HTC has just doubled the amount of free Google Drive storage for the HTC One (M8) and HTC One Max smartphones. The company previously provided 50GB of Drive storage to the said devices, but has now bumped it up to 100GB. This is applicable to both new and existing users of the two smartphones.

If you are an existing user, you would receive a mail from Google announcing the extra 50GB free storage for the remainder of the two year period on the same Gmail id you had registered while availing the free Drive storage. Also Read - HTC Wildfire E Lite listed on Google Play Console
After the expiry of free storage, you can either pay for the extra storage, or live happily with the 15GB that Google offers for free to everyone.
New users are required to redeem the offer from the Google Drive app on their handset. If you encounter any error, or are unsure if your handset is eligible for the free 100GB space, you can check the Google s FAQ page.
Interestingly, the HTC Desire 816, HTC Desire 610 are also eligible for the free storage boost. Though, users rocking an HTC Sense 5+, Sense 6, HTC One, HTC Butterfly S, HTC One Mini, or HTC Desire 601 are being offered only 25GB.
