Last week, Microsoft announced the global release of OneDrive, a free cloud storage service. Formerly known as SkyDrive, OneDrive tries to make it as easy as possible to get all of your digital content – photos, videos and documents – in one place and accessible across any devices, at home or work.

OneDrive is available for every major device and platform. It’s built into the latest versions of Windows, Windows Phone, Office and Xbox. If you use an iPhone or Android phone, an iPad, Android tablet, or Mac, OneDrive supports those too.

This release also includes several new capabilities, including automatic camera backup for Android and the ability to share and view videos just as easily as photos.
