Just under three months ago, details emerged of a new MEGA app for Windows 10 devices, built on Microsoft's Universal Windows Platform. The app has been tested in a closed beta in recent weeks, but now, it's available as an open beta for anyone with a Windows 10 PC or phone who wants to try it out.
MEGA describes itself as being "unlike other cloud storage providers, [as] your data is encrypted and decrypted by your client services only and never by us." It offers all users 50GB of free storage space, along with numerous tiers for those wishing to pay for more storage:
PRO LITE subscription: €4.99 (US$4.99) per month or €49.99 (US$49.99) per year gives you 200 GB of storage space and 1 TB of transfer quota per month.
PRO I subscription: €9.99 (US$9.99) per month or €99.99 (US$99.99) per year gives you 1 TB of storage space and 2 TB of transfer quota per month.
PRO II subscription: €19.99 (US$19.99) per month or €199.99 (US$199.99) per year gives you 4 TB of storage space and 8 TB of transfer quota per month.
PRO III subscription: €29.99 (US$29.99) per month or €299.99 (US$299.99) per year gives you 8 TB of storage space and 16 TB of transfer quota per month.
These subscriptions can be purchased and managed within the app.
The Windows Store description for the app says that MEGA "needs to use HTML5 compatible browsers to handle our advanced features. We recommend Mozilla Firefox and Google Chrome." It also notes that mobile browsers are not able to access its cloud storage system yet, so availability of the app will be especially useful for MEGA users on Windows 10 Mobile devices.
