Mobile Sync

If you're flying across the Atlantic, taking a subway to work, or even just relaxing in the park, you can still play your content! Use Mobile Sync to load copies of your content on your phone or tablet so you can use it when you don't have internet access. Mobile Sync also helps make sure you always have the next episode of your favorite show ready for your commute.

Cloud Sync

Now you can have your Plex Media Server automatically optimize a copy of specified items from your library and upload the copy to a cloud storage provider such as Dropbox, Google Drive, or Box. That way, you can stream content even if your Server isn't accessible!
