In Spain we have multiple options to save our files in the cloud, and despite the fact that Google Photos is the most popular for its free format, as the end of this modality approaches, we expected to see changes in its rivals to try to gain notoriety.
OneDrive, Microsoft’s cloud, has recently been updated to become the go-to choice for those who shoot a lot of video from mobile. The reason? Now you can save backup copies of your videos up to 8K resolution and play them back.
OneDrive now supports large 8K videos
8K video recording is one of the latest developments in the mobile market. There are few capable phones, and although the results are still to be desired (4K video recording is much more mature in terms of frame rate and stabilization) in the end it is a matter of time before it reaches the same degree of excellence.
But if you already enjoy 8K video recording and want to have your backups in the cloud, OneDrive already offers this possibility. Despite the fact that the company already allowed saving videos in this format with a maximum size of 250 GB without compression, from now on it will also be possible to play these videos in 8K format from the cloud, making sense of recording backup copies.
Why do you want to play 8K video if your mobile screen doesn’t have that resolution? Well, beyond being able to access it in its original resolution, it opens the door for you to be able to watch directly on an 8K television or access it to perform video editing.
In addition to this change, we have a new home screen and Microsoft’s cloud now supports Samsung mobile motion photos, a minor addition for most.
The OneDrive entry now saves and plays your videos in 8K because… why not? appears first in The Free Android.
