Amazon Prime members get Family Vault unlimited photo storage sharing with up to five people
Perhaps fearing the recent launch of an Alexa-supporting Spotify rival fittingly dubbed Amazon Music Unlimited would steal some of Prime’s thunder, the Seattle-based e-commerce giant has just sweetened the deal for subscribers to the fast and free shipping-focused service.
In addition to all the ordering perks you’re probably already familiar with, unlimited Prime Video streaming of tens of thousands of movies and TV episodes, Prime Music access to over a million songs and thousands of curated playlists, as well as free secure unlimited photo storage, Amazon Prime members can now even share their cloud-hoarded pics.
Family Vault is the name of the newly added feature to Prime Photos, allowing you to invite five relatives or friends, including non-Prime subscribers, to your joint digital image library. Each of the six Family Vault users will be able to upload how many stills they like, plus a maximum of 5GB (in total) of videos and “other files.”
Bringing family photos together is therefore “as easy as one-click or swipe from a computer or mobile device”, thanks to the desktop Prime Photos service and free dedicated iOS or Android apps.
Your Family Vault is of course kept under lock and key without compromising on resolution, and you can even use “smart search technology” to seamlessly find pics based on people or places.
