Can I use it?

Yes! There are currently multiple distributions shipping Plasma Bigscreen.

The interface is using KWin over Wayland and is now mostly stable, albeit a little rough around the edges in some areas. A subset of the normal KDE Plasma features are available. This makes it possible to use and develop for Plasma Bigscreen on your desktop/laptop.

What can it do?

There are quite a few TV-optimized apps that are now being bundled with the various distributions, allowing a wide range of basic functions. These are mostly built with Kirigami, KDE’s interface framework allowing convergent UIs that work very well in a TV remote-only environment.

Where can I find…

The code for the shell can be found on

You can also ask your questions in the Plasma Bigscreen community groups and channels.
