Flickr now offering 1 terabyte of free storage, and an updated Android app
update that iOS saw back in December. So, the Android update now features the new edge-to-edge photo layout, 16 photo filters, and more.
But, the real story here is that Flickr has just pulled a Gmail. Just like Gmail caused a huge shift in what was offered for email storage, Flickr has a chance to do that for photo storage. Every user now gets 1 terabyte free. A terabyte isn't a storage size that many people consider, unless you deal with video files, so Yahoo describes it this way: "Just how big is a terabyte? Well, you could take a photo every hour for forty years without filling one." That's pretty impressive.
For comparison's sake, Google now offers 15GB of shared storage between Gmail, G+ Photos, and Drive, and it would cost $49.99 per month to upgrade that to 1TB. Flickr is giving it to you for free.
