How to get 10 extra gigabytes of free cloud storage on Google Drive

Need more storage space on Google Drive?

Google is offering users an additional 10 gigabytes of free cloud storage for the next two years if they download and try the company's Quickoffice app, which recently received a major update and is now available free.

Quickoffice lets users create and edit Microsoft Office files from their Apple iOS and Android devices.

"And while the easiest thing to do is simply convert your old files to Google Docs, Sheets and Slides, Quickoffice gives you another way to work with people who haven’t gone Google yet," Google said in a blog post explaining the app. 

To get the free extra storage, simply download Quickoffice and open the app. Users will be prompted to log in to their Google account. The only requirement is that users do this by Thursday.

Google said users will see the free storage added to their account at some point "in the next few weeks." Users can check how much storage they have with Google on this website. By default, Google users get 15 GB of storage on Google Drive.
