I just use NuVue (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.immersiondesignstudio.nuvue&hl=en) to see who's playing what on my plex servers. it doesnt do widgets but I have a permanent notification when someone is playing something
Not really a plugin, but nuVue is an android app that syncs with your server and displays your libraries and can optionally send notifications when new stuff is added.
I've never used it much (I only share with some close friends), but the feature I like the most about it is that if other users on your server download the android app, you can send them messages via nuVue as notifications. E.g. "hey everyone, server's about going to be off this Tuesday noon to 6", or "hey Dan and his weird girlfriend, stop watching all that Darkwing Duck"
I use an Android app called NuVue. It is free and lets you see what has been added and monitor any server activity. If you pay for the premium version, any of your users can use the free app and get notifications for new media added to the server.

I did something like this until I discovered nuVue Every time someone starts streaming it creates a notification on my phone. It shows who is streaming, what they are watching, and a progress bar.
It can also notify you of new things added to the library.
re: 1, /u/eareye mentioned plexwatch, which is great. but if you're looking for something much easier to install, if you're on android, and if you're willing to pay $2, then you can install nuvue.
If you don't mind buying an app you can switch to nuVue... it just went on sale, too. I personally think the extra sleekness over sending notifications through pushbullet is worth it.

I've been using nuvue for a while, works extremely well for my purposes! https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.immersiondesignstudio.nuvue
I use an Android app called NuVue to keep tabs on what is being watched and what has been added.
If you use Android, check out nuVue. It scans your Plex server for newly added media and sends you a notification when it finds something.
I've been using it for about a month and a half and love it so far.
Have you seen nuVue? Similar idea I think, but runs on your phone. https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.immersiondesignstudio.nuvue
I got nuVue for Plex a few years ago. Development stopped two years ago, but it still tells me what others are playing, what's been added to my server, and sends a daily email to my users with what's new. And I can also send out messages through it.
Plex now has the notifications, though not quite the same way. I'll miss it when it's gone.
It was Android; here's a link to the store, if it lets you look at it. https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.immersiondesignstudio.nuvue
