Well, it’s almost here again. That day when our nation’s finest technical minds are focused, laser-like, on fake product announcements and promo videos to match. It’s not as if we haven’t been guilty in the past. Some may remember The Great Rickroll of 2013. Clearly one of our finest moments.
But 2019 is all about empowering our loyal friends. Our tireless server admins. The ones who toil day after day on behalf of their own loving friends and family. Ask yourselves: isn’t it time you give the Gift of Rick?
Since we want folks to be able to get things set up and in place before the 1st, we are letting you know about this today. If you have an active Plex Pass subscription, all you need to do is grab the latest Plex Pass Server beta release and check the “April Fools 2019” setting under Settings > Extras (if you already installed the beta release and don’t see the setting, try restarting your server) and we’ll take care of the rest. On April 1st your shared users will get a very special Rickroll before the first movie they play that day; it has an emoji heart and everything!
I know it’s been a while since we’ve blogged, but on a more serious note (and not wanting to give too much away) April is going to be massive for us on several platforms. Stay tuned. There are seriously awesome things to come.
… and good luck getting that song out of your head! Rick and Roll!
