Microsoft Rolls Out New Features in SkyDrive

It looks like Microsoft is taking its vow to become a “devices and services company” seriously. They announced that this week they’re bringing a number of improvements to their SkyDrive service.

SkyDrive, for those who don’t know, is Microsoft’s cloud-based storage service, similar to Google Drive or Dropbox. It lets you store photos, music, documents, and other files in the cloud and access them from a phone, tablet, or any computer.

Among the updates they’re rolling out this week is the ability to let other people see and edit your files without requiring them to log in. This should make the service more accessible to everyone, regardless of whether or not they have a Microsoft account.

The company is also adding a handful of other new abilities to SkyDrive, like photo manipulation, animated gif support, and accessiblility for high resolution displays.
