Degoo is plenty a client-concentrated backup solution, and primarily cared with images and videos too, it takes advantage some behind-the-scenes artificial intelligence to highlight your best shots, for instance. It’s the kind of function that Google Photos and Apple Photos have also been putting in to their own services, in direct competition with Degoo Cloud.
With only a web app available on the desktop, it provides the apps for Android and iOS that do most of the heavy lifting with Degoo Cloud, and there are even apps for the Samsung and Huawei app saves too (bonus points there). The service isn’t overloaded with functions, however it deserves considering if you’re searching for somewhere to save your images.
You don’t receive any soft of desktop customer or planned computer backups with Degoo Cloud, just the web app as far as Windows and macOS goes, therefore this is by no means a comprehensive company backup solution. You need to upload data and files manually if you’re running on a computer, though Degoo can take files of any kind, up to a size limit of 512MB on the free plan. It’s with the mobile apps that Degoo really begins to shine: here you can upload data automatically, from your camera roll, for instance, as well as documents and audio files if needed. Photos can be automatically uploaded for free, however you’ll need to pay a subscription fee to auto-upload other files like videos.
There’s even an image storage maximizer tool here, so lower-res versions of your photos are saved on your phone to store space, while the full-res versions are stay safely in the cloud. On the web, you receive some simple photo editing tools to play around with, however they feel like more of an afterthought in Degoo which maybe don’t cancel that Photoshop subscription just yet.
In addition, music and videos can be streamed from the internet rather than being downloaded, if you need, so you can make a kind of personal Netflix or Spotify for yourself if it offers enough space in your Degoo account. In terms of playback and sharing choices though, the service is a little on the limited side.
