Plex is shutting down Plex Cloud in November

Plex will be shutting down their Plex Cloud service on November 30th, as first reported on by Variety. After halting the creation of new cloud servers in February due to performance and quality issues, Plex has decided to stop supporting the service for good. Plex Cloud allowed Plex users to run a virtual Plex server in the cloud by uploading their media to cloud storage services like Dropbox, Google Drive, and Microsoft’s OneDrive. When Plex Cloud first launched, it supported Amazon Drive, which offered unlimited storage for $59.99 a year. Plex dropped support for Amazon Drive shortly after launching Plex Cloud and Amazon dropped their unlimited plan soon after. Plex Cloud was a compelling option while paired with an affordable unlimited cloud storage plan, but it likely became less attractive to many when support for Amazon Drive was lost. Plex Cloud was a great concept and good when it worked correctly, but it seems like it was a service that was ahead of its time.
