OneDrive is Now Available Worldwide: Free Cloud Storage for Microsoft, iOS, and Android Devices

Today we are thrilled to announce the global availability of OneDrive. For our existing SkyDrive customers, you are all set; your files are ready in the new OneDrive experience. All you have to do is head over to www.OneDrive.com and log in. For those of you hearing about the service for the first time, OneDrive gives you one place for all of your files, including photos, videos, and documents, and it’s available across the devices you use every day.

 

 

When we announced the new name OneDrive, we noted how it is much more aligned with our vision for the future. Our goal is to make it as easy as possible for you to get all of your favorite stuff in one place—one place that is accessible via all of the devices you use every day, at home and at work. Because let’s face it, until now, cloud storage services have been pretty hard to use, and the vast majority of us still have our stuff spread out everywhere. In fact, according to a recent poll*, at least 77% of people who are familiar with the cloud still have content stored on a device that is not backed up elsewhere.

 

We want to change that.

 

As part of that goal, we’re doing more than just changing the name with today’s release: We’re rolling out several new capabilities, including automatic camera backup for Android and the ability to share and view videos just as easily as photos. We’ve also added new ways for you to earn more storage—on top of the 7 GB we already give you for free. Customers who refer friends can now receive up to 5 GB (in 500 MB increments) for each friend who accepts an invitation to OneDrive, and we’ll even give you 3 GB just for using the camera backup feature, since we want to help make sure you never lose another photo. There’s even a new monthly payment plan, if you’d like a little more flexibility in how you use your storage.

 

Of course, OneDrive also builds on everything you know and loved about SkyDrive.

 

Available across every major device and platform

We’ve built OneDrive into the latest versions of Windows, Windows Phone, Office, and Xbox. You can even make OneDrive your default storage option, so you never have to worry about whether you are saving files to the cloud: They are just there. If you happen to carry an iPhone or Android phone, or use an iPad, Android tablet, Windows device, or a Mac—OneDrive is available there, too.

 

OneDrive Microsoft Collection

 

The best way to store, view, and share photos and videos

The deep integration with so many of the products you already use means you never have to worry about manually saving your photos and videos. And no more trying to sort out what video format to use—it just works. Plus, Start screen integration with Windows 8.1, and even Xbox slide shows, means there are countless ways your favorite photos and those photos shared with you come to life. And with OneDrive, you can share photos or videos directly to Facebook or via email with one click. You can even record and share gameplay from your Xbox One.

 

Perfect for sharing documents

OneDrive is built in to Office as the default save location, so you can see the recent documents you were working on and pick up right where you left off, even if you switch devices. With real-time co-authoring using the free online version of Office in OneDrive, you can work on Word, Excel, and PowerPoint documents simultaneously with colleagues or family, and see edits as they happen in the latest version of the document.

 

Built for businesses, too

With OneDrive for Business, companies can give their employees the ability to store, sync, and collaborate on files across multiple devices with ease, manageability, and security. Not only does OneDrive for Business deliver an intuitive experience for employees, allowing them to seamlessly collaborate on documents right from within Office, but it is also backed with enterprise-grade content management, compliance, and administrative controls. Stay tuned for more about OneDrive for Business at the upcoming SharePoint Conference.

 

To celebrate the official launch of OneDrive, today we will also give 100,000 people 100 GB of free storage for 1 year. That’s 10 PB of free storage—enough storage space for a photo of everyone on the planet. If you want to be one of those 100,000, keep an eye on @OneDrive for clues.

 

We are excited to share OneDrive with you today, and look forward to hearing what you think. For more details on how to get started, including step by step instructions, just visit www.OneDrive.com.

    • SuedButts, February 19, 2014 at 3:57 pm says:

      LOL! It’s something they had to do because they were sued by some other company of the same name (SkyDrive). So now they have nothing else to do except glorify their lost face.

      • What's in a name, February 19, 2014 at 4:17 pm says:

        Sued by BSkyB because their customers might mistake SkyDrive as one of their services, dumb Brits. But the re-brand fits their other branding initiatives and gives us free space so… whatever

        • John Hutchingson, September 13, 2014 at 3:58 pm says:

          Oi, dont call us british dumb.

