(Ping! Zine Web Tech Magazine) – Amazon is offering unlimited photo cloud storage for its Prime customers in hopes to lure more users to its $99 a year service.
“Most people have a lifetime of birthdays, vacations, holidays, and everyday moments stored across numerous devices. And, they continue to create billions of photos every year. Now, Prime members have a simple, secure place to store them all for free,” says Amazon via press release. “Starting today, members can securely store their existing photo collections, automatically upload new photos taken and access them anytime, anywhere, at no cost.”
The online retail giant noted that Prime Photos allow users to upload photos from iOS, Android, Fire tablet, Fire phone, Mac, and Windows, as well as giving customers the ability to access photos from almost all devices, including Amazon Fire TV, PS4/3, and certain Samsung and LG smart TVs.
Currently Amazon Prime Photos is only available to Prime users in the U.S. The company has not yet announced when the service will be available in other countries.
