Supported file formats for Samsung Cloud

Samsung Cloud home screen displayed on phone

Before you go uploading your entire phone to Samsung Cloud, make sure all your different file types are supported. Otherwise, you may think something is backed up when it's not - and then accidentally delete it forever. But don't worry, Samsung Cloud supports all kinds of files.

Note: Available settings may vary by carrier and software version. Not all countries or carriers support this service.
