Microsoft is making OneDrive, its rebranded SkyDrive cloud storage service, available globally as of February 19.
Microsoft officials announced the new branding for its cloud storage service, formerly known as SkyDrive, in late January. Microsoft was obliged to change the name of the service after a loss of a trademark battle with British Sky Broadcasting Group over the “Sky” name.
Existing SkyDrive customers don’t have to do anything to move to OneDrive; their files are already in OneDrive and can be accessed by logging into www.onedrive.com with their existing SkyDrive credentials. Updated OneDrive apps for Windows Phone, Android phones and iPhones are available for download in their respective stores.
