❱ Plex Assistant
Plex Assistant is a component to allow Google Assistant to cast Plex media to Google devices with a bit of help from IFTTT.
"Hey Google, tell Plex to play The Walking Dead on the Downstairs TV."
You can use the component’s service without IFTTT as well in order to call the commands however you’d like. Visit the services tab in HA’s Developer Tools after install to test it out.
Currently this has only been tested on my setup with first generation Chromecasts.
This is just a side project made to fill the absence of native Google Assistant support in Plex and because the Phlex/FlexTV projects aren’t in working order at the moment (is it just me?).
This project is not a priority as Plex could add Google Assistant support or FlexTV may become viable again at any time. That being said, I will try to add features and fix issues until that time. As always, I both welcome and greatly appreciate pull requests.
Thank you for understanding.