          Most of us are quite intelligent and notice that skydrive has a different logo/style than BSkyB.

  6. Ady, February 19, 2014 at 9:07 am says:

    That’s all good. But please seriously take a look at first 50 comments on Google Play page for OneDrive app https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.microsoft.skydrive. People have lots of complains regarding difficulties they are facing in uploading photos and lack of re-upload failed files and lack of multi-select support.

    Its being a while these complains are unattended. Please have a stab on those issues and give Android folks something to like from Microsoft. This is a good opportunity, if you know what I am saying!

    • JD, February 19, 2014 at 10:30 am says:

      Opportunity for them to give free space. The Android crowd isn’t switching to Windows based phones or tablets and certainly not based on what OneDrive does.

      • Manishankar, February 26, 2014 at 6:05 am says:

        I totally agree to the above points

    • JP, March 3, 2014 at 7:58 pm says:

      And not only that but:

      “Android beat Apple in tablet sales last year — Gartner”
      http://news.cnet.com/8301-1035_3-57619796-94/android-beat-apple-in-tablet-sales-last-year-gartner/

      I’d love to see MS be successful here. They just have to stop acting like they’re going to shift the world to their devices with these products that are arguably “young” (see comparison of Skydrive Pro to Dropbox for Business, it’s not even funny).

      If they aren’t willing to have an intern login to Google Play and at least triage/answer comments, and make some accommodations it just screams “We’re the old Microsoft and we don’t care about your feedback”. They do care, they just don’t act like it.

    If the sharing of documents is integrated into windows phone, ios app, android app and windows explorer on win 7,8,8.1, it will indeed be brilliant. Many people using win rt and windows have been waiting 18 months for this.

  16. Rob, February 19, 2014 at 9:59 am says:

    Just added my free 20g promo :) what with free 7gb, 20gb bfrom Nokia Lumia 920 and 200gb from Surface 2, I now have around 250gb free Sky/Onedrive.
    I also use to remotely get my pc files at work with the pc app so no longer need logmein.
    Seen many negative comments on Apple App store which is typical. Compared to the rotten Apple tied in offerings this is miles ahead.

    • gigaplex, February 20, 2014 at 2:48 am says:

      Windows 8.1 removed that remote fetch feature.

  18. James Makumbi, February 19, 2014 at 10:04 am says:

    Hey,
    The logos on the site when you long in have not changed. WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU PEOPLE? I thought this was a “Rebrand”? Now you want me to download ANOTHER android app instead of just upgrading the existing one?
    First you screwed me on the extra space because I was one of the earliest users of skydrive and you only offered the 7gb to people who signed on after the promotion began now you want me to download another app and probably you will screw me over the 3gb.
    The dropbox app has been syncing camera rolls for years! Get this right on all platforms and maybe I will abandon dropbox.

    • Aldo Velasco, February 19, 2014 at 12:57 pm says:

      When they changed the storage to 7gb you could claim the original 25 lifetime free GB.

    Io non vedo i 20 gb devono ancora attivare lo spazio gratuito !

  23. Arlyn Culwick, February 19, 2014 at 10:32 am says:

    My 20GB code didn’t work, and then SkyDrive support says that there is no such thing as a 20GB code being sent to OneDrive early adopters.

    And yet I see two commenters here have already got their extra 20GB.

    Please inform your support people that you’re emailing people 20GB codes.

    • AJ, February 21, 2014 at 5:24 am says:

      the code isn’t for OneDrive early adopters. it’s for those who had been subscribed to some newsletter or something about OneDrive before release. and I think then that they might’ve had a limited time frame to redeem that in. so not support’s fault, the people talking about the 20gb they got haven’t been clear as to why they got it. hence the confusion from people wanting the extra storage and trying to get it too

  24. Billy, February 19, 2014 at 11:30 am says:

    yes Arlyn Culwick, the same happened to me and all my family :(

  25. Errol, February 19, 2014 at 11:40 am says:

    One drive camera upload works perfect. I use Copy at the moment and i have to decide what i will use in the future.

  26. CloudExpert, February 19, 2014 at 11:46 am says:

    If you really want a referral program that works, use Copy which offers 15GB on joining up and 5GB bonus for each referral. It is available on ios, android and windows desktop. It is also planning to allow WebDAV which would enable you to map it as a network drive.

