Plex update introduces camera upload feature, exclusively for PlexPass subscribers
Plex has been a bit quiet lately, but rest assured that the most popular media server is being improved without rest. The latest update has arrived just in time to bring Android users some fun, but this is a bit of an exclusive party. Are you in the guest list?
Plex has updated its Android and Windows Phone app with the ability to use Camera Upload (as well as the usual bug fixes and improvements). This feature grabs every single image you take with your Android device and uploads them to your Plex library. Who needs hassles in the age of communication, right? This will be done automatically, leaving your favorite images ready for viewing from any other Plex-compatible device.
Of course, there are multiple options for managing your uploads. You can turn the feature on/off in the settings. You can select which library and album photos are uploaded to. Obviously, choosing whether you want uploads to be done only via WiFi or through mobile data is also an option. There is one big catch, though – this feature is exclusive to Plex Pass subscribers.
Plex Pass is currently priced at $3.99 per month or $29.99 per year. If you are really committed to the service, you can also take advantage of the $74.99 lifetime pass. You will have no trouble using this new feature if you are already a subscriber, though! The update is ready and available at the Google Play Store, so go get it. And just in case you are interested, the Windows 8 app also got Sync support.
