Plex, the popular multimedia streaming service, has just announced a variety of new smart playlist and music video features to be shown off at CES 2015. The new features mainly encompass a more music-oriented path than we’ve seen from the app in the past. This update is quite large, and should be rolling out to users in the coming weeks. Here are all of the improvements coming to the app:

  • Using the same Gracenote database as iTunes, Plex will now create personalized “Plex Mix” playlists with the click of a button. Playlists can be separated by genre, mood and even by tempo. What’s more, you can also get personalized recommendations based on your music taste.
  • If you’re a Plex Pass subscriber, you’ll soon be able to take advantage of streaming HD music videos from VEVO to match music from your personal library. You can stream these music videos via any mobile or home device.
  • With the addition of Gracenote, music recognition will be much more accurate. Songs will be able to be appropriately tagged, even if the original source or metadata isn’t included with the track.

On top of the new features, Plex is also getting an updated interface to help completely refresh the app. Here’s a first look at the new UI:
