Microsoft Rolls officially out OneDrive, comes with up to 15 GB of free Cloud Storage

Following the trademark dispute between Microsoft’s cloud storage SkyDrive and the British Sky Broadcasting Group (BSkyB), the former was forced to change the name of the cloud service to OneDrive. Microsoft’s renamed cloud service officially rolled out today, and we have details about it.

OneDrive

The name change was announced by Microsoft by the end of January through blog.OneDrive.com. And early this morning, Microsoft started sending out an e-mail announcement that the all new OneDrive has officially rolled out.

The new OneDrive pretty much comes with all the features everyone enjoyed with SkyDrive. The cloud service comes with a free 7 GB worth of storage that can be increased to an additional 5 GB through a referral system. One a friend of yours accepts the invitation to SkyDrive, the user receives an additional 500 MB as an increment, to a maximum total of 5 GB.

Additionally, users who would enable the Automatic Camera Back-up feature gets another additional 3 GB worth of free storage. Currently, this feature is available only for Android OneDrive users.

Microsoft’s OneDrive support’s multi-platfroms across different devices such as Windows, Windows Phone, Microsoft Office, Android, Mac OS, iOS and even on the Xbox gaming console.

Finally, there’s also a new annual pricing scheme for those who needs more storage options: Additional 50 GB for $25, 100 GB for $50 and 200 GB for $100.
