The new Plex Collections feature guide lets you group all of your media better in any way you see fit. Check out how the feature works and how it can help you organize your Plex library today.

The brand new Plex Collections feature aims to deliver on a much-requested feature on the official Plex forums: Collections.

Collections are a way to gather and organize your media in custom ways. For example, you may want to group all of your Zombie content in a collection called “Zombies”. Or maybe you want to sort all superhero media in a Collection called “Marvel vs DC”. The new Plex Collections feature lets you do that and even more, including:

  • Customize how items in a Collection are displayed in Plex: Hide items from your library that are in a Collection, show them alongside each other, or disable Collections completely.
  • Set a custom background and poster for each collection.
  • Sort Collections by release date or alphabetically
  • In the top level view, you can filter out to show all Collections only.
  • Place movies, TV shows, music, and other different media types in to the same Collection for quick reference and viewing


The new Plex Collections feature is currently available on the online web player ( web version only), Android, Android TV, iOS, and Apple TV. Support for more features is planned for the future.

Consider hiding yourself on Plex with a reliable VIP VPN service like IPVanish. If your ISP has caps on how much you can use the internet or if you live in an area where content is geo-blocked, a VPN can make you appear as if you are from anywhere in the world. IPVanish has some advantages of its competitors too:
Tier 1 hardware (no speed slowdown)
Log-free, so you can’t be tracked
7 day money back guarantee
The ability to be configured right at your router, for a hassle-free experience.
