plex Apps?

Not all Plex apps currently let you view the music library "by Track". For apps that don't, you can browse "by Album". You can also make use of playlists. You can select the moods you want and then save them as a playlist using Plex Web App.

Then just name it appropriately.

Now, you can go access your playlists in another app and enjoy your mix of music!