    • Errol, February 19, 2014 at 11:52 am says:

      I use Copy myself….great cloud program.

    • Daniel Harris, February 21, 2014 at 4:26 pm says:

      We use Copy in my company and it’s great for business, but I love OneDrive (long time SkyDrive user) for my personal files, photos etc.

  28. Neycker, February 19, 2014 at 11:53 am says:

    I just saw the picture in the login section and it has a surface(cool), a galaxy phone and an iphone.
    Where the **** is a windows phone?? I mean comen on, Onedrive is a Microsoft service. I know you are different team but you guys must support each other! Small things like advertising your own brands is a Must for a company like Microsoft.

    Still I’m happy with this service and it will definitely become my cloud storage solution once I requiere more storage. Keep up the good work Onedrive team.

        I just went to the main page and got a dialog that I can’t get the bonus space because I’m not a new account. If that also pertains to the camera roll bonus, then I’ll definitely be deleting what I just uploaded, as it has taken up a lot of my already skimpy remaining storage.

        • prb123@pbell.net, February 19, 2014 at 3:59 pm says:

          That’s definitely NOT what the message said on my Android phone when I updated to One Drive. Didn’t get my 3GB either. When I click on “learn more” on my PC in “manage storage”, screen goes blank. Looks like a troubled rollout to me.

    Not impressed yet. Playing an mp4 and changing the resolution resulted in an error. I love the idea, but it is too expensive still. Especially, if one brings photo archives online, shoots for Photosynths. To work as a backup for me, just documents, photos and my own video clips, I would need 500GB now. Digitizing my archives and shooting a lot more for Photosynth, I would expect needing 1TB soon.

    • Harry, February 19, 2014 at 3:17 pm says:

      It does not exist in the store and maybe they should update it now via Windows Update but updates from Windows Update are meant to only come on the second Tuesday of the month unless it’s a very important security update.

    I just downloaded the desktop onedrive app for my window 7, and the setup was still skydrive.
    Is this because MS has not changed the link yet or there will be no onedrive app for window 7 ?

    • Harry, February 19, 2014 at 3:19 pm says:

      Windows 8.1 has not yet been updated, it takes time to update across all the products Microsoft has, but as long as the phone apps and website are up to date you can get 8GB of extra free storage, that’s the most important part at the moment.

      • Tonion Ng, February 19, 2014 at 4:10 pm says:

        Thanks, Harry :D.
        I turned on the auto upload setting in picture hub, then I take a picture with my phone (wp7). The picture was uploaded to my onedrive a/c, but my a/c still have only 7Gb data. Did I do anything wrong ?

        • Harry, February 19, 2014 at 6:25 pm says:

          Have you updated and visited the app?
          I had auto upload turned on and used it for a while (WP8), the only thing I did today was update the app and start it. When I went to settings > account it said 28GB. Same when I did it for someone else, I just updated the app, started it and when viewing the account under settings it went from 7GB to 10GB.

  65. Harry, February 19, 2014 at 3:27 pm says:

    It’s nice with the extra storage, what would be great now is that you give away a bit more space, 1GB free for life for “loyal” Microsoft customers, like 1GB for those who have connected their Microsoft account to a Windows 8(.1) device, 1GB for those who use a Windows Phone and 1GB for Xbox users.

    Camera backup does not seem to work for my Android device (LG G2), it says all photos have been backed up not none are…. it might be looking in the wrong folder.

    • Harry, February 19, 2014 at 6:28 pm says:

      You get to keep all you files and storage space but is able to get up to 8GB more, for the good old users it means they may get 33GB of free storage. The same service improved and rebranded.

  71. Rodolfo, February 19, 2014 at 4:03 pm says:

    100 Gb for one year? what about after, you have to paid anyway. Box app give 50 Gb for free, for ever….

    • Harry, February 19, 2014 at 6:45 pm says:

      50GB from Box is just a promotion, they offer only 10GB by default, matched by Microsoft when you use auto upload and Microsoft is better with up to 15GB.

