Amazon now offers Prime customers unlimited photo storage in the Cloud Drive app
It seems as if everyone wants to get in on the photo storage game, with OneDrive, DropBox, Google+, Facebook, and more all offering users lots of free storage, along with automatic uploads that take place almost instantly after snapping photos on your phone. Since everyone takes a ton of selfies these days, it’s likely that many people have already exhausted their free photo allotment on Dropbox, or maybe even Google+ Photos or OneDrive. If this is the case, and you also subscribe to Amazon Prime, you’ll want to check out the Cloud Drive app.
Starting today, Amazon Prime subscribers now get unlimited photo storage, and 5GB of storage for everything else. Non-Prime members just get 5GB regardless. This is device-agnostic, which isn’t always the case with Amazon – in other words, it doesn’t matter whether you upload your photos using the Android or iOS apps, or using the web application on a desktop computer.
Some Android enthusiasts might like to point out that Google already offers unlimited photo storage, but this is only for photos that are shrunken down to a 2048×2048 resolution. Amazon, on the other hand, is willing to host all your photos for free, in their full-sized uncompressed glory.
