After claiming this free 50 GB, eligible users now have a total of 55 GB of cloud space (combined with the regular 5 GB). This storage is more than enough for most users and can accommodate most cloud storage needs. Oh, and the offer is limited to Indian customers only.

So what’s new in it? The main purpose for this cloud service is the upcoming OnePlus TV integration.

The free cloud storage can be claimed under Settings >> Cloud service. At the moment, this service is only available for OnePlus 7T and 7T Pro users. However, it will soon be available on all OnePlus devices as from the OnePlus 6 onwards via upcoming software updates.

For those worried about the security of their data, OnePlus says that the Data stored in OnePlus Indian Cloud Service will be encrypted and stored locally.
