Cloud storage firm Mediafire has released its universal Windows 10 app in the Windows store. It supports a host of devices running Windows 8.1 and above including smartphones.

The release comes two years after Mediafire launched its application for Android and iOS. The app features automatic sync and backup of files including the facility to sync files from Microsoft Windows phones to personal computers, as first reported by Nokiapoweruser.

Similar to the Mediafire app on other platforms, the app provides 10 GB free storage, upgradable up to 50 GB, access to files from within the Mediafire app on the device for streaming service for audio and video files or viewing an in-line document and photo. The app also provides a social media connect to share file links on Facebook or Whatsapp, and users can even share the links with a text message.

The universal app supports a broad range of Windows smartphones and PCs running Windows 8.1 and Windows 10 OS.

The Texas-based cloud storage firm which started in 2006, claims to have more than 150 million monthly users and over 12 million daily users. MediaFire provides up to 100 terabytes of data storage space to its premium users for $49.99 every month and over 1,000 GB data to users at $4.99 per month. The storage plan starts with free 10 GB data storage space for registered users.

Mediafire competes with other major cloud storage platforms like Microsoft's OneDrive, Dropbox, Google Drive, Amazon Cloud drive, Apple iCloud, Verdict and Box.
