Today Microsoft announce the global availability of OneDrive. For existing SkyDrive customers, you are all set. Your files are already in the new OneDrive experience—all you have to do is head over to www.OneDrive.com and log in. For those of you just hearing about the service for the first time, OneDrive gives you one place for all of your files, including photos, videos, and documents, and it’s available on the devices you use every day.
Here are three things you can do with your Free OneDrive
- Refer a Friend. With this release, customers who refer friends can now receive up to 5 GB (in 500 MB increments) for each friend who accepts an invitation to OneDrive. So refer a friend, help us with the launch, and get more storage while you do it!
- Get OneDrive for your phone and keep your photos safe. If you have a Windows Phone, of course it works with OneDrive, and your photos are safe. But we bet you didn’t know that OneDrive can back up photos from your iPhone or Android phone too! Just install the new OneDrive client, launch it, and it will ask you if you want to back up your photos. From then on, every photo you take is copied to OneDrive. We’ll even give you 3 GB just for using the camera back-up feature, since we want to help make sure you never lose another photo.
- Use OneDrive + Office for your personal documents and notes. Just like SkyDrive, OneDrive works great with Office and makes storing and sharing documents a snap. OneDrive is built in to Office as the default save location, so you can see the recent documents you were working on and pick up right where you left off, even if you switch devices. With real-time co-authoring in the free online version of Office in OneDrive, you can work on Word, Excel, and PowerPoint documents simultaneously with colleagues or family, see edits as they happen, and rest assured that you always have the latest version. Install OneDrive on your PC or Mac, copy your docs to OneDrive, and use Office 2013. From then on, every doc you write and every note you take is available across your PC, Mac, phone, and tablet.
