Microsoft SkyDrive Becomes OneDrive today, Features Camera Backup on Android
Microsoft not only rebranded SkyDrive to OneDrive today, but also gave it a couple of new features, available in its Android iteration for example. OneDrive has been renamed like this after some other company sued Microsoft and won the trademark to SkyDrive.
Those of you (few, because come on, Dropbox is much better) who use the service should know that the transition to OneDrive will be seamless. The update and name change will happen in the background, so there’s no need to uninstall the app. It will silently update and in case it doesn’t you’ll see the update available in the Play Store.
Novelties made available here include the ability to share and view videos just as you do with photos, automatic camera roll backup for Android and real time cooperation when working with Office Web apps. The cloud storage is still 7 GB of free, but you can earn 3 GB more if you use the camera backup feature. As a bonus, you receive 500 MB of storage per friend you refer to the service.
Microsoft is also giving away 100,000 users 100 GB of free storage these days.
