From The Plex Cloud team!
It’s been a while since you’ve seen any updates to Plex Cloud. You’re probably wondering, “What’s going on with Plex Cloud?” It’s perfectly understandable considering we have been quiet lately. Well, we have been very hard at work and are happy to say we’ve got some big updates to share with you today!
Before we get to the news, we would like to take a moment to thank you for being part of the Plex Cloud beta. It has been great to see so much participation in the beta forum. The forum has been a valuable resource for our engineering, product, and support teams, and particularly beneficial in helping us to surface the root causes of some of the toughest obstacles we have faced.
First, we expect to begin ramping up invites starting December 5th! While we can’t promise when exactly you may receive an invitation, know that we are eager to share Plex Cloud with many more people as soon as possible. We can assure you that we will not rest until every one of you is up and Plexing in the Cloud!
Second, Starting today, we’re announcing new support for Google Drive, Dropbox, and Microsoft OneDrive! All three Cloud storage providers are available for you to use right now. We’ve made managing your media in the Cloud more flexible by allowing you to link multiple Cloud storage providers, so you can create libraries with content from any of them. Here’s a quick guide to help you get started adding or changing Cloud storage providers:
- Log in to Plex Web and click on your user icon in the upper right corner, then click Account.
- Click Plex Cloud in the menu on the left of the Account page.
- Link, unlink, or reauthorize any cloud storage providers you have, as appropriate.
- Your linked Cloud storage providers will be available as file location choices when adding or editing a library.
Finally, while we have been able to introduce many new improvements to our underlying Plex Cloud infrastructure, we have run into technical challenges with the Amazon Drive integration. We are working hard to resolve the issues, so please stay tuned. In the meantime, we really hope you can help us test and validate the other Cloud storage provider integrations once we get you into the Beta.

In the meantime, we really hope you can help us test and validate the other Cloud storage provider integrations, which are all working great.
We’re committed to bringing Plex Cloud to the public as a polished, high-performance product, with a variety of Cloud storage options to choose from. Go Cloud!
Once again, thanks for testing Plex Cloud and working through the rough edges with us!
