I personally got the new Moto G from Motorola and I noticed this awesome perk that I wanted to share with you guys. In this article I”ll be sharing how you can redeem 50GB of free space on Google Drive through your Moto X or Moto G phone.
If you have one the latest phones from Motorola (Moto X or Moto G) then you’ll be lucky to receive 50GB of free storage on Google Drive. Usually, everyone can get up too 15GB of free Google Drive storage. But if you have purchased a unlocked or on-contract Motorola phone then you will be able to redeem 50 gigabytes of free storage. In total you will receive 65GB of drive storage. This is alot of space to start keeping and sharing your photos, documents and other files. With Google Drive you can access those files from anywhere.
So there is a catch, if you can call it that. The offer is only valid for two years. Meaning from the moment you redeem the offer on your phone there will be a 2 year countdown. Once the two years is up you will no longer be able to add to your 50GB of storage but you will be able to share, edit and retreive your existing files.
This Youtube video showcases the promotional offer from Motorola.
Here is how to redeem 50GB of free storage on Google Drive through your Moto X or Moto G.
(For people launching the Google Drive app on their phone for the first time.)
