After a few months of rigorous beta testing, Plex Cloud is now available to all Plex Pass subscribers, the company announced on Thursday. If you’ve been thinking of building your own Plex empire, now’s your chance to do it.
Since Plex began testing the feature, the company says it has run into numerous issues, but everything is now working at full tilt.
“On more than one occasion, our elaborate system of smoke signals that we use to communicate between regions was taken out by solar flares and more exotic threats like a like a light drizzle,” Plex wrote in an announcement post.
Users can use Plex Cloud with the industry’s most popular cloud platforms, including Dropbox, Google Drive, and OneDrive (personal). Unfortunately, Plex Cloud no longer supports Amazon Drive, which was one of the platforms that first supported the feature.
No server needed
Before, Plex users needed to have the necessary equipment to set up their own server. But with Plex Cloud, any Plex Pass subscriber can stream their content from the cloud, no pre-existing equipment necessary. The best part is you can stream your content from any device that supports Plex, from your Android phone to the Apple TV.
A Plex Pass subscription will run you $4.99 per month or $149 for a lifetime subscription.
