Following the release of Dropbox for Windows 8 a couple of days ago, the insanely-popular file-hosting service announced today a tighter integration with Samsung. The new partnership will expand Dropbox’s cloud storage into Samsung’s portfolio of products, including cameras and televisions. Do note that the two companies have already forged a special partnership together last year, when Samsung offered 50GB of free Dropbox storage for every Galaxy S3 purchase.
At CES 2013, Dropbox says that the “deeper integration” will include Samsung’s latest products, such as the Galaxy Grand smartphone and smart cameras. This means that Samsung cameras will now posses the capability to automatically push photos into Dropbox’s cloud storage. Samsung’s Galaxy Camera, which we recently reviewed, and the Galaxy Note 2 are also preloaded with 50GB of free Dropbox storage. As for Samsung’s new smart TVs, Dropbox can be accessed by using the AllShare Play application.
