As many already know, Microsoft’s SkyDrive is the company’s cloud-based storage service. We use it on our Windows Phone to back-up photos, access documents and other files we keep in the cloud.
Today, Microsoft has announced that they are retiring the SkyDrive branding for this cloud storage and renaming things OneDrive. The thinking behind the name is that while you have many devices in your life, you only want one place to store your documents, images, videos and other files.
Microsoft announced back in July of the impending name change due to litigation against them by British Sky Broadcasting Group (BSkyB), who successfully claimed that SkyDrive infringed on the “Sky” trademark.
Current SkyDrive and SkyDrive Pro customers will not see any interruptions in service as the name change begins to roll out. No date was given as to when the transition will begin other than “expect to be able to experience the new OneDrive soon”.
As we learn more about this change, we’ll surely pass it on.
