In case you missed it, yesterday we exclusively reported that OneDrive is getting a new “co-owned folders” feature. But the good news doesn’t stop here, as we have received more exclusive information regarding what’s to come with OneDrive.
LiveSide has learnt that OneDrive will offer up to an extra 8 GB of storage for users when they complete certain tasks. Below is a screenshot showing the welcome screen outlining how you can get this extra storage:
We understand that when OneDrive launches, there will be two bonus offers for users to get extra free storage, these include:
- Referral bonus – Users will be able to earn up to a maximum of 5 GB of extra storage by referring their friends to join OneDrive. For every friend you invite and actually joins OneDrive, both you and your friend will get an extra 500 MB of storage. You can only refer up to 10 friends for this offer.
- Camera roll bonus – Users will be able to earn 3 GB of extra storage by simply choosing to sync photos from their camera roll to OneDrive using the OneDrive app for iOS, Android, or the built-in Windows Phone function.
We understand that these bonus storage will be in addition to the free 7 GB of storage that all new users get (or if you were one of the early SkyDrive adopters, 25 GB), and that they do not expire.
As always, whilst we’re certain that the information is accurate at the time of posting, things may change between now and when OneDrive gets released. But this should be welcoming news to many – after all who wouldn’t like some extra free storage?
