Last week, we unveiled more features coming with Windows 10 including how you can use Cortana to search your OneDrive, how you will be able to have your music available through Xbox Music, and how OneDrive will work with the all-new Photos app. Today, I’m eager to build upon what we demoed in Windows 10 and announce a number of updates centered on making your OneDrive photo experience richer and smarter. Key updates coming over the next couple of weeks include: adding the ability for customers to curate photos from their phone, desktop, and inbox quickly and simply; a new feature that allows you to view, manage, and share photos with Albums; and finally, through a partnership with Bing, customers can now search for their files and photos in a new and exciting way!

We want OneDrive to be the very best way for people to store and share files, photos, and documents across life and work. Over the past year we’ve seen a massive increase in OneDrive use for people who use Windows and Office both at home and work.