      Personally I have 50GB Box and 28,5GB OneDrive, the worst part with Box is that they have a 250MB limit to file size for free users, OneDrive file size limit is 2GB as far as I know.

    What about syncing of Shared Folders to the file system? There are a whole lot of us that have been waiting years now for this, and nothing. Or perhaps this is pretty much just a “name change” release and we shouldn’t have been expecting long-missing, important features?

    • Harry, February 19, 2014 at 6:40 pm says:

      You must not have paid attention to think that this is just a name change, with up to 8GB extra free storage, upload for android better video and more but for the important proper sharing:

      “However, Logan also told Neowin that today’s OneDrive launch will not include co-owner file support, as previously rumored. While Logan would not give any specifics to us during our brief chat, it’s more than likely that the OneDrive team has more features in the works that will be added to the service in the coming months.”

        I expect that after rebranding the “skydrive” name will disapper as well the “skydrive.live.com” subdomain’s name also will vanish. What makes me wonder is whether the links pointed to “skydrive.live.com” will be resolved in the future.

        • GW, February 19, 2014 at 7:00 pm says:

          Harry, something went wrong – this is my anawer to your post a little above. ;)

        • Harry, February 19, 2014 at 11:38 pm says:

          For whether the links pointing to skydrive.live.com will be resolved in the future. I would expect so, I looked at some old email that shared files and notebooks on SkyDrive and they all use the skydrive subdomain, and I don’t think it will “vanish” for several reasons, firstly it’s just a subdomain, even if they don’t use skydrive.com they will have the main domain live.com, second hotmail.com directs me to mail.live.com and last I still have a couple of OneNote notebooks that are on the domain office.live.com from the days when I used Office Live Workspace and that was discontinued about four years ago. Microsoft owns the rights to so many domain names and keeping a few for the discontinued services (especially subdomain) is something that they do and I see no reason why they should not continue to do so to keep everything working smoothly, it’s a low price to pay for a better user experience.

  97. TommyK, February 20, 2014 at 1:41 am says:

    Where can I find details on what exactly onedrive is doing during sync, what happens when I delete files locally, move files that are backed-up, rename files that are backed-up, delete files from onedrive-what happens? how does everything work, exactly? Don’t refer me to another youtube promo video. Thanks.

    • DAS1951, February 20, 2014 at 6:48 pm says:

      TommyK, regarding your question/s about synchronisation behaviour, I can report some experience of my use of SkyDrive (OneDrive) since last summer, when I acquired a Windows Phone 8. Before that I only ‘used’ SkyDrive to see what it looks like.

      I have not installed any app, choosing to sync via the mobile internet or WiFi.

      Your question is a good one but the answer/s should be in a Help section, and this is not the thread to ask about such things.

      As regards image/photo backup it acts slightly unexpectedly compared to a true backup service on the one hand or a two-way sync service as the MS Office section seems to have become (and which Google Drive has had since about 2012, the date when it was introduced) on the other.

      Photos taken on the camera phone are sent to SkyDrive/OneDrive and stay there until deleted directly. Deleting or removing images from the phone does not delete the images in the cloud, and deleting/removing from the cloud does not affect the images on the phone.

      This is not dissimilar to Google Docs (not GDrive) and I think Android phone users can auto-backup pictures via the mobile network or WiFi.

      However, if it becomes true 2-way synching you will have all sorts of effects like the ones you have mentioned, plus some potentially unexpected ones.

      If so, the OneDrive, like Google Drive, is *not* a place for safe backup. To avoid problems you need to go to a dedicated backup service with *no* 2-way sync’ing and *no* sharing.

      • DAS1951, February 20, 2014 at 7:38 pm says:

        PS. I have been using OneNote 2010 and sync’ing it across my computer (Vista) and phone (WP8) via (what is now) OneDrive and there you see true 2-way sync’ing.

        Amend or delete anything in one place, and the action is replicated everywhere else.

  98. Anuwat, February 20, 2014 at 2:04 am says:

    Still the same,
    Windows 8.1 you still are forcing people to sign-in PC with microsoft account thing before can use OneDrive.
    Please change this policy. I want to use OneDrive but I DO NOT WANT to sign-in PC with Microsoft account

    I will stick with DropBox as long as Microsoft account requirement on Win8.1 is lifted.

