The ?Samsung Cloud Service? was introduced towards the beginning of August, alongside the power-packed Galaxy Note 7 phablet. Following the debut, the South Korean tech giant announced that 15GB of free cloud storage will be made available to the Note 7 users across the globe. Now, the same service has been extended to the flagship Galaxy S7 and its curved-display-clad sibling Galaxy S7 Edge.

It?s a well-known fact that Cloud services are taking over the world. In fact, one of the reasons for the recent job cuts in the tech industry, including Cisco?s, is because companies are moving to Cloud service offerings from service providers like Amazon and Microsoft, among others.

Such services are capable of handling hardware, software, databases and even networks. Hence, it goes without saying that such services reduce the dependency on employees to manage umpteen layers of technology.

The Samsung Cloud service for the Samsung Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge is now available in Italy.?SamMobile says this Cloud service will be made available to users with the help of a software update. The same update will also deliver the Android security patch for August, along with some changes to NFC and Bluetooth.

This firmware update is of size 151.89MB and it will be rolled out as an over-the-air (OTA) update. This update can also be availed by manually downloading the file by navigating to the device?s Settings -> About device menu. The other way is to get the file via Samsung?s Smart Switch software by connecting the device to a PC.

The same source says the Samsung Cloud service will be introduced to the Galaxy Note 5, Galaxy S6, Galaxy S6 Edge and Galaxy S6 Edge+ in the near future. This free Cloud service is apparently part of the Smart Switch feature, which was built to let device users transfer data easily and quickly when switching to a new handset.
