Microsoft OneDrive to Replace Samsung Cloud for Some Users

Earlier this year, Samsung and Microsoft announced a new partnership to bring more options for increased productivity to its customers. At the time, the companies promised to bring “seamless productivity experiences across devices, applications, and services.” And now, Samsung has started to sync photos and videos of Samsung Cloud users with their Microsoft OneDrive account.

As the company noted during the announcement earlier, the integration is available only for Galaxy Note 10 and Note 10+ users who have Android 10 beta installed in their devices. In case you are interested in using the latest service, you can head to the Gallery app settings menu where you will see option to sync pictures and videos to OneDrive by connecting Microsoft and Samsung Cloud accounts. However, the data transfer won’t apply to the data in the Recycle Bin of the cloud.

After you have completed the process, your free Samsung Cloud storage quota will remain for one year in OneDrive. However, if you need more space, you will need to subscribe to a higher tier. Moreover, Samsung will cancel your current subscription and send you a refund.

Given the 5GB storage is extremely short limited in case you have large amount of data, Microsoft is offering 15GB of additional space at the moment if you switch to OneDrive. However, you won’t be able to undo any changes after the syncing process has been completed.
