OneDrive for Everything in Your Life – SkyDrive Renamed and Improved

SkyDrive has been one of the most useful online services I use in my day-to-day activities both for work and home life. I easily sync my Windows 8 machines with each other through SkyDrive’s built in sync features, every photo I take on my Lumia 928 automatically gets pushed to my SkyDrive account and I use it heavily for storing files for projects I’m currently working on. And now, it’s the same great service but with a new name: “OneDrive for Everything in Your Life”.

Check out the promotional video below, I love the music they chose and the overall emotion and animations look great.

Some may even remember the “Mesh” or “LiveMesh” service from years and years ago – even at that time I loved the idea of cloud storage and file syncing between devices was super important. It simply wasn’t where it needed to be, later on Microsoft improved the service and named it SkyDrive and now, yet again we have a new name. Fortunately, I do think that the new name fits the service better and really describes what the service does in a nutshell.

Why OneDrive? We know that increasingly you will have many devices in your life, but you really want only one place for your most important stuff. One place for all of your photos and videos. One place for all of your documents. One place that is seamlessly connected across all the devices you use. You want OneDrive for everything in your life.
