Microsoft has announced that its newest free cloud storage service OneDrive is now available officially all over the world. The new cloud service will now operate across devices for Microsoft, iOS and Android.
The Redmond-based company has assured its existing SkyDrive users that their files are already present in the new OneDrive experience, and they need to do is head over to www.OneDrive.com and log in.
Others who are hearing about the service for the first time, the company says, "OneDrive gives you one place for all of your files, including photos, videos, and documents, and it's available across the devices you use every day."
Microsoft states that it has made the service available across every major device and platform, and serves as a great service for photos and videos. "We've built OneDrive into the latest versions of Windows, Windows Phone, Office, and Xbox. You can even make OneDrive your default storage option, so you never have to worry about whether you are saving files to the cloud: They are just there," it states.
Also, the service has been built into Office as the default save location, so users can now see the recent documents they were working on and pick up right where they left off, even if they switch devices.
"With real-time co-authoring using the free online version of Office in OneDrive, you can work on Word, Excel, and PowerPoint documents simultaneously with colleagues or family, and see edits as they happen in the latest version of the document."
Apart from that, in order to celebrate the official launch of OneDrive, the company is also giving 100,000 people 100 GB of free storage for 1 year, and for more details on how to get started, including step by step instructions, just visit www.OneDrive.com.
