Anyone who signed up for the beta of SkyDrive, which lacked many features and has been around for over three years, will still be able to get 25GB (as before), with the links provided at the end of this article. Maximum file size is now 2GB, up from 700MB, a welcome change.
The new update adds the bonus ability to create and edit Microsoft Office documents right in the Web interface on Windows or Macs. No app installation is required.
SkyDrive for the Windows desktop (preview available now). View and manage your personal SkyDrive directly from Windows Explorer on Windows 8, Windows 7, and Windows Vista with this new preview app available in 106 languages worldwide.
Fetching files through SkyDrive.com. Easily access, browse, and stream files from a remote PC running the preview app to just about anywhere by simply fetching them via SkyDrive.com.
SkyDrive storage updates. A new, more flexible approach to personal cloud storage that allows power users to get additional paid storage as their needs grow.
SkyDrive for other devices. We've updated the SkyDrive apps on Windows Phone and iOS devices, bringing better management features and sharing options to those devices. We're also releasing a new preview client for Mac OS X Lion, letting you manage your SkyDrive right from the Finder.
