If you own a Galaxy Note 10 or Note 10+ and happen to be running the Android 10 beta, you’re about to get some Microsoft treats. As noted by SamMobile, a Microsoft OneDrive integration is now rolling out to these devices, allowing users to directly sync photos from the Samsung Gallery app.

This is all part of Samsung’s partnership with Microsoft and can be trigged by heading to the Galaxy Settings app. Once a Microsoft OneDrive account is used as a backup solution, all existing content from a Samsung Cloud account will be moved to OneDrive, except for items in the Recycle Bin. All photos on the device will also be synced to OneDrive, without the need for the dedicated OneDrive app.

It’s important to note that by choosing OneDrive as a backup option, you no longer can go back to Samsung Cloud. Microsoft will instead give you the same amount of space left in your Samsung Cloud account in OneDrive, but only for one year. Samsung will also refund you for any Samsung Cloud storage plans.
