WD My Cloud OS 1.5 Released; App Fetches 4M Downloads

Western Digital is known for their resilient hard drives that are found in many of today’s desktop computers and servers. Western Digital’s My Cloud product is beginning to carve out its own niche within Western Digital’s personal cloud vertical. Western Digital’s My Cloud app allows users to access files that are stored on an external hard drive that is connected to your desktop PC using a secured gateway. This private cloud of sorts has been a resounding hit given the fact that iOS and Google Play downloads have collectively exceeded 4 million at this point.

Western Digital has just announced that they have released the 1.5 version of their My Cloud product.

Jim Welsh is the Executive Vice President at Western Digital Content Solutions. Welsh is quoted as saying, “WD recognizes the overwhelming task that consumers face in organizing and controlling all of the music, movies, photos and other digital files we collect across our various computers and mobile devices.” Welsh adds, “The more than four million downloads of our WD My Cloud app offerings to date show our software provides tremendous value to our customers, and we are committed to continuing the mission of WD My Cloud OS to simplify the digital chaos we all face with the growing amount of digital content in our lives.”

Western Digital has certainly upped the ante when it comes the My Cloud product line up. Back in April, it was previously written about My Cloud users who were reporting difficulties when trying to reach the service. All of those concerns seem to be addressed as Western Digital has not had any service interruptions since. Many My Cloud users report that the service has been somewhat bulletproof since WD implemented the fix.
