Microsoft Turns On OneDrive

Microsoft just launched the renamed and updated SkyDrive, the new OneDrive service. OneDrive is available to existing as well as for the new users. The new OneDrive service launches with bonus storage and a new Android app.

The company has updated its Android app with automatic camera backups, so that any photo you click on your device, will be automatically sent to OneDrive. You can even select the OneDrive upload for WiFi, but be sure to not exceed your monthly data cap.

Other changes to the app includes improved support for working with the Office Mobile for Android and OneNote, along with editing Office documents, larger thumbnails and nicer photo views. General bug fixes and performance improvements have also been included.

Apart from this, the company also introduced the monthly storage plans, starting at $4.49 a month for 50GB and going up to $11.49 a month for 200GB.

That’s not all, here are the new features that has been included in OneDrive:

  • Real-time co-editing
  • Easier video sharing and viewing
  • New ways to earn and buy additional storage
  • Earn an extra 3 GB of storage when you activate the camera roll back-up to save photos automatically

To celebrate the re-titling of SkyDrive to OneDrive, Microsoft is also providing a nice boost in the storage space to its 100,000 users. For that you may want to follow the official OneDrive account on Twitter. Microsoft will be giving out freebies today, as high as 100GB free storage.
