With our brand new Sonos service, you can now browse and play your entire Plex music collection on any Sonos device, right from the Sonos app. This means you’ll benefit from our awesome library and discovery features, and your personal music will look better than ever on Sonos.

Plex notes that users with a Plex Pass “will also find their music collections automatically organized via metadata and sonic fingerprinting,” and its feature called “Plex Mix” is also limited to premium users through the new Sonos app.

The Plex media server is available to install on computers and NAS devices, and automatically organizes video, music, and photo content making it accessible through apps available for iOS, Apple TV, and other smartphone, tablet, and TV devices.

The Plex support for Sonos is starting off in Beta and is available to add through the Sonos Lab section within the Sonos app. But you’ll need to be part of the beta program to do so. There’s more info on getting set up on the Plex website
