Skydrive Update Brings Faster Uploads & Timeline

Lately, Microsoft has been paying a lot of attention to their online web-based services.¬†Just some time back¬†Microsoft completed the migration from Hotmail to Outlook. Now, Microsoft has come up with a Skydrive update that would allow its users to make upto 2x faster uploads. That’s not all! Skydrive now features a All Photos View which is kind of like a image timeline.

If you take 10 pictures at a party now and a few hours later you take a few more pictures at your work, Skydrive Timeline view would categorize them and show them separately to you. I think that not only does this make picture browsing easy but it’s fun that how Skydrive automatically categorizes the photos.

Once you have found the photos you were looking for, now you can play them in a Slideshow. If the slideshow isn’t what you need, than maybe you could try out the Filmstrip view.

Let’s say perhaps you would like to be less specific and find photos by the month they were taken in. Skydrive Month view forms kind of a calendar in front of you, so that you can jump to images of a specific month easily.

I personally use cloud storages such as Skydrive, Dropbox & Box a lot. I remember that last time I used Skydrive to upload images from my phone, I found it pretty slow. It’s good that Microsoft is listening closely to customers complaints and acting upon them. There is a interesting Skydrive advertisement after the break. If your interested in reading more about the update, you can head onto the official Windows Blog.
