Dropbox Releases New Beta Build, Offering Up An Extra 5G Of Storage To Anyone Willing To Test The App Out

Our favorite cloud storage service has a nice little treat for anyone brave enough to beta test their latest app. Right now, Dropbox is offering up to an extra 5G of storage for testing out their new automatic upload feature. For every 500MB of photos and videos you automatically upload, Dropbox will reward you with a 500MB space bonus, up to 5GB. Automatic upload seems to be the primary feature added in this beta build, but here’s what they list as new on their site:

  • Automatically uploads photos and videos in the background using Wi-Fi or data plan
  • 500MB of free space on first photo uploaded automatically
  • Upload files of any size (no more 180 MB limit!)
  • Support for resuming file uploads when there are network issues
  • Various performance improvements & bug fixes

I’ve been using the automatic upload on Google+ for some time now, and while it’s useful, you just have to be aware of your signal strength, battery life, and data plan. If you’re looking for some extra Dropbox storage and don’t mind testing this beta out, just hit the source link below. It appears to work for both the desktop client and the beta Android app.
