Plex Cloud was launched in September last year. The feature allows Plex users to store their media content in the cloud instead of having to configure the server on a local computer or a NAS setup. The feature has been in beta since then but it’s now exiting that stage. Plex has announced that Plex Cloud is now available to all of its Plex Pass subscribers.
Plex Cloud will enable users to access their movies, TV shows, pictures, and more across all of their devices regardless of where they might be. However, this privilege does come at a price.
Subscribers first have to pay $4.99 per month or $39.99 per annum for a Plex Pass subscription. They also have to provide a cloud storage account where all of the content will be stored. The Plex Cloud service currently has support for Google Drive, Dropbox, and OneDrive.
Given that all of these services provide 10-15GB of cloud storage for free, that’s not going to be enough since most media content tends to be quite hefty these days so chances are you will have to pay up for additional cloud storage as well and that cost depends on your preferred provider.
Nevertheless, this remains a very good option for those who want to have access to their media content at all times without having to go through the hassle of setting up a Plex server.
