A few weeks ago, Dropbox was testing the beta version of their automatic photo/video upload feature for desktop and offering free storage to anyone who tried it out. Today, they launched the latest version of their Android app, which automatically uploads your photos and videos to Dropbox (using Wi-Fi or your data plan).
To encourage users to test out the new app features, they are giving extra Dropbox storage space to those who try out the automatic photo/video upload features in the app. On your first photo upload, you will get 500MB of extra storage added to your account. As you continue uploading images/video through the app, more free storage will be added to your account in 500MB increments, up to a total of 3GB.
If you took advantage of the desktop automatic photo/video upload freebie, you will keep the extra storage space you earned, but you can only earn up to a total of 5GB of extra storage. Although this offer is for Android users only, an iPhone version of the app update is reportedly on the way.
