Increase to OneDrive storage plans announced

OneDrive is free online storage I rely on every day to access all my photos, videos, Office documents, and other files anytime I want on any of my Windows devices. It’s built into Windows 8.1 and Windows Phone 8.1. I use OneDrive to help protect my files if something happens to any of my devices. For example, on my Windows Phone my camera roll automatically saves any photos I take to OneDrive. And I also use OneDrive to collaborate with others. My fiancée and I have a shared OneNote notebook where we collaborate on wedding stuff.


Today, the OneDrive Team has announced increases to their OneDrive storage plans. OneDrive will now come with 15GB of free online storage – up from 7GB previously. For OneDrive’s paid plans if you need additional online storage, they are dropping storage prices by over 70%. And finally, all Office 365 subscriptions will come with 1TB of online storage. For all the details on the changes to OneDrive’s storage plans – see this blog post from Omar Shahine on the OneDrive Blog.
