Microsoft was forced to rename SkyDrive into OneDrive, which, we have to agree, isn’t such a bad name, after all. It basically has the same name as OneNote. Now, the official Windows 8 App ‘OneDrive for Business’ has landed in the Windows Store.
For those who aren’t aware of this, the new ‘OneDrive for Business’ app for Windows 8 and Windows 8.1 users has been formerly known as SkyDrive Pro. So, if you are acquainted with the previous service, then most of its features won’t be new for you. You still have to sign in with your Office 365 or SharePoint online account to be able to use it. However, it does bring some updates such as the ability to view photos inside the app, to upload folders and all files, to open and save files from other applications; along with other bug fixes.
One Drive for Business Replaces SkyDrive Pro
Easily view and share your files in a modern, touch-friendly Windows 8 experience. Upload your documents and access them across all of your devices. You will get all of the security and tools that SharePoint offers to help you be more productive at work. If you are not sure whether you have a OneDrive for Business site speak with your organization admin or IT department. You should be able to access the account in the browser using your Organizational ID. This is not the same thing as your OneDrive. OneDrive for Business is for your work files while OneDrive is for all of your personal files.
By using the official One Drive for Business app for Windows 8 and Windows 8.1 users, you will be able to browse through all of your OneDrive for Business files, open the most recently used ones and share them with your colleagues. Of course, there’s the ability to add more files to OneDrive for Business; open documents, photos and videos; as well as edit your documents in Microsoft Office, or online with Office Web Apps.
To be able to use this enterprise cloud storage, you will need to have an account. If you don’t have one, you can sign up from within the app itself. Of course, you can use the app on Windows 8, Windows 8.1 and Windows RT, RT 8.1 touch and desktop devices. Follow the link from below to download and install it.
