LG Cloud Free Storage Services Now Available With 50GB Free Storage For 6 Months
LG Electronics just launches its own cloud storage service known as LG Cloud. It offers 2 Gigabytes absolutely free and 50 GB free for LG product owners for first 6 months. Google Drive seemed to have inspired a lot of companies including smartphone manufacturers to also provide free cloud storage for their customers knowing that in this age, a free space for storage is a necessity especially that people seem not to be able to do their job without the use of the internet or their smartphones. Reportedly, LG Cloud will initially be available in South Korea and the United States but we are hoping LG would eventually offer the same service to other countries considering there are still millions of LG product users around the world.
Currently, the available LG Cloud clients are for Windows and Android devices but we are also hoping that Mac and Linux users would also be included on the list. LG accepts more sign ups as possible and while it was reported that only the people from South Korea and the US would be illegible for this service, however, users from the United Kingdom and other parts of the world have reported they, too, can also sign up for the said service without any problem and still receive the standard 2GB free storage.
After you’ve entered all the basic information needed, you will be brought to the main interface of LG Cloud service but there will be an email for authentication that will be sent to the email address you used in signing up. While you can already use the service right there and then, you still need to verify your account with LG Cloud by clicking the link that goes with the email. Of course, this is the standard operating procedure of any online establishments that accept sign-ups from interested parties.
The interface of the web version is really straightforward; there is a clearly visible “File Upload” button on the upper left. Below that you will be able to see another four buttons for categorization–Folders, Videos, Music and Photos. Clicking anyone of them would display appropriate files. In the same interface, you will be able to delete files and create your own folders or directories. Basically, you will always find your way to uploading your files in the cloud and LG Cloud made it easier for everyone. The client’s interface is also as easy to navigate as the first.
LG plans on adding paid upgrades for its cloud service but it didn’t reveal other information or the pricing yet. But of course, it wouldn’t go beyond the price being offered by other companies offering the same service. One good thing about LG Cloud is that you can access your files via LG SmartTVs, too. If you have one of these, you can stream movies directly from your account to your television set. This service, however, kept me wondering if existing LG product users would be entitled to receive that 50 GB free storage because as of this writing, there is to option to add a device to an LG account.
