New name for SkyDrive announced

New name for SkyDrive announced

Since a legal battle over the name ‘SkyDrive’ between Microsoft and BSkyB, Microsoft announced that they would globally rename SkyDrive, but did not say what that name would be.

Today Microsoft have launched a video announcing the new name, OneDrive, which fits in with Microsoft’s naming scheme and vision of ‘One Microsoft‘.

This change means that SkyDrive becomes OneDrive, and SkyDrive Pro becomes OneDrive for Business.

You can go to OneDrive.com now to preview the service, but there is no indication of a firm date for the naming switch. The site promises that “OneDrive is everything you love about SkyDrive and more.” What that ‘more’ might entail is not clear as of yet.
