Amazon may have bumped up the yearly cost of Prime for customers earlier this year (a $20 increase to $99/year), but the online retail giant has been making upgrades across the board to further justify the increase. In June, the company launched its ad-free Prime Music service and today it is announcing unlimited photo storage for Prime subscribers.
The unlimited photo storage will come via Amazon Cloud Drive, and users can upload images via their iOS, Android, Kindle Fire tablet/phone devices as well as via Windows or Mac computers. In addition to being able to view the upload images via the aforementioned devices, you will also be able to peruse your online photo library on the Amazon Fire TV, Fire TV stick, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, and select smart TVs from Samsung and LG.
Most important, however, is the fact that customers will be able to upload their images in their original format, preserving the quality of each and every shot taken.
“With free unlimited photo storage, we’re providing one more reason for members to use Prime every day,” said Greg Greeley, Vice President Amazon Prime. “Prime has always allowed members to conveniently save time and save money, and now with Prime Photos they can save memories too.”
Current Amazon Prime users can sign in now to start uploading their photos to Amazon Cloud Drive.
