HTC One and HTC One Max owners to get 25GB and 50GB of free Google Drive storage

Owners of HTC smartphones including the HTC One and HTC One Max are set to get between 25GB and 50GB free Google Drive storage, as consumers reap the benefits of Google and HTC's partnership.

In an bulletin on Google's support page, the search giant revealed that when the latest update to HTC's Android overlay, Sense 5+, becomes available, certain smartphones that are eligible for the update - including the HTC One - will receive 25GB of free Drive storage.

Owners of the HTC One Max phablet meanwhile are too receive a whopping 50GB of free Drive storage right from the off.

The free storage then runs for two years, after which, presumably users will have to pay for whatever level they would like to keep on.

However, considering that most people get a new device after two years, if you're sticking with HTC, users will get the offer again when a new phone is purchased/new contract started. The offer is running right to 1 January 2016, with consumers receiving the full two years from whatever point they register between now and then.

The offer is also available to business and enterprise customers.

To get the offer, Google says that all you need to do is launch the preloaded Google Drive application on your device, press redeem when asked then follow the screen prompts to complete the process.
