Plex Is Shutting Down Its Cloud Streaming Service This November

Plex is closing down its Cloud service, which gives you a chance to stream content put away in your Dropbox, Google Drive or OneDrive storage straight to your associated gadgets – which will no longer be available after November 30th, 2018.

The announcement states:

"We’ve made the difficult decision to shut down the Plex Cloud service on November 30th, 2018. As you may know, we haven’t allowed any new Plex Cloud servers since February of this year, and since then we’ve been actively working on ways to address various issues while keeping costs under control. We hold ourselves to a high standard, and unfortunately, after a lot of investigation and thought, we haven’t found a solution capable of delivering a truly first class Plex experience to Plex Cloud users at a reasonable cost. While we are super bummed about the impact this will have on our happy Cloud users, ending support for it will allow us to focus on improving core functionality, adding new features and content, and delivering on our mission to provide a world-class product that we can all rely on and enjoy."

On November 30th, 2018, the user will no longer be able to access their Plex Cloud server. As with any Plex Media Server, media files themselves will not be affected. That implies clients who need to keep on streaming those files through the Plex need to set up a Plex Media Server on a computer or NAS device on their local network.

Your content will remain in your cloud storage, untouched by Plex. Regardless of whether you utilize Dropbox or Google Drive, they will keep on working as long as you maintain your subscriptions with these services. On November 30th, 2018, all 3rd-party cloud storage services will be unlinked from Plex Cloud.

You have until the point that November 30 to relocate your content; Plex has a FAQ page on its site with more information.
