Microsoft releases a small update to SkyDrive


The SkyDrive Team at Microsoft announced a small update. They announced it not like usual as a blog post, but as a SkyDrive document this time.

Microsoft´s online storage now supports the Open Document Format (ODF). This format is an XML-based file format for spreadsheets, chart, presentations and word processing documents (from Wikipedia).


Until yesterday, we were able to share our SkyDrive uploads on Facebook and LinkedIn. From today on, we are also able to share them on Twitter!

As you can see on the tweet, Microsoft has now also a new short url for sharings via SkyDrive: “”. Also our photos posted via Windows Phone´s people hub have this short url now instead of the primary far too long url.

Last but not least Microsoft screwed up the file size for upload in the browser to 300 MB. This will be helpful if you want to share videos. I will test this in the next few days and report about it.

Microsoft added that they have still some really big things to come soon. I am really curios how Microsoft will improve SkyDrive and what new killer features we will get.
