After a somewhat lengthy beta period, Plex has launched Plex Cloud for all of its Plex Pass subscribers. Now, any Plex Pass subscriber can store their media in a cloud account, rather than on their local network, and still access it anywhere through the Plex app.
The big benefit of this is, of course, that you should always be able to access your media content through Plex no matter where you are. That takes the onus off of making sure your PC or media server is always up, running and has a solid internet connection. That's an important distinction for anyone dealing with something like a power outage or even a dodgy internet connection.
As of right now, Plex Cloud can connect to your OneDrive (personal), Dropbox or Google Drive accounts for streaming. The only potential barrier for anyone considering a move to cloud streaming over running your own server is cost; on top of Plex Pass' usual $4.99 per month charge, you'll also have to add in the cost of your cloud storage plan. And if you have a lot of media to store, that could definitely add up.
