Microsoft’s SkyDrive is Now OneDrive
Microsoft unveiled the re-branded storage service today, promising OneDrive “builds on everything you know and love about SkyDrive.”
So what’s new? Not all that much, really. MS is now building OneDrive into Windows, Windows Phone, Office, and Xbox. Simply put, it’s now a core piece of MS software, so you’ll be able to easily access your photos, videos, and documents anywhere on all your devices.
Most notably for Xbox One SkyDrive users, Microsoft has tweaked how videos are viewed and shared, making it easier for gamers to get their clips on social media sites like Facebook.
OneDrive also features a very DropBox-like addition: on top of the 7GB of storage MS gives for free, you’ll receive 500MB of additional storage for any friends who accept your OneDrive invite (capped at 5GB).