    • Tony, March 7, 2014 at 8:36 pm says:

      They are giving you a free service with free storage & you don’t want to log in to get it. I can not believe the stupidity of some people that walk the planet ………Go boil your head Anuwat see if it improves it’s function….

    • Hollowman, March 31, 2014 at 9:18 pm says:

      I have the same problem. It’s not about “not wanting to log in”, it’s about being forced to use my personal hotmail account, or some other special made-up account, to use the feature at work.

      We have field technicians that I want to be able to share office files with on thier phones. The problem with Dropbox is that it doesn’t (yet) allow for user permissions when sharing a folder (and a link is useless because you can’t browse). Skydrive/Onedrive allows us to control write/delete permissions, but won’t let you sign up with a corporate email account. This forces us to create (and hence, manage) numerous dummy Microsoft email accounts.

      Would love to use (and pay for a corporate level account), but the necessity for a Microsoft account seems petty. Big companies will go elsewhere.

    The camera roll bonus is not working for many people and Microsoft support is saying that its engineers are aware of it via their chat room. I think some form of official statement or explanation would be welcome by many. Any ETA on when this will be fixed would also be welcome.

    • no-named, February 20, 2014 at 12:15 pm says:

      Well at least they are looking into it, just uneasy that they “rolled” this out but it has issues with others… FYI gave a buddy that has Windows Phone Lumia 1020 and he had been saving all this photos to camera roll, so when he told me about it I did it and still waiting for 3GB but he got his…maybe something tied to were you doing it before the roll out .. unsure… still waiting..

      • CloudExpert, February 22, 2014 at 7:28 am says:

        I finally got my 3GB camera bonus. It must be that it takes a while to activate and if that is the case, Microsoft should clarify this to avoid disgruntled users and manage expections.

        On a positive note, I am loving the new collaborative features of Onedrive. What I would like to see next is the ability to turn off download when sharing a public link to a file and also the possibility to mount my Onedrive as a network drive. I would like to be able to save my files directly to Onedrive without having to create a copy on my local disk and then Sync to the cloud. I can saveoffice douments directly to Onedrive but not pdf, pictures and other documents. I am still on Windows 7 – so I don’t know whether you can do this on Windows 8.1.

      I have never seen 27GB free. I know old users have 25GB and new users have 7Gb but this 27GB puzzles me. Camera bonus and referral would appear on a different line. Anyone see something like this before?
      I would also like to think that new users who have been referred can get a max of 15.5GB free. The initial 7GB + 3GB for cameral roll + 5GB for referral and 0.5GB for accepting a referral. So the person you referred could end up with 0.5 GB more than you when it comes to free permanent storage space. What do people think?

  111. osm, February 20, 2014 at 11:15 am says:

    I really do want to use OneDrive, but a couple of things keep me using Dropbox.

    1. Inability to revert back to previous versions of any file type (in OneDrive this is only possible for Microsoft Office files). Dropbox supports version history for all file types.

    2. When sharing a file, OneDrive reveals the full path to that file within my OneDrive in the information sidebar. Dropbox does not reveal this information.

    3. OneDrive does not put icon overlays on files/folders in Explorer that summarises sync status, at least in WIndows 8.1. Dropbox does. This is great for at-a-glance information on what files/folders are up to date in terms of sync status.

    Please address these issues and I will switch to OneDrive.

    Thanks for the article.
    I have a couple of quick, simple suggestions:
    1) On the web interface, allow to default show folder layout, NOT a collage of pictures from onedrive folders. I can’t use skydrive for my company if private/sensitive client photos & graphs show up everytime we log into onedrive.com!

    2) On the android interface, create a persistent link once a document has been downloaded locally. Give us an option to select a locally-downloaded document from the onedrive app, not from using a file manager system.

    These should be pretty basic to implement and would improve the onedrive experience.

    I cannot download any file from OneDrive when using android phone’s browser, I have tried different browsers but still unsuccessful.

  143. Nate, February 26, 2014 at 2:56 pm says:

    I feel like I have a love-hate relationship with this service. At this point the only reason I’m considering keeping a Microsoft Account is because they’ve made it to where your PC is gimped to **** without it (Windows 8.1), but ordering Windows 7 Recovery DVDs from HP may be able to remedy that for me.

