Late last year Plex revealed their invite-only beta for a new feature called Plex Cloud, today that feature was released to the public, allowing anyone to create their own private and personal media servers with third-party storage services like Dropbox, Google Drive, Microsoft OneDrive and more.

The feature does require a Plex Pass subscription, however, it does mean that you get an always-on media server over the cloud, without the need for a computer to be on at the same time as it runs from the cloud.

So you don’t have to rely on a dedicated desktop computer or network attached storage to stream movies, TV shows, photos and other media, just a Plex Pass.

Plex Pass costs $4.99 a month or $149.99 for lifetime access in the US, or £3.99 a month/ £94.99 for a lifetime subscription in the UK.

Check out the video below for a look at Plex Cloud.

[Update: Plex removed the video and uploaded a new one so we have replaced the code.]
