Google teams up with HTC to offer 25-50GB Drive space for two years on select HTC devices

HTC fans listen up, Google has a deal for you! In collaboration with HTC, Google is offering up extra Google Drive space for two years to select HTC devices. The deal will apply to both new and existing owners.

Here’s how it works: HTC One Max owners simply need to launch up the Google Drive app and will be presented with the promo offer. You’ll then push redeem and will then find 50GB of extra space added to your account for the next two years.

For the rest of the HTC crowd things get a bit more complicated. First, only select 2013 models like the HTC One seem to be covered by this promo. Second, you’ll have to wait until Sense 5.5+ hits your device, which is right now for some HTC One owners in Europe.

Once the Sense 5.5+ upgrade arrives, your Google Drive app should have a notification that presents you with the free space offer. Keep in mind that you’ll only 25GB of extra space for the HTC One and other eligible devices (besides the Max).

If you’re in a market that will be waiting on Sense 5.5+ for a while longer, don’t worry – this offer isn’t going anywhere. You have between now and January 1, 2016 to redeem the promotion. For more details, you’ll want to head on over to Google’s official support page.

    There still the 25Gb from Dropbox aswell, for the One at least dunno about the other devices so this comes on top

    the sony offer of 50gb with box is better IMHO – because its for life. this business of “two years” is disappointing

    • MasterMuffin

      What happens after the two years? I’m a little scared, I got 100Gb for a year in Dropbox! They’ll just delete my stuff??

        Most cloud services usually define what happens somewhere in their help page:

          Thanks! So just before my offer ends I need to fill the 100Gb with just crap and laught at their faces :D

            100 GB of cat memes.

          • MasterMuffin

            And troll faces

      • APai

        I guess go back to standard capacity and ask you to delete stuff by some date , or ask you to go for a subscription ?

      I have an HTC One and besides the material it is built of, it sucks. Sense is imo ugly, though not as much as touchwiz. S-ON and locked bootloaders suck. The front speakers are fine, but the bazels are far to big in comparison to the 4.7 inch display. I’m running AOSP and I can’t change the LED colors.. only red and green ffs! The camera sucks in comparison to old 8mpx cameras, I rarely did some good pics at night because of the mighty ultra pixel cam. I would trade it back for my old Nexus 4 despite the lack of LTE, but I’m patiently waiting for the Nexus 5…