    The iOS App is designed in such a ******** fashion. I just finished editing a ton of video (sports analysis, etc.) and now I have to sign up for Dropbox just to get it onto my phone (unless I install iTunes and all of its bloat?). The OneDrive iOS app does not allow you to add pictures or Videos from your OneDrive to your iPhone’s Camera Roll, making it 100% worthless as a cloud storage solution. Basically, your once your files are in there you basically cannot do what you want with them, only What Microsoft wants you to do (and they want you to only send links so that more people can go to their website).

    Have fun trying to upload a file in OneDrive to Facebook, or Flickr, or to iCloud (Shared Streams). Not going to happen. You can go through iMovie, but that’s clunky as ****.

    I’m going to create a Dropbox account for this and move my files over. This is not worth the headache.

  147. Bruno Vieira, March 1, 2014 at 1:23 pm says:

    Onedrive is not perfect and far from that…Onedrive has the most common problem in sync programs…you can´t sync any folder without move it into OneDrive folder. They have an extension for that, but it duplicates the folder. So, Microsoft needs to think more in this problem, that everyone want to be resolved. Alternative is Cubby, that works very good, 5GB of free space and can sync the folder you want without move it, just right click and sync.

    This is a real SCAM

    First of all: SHARING, you’re using this term as if it was so wasy to use skydrive’s cloud as it is in google and it’s not. There’s no XML/JSON feed for galleries which is a must for any blog/website.

    So being able to share in facebook is not a “SUPER MEGA SHARING” experience.

    Google has put up a huge effort with all the API’s they’ve built so we can put images/galleries and other content in any place, not just facebook or a mail, that’s really useless.

    So no, there’s no way I’m leaving Google+ for this false advertisement technique. let me know when you really get big, just as google, and then we’ll talk ’bout subscriptions and paid services.

    I have 2 brand new devices (PC and Laptop) both running Widows 8.1 (upgrades from Windows 8.0).
    Issue:
    The Office Account page qualifies running Windows 8.1 on both, with Office 365 and shared service for “Onedrive”.
    The user profile and Windows presentation on the laptop still reflects “Skydrive” and certainly updates my documents entered / amended and filed from that device (excel / word / .pdf / photos / music etc etc) and I have no issue with the additional cloud capacity purchased; however the user profile and Windows presentation on the PC reflects “Onedrive” and DOES not show / display any new / amended material that has been entered on “Skydrive”.

    What is resolution to this enigma, as I now wish to use external devices in other office locations with my Account Profile on not from my laptop / android is there anyone out there who have encountered this issue?

    On Android, OneDrive needs to be updated to support Android’s Storage Access Framework so that we can Open or Attach from other applications using the unified application UI. This is important, IMO. It really ****** me off to see Apple talk about iCloud Drive and see OneDrive listed there, when the Android app still hasn’t been updated to support this on Android. I’m really close to switching everything over to Google Drive and downgrading back to Windows 7. This is getting ridiculous.

    Keep your apps updated. It’s bad form to not implement something this fundamental and important to the consistency of user experience on Android in a cloud storage app from a major software developer like Microsoft…

    Many posters have patted themselves on the back at their “good fortune” in getting even more space for free, yet these posters are also oblivious as to why these offers exist.

    Each one of you is the same as the Hansel and Gretel kids who are fed and fed and fed completely unaware as to WHY.

    Business users should be especially vigilant as to where their information is stored. The IP of the data is being freely given away and all I can see here, (except for a few) are suckers lining up for their next butt pounding. You people who call yourself informed, yet line up for this **** should be ashamed.

    And switch to a Windows phone? Would you like a polio blanket with that as well? The windows phone is the single largest pile of **** made, next to Windows 8. Again, you plebs will flock to the MS teat like ill informed children that you so plainly illustrate you are.

    I received 20GB/year free by subscribing onedrive newsletter before it launched~ You’re just not interest in Onedrive or else you would go visit the Onedrive website before it was released. Just unlucky. User Lumia 925 here, agree with you that MSFT did not offer us Lumians free storage on its launch day.
