At the Launch of the Galaxy Note 10 Series in August, Samsung announced that its new Galaxy series devices would no longer be equipped with its own Samsung Cloud service and would instead use Microsoft’s OneDrive. After opening the European market, Samsung today announced that it will open the OneDrive experience to Note 10 series users in the U.S.
With this new experience, Samsung’s Gallery app will be home-grown integration of OneDrive, allowing users to sync videos and photos across devices. Once the media is backed up, users can access it from any device, such as mobile devices, PCs, and Macs. Next year, Microsoft will also announce a new OneDrive online photo experience that will show user photos faster and browse using the timeline.
Note 10 series users currently using the Samsung Cloud Storage Program in the U.S. will receive a free 1 year of storage time. If you’re a new oneDrive user, Microsoft will offer free 5GB of storage. If users need more storage space, they can pay to pay for it.
