GoPro Plus is now offering a boost to its subscription service. From now on the service offers unlimited cloud storage space for photos and videos. Earlier, users could upload unlimited photos but there was a 35-hour limit for video footage. When GoPro launched Plus, its subscription service for cloud storage was a not huge. For $5 a month, users could only store limited amount of photos and videos online.
The new unlimited storage also comes with an increased discount on accessories. Subscribers will now have 50 percent off most mounts and accessories. The previous plan offered a 20 percent discount.
The subscription service is designed specifically for users with a Hero5, Hero6, or Hero7 camera. Because these cameras have the capability of uploading content to the cloud. The program launched last year as a way to automatically back up files, later adding the option to replace a broken camera at a reduced cost.
The unlimited video and photo storage, without any downgrading of quality, should be a crowd pleaser for many GoPro users. Google has offered unlimited storage on Photos and video for some time, but only if you let its algorithm compress your image. Otherwise users have to pay up to keep things in their original quality.
The improved GoPro Plus now includes unlimited, automatic cloud backup for the Wi-Fi-equipped cameras. The plan previously allowed users to store up to 35 hours of video footage at full resolution along with unlimited photos. With the update, subscribers can stash all their video on the cloud, which GoPro says means skipping the process of transferring to computers and requires fewer memory cards.
Previously, users only have access a library of music to use in your edits, and a get a 20 percent discount on accessories. Early last year, the company added a new benefit. Now, the company extends that unlimited feature to video, and importantly at native resolution. Bit on the other hand, the 4K videos won’t be compressed at all.
