Microsoft Updates SkyDrive Again


Microsoft has been busy shoring up its SkyDrive service in anticipation of its greater use courtesy of Windows 8 integration, and while this week’s update isn’t major, it’s still an interesting step forward.

More specifically, the SkyDrive team notes the following changes in this update:

OpenDocument support. In addition to supporting Microsoft Office document types, SkyDrive now supports OpenDocument as well.

Share to Twitter. You can now share to Twitter, in addition to email and Facebook sharing.

Bigger uploads. SkyDrive now supports 300 MB file uploads from a web browser.

Short URL support. You can use the new URL shortener to help keep within the Twitter character limit when you share via that service.
