Dropbox adds an additional terabyte to Professional and 2TB to Business Standard cloud storage plans at no additional cost.

Dropbox today announced that it is increasing the amount of storage space available to many of its paid subscribers for no additional charge.

Starting today, Dropbox Professional accounts get 2TB of storage space, while Business Standard teams have access to 3TB of shared storage space.
According to Dropbox, its new storage limits give customers more freedom to free up phone and hard drive space, share large files, and work with Dropbox's Smart Syncing features.

All new Professional and Business Standard accounts include the upgraded storage today, while storage for existing accounts will be upgraded in the coming weeks.

Dropbox is not increasing storage space available for free tiers or its Plus accounts. Free storage space remains limited to 2GB, while Plus subscribers will continue to have 1TB of storage space.

Dropbox Professional is priced at $19.99 per month or $16.58 when paying yearly. Dropbox Business is priced at $15 per month per user with a minimum of three users, but pricing drops to $12.50 per user when billed yearly.

Notably, the Dropbox terabyte increase occurs months after the Google One announcement in which the company's new storage plans promoted a deal that included 2TBs for $20 per month.

The Dropbox Pro plan will still cost $20 per month with the doubled space. Upgraded Dropbox Pro plans have all the same features like file recovery, link sharing, and smart sync. The regular Plus plan for $10 per month remains at 1TB.

Dropbox will include the expanded storage in new accounts immediately. Existing accounts will migrate to the larger storage quota, however Dropbox says that won't be complete for several weeks
